Tiger Woods is about to make his first appearance and step towards reentering public life. From Woods’ web site the following statement was released.
“Tiger Woods will be speaking to a small group of friends, colleagues and close associates at 11:00 a.m. EST on Friday at the TPC Sawgrass Clubhouse in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. Tiger plans to discuss his past and his future, and he plans to apologize for his behavior.
“While Tiger feels that what happened is fundamentally a matter between him and his wife, he also recognizes that he has hurt and let down a lot of other people who were close to him. He also let down his fans. He wants to begin the process of making amends, and that's what he's going to discuss. His remarks will be open to a press pool for live coverage. It is NOT a news conference.”
PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem will be in attendance when Woods makes his statement but offered some curious remarks. “I don't really have a reaction,” he said from Tucson, site of the WGC Match Play event. “I'm pleased that he's going to make some comments.” He acknowledged that he hasn’t had any personal contact with Woods since his November accident. “We were asked to make the facility available and to help with the logistics. That's what we're doing. And my sense is that this is part of his schedule and what he's dealing with and going through, but I don't know that.” Finchem added, “I don't know what his plans are in terms of what he's going to say. I don't know what he's going to do after he finishes his rehab.”
