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.Even though we'd been hearing that his statement would answer some of the questions surrounding the late night accident, the statement doesn't add anything to the conversation that we didn't already know. I agree that Tiger should be allowed some privacy surrounding the accident, but all the vagueness of this statement doesn't help whatsoever. All it will really do is add another round of news coverage as the pundits now discuss how his statement didn't answer any of the questions about where he was going at that hour or what conditions lead to the golfing star getting into the accident.
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.

Tiger Woods Issues Statement On Accident
There has been a lot of discussion about the accident Tiger Woods had over the holiday weekend. It's actually quite interesting how the cable news programs have actually been asking why this story has been receiving so much attention (though all that has really done is prolong the coverage). In several of these reports I've been hearing about how Tiger would be issuing a statement, which would have the potential of putting the story to rest. Well, earlier today he issued the following statement on his website regarding what happened.
