Woods in marriage therapy after admission of 'sins'

Los Angeles:

Tigers Woods was reportedly undergoing intense marriage counseling on Thursday, a day after the golf superstar admitted "transgressions" in his private life.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported Woods was holed up at the family home in Florida with his wife Elin as the steady stream of tabloid revelations concerning his alleged affairs showed no sign of abating.

A lawyer for the first woman linked to Woods - Rachel Uchitel - canceled a Los Angeles press conference citing "unforeseen circumstances" as fresh allegations about the woman and the world number one emerged.

The TMZ.com entertainment news website reported that Uchitel, who has denied an affair, did have a fling with Woods and that the couple exchanged text messages shortly before his car accident last week.

Woods has yet to be seen in public since he crashed his car in strange circumstances in the early morning hours on Friday outside the mansion where he lives with his wife and their two children.

He apologized on Wednesday for "transgressions" as a magazine posted what it said was evidence of an extra-marital affair between him and a second woman, cocktail waitress Jaimee Grubbs.

A third alleged mistress, Las Vegas night club manager Kalika Moquin, told celebrity magazine Us Weekly on Thursday that rumors of an affair between her and Woods were "completely untrue."

Meanwhile, the golfer's neighbors told police in subsequent interviews that Woods was "unconscious and snoring" immediately after last week's accident.

The neighbor, Jarius Lavar Adams, said he found Woods's wife standing over her husband outside begging for help. "She said, 'Can you please help me? Can you please help me?'" Adams said, according to a transcript of the interview published by the Orlando Sentinel.

The interview revealed that Woods's mother and his mother-in-law were on the scene soon after the accident. Woods has pulled out of the Chevron World Challenge outside Los Angeles, an 18-star golf event to benefit his charity foundation.

Fans at the tournament voiced support for Woods on Thursday as the tournament teed off.

"I'm sorry it's so public," Cynthia Camp said. "Everyone's talking about it of course, but all of my friends are very supportive of Tiger... All around the world there's chaos going on, and all we hear about is poor Tiger."

Yet the golfing legend's personal transgressions were too much to take for one of his most devout followers.

John Ziegler, pastor of the "First Church of Tiger Woods," announced in a statement on the blog tigerwoodsisgod.com that the organization is being dissolved because of the golfer's "personal sins."

"Tiger is clearly no longer deserving of being seen as a role model or a hero and he has needlessly squandered his unique potential to be a positive force in our country and the world," Ziegler opined.
