PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Florida (Reuters) - Superstar golfer Tiger Woods, who took an indefinite break from the game in December after admitting he cheated on his wife, said on Friday he intended to return to professional golf one day, but he did not yet know when.
"I do plan to return to golf one day, I just don't know when that day will be. I don't rule out that it will be this year," said Woods, speaking at his first public appearance since the revelations of marital infidelity caused his spectacular fall from grace.
Woods, one of the great golfers of all time and a huge draw for sponsors, said that he had undergone 45 days of therapy and had "a long way to go."
He said he would be returning to the treatment center -- which he did not identify -- starting on Saturday.
The 34-year-old American was speaking to reporters at the headquarters of the U.S. PGA Tour in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.
