Tiger Woods is reportedly in his Florida mansion taking time off and trying to recoup from the injuries he sustained during an accident outside his house in Nov 2009.
Woods' multiple extramarital affairs were exposed after his car accident.
"I am deeply aware of the disappointment and hurt that my infidelity has caused to so many people, most of all my wife and children. I want to say again to everyone that I am profoundly sorry and that I ask forgiveness," an apologetic Woods wrote on his website.
