PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- Tiger Woods is telling his family, friends and fans that he is "deeply sorry" for his selfish and irresponsible behavior, and admitting to affairs.

Woods is speaking from the clubhouse at the TPC Sawgrass, home of the PGA Tour. About 40 people are in the room, including his mother. His wife is not obviously present.

Woods says he is solely responsible for his actions and was in treatment for 45 days and will return for more therapy. He also insists there were no instances of domestic abuse in his marriage.

The world's No. 1 golfer had not talked in public since his traffic accident Nov. 27 triggered shocking revelations about Woods' infidelity.

Friday's event was tightly controlled, with only a few journalists allowed to watch Woods live.

Woods was dressed in a suit with an open collar shirt. There were no visible marks on him.
