Tiger Woods set to apologise, address future on Friday

Latest update : 2010-02-17

Superstar US golfer Tiger Woods, on leave from the game since admitting marital infidelity in December, will make a public statement on Friday to discuss his playing future and to "apologize for his behavior", his manager has said.

REUTERS - Tiger Woods, the superstar golfer who took an indefinite break from the game in December after admitting marital infidelity, will make a public statement on Friday to discuss his playing future.

The world number one has been in hiding since the tawdry revelations about his personal life erupted after a minor car accident outside his Florida home in November. Woods plans to address a small gathering of reporters in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, at 11 a.m. EST (1600 GMT), his manager said.

“Tiger plans to discuss his past and his future and he plans to apologize for his behavior,” Mark Steinberg said in an e-mail to Reuters.

“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.”
