Superstar golfer Tiger Woods has apologized for cheating on his wife but says he is unsure about when he will return to the sport.

Speaking at a press conference on Friday, Woods said he has been in treatment for 45 days and will return for more therapy.

He also says he has more work to do to resolve his personal problems. It is the first time Woods has spoken in public since the traffic accident on November the 27th triggered revelations about his infidelity and led to him taking a break from golf.

Tiger Woods, Golfer, said, "The issue involved here was my repeated irresponsible behavior. I was unfaithful, I had affairs, I cheated. What I did is not acceptable and I am the only person to blame. I stopped living by the core values that I was taught to believe in. I knew my actions were wrong but I convinced myself that normal rules didn't apply. I never thought about who I was hurting, instead I thought only about myself."
