Woods was involved in a one-car accident in the driveway of his mansion on Friday. He sustained facial lacerations and bruises that TMZ.com claimed were inflicted by his wife Elin Nordegren-Woods after the two argued about his rumored infidelity with an industry trollop.
Meanwhile, Woods canceled a 3rd scheduled meeting with FHP officers who sought to interview Woods and his wife about the accident.
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.
This statement can be taken one of two ways: Either Tiger is admitting to having a substance abuse problem that led to his car accident (addiction to pain killers maybe?) or he really is telling the truth and Elin didn't go upside his head with one of his own golf clubs.
