Tiger Woods said he will return to golf next month at the Masters. Woods has not competed since Nov. 15 when he won the Australian Masters for his 82nd victory worldwide. “The Masters is where I won my first major and I view this tournament with great respect,” Woods said in a statement. “After a long and necessary time away from the game, I feel like I’m ready to start my season at Augusta.” This will end a four month hiatus brought on by a sex scandal. Allegations of womanizing began to emerge on Nov. 27 when he fled his house in the middle of the night crashing his SUV over a fire hydrant and into a tree. He eventually confessed to infidelity and said Dec. 11 he would take an “indefinite break” from golf.

Woods is a four-time Masters champion. Woods has been the biggest draw at the Masters ever since he became its youngest champion at 21 in 1997, when he broke the tournament scoring record with a 12-shot victory. Woods twice has come into a major after a long layoff without playing, with mixed results—he missed the cut at Winged Foot for the 2006 U.S. Open after his father died, and he won the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines while playing on a shattered left knee.

Woods has won 71 official PGA Tour events including 14 majors.
