Tiger Woods set to break silence Friday at PGA Tour headquarters

with 2 comments

For those of us who’ve never had the distinct pleasure felt the pain of sitting through a Tiger Woods press conference before, allow us to let you in on a little secret about those so-called “pressers” where Mr. Woods is involved: They’re boring. No, scratch that. They’re REALLY boring.

Cookie-cutter answers for the press? Check. Ah-shucks comments about his most recent ‘Ranger Rick’ round? Check. Yep, Tiger Woods isn’t the best guy to interview when it comes to filing a story. He’d prefer to let his game do the talking, which it usually does.

But On Friday morning at 11 a.m., the world’s number on golfer will, for a couple of minutes, be part of the most interesting press conference we’ve ever seen. Woods’ agent, Mark Steinberg, confirmed his client will be giving a formal statement to a select media group at PGA Tour headquarters in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.

“This is all about the next step,” Mark Steinberg, his agent, told The Associated Press. “He’s looking forward to it.”

(Read: I’m going to apologize, maybe shed a few tears and prepare the rest of the golfing world for my comeback to the game.)

The most logical step after the press conference would be a Woods sighting at the Tavistock Cup (the inter-club event between Isleworth and Lake Nona), followed by Bay Hill. At least that’s the way I see it playing out.

Regardless, Friday marks the start of Tiger Woods coming back to the game. Get ready.

  1. I certainly cannot speak regarding anybody else, nevertheless I believe the press that this story is gaining is silly. Tiger cheated on his wife, not the game of golf. The only people he should have to please is going to be his family in addition to sponsors. It is very clear why he still ought to apologize and continue to make amends with Elin. His sponsors have invested a bundle advertising him. Aside from that, this is a private household concern and the guy should be permitted to take care of this behind closed doors. Everyone quite frankly doesn’t have the right to learn every minimal detail regarding everybody’s daily life, regardless of their public figure status.

  2. I obviously cannot speak out for everybody else, nonetheless I think all the press this saga is receiving is silly. Tiger cheated on his spouse, not golf. The only ones the guy should have to appease is without a doubt his relatives and sponsors. Its crystal clear why he still will need to say i’m sorry and then try to make amends with Elin. His sponsors have spent a bundle marketing him. Apart from that, it is a non-public family problem and they ought to be permitted to take care of this behind closed doors. People quite frankly doesn’t have the right to discover every little detail with regards to everyones everyday living, no matter what their public figure status.
