Professional golfer Tiger Woods currently in the middle of an affair scandal which was uncovered the day after Thanksgiving apologized on his website Sunday to Chevron for being unable to fulfill my duties as host and player in this important event.

Here follows the apology Tiger Woods posted on his website:

As the final round of the Chevron World Challenge begins, I would like to extend my heartfelt thank you to everyone affiliated with the event, especially our amazing title sponsor, Chevron. They've been title sponsor for the last two years and have a vision and passion for creating real opportunities for my Foundation. I thank them for their ongoing commitment.

I'd also like to thank all of our supporting sponsors and my tireless, dedicated staff, board and volunteers who collectively produce this first-class golf tournament. I am so grateful to them for their efforts, and I am sincerely sorry I was unable to fulfill my duties as host and player in this important event.

 There are also 18 outstanding pros in the field, and I thank them for providing us all with some excellent competition this week.

 Lastly, I'd like to thank our fans for continuing to support us. Like them, I am extremely dedicated to this tournament, to my Foundation and the millions of young lives we serve. Thank you all for your support.
