Tiger Woods’ First Public Appearance Since Sex Scandal Scheduled For Friday

Scandal-scarred golfer Tiger Woods will emerge from his lair this week. This Friday, Feb. 19 at 11 AM ET, Woods will speak to the media for the first time since a sex scandal linking him to more than a dozen mistresses snatched headlines late last year.

Woods — who recently graduated Summa Cum Laude from sex rehab — hasn’t spoken publicly since crashing his SUV outside his suburban Orlando home Nov. 27.

According to a statement issued by his agent, Mark Steinberg, and his spokesman, Glenn Greenspan Wednesday afternoon: “Tiger Woods will be speaking to a small group of friends, colleagues and close associates at [11 a.m. ET Friday] at the TPC Sawgrass Clubhouse in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. Tiger plans to discuss his past and his future and he plans to apologize for his behavior.”

The news conference will occur during the middle of the Accenture Match Play Championship, one of the sponsors that severed ties with the PGA champ during his sex scandal.
