Tiger Woods Puts Golf on Hold Indefinitely

Tiger Woods has announced he will be taking an indefinite break from the golf to focus on his family.

"I am deeply aware of the disappointment and hurt that my infidelity has caused to so many people, most of all my wife and children," Woods said in a statement posted on his Web site. "I want to say again to everyone that I am profoundly sorry and that I ask forgiveness. It may not be possible to repair the damage I've done, but I want to do my best to try.

"After much soul searching, I have decided to take an indefinite break from professional golf," the golfer writes. "I need to focus my attention on being a better husband, father, and person.

"I would like to ask everyone, including my fans, the good people at my foundation, business partners, the PGA Tour, and my fellow competitors, for their understanding," he adds.

"What's most important now is that my family has the time, privacy, and safe haven we will need for personal healing. Again, I ask for privacy for my family and I am especially grateful for all those who have offered compassion and concern during this difficult period."

Woods and wife Elin Nordegren have two children - daughter Sam, 2, and son Charlie, 10 months.
