As you probably know, Tiger Woods plans to hold a press conference on Friday in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., site of the PGA Tour headquarters. Well, it’s sort of a press conference — he won’t be taking any questions from reporters, and it will only last five minutes. According to the statement issued by his agent, the philandering golfer plans to talk about his past and future, and apologize. He will "be speaking to a small group of friends, colleagues and close associates," the statement noted.
A spokesperson for the PGA Tour told The Wall Street Journal that someone approached the Tour — perhaps Tiger’s PR rep, Glenn Greenspan — asking for a venue for the press conference. Maybe he wants to win over America’s heart again (along with a few lost sponsors). More likely, it’s a dramatic way to announce his return to golf in time for the Masters Tournament in April. The big question is will his wife, Elin, be by his side?
