Three months after Tiger Woods crashed his SUV into a tree before his Florida mansion, the Associated Press announced that the golfing superstar will hold a controlled press conference to explain his adulterous actions and apologize to the fans (February 17).
In the conference, Woods will not answer questions and will presumably announce his return to professional golf.
The first photograph of Woods since the incident (above) was released on Wednesday to the media.
Woods' adulterous affairs were highlighted by a National Enquirer article in late November and spiraled a whirlwind media investigation into how, why and when he could have had such affairs. It is estimated that Woods cheated on wife of 5 years, Elin Nordegren, with 14 women and that he has offered her gratuitous amounts of gifts and cash to remain his wife. The press suggested that Woods' crash was a result of Nordegren's response to the article, which was in print 2 days prior.
In January, Woods entered a sex rehab program in Mississippi, hoping to reform for his family and well-being. He and Nordegren have 2 children together: Sam Alexis (2) and Charlie Axel (1).
In the wake of the affairs, Woods lost sponsorship with the likes of Gatorade, AT&T and Accenture.
The Twitter-inspired "#tigershouldsay" conference will be held on Friday, February 19, in St. Augustine, Florida.
