Results of a survey released this morning by HCD Research on its MediaCurves.com Web site say that a large majority of golf viewers would not change their opinions of Tiger Woods if a report is true that he entered a facility for sex addiction rehabilitation.

          HCD says 301 Americans were surveyed Jan. 13-14 and asked if their perceptions on the disgraced golfer would change if he went for rehab. 73 percent said they would not. What was not clear, however, is whether the perceptions are good or bad.

          Nearly one-third of the people surveyed said they do not believe sex addiction is a real illness.

         After the revelation of his many affairs, there has been much speculation about the future of Woods' marriage to Elin Nordegren. She has been photographed with their children, without him. Woods is on a personal indefinite leave from the PGA Tour.
