Tiger is finally breaking his silence this Friday. What will he say? It is sure to be little more than an apology and perhaps a date for his return to the PGA Tour. Given his actions and the months of silence there is not a lot that he can say that will come as a surprise to anybody. The press conference is being completely controlled by the Tiger team of media gurus and agents. There is a little chance he will take any difficult questions and given his past he will most likely say that he will never speak of the situation with media again.
The timing of the press conference is also a bit sinister. It will occur during this week’s Accenture Match Play Championship. Accenture was one of the first sponsors to drop Tiger Woods after his accident, and affairs, in November. The only good that come out of this is closure and a return to the Tour for Tiger. While he made idiotic mistakes, the game truly is not the same without him.
