Woods to fi­nally ad­dress me­dia Fri­day for first time since in­fi­delity rev­e­la­tions

Cape Breton Post - - INTERNATIONAL -

MARANA, Ariz. (AP) — Tiger Woods will end nearly three months of si­lence Fri­day when he speaks to the me­dia for the first time about his mid­dle-ofthe-night ac­ci­dent that sparked shock­ing rev­e­la­tions about his in­fi­delity.

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

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

How­ever, Woods will not take any ques­tions, Stein­berg added. “ This is not a press con­fer­ence,” he said. Woods will speak to a “small group of friends, col­leagues and close as­so­ci­ates” about his past and what he plans next, along with apol­o­giz­ing for his be­hav­iour.

He said three wire ser­vices would be in in­vited, and he was ask­ing the Golf Writ­ers As­so­ci­a­tion of Amer­ica to pick a small group of re­porters to serve as a pool. Stein­berg said there would be one pool cam­era, but it would be avail­able live via satel­lite.

The news con­fer­ence will be held dur­ing the Ac­cen­ture Match Play Cham­pi­onship in Ari­zona, which is sure to steal at­ten­tion away from the first big event of the year. Ac­cen­ture was the first spon­sor to drop Woods when he be­came em­broiled in a sex scan­dal. “It was a mat­ter of tim­ing,” Stein­berg said. When asked if the news con­fer­ence could have waited un­til af­ter Ac­cen­ture’s tour­na­ment, he replied, “No.”
