Agent: Tiger to make 'amends'
Advertiser News Services
Tiger Woods will speak publicly tomorrow for the first time since his bizarre, Thanksgiving night car accident, beginning what his agent called "the process of making amends" for the sex scandal that sent him into hiding for three months.
"While Tiger feels that what happened is fundamentally a matter between he and his wife, he also recognizes that he has hurt and let down a lot of other people who were close to him," agent Mark Steinberg said in an e-mail yesterday.
"He also let down his fans. He wants to begin the process of making amends and that's what he's going to discuss," Steinberg said.
However, Steinberg said Woods will not take any questions from a small group of media. "This is not a press conference," he said.
It will be Woods' first public appearance since Nov. 27, when he crashed his SUV into a tree outside his Florida home.
Woods is to speak at 6 a.m. (HST) from the clubhouse at the TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., home of the PGA Tour.
