Tiger Woods and his wife Elin walk away from the 16th green at the 2006 Ryder Cup at the K Club golf course in Straffan, Ireland. Tiger Woods said Wednesday he let his family down with “transgressions” he regrets “with all of my heart,” and that he will deal with his personal life behind closed doors.

Tiger Woods is taking an indefinite leave from professional golf to work on saving his family, using the word "infidelity" for the first time in a statement posted on his Web Site.

Woods says he is aware of the disappointment that "my infidelity" has caused to his wife and children. He says he might not be able to repair the damage, but he wants to try.

He did not disclose Friday evening how long of a break he would take from the PGA Tour. He again asked for privacy, saying his family would need a "safe haven" to try to heal.
