Feathersound, Florida - Too little, too late.

That was reaction from fans and non-fans alike, after they watched Tiger Woods' statement from Courtside Grille in Feathersound Friday.

Many thought the statement was disingenuous and too scripted.

At least one woman felt that Woods' mention of 45 days spent at an in-patient facility was a cop-out.

"I think that it's not a sickness," said Cheyanne Carvalho.  "I think that's just what he wanted to do.  He wanted to have sex with women, and that's what he did."

Still, most people agreed with Woods' request that the media keep its distance from his wife and children.

"If [media outlets] are going to follow people and criticize people, it should be him," said Susan Howard.  "They should leave his mother, his kids and his wife alone."

Another point that resonated with fans was Woods' admittance that a fame-induced sense of entitlement helped him justify cheating on his wife.

"A lot of people in celebrity athletics think they are above the rules and think they can get away with certain things that a lot of people couldn't," said Jessica McCall.  "There's a value on marriage, and he broke that.  And I don't care how famous you are.  You should never do that."

It was supposed to be damage control, but in the end, the damage may have already been done.
