Tiger Woods has been reunited with his children for the first time in more than a month, it has been reported.
The shamed golfer is said to have been picked up from an addiction clinic by his wife Elin Nordegren in time for their son Charlie's first birthday. Miss Nordegren, who also has a two-year-old daughter by Woods called Sam, is believed to have given him six months to save their marriage.
His squeaky-clean image was destroyed by claims of affairs with a string of women, including cocktail waitresses and party hostesses.
The 33-year-old admitted to infidelity and issued an extraordinary public apology for his 'transgressions', confessing 'I have let my family down'.
Although he denies he is a sex addict, Woods has been receiving treatment at the Pine Grove Behavioural Health and Addiction Services clinic in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, so that he can 'get his life back on track'. His 30-year-old Swedish wife is believed to have participated in his therapy.
Despite earlier reports that the couple intended to divorce, they are now said to be spending time alone to work on their marriage and plan to return to their home in Orlando, Florida. When news of the affairs broke in December, Woods said he was taking an 'indefinite break' from professional golf. He was dropped by several sponsors.
But reports that he had completed his six-week addiction course led to immediate speculation that he could return to the golf circuit within weeks. There were suggestions that he could play in the Accenture Match Play Championship in Arizona in a fortnight. He would have to register by Friday for the tournament which is open to the top 64 players in the world.
However, it is more widely believed that he will make his return in the Arnold Palmer Invitation in Florida, an event he has won six times, and which is played at the end of March, shortly before the Masters, the first major of the year.
