Tigers Press Conference

Tiger Wood Press Conference is now over.  I am glad it went well for him and now let the has been haters and the new haters jump on him even more. He admitted it and now he has to try and fix it, if Elin lets him.  If she doesnt then he needs to at least try and be a better father.


PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- A watery-eyed and contrite Tiger Woods said Friday he was sorry for the "irresponsible and selfish behavior I engaged in," the first time he has publicly addressed the shocking and sordid sex scandal that has consumed his life since late November.

Tiger Woods Statement

"I know I have bitterly disappointed all of you," Woods said, speaking in front of his mother, Kultida, PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem, friends and selected media inside the TPC Sawgrass, home of the PGA Tour. "I am embarrassed that I have put you in this position. I have a lot to atone for.

"I was unfaithful. I had affairs. I cheated. What I did was unacceptable and I am the only person to blame."

His wife, Elin, did not appear to be in the room.

Woods, who was wearing a blue blazer and button-down shirt, spoke for 13½ minutes. He said he does not know when his indefinite break from golf will end, adding he would not rule out playing at some point in 2010.

"When I do return, I need to make my behavior more respectful of the game," he said.

Woods said he was in therapy from mid-December to early February "to receive guidance for the issues I am facing." Woods said he will continue therapy and treatment "starting tomorrow."

"I have a long way to go," he said.

Woods also addressed two matters in particular that clearly have angered him.

On the night of Nov. 27 when he crashed his SUV outside his home, which signaled the unraveling of his personal life, Woods said he and Elin did not fight prior to the accident and that there have been no instances of domestic violence at any point in their relationship.

Woods also said speculation that he has used performance-enhancing substances "is completely and utterly false."

"Every one of you has good reason to be critical of me,"

"I want to say to each of you, simply and directly, I am deeply sorry for my irresponsible and selfish behavior I engaged in. 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. And while I have always tried to be a private person, there are some things I want to say.

"Elin and I have started the process of discussing the damage caused by my behavior. As Elin pointed out to me, my real apology to her will not come in the form of words. It will come from my behavior over time. We have a lot to discuss. However, what we say to each other will remain between the two of us."

"I was unfaithful," Woods said. "I had affairs. I cheated. What I did was not acceptable, and I am the only person to blame."

I didn't see the actual conference and I really don't want to. I've heard the DJ's talking about it and they played a little bit of what he said. They were making fun of how robotic and practiced he seemed, as well as his heavy pronounciation of the letter "t" in some of his words. What's up with that?

I do wish him and his family well and I hope for his wife's sake and his children's sake that he can be a better man.

I have to watch it later so I can pay attention to it. I am hoping he sounds a little more human and sad. Watch it later on ESPN and then you and Tim get some ICE CREAM

I saw it all at work-- watched it with my co-workers (it's the big story in my 5pm newscast, so it was part of my job!). I believe he's sorry... that he got caught.

Oh, and my DH is the man... he was rewarded for his efforts with a nice big steak and a 34 oz draft!
