Tiger Woods says he has let his family down and regrets "those transgressions with all of my heart."
In a statement Wednesday on his website, Woods says he has not been "true to my values and the behaviour my family deserves." He offered his "profound apology" to his supporters.
In his statement, Woods did not offer details of any alleged relationship.
He also said he has been "dismayed to realize the full extent of what tabloid scrutiny really means."

Woods regrets 'transgressions'
Reminds me of the joke about the cop who is called to settle a domestic dispute and walks in to see a woman holding a golf club over the body of her beaten husband. The hubby is a real mess so the cop asks:
"Jeez lady how many times did you hit him?" She replies I don't know, six, seven, eight. Oh I don't know, put me down for a seven!"
Golfers beware. There is a real lesson in this. Use the wood only on the tee or the fairway.

No, all that matters is he's damaged his wife and children forever (with the net, this story will be there for all time for them and their friends to read).
How is this different than Kobe Bryant???
The physical talent is immaterial as is the fact that none of us are perfect (so true).
The fact that he is gifted and wealthy makes it all the more tragic.
Forever a loser, Tiger.

Here it is in a nutshell. every time you buy a National Enquirerer or US magazine, you are hoping to find out gossip about someone famous, not news not something that can bring you knowledge and wisdom. You continue to make these magazines rich, and willing to pay anyone with a camera to take pictures of someone famous. Stop and think about it for a sec, you do a movie, become famous and then suddenly, people can walk up to you take your picture, and if their lucky enough to tick you off, get richer because you slugged them or ripped their camera from them.
I'd love to just follow around a normal person who loves to judge others all day, and just take pictures, goad into acting in a different way, and then post on the net.
We need laws that protect individuals, famous or not, that prevent these kind of infringements on personal liberties.
How about a law that charges those with publishing these stories.
Or how bout we go into everything everybody does, and have it disclosed.
Yes the computer is a lovely way of sharing information, but this is really to much.
News is supposed to be something that affects me in some way. Sports in itself affects me, but tiger's personal life does not.
I'm even upset with myself responding to this garbage.
