Golf champion Tiger Woods has announced on his website that he will return to golf on April 8 for the Augusta Masters. The world's number one golfer put his game on hold in the wake of a major sex scandal which erupted at the end of last year.

AFP - Tiger Woods will return to competitive golf next month to play in the Augusta Masters, he said in a statement on his website on Tuesday.

"The Masters is where I won my first major and I view this tournament with great respect. After a long and necessary time away from the game, I feel like I'm ready to start my season at Augusta," he said on his website.

The world's number one golfer put his game on hold in the wake of a major sex scandal which erupted at the end of last year.

"I have undergone almost two months of inpatient therapy and I am continuing my treatment," Woods added. "Although I'm returning to competition, I still have a lot of work to do in my personal life."

The Masters starts on April 8.
