At last, someone has explained the mystery of Tiger Woods: John Mayer!

The wacky musician offers his unique thoughts on Tiger's troubles with women -- and dirty text messages -- to British paper The Independent.

Oh, Tiger: recap his disastrous holiday season

"Tiger Woods' problems come from him being married. The end," Mayer declares. "It has nothing to do with control." Referring to the incriminating text messages Woods sent to his mistress Jaimee Grubbs, Mayer adds, "If Tiger Woods was a single guy, what sort of angle would there be to a text message? If Tiger Woods was single, and he texted a girl and said 'I wanna wear your ass like a hat', why would that ever hit the news?"

Mayer, 32, who has famously dated Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Simpson among others, admits that, as an un-married bachelor, he's "sexted" with many women. "I write a lot of dirty text messages to girls, and you've never seen any of them. Why? Because if a girl brought a dirty text message from me to the newspapers, they'd say 'I don't have an angle here. Someone wants to wear your ass like a hat? Big deal. He's 32 years old. He's a single guy. If John Mayer has a wife and sends dirty texts, then we got a story.'"

In fact, the Woods scandal, Mayer suggests, should improve his own uneven public reputation: "With this whole Tiger Woods situation...I wish more people would be like, 'You know what, Mayer? You didn't f*** up at all.'"
