'I've let my family down:' Tiger Woods apologies

Thursday December 3, 2009

Although he has not specifically acknowleged claims of an alleged affair, Tiger Woods has made a public apology for his "personal sins".

The golfing ace posted a statement on his website after a voicemail message - allegedly recorded by him for cocktail waitress Jaimee Grubbs - was released.

Tiger says he regrets his transgressions "with all of my heart" and promised to "strive to be a better husband and father that my family deserves".

"I am not without faults and I am far short of perfect. I am dealing with my behaviour and personal failings behind closed doors with my family.

"For all those who have supported me over the years, I offer my profound apology."

The sportsman, who has two young children, has been married to former nanny Elin Nordegren for five years.
