Tiger Woods is to return to therapy after he speaks publicly for the first time about his infidelity, according to a letter from PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem.
Finchem’s letter to the PGA Tour policy board and other officials explained why Woods chose 8 a.m. today to make his first public comments, which are to be televised live by the major networks. His statement comes during the Match Play Championship, sponsored by Accenture, the first company to drop Woods as a pitchman.
“As we understand it, Tiger’s therapy called for a week’s break at this time during which he has spent a few days with his children and then will make his statement before returning,” Finchem said in a letter Thursday. “Accordingly, there was very little flexibility in the date for the announcement.”
