Tiger Woods press conference scheduled, Friday morning


PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- It's not a comeback yet and it won't last long, but the public is eager to hear what Tiger Woods has to say today.

After being out of sight for almost three months, golf's biggest star is to make his first public appearance since he crashed his SUV on Nov. 27, setting off a shocking and sordid sex scandal.

Woods will speak to a small group of "friends, colleagues and close associates" at Florida's TPC Sawgrass, home of the PGA Tour. Just one video camera will broadcast the event, there will be no questions and when he's done, he's gone.

A letter from the PGA Tour commissioner obtained by The Associated Press says Woods will return to therapy after he speaks out.

Some golf pros think the appearance detracts from this week's Match Play Championship, sponsored by Accenture, the first company to drop Woods as a pitchman.
