WINDERMERE, Florida (HawaiiNewsNow) - Tiger Woods is speaking out as allegations about his personal life erupt. The world's most famous athlete posted a statement on his web site on Wednesday that said he let his family down and he regrets "those transgressions with all of my heart."

In a statement on his Web site, the golfer says he has not been "true to my values and the behavior my family deserves." His comments come after Us Weekly magazine published a cover story alleging that a Los Angeles cocktail waitress had a 31-month affair with the world's No. 1 golfer.

Jamie Grubbs says she has proof in the form of 300 text messages and a voice mail she says Tiger Woods left her last week. Here's what Wood's alleged message to her said, "Hey, it's, uh, it's Tiger. I need you to do me a huge favor. Um, can you please, uh, take your name off your phone. My wife went through my phone. And, uh, may be calling you. If you can, please take your name off that and, um, and what do you call it just have it as a number on the voicemail, just have it as your telephone number. That's it, OK. You gotta do this for me. Huge. Quickly. All right. Bye."

Us weekly says they've checked out the waitress' story and the magazine believes it holds. The magazine's executive editor Caroline Schafer said, "you know it's Tiger Woods but we have done our due diligence and checked the numbers, it's definitely Tiger. "

Tiger Woods says he's dealing with his behavior and his personal failings behind closed doors. He says those feelings should be shared by his family, and his family alone. Woods offers a profound apology to all those who have supported him over the years.  Tiger says he will strive to be a better person, husband and father.

Yesterday, Florida troopers charged Woods with careless driving in the accident he had outside his home last week, and then closed the case.
