A lawyer for a New York woman who has denied having an affair with Tiger Woods has canceled a news conference that had been scheduled for today in Los Angeles.

Attorney Gloria Allred's office says in a statement that the news conference has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. The statement does not elaborate on the circumstances.

Allred earlier had planned to make a statement about 34-year-old Rachel Uchitel's relationship with Woods.

Last week, the National Enquirer published a story alleging the world's No. 1 golfer had been seeing Uchitel, a New York nightclub hostess, and that they recently were together in Melbourne, where Woods competed in the Australian Masters.

The 33-year-old billionaire golfer apologised yesterday for letting his family down in a statement that alluded to "personal sins" and the forced exposure of "intimate details" of his life.

Speculation has mounted over the golfer's personal life since he crashed his car into a fire hydrant and tree outside his home in Florida in the early hours of Friday morning.
