Los Angeles, February 4 -- Tiger Woods will step out of a sex addiction rehabilitation clinic by the end of this week, according to multiple tabloid reports.
The defamed golfer is supposedly nearing the end of his program at Gentle Path in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, where he is being treated for sex addiction.
Woods has not been seen in public since his infamous November car crash outside his Florida home. Last month, he reportedly entered the sex rehab after confessing he cheated on his wife following a scandal that linked him to as many as 19 mistresses.
Elin flies to bring Woods home
Now, the buzz is that the iconic golfer is all set to leave the sex rehab centre at the end of this week, and that his wife will pick him up.
According to Radar Online, Elin Nordegren has jetted off to Mississippi to meet her husband and bring him home.
Citing sources, the gossip Web site claims that Woods is nearing the completion of his program at the clinic situated at the $40,000-a-course Pine Grove center.
Woods plan to spend time together
Mr. and Mrs. Woods apparently plan to leave the facility and head out to spend a quality time together for a few days, a source told Radar.
"Tiger and Elin want to be alone out of public when he leaves the clinic. He should be out by the weekend. They are giving their marriage another try," the source said.
The World’s No. 1 golfer’s clean image was tarnished by a sex scandal when one woman after another stepped forward claiming to have had sex or a fling with the married golfer following his Nov. 27 accident.
Soon after, rumors began swirling that Elin Nordegren may leave Woods and move to Sweden with their children. Reports were also rampant that she is talking to her lawyers for the divorce.
Ever since Elin came to know about her golfer hubby’s infidelities, it has been commonly assumed that Elin would soon file for divorce.
But late last month, new reports emerged claiming that golf icon’s rumored divorce is not happening, and that the 30-year-old Swedish ex-swimsuit model Elin has planned to give her marriage a second chance.
Golfing world speculating on Woods’ return
Meanwhile, the Melbourne Herald Sun is reporting that Woods could return to professional golf at the Accenture Match Play Championship in Arizona from Feb. 15 to 21.
Citing no sources in its report, The Australian newspaper earlier reported: "Only a fortnight after allegedly checking into a sex addiction clinic in Mississippi, the world No. 1 is set to stun the world by returning to the Dove Mountain course where he made his comeback from knee surgery last year."
Neither the PGA Tour nor Tiger Woods' management team has confirmed the news.
