Tiger Woods is shifting his focus from winning majors to saving his marriage. Two weeks after Woods crashed his car into a tree outside his house, setting in motion a swift fall that featured reports of extramarital infidelities, golf's biggest star made a stunning announcement. He announced he is temporarily walking away from the game that made him the first $1 billion athlete. "After much soul searching, I have decided to take an indefinite break from professional golf," Woods said Friday evening on his Web site. "I need to focus my attention on being a better husband, father, and person." It will be the second straight year that the No. 1 player will spends a long period sidelined. A year ago, he missed eight months while recovering from reconstructive surgery on his left knee. This time, Woods is trying to repair a broken family, knowing this will be a far more difficult comeback.
