(Newser) – In a statement posted on his website, Tiger Woods apologizes for unnamed “transgressions” and admits that he “let my family down.” The golf phenom bemoans the “tabloid scrutiny” currently invading his privacy, but promises that “I will strive to be a better person and the husband and father that my family deserves.” No word on which, if any, of his three (so far!) alleged galpals are the real deal, but the golfer does applaud his wife’s “grace.”
