Tiger Woods' self-imposed exile from golf is ending in April at the Masters.
Woods announced on Tuesday that he'd be returning to the sport that made him famous at Augusta National. "The major championships have always been a special focus in my career and, as a professional, I think Augusta is where I need to be, even though it's been a while since I last played," said Woods in a statement.
Since leaving golf indefinitely in December, Woods has been the subject of rampant speculation and tabloid fodder following his admittance of affairs with multiple women.
Tiger continued, "The Masters is where I won my first major and I view this tournament with great respect. After a long and necessary time away from the game, I feel like I'm ready to start my season at Augusta." Woods will be skipping an exhibition at his home course, Isleworth outside Orlando, Fla. next week, in addition to the Arnold Palmer Invitational, a tournament he's won six times previously.
