Disgraced pro golfer Tiger Woods will make a public statement on Friday at 11 a.m. to apologize for his past behavior and announce his future plans. It will be the first time he has spoken publicly since a series of embarassing incidents beginning in November 2009.
Back in November, Tiger crashed his vehicle into a tree outside his home, and was later revealed to have been fooling around with more than a dozen other women while married to his beautiful wife, Elin Nordegren.
Tiger is expected to speak to a group of associates, and the media will be allowed to listen in. Of course, per Tiger’s PR department, he will not be taking any questions. Yeah, that’s a shocker.
Initial reports said Tiger was “seriously injured” in the November crash, but rumors later popped up that Tiger was on Ambien, a sleep medication, when he crashed and was fleeing his house after Elin discovered his affairs. According to former Bruins coach Pat Burns, Elin swung and slammed Tiger’s mouth with a golf club, and shattered his rear windshield while chasing after his car. None of those events have ever been verified, however.
Woods recently checked out of a sex rehab facility and for now, is back with his wife Elin and two children. Of course, more rumors about Tiger’s alleged affairs continue to pop up.
Reports over the last few days alleged that one of Tiger’s lovers, pornstar Joslyn James, was impregnated twice by the golfer. One of the babies was lost via miscarriage, and the other was aborted. In both instances, James said Tiger was not informed of the pregnancies. SoB’s Brian Fudge ranked the Tiger mistresses, and James placed a close No. 2 behind the one-that-started-it-all, Rachel Uchitel.
Tiger was also recently named the AP’s Athlete of the 2000s, or was that the playa of the year?
What do you expect to hear from Tiger this Friday? Anything?
