Tiger Woods will break nearly three months of silence by making a statement on Friday, his agent says.
Woods will speak at 11 a.m. from the clubhouse at the TPC Sawgrass, headquarters of the PGA Tour in Florida.
"This is all about the next step," Mark Steinberg, his agent, told The Associated Press.
"He's looking forward to it."
Steinberg said he would speak to a "small group of friends, colleagues and close associates" about his past and what he plans next, along with apologizing for his behavior.
Steinberg said three wire services would be in invited, and he was asking the Golf Writers Association of America to pick a small group of reporters to serve as a pool. Steinberg said there would be one pool camera, but it would be available live via satellite.
The news conference will occur during the middle of the Accenture Match Play Championship, one of the sponsors that dropped him during his sex scandal.
"It was a matter of timing," Steinberg said.
When asked if the news conference could have waited until after Accenture's tournament, he replied, "No."
Woods has not said anything publicly since revelations about his infidelity became known in late November
