Tiger Woods, facing a roomful of reporters Monday, issued another round of apologies and eagerly answered questions about his golf game — but offered little if any insight into his shattered personal life.

Woods said he was returning to golf “with a lot of support from his family,” but he said his wife Elin would not be on hand for this week’s Masters Tournament.

Woods has been absent from professional golf since November, when an accident outside his Florida home uncorked a sex scandal that drove the world’s greatest golfer into seclusion and a stint in rehab.

Woods spoke at length to reporters Monday at a 34-minute press conference at Augusta National Golf Club, the site of the Masters.

Wearing a white Tiger Woods hat and a white Nike shirt, he looked tired but collected as he answered a variety of questions from the golf press.

He apologized to fellow players on the PGA tour who have been “bombarded” by questions about Woods, his absence and the accusations of off-the-course infidelities.

“Hopefully, after today, the players can be left alone to focus on the Masters.”
