The Golfing Pro will start his rehabilitation with his fans, himself and his fellow Golf Pro’s with a small get together, without questions  and under control of the Golfer and his handlers…..The press will be after him and the story ….you can be assured…..

This will part of his getting back on his feet after dealing with his life of infidelity with his wife, and whatever other demons he has had top live with in his life…..

The important things are…….. he’s trying to come back…he’s gonna play Golf …and his wife seems to be with him…. for now……

From a piece in the Washington Post……

“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,” Mark Steinberg said in an e-mail Wednesday. “He also let down his fans. He wants to begin the process of making amends and that’s what he’s going to discuss.”

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’ only comments since then have been made through his Web site.

Woods is to speak at 11 a.m. Friday from the clubhouse at the TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., home of the PGA Tour.

There was strict control over the appearance, typical of Woods’ career.

Steinberg described the gathering as a “small group of friends, colleagues and close associates,” who will listen to Woods apologize as he talks about the past and what he plans to do next. He said three wire services have been invited – The Associated Press, Reuters and Bloomberg – and he asked the Golf Writers Association of America to recommend pool reporters.

Only one camera will be in the room to provide live coverage via satellite. Steinberg said other writers with proper credentials could watch from a hotel ballroom more than a mile away.

“The first time out, he’s better controlling it,” fellow player Padraig Harrington said from the Match Play Championship in Arizona. “Over time, there will be questions. At the moment, the best thing is a more controlled environment and gradually ease his way back into it.

Tiger Woods, who plans on talking to the media on Friday morning, was out jogging on Wednesday dressed in Nike, who didn't drop him, and without his wedding ring.

  1. Hopefully, Tiger can keep the private spot in his pants and work on repairing his marriage with Elin for the sake of his 2 kids.
