VANCOUVER -- Can therapy have truly cured Tiger Woods of his alleged serial sex drive?
Apparently, his wife thinks he can channel the drive back to the golf course after he finishes undergoing treatment at the Gentle Path clinic in Hattiesburg, Miss., which specializes in laying low errant libidos.
Reports say Elin Nordegren is considering a reconciliation with her golf-star husband. The Nordic model, who's alleged to have been involved in an altercation with Woods at their Florida mansion the night the golfer rammed his SUV into a tree, visited Woods at the sex-rehab clinic last week, reports RadarOnline.com.
Sources told the site she dropped her plans for divorce after spending some time chatting with Woods.
"She was happy when she came home," a source told the website. "Things went well."
The source told RadarOnline that Woods told his wife "he's serious about making it work and doing whatever he can."
Woods has suffered a spectacular fall from grace since the car crash at his home in November led to revelations he had repeatedly cheated on his wife.
Nearly 20 women have claimed to have had sexual relationships with Woods and he has taken a leave of absence from professional golf.
I'll welcome him back, says Perry
DOHA, Qatar -- Kenny Perry will give Tiger Woods a warm welcome when he returns from his self-imposed absence from golf.
"I am going to give him a hug and shake his hand," Perry said. Woods has not said when he will return to the PGA Tour.
Perry says he is willing to talk to Woods if he wants, adding that he is "sure he's had a lot of phone calls and a lot of people trying to get near him, but when he decides to come back, I am going to approach him."
At the Masters? Place your bets
LONDON -- British bookmaker William Hill has cut the odds on Tiger Woods playing at the Masters.
Shortly after Woods' famous SUV crash in November, William Hill was giving 4-6 odds that Woods would be back in time for the Masters in April. On Wednesday, the company cut the odds to 1-4.
"We've only taken money on the one side that he will be playing there, so that's why we shortened it right up," William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams said. "Everybody who's had a bet seems absolutely certain that he'll make it to Augusta."
Adams said they have taken 224 bets and 217 of them are that Woods will be playing at Augusta National. At odds of 4-1, people who bet $1 and win will get $4 plus the $1 stake back. At 6-4 odds, a $4 bet would get $10 in return.
