The first cliche Tiger Woods will use in his tightly controlled statement tomorrow will be "I regret the hurt I've caused." Or at least the odds on that are better than the odds on anything else, according to Irish bookmaker Paddy Power.

        Paddy Power has made that cliche the 7/2 favorite. "Thank my family" and "I'm sorry" are right behind at 5/1.

          The bookmaker is pretty sure Woods will play in a PGA Tour event in 2010--odds are 1/12. And Woods is the favorite to win the Masters, 5/2.

      Here's the full menu:
