Tiger Woods Takes Leave From Golf
Tiger Woods said Friday he is taking an indefinite leave from golf to work on saving his marriage, using the word “infidelity” for the first time in a statement posted on his Web site.
“After much soul searching, I have decided to take an indefinite break from professional golf,” Woods said. “I need to focus my attention on being a better husband, father, and person.”
Woods and his wife, Elin, have been married five years and have a 2-year-old daughter and 10-month-old son.
The announcement came two weeks after a car accident set in motion a shocking downfall for the world’s No. 1 player, and included sordid allegations of numerous extramarital affairs. One woman even shared a voice mail she said Woods left her two nights before his Nov. 27 accident.
