WINDERMERE, Florida -- Tiger Woods says he and his family "deserve some privacy" regarding the circumstances surrounding his car accident just outside his Florida home early Friday morning.

But public relations experts say he's not likely to get it.

One PR expert says the goal of a statement is to answer such questions and move beyond the crisis. But Mike Paul of MGP & Associates says the one on Woods' Web site leaves more than a dozen questions unanswered that affect the golfer's reputation.

Woods turned away troopers seeking to interview him for a third and possibly final time on Sunday. The Florida Highway Patrol says it might seek out others who were at the scene.

Meanwhile, rumors continue to swirl over where he might have been going, how he lost control of his SUV when he was going so slowly that the air bags didn't deploy and why both rear windows were smashed. And tabloid stories have been circulating alleging an affair.
