PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Tiger Woods has apologized for having affairs and says he is unsure when he will return to competitive golf.
Woods spoke for more than 13 minutes Friday from the clubhouse at the TPC Sawgrass, home of the PGA Tour. About 40 people were in the room, including his mother. His wife was not obviously present.
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 insists 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' infidelity.
Friday's event was tightly controlled, with only a few journalists allowed to watch Woods live.
Woods was dressed in a suit with an open collar shirt. There were no visible marks on him.
