Tiger Woods vanishing act

He's one of the best known athletes in the country.

Tiger Woods seemed to turn up everywhere, from personal appearances to magazine ads to TV commercials. Now that appears to be changing.

In a statement released Friday, Woods admitted that he has cheated on his wife, and said, quote: "After much soul searching, I have decided to take an indefinite break from professional golf. I need to focus my attention on being a better husband, father and person."

Meanwhile Gillette - which has featured woods in ads since 2007 - says it's changing its marketing plans.

Gillette's statement reads in part: "we fully support him stepping back from his professional career and taking the time he needs to do what matters most. We wish him and his family the best. As Tiger takes a break from the public eye, we will support his desire for privacy by limiting his role in our marketing programs."

The developments follow widespread reports of woods' marital infidelity.

Connell Barrett, Editor at Large for Golf Magazine, spoke to CNN's Fredricka Whitfield about what this means for the sport.
