Tiger sheds little light on 2010 Masters prospects

  • Follow Golf

Tiger Woods will play golf again, but whether he will tee it up at this year's Masters Tournament is unclear.

The world's No. 1 golfer apologized Friday for his marital infidelity and admitted he was undergoing therapy in his first public appearance since a sex scandal drove him into seclusion.

"I do plan to return to golf one day; I just don't know when that day will be," Woods said in front of a small gathering of family, friends and business associates in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. "I don't rule out that it will be this year. When I do return, I need to make my behavior more respectful of the game."

Officials at Augusta National Golf Club said they have not received any word from Woods, a four-time winner of the Masters, about his plans. The 2010 Masters Tournament is scheduled for April 8-11.

Speaking in the clubhouse at TPC Sawgrass, the home of the PGA Tour, Woods talked for nearly 15 minutes. No questions were allowed to be asked by those in attendance.

"For all that I have done, I am so sorry," Woods said.
