(CBS) While Tiger Woods remains holed up in seclusion more than a month after his Thanksgiving Day crash, never-before-seen images of the world's No. 1 golfer have surfaced in this month's Vanity Fair, reports CBS News correspondent Jeff Glor.

A bare-chested Woods graces the cover of the magazine — Woods holding a dumbbell in each hand.

The shots, taken by celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz back in January of 2006, give a rare glimpse into the life of the world's most guarded athlete.

"Tiger is an intensely competitive athlete - and quite serious about his sport. I wanted to reveal that in these photos," Leibovitz said.

The magazine hits news stands next week amid continued speculation about what will happen to Woods' marriage. His wife, Elin, and their children were seen outside their Florida home this past weekend after returning from a ski trip in France over the holidays.

She is reportedly communicating with her husband about a possible settlement.
