Woods says he regrets "transgressions"

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - He's not saying just what he did wrong, but Tiger Woods says he has let his family down with "transgressions" that he deeply regrets.

Woods is vowing to "strive to be a better person" -- and to be the husband and father that his family deserves.

His statement follows a report in Us Weekly magazine about a Los Angeles cocktail waitress who says she had a long affair with the golfer.

But the golfer is not offering any details. He says, "Personal sins should not require press releases and problems within a family shouldn't have to mean public confessions."

Meanwhile, authorities in Florida say Woods did more than $3,000 damage last week when he hit a hydrant and a tree with his car.
