UNDATED - Is Tiger Woods willing to give up golf to save his marriage?

That's what Britain's The Sun newspaper is reporting on its Web site. The newspaper says that golf's No. 1 player has told his wife he "will do anything" to salvage their relationship following the disclosure of his alleged multiple affairs.

And that "anything" might be the ultimate sacrifice for Woods: giving up the game that made him an worldwide superstar and one of the globe's richest athletes.

The Sun reported Woods' wife, Elin Nordegren, has drawn up a list of requirements for Woods to meet if he wants to remain married. "Last night it was understood Elin had refused to let Woods tour until he regained her trust - or until daughter Sam, 2, and 10-month-old son Charlie were old enough to tag along with them," The Sun reported.

The newspaper also quoted what it said was a friend of Nordegren. "They have agreed to try and rebuild their marriage, but Elin will be the one calling the shots," the friend is quoted as saying. "It will be a long time before he's travelling the globe playing golf unless Elin's by his side. Tiger will have to work long and hard to get her to trust him again. Quitting golf shows he is willing to sacrifice something he loves so much to protect his family."

Elsewhere across the Web …

RadarOnline.com reports that Woods' lawyers won a court victory in London to prohibit British media outlets from publishing or displaying any nude photos or nude videos of Woods.

RadarOnline reported, "His legal team promptly sent a letter to multiple UK papers and blogs reminding them that the order — which was given on Thursday afternoon — prevents 'the publication of private and confidential information contained in the Order and confidential schedule relating to Mr. Woods. ' "

But the Web site said Woods' people are not admitting that any such photos or videos exist.

"This Order is not to be taken as an admission that any such photographs exist," Radar quoted from the alleged letter. "And in the event that these photographs do exist, and it is not admitted, any such images may have been fabricated, altered, manipulated and or changed to create the false appearance and impression that they are nude photographs of our client."

Several of Woods' alleged mistresses have claimed that they have nude photos of Woods.

TMZ.com reports that one of Woods' alleged "other women," porn actress Holly Sampson, says she's "not a homewrecker" because she had sex with the golfer before he was married.

Sampson told TMZ that she had only one encounter with Woods, and it was at his 2004 bachelor party. TMZ quoted Sampson as saying, "Although I enjoyed our time together, I never was and never will be one of Tiger's mistresses.

"I resent being put in the same category as the other women," she said.
