Tiger Woods, his daughter Sam and wife Elin are seen before the start of a college football game between Stanford and California in Stanford, Calif., on Nov. 21.

WINDERMERE, Fla. (AP) -- Tiger Woods says the car crash that sent him to the hospital is his fault and has become embarrassing to him and his family, and for the third straight day canceled a meeting with state troopers.

Sgt. Kim Montes of the Florida Highway Patrol said Woods' lawyer did not reschedule the meeting.

In a statement posted Sunday on his Web site about an hour before he was meet with troopers, Woods says his wife, Elin, acted "courageously" when she saw that he was hurt. He says any other assertion is "absolutely false."

Woods says he understands there is curiosity about the accident. He says the "malicious" rumors circulating about him and his family are irresponsible.

The world's No. 1 golfer says he has cuts and bruising and is "pretty sore."

    I see where they want his medical records, but good luck on that. Probably percocet,vicodin, or he simply cannot drive. Either way, he is still making money for the tour, and that will NEVER change

    Who cares about Tiger Woods He makes big money by hitting a little white ball in a small round hole. "Takes brains?" What gets me is why Tiger like OJ always go for the white blonds?

    tiger has really become a snob since getting rich & marrying elin. he was my favorite golfer, but not any more. he can cramp his money & snobby attitude up the rear as far as i'm concerned.

    tiger & wife had a lavish wedding with only the best VIPs invited. too bad it may have been for nothing. if tiger is cheating, elin will take everything he's got & he'll end up broke. hope tiger's not that ignorant, but sounds like he just might be.
