One month after entering a rehabilitation institution in Mississippi, pro golfer Tiger Woods is on his way home. The athlete was at the Hattiesburg clinic, which specializes in sex addiction therapies, after his scandalous affairs were brought to light.
An accident in his driveway in late November 2009 led the flood gates to open: what at first appeared to be an innocent accident turned out to stem from a severe altercation he had with his wife, former Swedish model Elin Nordegren, after she found out she was having an affair. The situation became progressively worse after many more women spoke up, alleging they had an affair with the golfer too. He was romantically linked to a total of 14 women.
Desperate to get his life back on track, Tiger entered the clinic. Now, a month later, RadarOnline.com reports the star was picked up by his wife, who has called off the divorce. RadarOnline also reports the pair were spotted flying out of Mississippi on Friday together, possibly off to spend quality time alone with the family (he will be seeing his two children for the first time in a month) and hopefully make his marriage to Elin work.
His marriage and family aren’t the only reasons he wants to get his life back on track: According to nydailynews.com, Tiger is the best-paid endorsement athlete in the world, earning a reported $64 million last year for endorsements. Since the scandal, he has been dropped by large companies like AT&T and Accenture.
