Tiger Woods’ “indefinite break” from golf is almost over as he officially announced his plan to return in time for the Masters which is set to begin on April 8th. In his words, “The Masters is where I won my first major and I view this tournament with great respect. After a long and necessary time away from the game, I feel like I’m ready to start my season at Augusta.”
Woods has been on hiatus from golf since November 15th when he won the Australian Open. It was nearly two weeks later that the world learned of his insatiable sexual appetite and its unfortunate affect on his marriage. TW admits, “I have undergone almost two months of inpatient therapy and I am continuing my treatment,” he said. “Although I’m returning to competition, I still have a lot of work to do in my personal life.”
Woods did his time at a Mississippi clinic from December 31 until February 11 followed by an additional week of family counseling at an Arizona facility. In the aftermath of this personal scandal going public, it remains to be seen how much this will affect his performance on the green – in addition to the impact of his sex addiction withdrawal on his overall conduct. In all likelihood, a grand return may be a bit premature, but it’s only Tiger who has the final say in this matter.
