Tiger Woods

Following a flurry of controversial media coverage surrounding his personal life, Tiger Woods has announced that he is taking an “indefinite break” from golf.

The news was confirmed in a statement on the 33-year-old’s official website late on Friday night, where he also pleaded for privacy in order to focus his attention on “being a better husband, father and person.”

He said: “I am deeply aware of the disappointment and hurt that my infidelity has caused to so many people, most of all my wife and children. I want to say again to everyone that I am profoundly sorry and that I ask forgiveness. It may not be possible to repair the damage I’ve done, but I want to do my best to try.”

“I would like to ask everyone, including my fans, the good people at my foundation, business partners, the PGA Tour, and my fellow competitors, for their understanding. What’s most important now is that my family has the time, privacy, and safe haven we will need for personal healing.”

“After much soul searching, I have decided to take an indefinite break from professional golf. I need to focus my attention on being a better husband, father, and person.”

“Again, I ask for privacy for my family and I am especially grateful for all those who have offered compassion and concern during this difficult period.”
