Tiger Woods Releases Apology Letter

Tiger Woods Releases Apology Letter

Tiger Woods just issued a statement on his official website. Check out the full apology letter from the 33-year-old professional golfer:

“I have let my family down and I regret those transgressions with all of my heart. I have not been true to my values and the behavior my family deserves. I am not without faults and I am far short of perfect. I am dealing with my behavior and personal failings behind closed doors with my family. Those feelings should be shared by us alone.

“Although I am a well-known person and have made my career as a professional athlete, I have been dismayed to realize the full extent of what tabloid scrutiny really means. For the last week, my family and I have been hounded to expose intimate details of our personal lives. The stories in particular that physical violence played any role in the car accident were utterly false and malicious. [My wife] Elin has always done more to support our family and shown more grace than anyone could possibly expect.

“But no matter how intense curiosity about public figures can be, there is an important and deep principle at stake which is the right to some simple, human measure of privacy. I realize there are some who don’t share my view on that. But for me, the virtue of privacy is one that must be protected in matters that are intimate and within one’s own family. Personal sins should not require press releases and problems within a family shouldn’t have to mean public confessions.

“Whatever regrets I have about letting my family down have been shared with and felt by us alone. I have given this a lot of reflection and thought and I believe that there is a point at which I must stick to that principle even though it’s difficult.

“I will strive to be a better person and the husband and father that my family deserves. For all of those who have supported me over the years, I offer my profound apology.”

    Obviously everyone knows he’s cheating? I dunno, I’m asking cause people are accusing. What I don’t understand is, if he wants it to be private, don’t apologize publicly. No point. If you’re apologizing to the public, let them KNOW what you’re apologizing for. Whatever, I say.

    IDIOT Says:

    He’s a idiot who seems to think he can do anything because he’s “Tiger Woods”. SHAME ON YOU TIGER. I hope your wife does leave you and then maybe you’ll really appreciate what a beautiful family you did have.

    Clair Says:

    Well I hope his wife realizes ….ONCE A CHEATER ALWAYS A CHEATER. He ain’t gonna change his spots he’ll just get better at hiding them.

    He maybe he can join Jon Gosselin in the Divorced Dads Swingers Club now?

    What the heck is he talking about? Is this some sort of roundabout admission? Or just a bogey? Ha ha – sorry, I couldn’t resist the lame golf humor.

    If he did cheat on that gorgeous wife of his, WOW! Another bites the dust – or turf, as they might say in the golf world.

    Katelyn Says:

    Good grief. They say he was cheating even before his first child was born. What a scumbag Tiger is!!!
    Not SO SQUEEKY CLEAN now are you? We can see your filth.

    well Says:

    Well it seems like he’s got quite the harem. So many women while married and when he wasn’t, how do you think he got Elin? Oh well..whatever….

    dani Says:

    He doesn’t owe us or anyone else an apology–with the exception of his family. Just because he cheats doesn’t meant the world needs all the details. He was stupid tho to pick women that immediately ran out and sold their story to everyone under the sun. If people are going to cheat, then at least have the smarts to choose a person who won’t sell you out at the first sign of a dollar. Better for you; definitely better for your family.

    @julie: Exactly! Don’t make a public statement if you want it to remain private. Let people speculate all they want but don’t encourage it!

    anon Says:

    Since this accident, there have been many holes in this story and his statement the other day was cryptic but understandable to many who can read between the lines. Now this statement. A sly way of saying yeah, I cheated.

    zzzz Says:

    So, he’s admitted that the incident was related to marital problems but he still won’t own up to hopw his face got cut up? I guess he doesn’t want to get his wife in trouble.

    observer Says:

    I don’t CARE!!! Your personal life is NONE of my business. No one is PERFECT! Just PLAY GOLF AND WIN MORE CHAMPIONSHIPS! That’s ALL I CARE ! (on a side note, get marriage counseling or go back to ZEN meditation get your balance back.

    lol Says:

    He apologized because the tabs have him on the cover. Normally being on the lying tabs all the time (like Brangelina or TomKat), nobody gives a rat’s you know what. It’s every freaking week but when there’s someone NEW and NEVER before seen EVERYONE notices and pays attention lol

    No surprise here, we always knew Tiger could always put in the hole

    At Popsugar they have the voice message from him.,0#comment-6554837

    I really hope his wife dumps this scumbag.

    Now the paprazzi chase is on to see who will get the first pic of Tiger whenever he leaves his house

    ? Says:


    I thought the vows were for better or for worse? Doesn’t this qualify as worse?

  24. 24
    Kelly Says:

    His apology totally sucked in my opinion. He doesn’t mean it. He’s too arogant to really apologize. He’ll apologize to his wife, when she calms down he will continue cheating.

    His wife should take the kids and take him to the cleaners while he’s still worth something.

    I predict his career will go straight downhill now.
