It may not be a permanent retirement, but you won’t see Tiger Woods on the golf course anytime soon.  The billionaire golfer has announced that he will take an “indefinite leave” from professional golf, saying in a statement that he is “deeply aware of the disappointment and hurt that my infidelity has caused to so many people, most of all my wife and children.”  He goes on to say that he needs “to focus my attention on being a better husband, father, and person.”  No word on whether this means he’ll be spending more time this winter in Jackson Hole, where he recently purchased a ski home.
