Two days after his single-car accident, Tiger Woods has released a statement. He says the rumors are not true, but he doesn’t specifically address a rumor of an affair, as reported by the National Enquirer.
Here’s Tiger’s Web site.
And here’s his statement:
“As you all know, I had a single-car accident earlier this week, and sustained some injuries. I have some cuts, bruising and right now I’m pretty sore.
This situation is my fault, and it’s obviously embarrassing to my family and me. I’m human and I’m not perfect. I will certainly make sure this doesn’t happen again.
This is a private matter and I want to keep it that way. Although I understand there is curiosity, the many false, unfounded and malicious rumors that are currently circulating about my family and me are irresponsible.
The only person responsible for the accident is me. My wife, Elin, acted courageously when she saw I was hurt and in trouble. She was the first person to help me. Any other assertion is absolutely false.
This incident has been stressful and very difficult for Elin, our family and me. I appreciate all the concern and well wishes that we have received. But, I would also ask for some understanding that my family and I deserve some privacy no matter how intrusive some people can be.”
With little explanation as to why Tiger Woods was leaving his Isleworth mansion at 2:25 a.m. Friday when he crashed into a fire hydrant and neighbor’s tree, the tabloids are already abuzz about the possibilities …
TMZ.com reported Woods and wife Elin were fighting in the early morning hours after Thanksgiving.
The crash came on the heels of reports in the National Enquirer and Star magazine that Woods had an affair with Rachel Uchitel, a New York nightclub hostess. Woods is on the front page of this week’s Enquirer under the headline “Tiger Woods Cheating Scandal.”
Tiger Woods was injured in a one-car accident near his Florida home early this morning. Reports are that he’s been released from the hospital with facial lacertaions. No word yet as to whether this affects his play in the Chevron World Challenge, which starts Thursday at Sherwood Country Club. Here’s the story.
You thought the PGA Tour implementing testing for steroids was a bit ridiculous, eh? I mean, what golfer would turn to steroids to help their game? Seems crazy, but the Tour had its first player – Doug Barron – fail a test. Here’s the story.
