Fourteen-time major champion Tiger Woods is set to make a "special announcement" Monday on the Golf Channel, but details on what he will be addressing are a mystery.

POLL

  • What will Tiger's big announcement be about?
    • Retirement
    • Remarriage
    • His 2011 plans
    • PEDs and busted Dr. Anthony Galea
    • Other

The 35-year-old announced last week that he was pulling out of this week's British Open as he continues to recover from knee and Achilles injuries, and the unknown nature of this latest address sparked speculation across the web that he would be taking an extended break from the game.

There was even some suggestion that he may retire, although Woods only said last week, "I think my best years are still ahead of me and I'm very confident and optimistic about the future."

Woods has been out of action since the middle of May after pulling out of the Players Championship with a mild medial collateral ligament sprain to his left knee and a mild strain to his left Achilles tendon, suffered while hitting a shot from under a tree at the Masters in April.

The three-time British Open champion said last week that he would be more careful and take his time in coming back this year so as to fully get over his injuries.

Woods has not won a major since the 2008 US Open and remains winless overall since late 2009, shortly before it emerged that he had multiple affairs, ultimately ending his marriage with Swedish model Elin Nordegren.

The announcement will take place Monday at 11 a.m. ET, when he will sit down with the Golf Channel's Kelly Tilghman.
