Woods again acknowledges fall from grace

3:19 pm on 6 April 2010

World golf No 1 Tiger Woods says he takes full responsibility for the marital infidelities which led to his fall from grace and admits he's lied to and deceived a lot of people.

Speaking on Monday before his comeback to competition at the US Masters, Woods said his wife Elin would not be attending the tournament.

He also pledged to give the game more respect saying he would tone down his bad language and emotional outbursts on the course.

Woods has not played professional golf since winning the Australian Masters in November, but says he was appreciative of the reception he received from the spectators and fellow players during his first practice round.
