Tiger Woods issues statement on his website: 'I'm not perfect.'

Here it is, Tiger Woods’ first public comment since driving into a fire hydrant in the middle of the night, in its entirety:

As you all know, I had a single-car accident earlier this week, and sustained some injuries. I have some cuts, bruising and right now I’m pretty sore.

This situation is my fault, and it’s obviously embarrassing to my family and me. I’m human and I’m not perfect. I will certainly make sure this doesn’t happen again.

This is a private matter and I want to keep it that way. Although I understand there is curiosity, the many false, unfounded and malicious rumors that are currently circulating about my family and me are irresponsible.

The only person responsible for the accident is me. My wife, Elin, acted courageously when she saw I was hurt and in trouble. She was the first person to help me. Any other assertion is absolutely false.

This incident has been stressful and very difficult for Elin, our family and me. I appreciate all the concern and well wishes that we have received. But, I would also ask for some understanding that my family and I deserve some privacy no matter how intrusive some people can be.

Plenty of room for speculation.  No direct mention of the alleged other woman, Rachel Uchitel, but certainly alludes to a domestic situation.  Tiger’s clearly trying to put the spotlight on himself — and away from his wife Elin.  Four lines that jump out:

“This situation is my fault.”

“I will certainly make sure this doesn’t happen again.”

“The only person responsible for the accident is me.”

“I’m human and I’m not perfect.”

Is he talking about driving into a fire hydrant or something more?  Anyone else see shades of David Letterman?

We all know there’s more to come from tmz.com and the National Enquirer.

UPDATE:

Police said Tiger Woods and his wife cancelled a third attempt for a post-accident interview.  This afternoon, police released the 911 call.  A distressed neighbor called 911 that night, stating “I have a neighbor, he hit the tree…”
