Woods released a statement to the media today addressing his personal matters.
Three days after Tiger Woods denounced as false the flood of speculation surrounding his auto accident, including reports of alleged infidelity, the golfer on Wednesday apologized for "transgressions" that "let my family down." Mr. Woods, who hasn't spoken publicly since the crash last Friday, released a statement on his Web site, regretting "personal behavior" that he didn't specify. "I will strive to be a better person and the husband and father that my family deserves," he said. He also said he and his wife, Elin Nordegren, have been "hounded to expose intimate details of our personal lives" and insisted that his family be allowed to cope privately. (Wall Street Journal)
The athlete's current situation has also taken on a variety of spoofs and caught the attention of a few businesses.
Some companies were capitalizing on Woods' woes, proving the golfer could make them a buck even if he they didn't have a contract with him. Discount Florida carrier Spirit Airlines greeted visitors to its website yesterday with an animated car being driven into a hydrant by a solemn tiger wearing a golf cap. The gimmick: an "eye of the tiger sale" with fares starting at $9. (New York Daily News)
