Tiger Woods To Break Silence At PGA

2/17/2010 4:39 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

UPDATE: The following message was just posted on Tiger Woods' official website: "While Tiger feels that what happened is fundamentally a matter between him 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."

The PGA Tour's website just posted that Tiger Woods will speak publicly at the PGA Tour Headquarters on Friday at 11:00 AM ET.

Tiger Woods

The PGA typically announces on Fridays who will play in the following week's tournament.

According to Tiger's agent, Mark Steinberg, Tiger plans to apologize for his behavior and discuss his plans for the future. Woods will be speaking with a small group of his friends and colleagues during the news conference.

Steinberg said no one will be able to ask questions during the news conference. There is a report out that Tiger will read a prepared statement.

And this is interesting ... the news conference will take place during the Accenture Match Play Championship -- one of the sponsors that dropped him in the wake of the sex scandal.

Steinberg said, "This is all about the next step. He's looking forward to it."

Just once I'd like to see one of these guys, or gals, pull a Sinatra and say "I know I'm in the public eye but, screw you, I'm gonna live my life." You have to respect that, no matter what!

His agent Steinberg helped him to cover up his cheating. So he's still here ? Well I guess nothing will really change..........

30. Show me a man that says he does not cheat and I will show you a bad liar. All men cheat it depends on whether or not they are smart enough not to get caught.

So let me guess you can account for every man on the planet. Speak for yourself you in no way have that type of knowledge and cannot speak for evey man on earth.

We all make mistakes. For all those so perfect people who sit behind computers are fire off stupid remarks. Kobe did the same thing and what did he do go out and DO win a championship. That shut up alot of haters. Do hate the man cause he is rich, successful, and popular. Most people dont know the exposure of being popular and the amount of temptation.

Hey, you know what? Anyone who says leave him alone is a fool. He gets paid millions and we get to look at what he's all about. If he has no integrity, no class, can't tell the truth we get to turn our backs. Consider mine turned and walking away from this psycho.

I haven't missed the cheatah at all. I think the tournaments this year have been great WITHOUT him because other players are getting a chance to shine. When TW comes back it will ALL be about him - his playing ON the greens and OFF. I find media attention focused on 1 player to be boring, and, I don't think TW deserves the media treating him like a god after what he did to the reputation of golf.

He sure didn't take very long to become a better human being, husband & father!!!!! I really hope he & Elin work things out. I really hope he has learned his lesson & values his family!! My heart aches for Elin & the kids and all that he has done to them. So very very very sad. I hope he spends the rest of his life trying to make things right w/ his wife & kids!!! So sad! And all this for those trashy whores who can't keep their mouth shut & have no morals. All those whores care about is fame & wealth. SAD!

I see many don't understand behavioral addictions. Addictions don't have to involve a substance. Gambling is another behavioral addiction. People destitute their lives and the lives of the people they love gambling.

I am no fan of golf (yawn) OR Tiger Woods and I used to be married to someone who behaved just like him, so I know the devastation that behavior like this causes.... but at least he has taken steps to get healthy, and is willing to apologize.

Give the guy a chance. It's between him and his wife now.

ps I divorced mine. He would not take responsibility or seek help.

told ya so - TEAM LENO    

The timing of this "public sit down' on his terms, is just way too orchestrated and forced. It is "coincidentally" (*wink - wink*) timed with his return to golf. He hasn't even given his speech yet and it already looks like he is still full of crap.
This happened at Thanksgiving, it is now past Valentines...does he really think we believe he is "cured"...dude really, a "tiger" doesn't change his stripes.

Good Luck Elin, you should leave him instead of showing your kids (especially your daughter) that it is ok to stay with someone who humiliates you and makes you look foolish and desperate).
