Cape Town - Whether or not international golf legend Tiger Woods is really in South Africa, hiding in the Mother City, remains a mystery. Rumour has it however, that he's been hiding at Montrose Place in Bishops Court for some time, where he's receiving treatment for sex addiction.

The fences of the exclusive Montrose Place hide a luxury villa with a beautiful view and massive garden where people with addiction problems and obsessive behavioural patterns - often including international celebrities - receive private therapy and treatment.

Woods was last seen or photographed in public at the beginning of December, after the news broke about his extra-marital affairs and sex addiction.

Questions directed at Montrose Place and a request to speak to Johnny Graaff, owner and chief executive of the Montrose group, were summarily referred to the establishment's publicity company in London on Wednesday.

The only response after Die Burger contacted The Communication Group in London, was a brief e-mail sent later on Wednesday afternoon.

"Due to patient confidentiality we cannot disclose any information about or the identity of clients. This is Montrose policy," the PR company said on Graaff's behalf. They did, however, confirm that Montrose Place provides "extensive treatment programmes including for sex addiction".
