PGA Commish: Tiger Is Returning To Therapy

KSCB News - February 19, 2010 12:00 am

Tiger Woods is to return to therapy after he speaks publicly for the first time about his

infidelity, according to a letter from PGA Tour commissioner Tim

Finchem that was obtained by The Associated Press.

Finchem’s letter to the PGA Tour policy board and other

officials explained why Woods chose Friday to make his first public

comments, which are to be televised live by all the major networks.

Woods’ statement comes during the Match Play Championship,

sponsored by Accenture, the first company to drop Woods as a

pitchman.

“As we understand it, Tiger’s therapy called for a week’s break

at this time during which he has spent a few days with his children

and then will make his statement before returning,” Finchem said

in a letter Thursday. “Accordingly, there was very little

flexibility in the date for the announcement.”

Woods is to speak at 10 a.m. from the clubhouse at TPC

Sawgrass, home of the PGA Tour.

The letter shed no light on whether Woods plans to return to the

tour anytime soon.
