After several women have come forward stating they had affairs with golfer Tiger Woods, he has been forced to admit he cheated on his wife, Elin Nordegren. Read below for Tiger Woods’ apology for his “transgressions”. But will Tigers apology be enough to keep Elin from divorcing him?
Golfer Tiger Woods offered a “profound apology” to his family and his fans on Wednesday and admitted he had “not been true to my values”. This admission from Tiger comes as a third woman named Kalika Moquin states she also had an affair with Tiger.
“I have let my family down and I regret those transgressions with all of my heart,” Woods wrote on his Web site.
“I have not been true to my values and the behavior my family deserves.”
“I am dealing with my behavior and personal failings behind closed doors with my family,” he wrote in a plea for privacy.
“Those feelings should be shared by us alone.”
Woods said some of the statements made recently were “utterly false and malicious,” specifically reports of domestic violence between him and his wife Elin Nordegren.
He also promised to “strive to be a better person and the husband and father that my family deserves.”
The third woman that has come forward, Kalika Moquin, didn’t actually kiss and tell. “It’s not appropriate for me to comment one way or the other,” Moquin told the magazine. “At this time, I’m just choosing to focus on my job.”
Kalika, a brunette marketing manager for The Bank nightclub in Las Vegas, hooked up with Tiger Woods more than once at his Las Vegas hotel during the weekend of Oct. 23, the magazine reported.
They cited “an insider” as its source.
“They’ve hooked up a bunch of times,” the source said. “Tiger told Kalika that married life isn’t all it’s built up to be.
He said he wasn’t happy in his marriage or his home life and that there was just so much pressure on him.”
The other woman that have had affairs with Tiger included club promoter Rachel Uchitel, 34, and Los Angeles cocktail waitress Jaimee Grubbs, 23. ,
Here is Tiger Woods’ full apology:
I have let my family down and I regret those transgressions with all of my heart. I have not been true to my values and the behavior my family deserves.
I am not without faults and I am far short of perfect. I am dealing with my behavior and personal failings behind closed doors with my family.
Those feelings should be shared by us alone. 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.
For the last week, my family and I have been hounded to expose intimate details of our personal lives.
The stories in particular that physical violence played any role in the car accident were utterly false and malicious.
Elin has always done more to support our family and shown more grace than anyone could possibly expect.
But no matter how intense curiosity about public figures can be, there is an important and deep principle at stake which is the right to some simple, human measure of privacy.
I realize there are some who don’t share my view on that.
But for me, the virtue of privacy is one that must be protected in matters that are intimate and within one’s own family.
Personal sins should not require press releases and problems within a family shouldn’t have to mean public confessions.
Whatever regrets I have about letting my family down have been shared with and felt by us alone.
I have given this a lot of reflection and thought and I believe that there is a point at which I must stick to that principle even though it’s difficult.
I will strive to be a better person and the husband and father that my family deserves. For all of those who have supported me over the years, I offer my profound apology.
