Tiger Woods Lands In Arizona; Will Return Home In A Week

After months of silence, Tiger Woods apologized on Friday to America, his wife and then took off on a private jet and disappeared again.

But has learned exclusively that Tiger’s jet landed in Arizona.

Tiger told America during his nationally televised mea culpa that he was returning to rehab but offered no specifics. And was first to report that Tiger, Elin and their children all flew out of Orlando, Florida together on Saturday evening.

Now has exclusively discovered that Tiger did not go back to Gentle Path in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, where he was in rehab.

Instead, Tiger and family landed in Scottsdale, Arizona and is reporting exclusively that Tiger is expected to be gone for only one week. It's not known exactly why Tiger is in Arizona or how long he'll be in the Grand Canyon State.

The family was surrounded by intense security when they left Orlando, and this is the most time Tiger, Elin and the children have spent together since Tiger’s secret cheating life was exposed.

“Elin may not stay the entire week with him,” a source close to the situation told “She taking the marriage one day at a time.” broke the news that Elin would not be by his side for his televised speech, and while she stayed at home, there has been progress made in the marriage.

Elin agreed to take the children and fly out of Orlando with Tiger and that is consistent with a general thawing of the coldness between husband and wife.

As was first to report, Tiger and Elin had dinner two nights in a row before Tiger’s televised speech, in which he went out of his way to praise Elin and tell America to leave her alone.

“Elin called off her divorce lawyer a while ago,” the source said, “but she told Tiger that doesn’t mean that she’s staying with him.” And Elin is still not wearing her wedding ring.

“Tiger wants time with his family and he wants Elin to be part of his recovery,” the source told “He knows it’s a long road to getting her to trust him at all again but he’s taking it one step at a time.”
