Tiger Woods admitted in a statement  posted on his website today, that he let his family down and regrets his transgressions with all his heart.

Woods had been in the public spotlight for the past five days since he crashed his car outside his home Friday. He was surrounded by a storm of allegations that he had several extra marital affairs with multiple women.

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, Woods stated today.

The statement came as a third woman appeared claiming she had also romantic encounters with Woods.

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, Woods ended.
