is heading back to rehab after taking time out from sex addiction therapy to address his fans, friends and the media about his bad behavior in relation to a series of infidelities, which hit the headlines in November 2009. During a 15-minute press conference at TPC Sawgrass, the home of the Professional Golf Association Tour, in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, the sportsman spoke to a select, invitation-only group of friends, peers and journalists.
With his mother seated directly in front of him and wife nowhere to be seen, a stoic Woods said, "Many of you in this room are my friends, many in this room know me, many of you have cheered for me, worked with me or supported me. Now, every one of you has good reason to be critical of me... I am deeply sorry for my irresponsible and selfish behavior I engaged in."
