Tiger Taking Hiatus from Golf

Tiger Woods, one of the highest earning athletes ever, posted a statement on his Web site today saying he is “profoundly sorry” for the hurt his infidelity has caused, and will be taking an “indefinite break” from professional golf. “What's most important now is that my family has the time, privacy, and safe haven we will need for personal healing,” he wrote. This was Woods' first admission of infidelity since more than a dozen women, including some prostitutes, have claimed to have slept with him. ABCNews reports Woods may go to Sweden with his wife to hash out their problems. Meanwhile, Bloomberg reports one of Woods' sponsors has removed his photo from its Web site’s homepage.
