Pity the headline writer on TigerWoods.com couldn't interpret Tiger's statement for what is clearly was; an announcement of semi-retirement. 

In the statement Tiger admits he has a serious problem in his game, and it's not injury related, and says he just want's to be left alone to work on it. It refers to selective appearances, "I'd like to play the Honda Classic" but when was the last time Tiger came across as timid as that?

This latest injury is not related to my previous surgery. I am having daily physical therapy and I am feeling better every day.
Right now, I need a lot of work on my game, and to still spend time with the people that are important to me. My play, and scores, are not acceptable for tournament golf. Like I've said, I enter a tournament to compete at the highest level, and when I think I'm ready, I'll be back. Next week I will practice at Medalist and at home getting ready for the rest of the year. I am committed to getting back to the pinnacle of my game. I'd like to play The Honda Classic -- it's a tournament in my hometown and it's important to me -- but I won't be there unless my game is tournament-ready. That's not fair to anyone. I do, however, expect to be playing again very soon.
I want to thank the fans in Phoenix and San Diego. They were amazing. I greatly appreciate everyone's support.
Am beginning to feel very sad for the big guy.
