By skipping his tournament, Woods was able to escape the TV cameras and a horde of media seeking more details. The event was to be the last of the year for Woods anyway, and he did not say when or where he would make his return next year.
But Woods remained the subject of intense media scrutiny, and the Us Weekly report didn't help his appeal for privacy.
According to the magazine Grubbs said she was 21 when she was approached by Woods at a Las Vegas nightclub on April 13, 2007. The magazine said the meeting "progressed into a clandestine on-and-off affair" that lasted nearly three years and included hundreds of texts.
"I hope he can forgive me for doing this and I know he probably can't," Grubbs is quoted as saying. "Whatever happens with Elin, I hope Tiger and I can reconnect and remain good friends."
Reached in Sweden on Wednesday, Woods' father-in-law, Thomas Nordegren said: "I don't want to comment on this whatsoever."
An AP reporter went to a residence in Escondido, Calif., seeking comment from Grubbs. A person who identified himself as Cody came to the door and didn't open it but said she wasn't there.
Grubbs recently appeared on VH1's reality series, "Tool Academy."
