Tiger Woods will appear in public on Friday to issue a statement. There will be no question and answer session, according to Darren Rovell of CNBC.
An alert at PGATour.com indicates that the news conference will be held at the headquarters of the PGA Tour.
Woods’ agent, Mark Steinberg, issued the following statement:
Tiger Woods will be speaking to a small group of friends, colleagues and close associates at [11 a.m. ET Friday] at the TPC Sawgrass Clubhouse in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. Tiger plans to discuss his past and his future and he plans to apologize for his behavior.
Steinberg told Rovell that “Tiger will make a public statement to begin to make amends.”
Earlier, Charlie Gasparino of Fox Business Network weighed in:
“I have been speaking with sponsors who say they have been alerted by his reps that a public apology from Tiger Woods is imminent. It could occur as early as tomorrow sometime around 11am, and there’s going to be an announcement of the public apology that will be done at a press conference some time tonight. Like I said, we don’t have this yet from Tiger’s representatives. I logged in lots of calls over the last two hours, but I’m getting this from reliable sources among his–the sort of sponsors of his charities of some of the companies he represents who are saying they’re being alerted that something is coming down the pike, and it’s coming down the pike really soon.”
