Tiger Woods checks into rehab, say US reports

Thursday January 14, 2010

Golfing ace Tiger Woods has reportedly checked himself into a clinic for the treatment of sex addiction, according to the US press.

The father-of-two is said to be on a strict six-week programme at a £5,000-a-week centre in South Africa.

The 34-year-old, who has been linked with a string of ladies, was reportedly seen landing in Cape Town on a private jet.

"Tiger hasn't been seen in public since before Christmas. It's thought he's gone somewhere quiet to get help," says a source.

"Celebrity spotters heard he flew into Cape Town between Christmas and New Year. He was apparently seen at the airport then went straight to Montrose Place for treatment."

On Wednesday the area surrounding the clinic was guarded by two security firms.
