Tiger Woods Admits Infidelity, Takes Break From Golf
Tiger Woods has issued a statement on his website confessing he has, in fact, been unfaithful.
"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," Woods writes.
Last week, the golfer, 33, admitted to "transgressions" in a statement, but did not directly address extramarital affairs.
He added, "It may not be possible to repair the damage I've done, but I want to do my best to try."
Woods says he's taking an "indefinite break from professional golf" to focus attention on "being a better husband, father and person."
On Nov. 30, Woods announced he would not be attending his own charity golf tournament, the Chevron World Challenge, or any other remaining tournaments in 2009.
