Tiger Woods is planning to return to the PGA tour in the Spring, RadarOnline.com has learned.
By that time he will have completed rehab for sexual addiction and hopes to have his life back on track, a source close to the situation told RadarOnline.com exclusively.
As RadarOnline.com reported January 15, Tiger is at Pine Grove Behavioral Health and Addiction Services in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.
He is in a six-week program at the clinic, which is directed by Dr. Patrick Carnes, who has pioneered treatment for sexually compulsive behavior.
“Tiger is totally devastated,” the source told RadarOnline.com. “He wants to show everyone that he intends to change.”
Still, he’s already planning his comeback and is aiming to be back on the PGA tour by Spring.
The Masters begins April 5 but it is not yet known if Tiger will attempt to be ready for that high-profile tournament, which he has won four times.
Tiger is not publicly revealing his plan to return to golf this Spring but the source told RadarOnline.com that the golfing great believes going through rehab will help him convince everyone – including corporate sponsors – that he has changed.
News organizations scoured Hattiesburg the past few days looking for Tiger Sightings but his rehab is a closed facility. Two local media outlets also reported that Tiger was receiving treatment in town.
Tiger’s wife Elin has not been wearing her wedding ring but also has not filed for divorce.
He has been romantically linked to at least 14 women during his marriage. His most recent affair was with Rachel Uchitel and was uncovered by the National Enquirer. Shortly after that story was reported Tiger drove into a fire hydrant and tree in the early morning hours after Thanksgiving and has not been seen since in public.
