"This kind of absurd, bizarre thing that Tiger Woods is reduced to a children's story -- Where's Waldo?" USA Today sports columnist Christine Brennan told ABC News last month. "You're talking about one of the most recognizable people on the planet and no one can find him."
In his December statement, Woods admitted to "infidelities" and said he needed to stop playing golf in order "to focus my attention on being a better husband, father, and person."
The scandal broke following a mysterious car accident the golfer had outside his Orlando home on Nov. 27.
Following the accident, in which his wife Elin Nordegren reportedly attacked his car with a golf club, a number of women came forward or were reported to have had affairs with Woods.
Nordegren and Woods married in 2004. Together they have a daughter Sam, 2, and a son Charlie, 1.
