Tiger Woods apologizes for 'transgressions'

Posted on

In a statement posted on his website, Tiger Woods admitted he had “let [his] family down” and apologized for his “transgressions.” The online statement, his second since a car-accident last Friday, came just hours after US Weekly published claims from a Los Angeles woman that she had a relationship with the married golfer. “I am not without faults and I am far from perfect,” wrote Woods. “I am dealing with my behavior and personal failings behind closed doors with my family.” Woods also reiterated his right to privacy: “Personal sins should not require press releases and problems within a family shouldn’t have to mean public confessions.”
