He's been out of the spotlight for nearly three months. On Friday, disgraced golfer Tiger Woods will come forward and make a public statement.

Tiger's agent, Mark Steinberg, announced today that the golf star will speak publicly for the first time since November 27 (when he crashed his SUV into a tree outside his home). Following that crash, more than a dozen women have come forward claiming to have had sexual encounters with Woods.

In a statement, Steinberg said, "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. 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 added, "This is not a press conference." Woods will speak in front of a gathering of a "small group of friends, colleagues and close associates" -- and press handpicked by the Golf Writers Association of America. It appears as though he will not take questions.

He will speak at 11 AM ET from the clubhouse of the TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida -- the PGA Tour headquarters.

I’m sorry, but his golfing abilities have absolutly nothing to do with the fact that he can’t keep it in his pant’s. I’am really sick of hearing about this it is for him and his wife to deal with. Why is he going to address the public he didn’t cheat on us.

Who cares? This guy is like a lot of people in this world—a cheater. This is not news and I, for one, would love it if the next time I hear about him it has to do with golf.

I believe it IS going to be televised. My husband mentioned it the other day.
I totally agree, this is stupid and not necessary. This is between him and his wife and his golfing abilities DON’T have anything to do with it!

I’m so proud of those who have some sense and realize it’s between him & his wife. Now if his golf game gets worse, I bet the media and his sponsors will wish he’d go back to WHATEVER he was doing before.
It’s none of our business. A few of his sponsors sales were dropping BEFORE the incident due to the economy, not him & Tiger’s incident created a convenient excuse to let him go because they can’t afford literally afford to continue paying him what he charges, but he’ll still get paid out his entire contract and won’t have to do anymore work.
I guarantee these same mouthy sponsors will be kicking themselves in the butt when he’s back at the top of his game and making somebody else rich!
Where’s the next train wreck so we can do what we always do, move on and talk about somebody else?
