From Mr. Privacy:

I have let my family down and I regret those transgressions with all of my heart. 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. Those feelings should be shared by us alone.

Although I am a well-known person and have made my career as a professional athlete, I have been dismayed to realize the full extent of what tabloid scrutiny really means. For the last week, my family and I have been hounded to expose intimate details of our personal lives. The stories in particular that physical violence played any role in the car accident were utterly false and malicious. Elin has always done more to support our family and shown more grace than anyone could possibly expect.

Next time Mr. Privacy wants privacy, he should remember that sexting is not “off the record.” [Added: Leaving voice messages asking your mistress to expect a call from your wife, doesn’t help either.]

Does this close the case on the use of a golf club? He lied to us before, so why should we believe him now?

Update: My wife feels I missed an opportunity here to title the post “Tiger Caught by Tail.” But Jake Tapper already took credit for that line, so I’m late as usual.
