“Hey, it’s, uh, it’s Tiger. I need you to do me a huge favor. Um, can you please, uh, take your name off your phone. My wife went through my phone. And, uh, may be calling you."

Woods has been subjected to more media headlines during the last week than when he first won the Masters in 1997 and set off the first wave of Tigermania. He has spoken only three times through his Web site, although this was his longest posting.

“Although I am a well-known person and have made my career as a professional athlete, I have been dismayed to realize the full extent of what tabloid scrutiny really means,” Woods said.

SHOOT: So is it fair that you only get good press Tiger? It's a double edged sword. I find it incredible how naive public figures are about indulging in private activities and thinking they have a right to do this? Public figures are held in esteem by large audiences, and so are more accountable to good behaviour. KOO KOO.

“I have let my family down and I regret those transgressions with all of my heart,” he said.

“I will strive to be a better person and the husband and father that my family deserves,” Woods said. “For all of those who have supported me over the years, I offer my profound apology.”

FILE - This is a Nov. 21, 2009, file photo showing Tiger Woods with his daughter, Sam, and wife, Elin, before the start of an NCAA college football game between Stanford and California,  in Stanford, Calif.  Tiger Woods said he let his family down with transgressions he regrets

The cocktail waitress, Jaimee Grubbs, told the magazine she met Woods at a Las Vegas nightclub the week after the 2007 Masters—two months before Woods’ wife, Elin, gave birth to their first child. Grubbs claims to have proof in 300 text messages.

About three hours before Woods’ statement, the magazine published what it said was a voicemail—provided by Grubbs—that Woods left on her phone on Nov. 24, three days before his middle-of-the-night car crash outside his home in Florida.
