'Tiger meant nothing derogatory to any person or persons and apologizes for any offense caused,' IMG agent Mark Steinberg said on Woods' official Web site.
After finishing tied for third at the Masters on Sunday, Woods said, 'I putted atrociously today. Once I got on the greens, I was a spaz.'
The word 'spaz' is considered by some people a derogatory way of referring to someone with physical coordination problems.
