Tiger Woods says "I'm sorry"

In a speech the world has waited for for over 3 months, Tiger Woods said "I'm sorry" for his actions (February 19).

"I want to say to each of you [family, friends, business partners and fans] simply and directly: I am deeply sorry for my irresponsible, selfish behavior," said Woods, according to "I know people want to find out how I could be so selfish and so foolish. People want to know how I could have done these things to my wife Elin and to my children."

Before Woods could finish this statement, @LadyW87 of Twitter suggested that "Tiger is so ratchet. Apologies to folk who have nothing to do with your [adulterous affairs]," a statement that much of the blogosphere had agreed with.

"And while I have always tried to be a private person....," Woods continued. "There are some things I want to say. Elin and I have started the procress of discussing the damage caused by my behavior. My real apology...will come from my behavior. We have a lot to discuss. What we say to each other will remain between the two of us."

As he did when the news first broke of the crash and of his adulterous affairs, Woods is mostly keeping his mouth shut. The conference, which held a small group of reporters and 1 camera in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fl., was televised on a number of major networks, including CNN and CBS.

According to, Woods announced that he would return to golf, but that he does not "know when that day will be." He denied any rumors that Elin Nordegren, his wife, had struck him the night of the crash and had asked the media and press to "Please leave my wife and kids alone."

It is reported that Woods returned to his sex rehab program in Mississippi immediately after the conference was held.
