Tiger Woods: 'I'm truly sorry'

PONTE VEDRA, FL (NBC) Tiger Woods broke his silence Friday sounding at times near tears.The superstar golfer admitted he cheated on his wife and let down those who believed in him.

And again and again Woods said he was sorry saying he would work hard to win back the trust he's lost.

What Woods did not say was when he will play golf again.

That surprised some who did not expect such a personal and painful display from the disgraced golfing great.

Woods came into the room alone, without his wife, Elin Nordegren.

He apologized emotionally and repeatedly to his family and everyone else.

"I wanna say I am deeply sorry for the irresponsible behavior I engaged in. I was unfaithful. I had affairs. I cheated. What I did was not acceptable and I am the only person to blame," said Woods.

Elin, said Tiger, did not attack him over Thanksgiving, or any other time.

"She is not at fault."

He blamed himself for thinking standards don't apply to him.

"I was wrong I was foolish. I don't get to play by different rules."

Woods did not, as expected, announce when he'll play competitive golf again.

Instead he said he's going back into therapy.

"Today I want to ask for your help. I ask you to find room in your heart to one day believe in me again."

Now he says he'll study the Buddhism taught him by his mother and continue discussions he's started with his wife about their future.

Woods pleaded with the tabloid press to leave his family alone.

He's been so private many expected a cold and distant Tiger Woods Friday. Not the man who today looked broken.
