Tiger Woods has apologized for having affairs and says he is unsure when he will return to competitive golf.
"I was unfaithful. I had affairs. I cheated. What I did was not acceptable," said Woods, looking composed and speaking in a steady voice.
Woods spoke for about 15 minutes from the clubhouse at the TPC Sawgrass, home of the PGA Tour. About 40 people were in the room, including his mother. His wife, Elin, was not present.
As for coming back to the PGA Tour, Woods said: "I do plan to return to golf one day. I just don't know when that day will be. I don't rule out it will be this year."
Woods said he is solely responsible for his actions and was in treatment for 45 days. He said he will return for more therapy. He also insisted there were no instances of domestic abuse in his marriage.
The world's No. 1 golfer had not talked in public since his traffic accident Nov. 27 triggered shocking revelations about Woods' serial infidelity.
Friday's event was tightly controlled, with only a few journalists allowed to watch Woods live.

    Nothing will stop a Buck when he needs to rut.

    He'll do it again, because he can.

    It is amazing that this apology was carried live on the major US and Canadian channels.

    How low are the levels we will stoop to?

    Probably didn't get much of chance to fool around when his father was alive. Should never have gotten married. That being said; what does it have to do with his golf game?
