Tiger Woods didn’t win the Masters on Sunday — and it was tough and often frustrating work.

So the philandering golf star, having just ended his self-imposed exile from world golf, is taking some time off!

When interviewed on CBS after the round if he had booked another tournament, Woods revealed: "No, I will take a little time off and reevaluate things."

As reported exclusively, Woods had always planned to go on a vacation after the Masters, his much-anticipated return to the sport after his string of affairs were revealed.

He had asked wife Elin to take family vacation with him, but she refused.

“Instead, she’s planning her own trip away,” a source told last week, “and Tiger is not invited on that trip.”

Elin was photographed flying out of Orlando alone on Sunday afternoon, as revealed exclusively.

Leaving her two children home with the nannies, Elin took off on a private jet from Orlando’s airport.


Closing with a 3-under-par 69, Woods finished tied for fourth at 11-under par at Augusta.

The event was won by Phil Mickelson.

Mickelson managed to hold off a slew of challengers, including Woods, whose putter let him and who at times, looked rusty.

At one stage, he was caught on video proclaiming: "Tiger Woods, you suck God dammit."

"I think people are making way too much of a big deal of this thing,” Woods said of his emotions, after his final round.

“I don't know how people should think I should be happy by that.

“These are not normally things I do.

“I am not going to be smiling, I am not going to be happy... I am not going to be walking around with a pep in my step."
