Tiger Woods takes break from golf

Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods has said he's going to take a break from golf to spend more time with his family.

The world number one hasn't been seen in public since a car crash near his home in Florida in November.

It's not clear when Tiger will return to the sport. He's said he wants to sort out some of his own family problems first.

On his website Woods said: "I need to focus my attention on being a better husband, father, and person."

His sponsors Nike have said they'll continue to stand by the star.
