Woods, 33, is facing a fine but no criminal action for his accident, when his SUV struck a fire hydrant and then a tree outside his neighbour's house in Windermere, Florida.
The world No 1 golfer held a press conference attended by the world's tabloids, at which he admitted to steamy clubhouse romps with an entire college cheerleading team.
Choking back tears, Tiger apologised to his wife and fans for the embarrassment he had caused them, saying, "I couldn't resist it. With all the adulation, the temptation became impossible to resist, so I ended up doing things I regret with these girls.
"It became the case that off the course, the only wood I could get was when I played 18 holes all at once".
