Nearly three months after the car crash that turned his world upside down, the disgraced golfer spoke to friends, family, business associates and a (very) small pool of reporters at a carefully-controlled press address this morning.
The take-home message: He's "deeply sorry," working on his marriage, despite the notable absence of wife Elin Nordegren at his address, and, as of tomorrow, will begin his 46th day in in-treatment therapy.
"Many of you in this room are my friends," he said during the emotional speech. "Many in this room know me. Many of you have cheered for me, or you worked with me, or you supported me. Now, every one of you has good reason to be critical of me. I want to say to each of you simply and directly: I am deeply sorry for my irresponsibility and selfish behavior I engaged in."
