Jamiee Grubbs, the first of a parade of women who have surfaced in the last two weeks as alleged former lovers of the married golfing star Tiger Woods, may have a word or two she would like to say to him. But first it was his wife, Elin Nordegren, that she addressed yesterday along the lines of "Oops, I'm sorry".

"I couldn't describe how remorseful I am to have hurt her family," Ms Grubbs, a New York cocktail waitress and cast member of Tool Academy on the cable network VH1, told the TV gossip show Extra last night.

Her comments came on the same day that NBC's morning programme, Today, broadcast old text messages allegedly sent between Woods and Ms Grubbs, who has spoken of having had over 20 sexual encounters with the golfer during an on-off affair that lasted for three years.

"Hey Sexy, I can't come out this week," one from him to her began. "Something came up family wise". She replies: "I hope everything is fine. I would have liked to see you." And he concludes: "We will make this happen."

If Ms Grubbs, 24, feels disappointed with Woods at the moment, it may be because she was apparently in the dark about the other women he was purportedly juggling while the two of them were seeing each other.

She told Extra that she had been hurt to learn about the other women, who have popped up in the media at a rate of roughly one a day since Woods destroyed the public façade of his life after crashing his car on 27 November.

Asked if she would consider returning to Woods in event that he and his wife were to break up, Ms Grubbs replied: "I don't know if I can put myself through that again."
