Tiger Woods Takes to Web to Apologize for 'Transgressions'

Tiger Woods has had little to say publicly since his car accident sparked a media frenzy over his personal life, but he used his Web site Wednesday to apologize for unspecified “transgressions.”

“I have let my family down and I regret those transgressions with all of my heart,” he wrote. “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.”

Mr. Woods, who was fined for the car crash but won’t face any criminal charges, added that he’s been “dismayed” by what he called tabloid scrutiny of him and his wife, Elin Nordegren.

“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.”
