World awaits Tiger Woods' statement
Ponte Vedra Beach, Feb 19: Even as the world awaits scandal-tainted golfer Tiger Woods' first public statement, a new report of the sportsman's plans to return to therapy has hit the headlines.

In a letter to PGA Tour policy board and other officials, PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem has reportedly revealed that Woods will be returning to therapy after his public appearance on Friday, Feb 19.

Woods checked himself into a rehab centre, seeking treatemnt for sex addiction, weeks after his career and marriage came crashing down due to the multiple extramarital affairs.

According to an international news agency, Finchem's letter also explains why the golfer 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, the news agency report said.

Woods will be speaking from TPC Sawgrass clubhouse, home of the PGA Tour at 1600 GMT (11:00 am EST) as the world watches.

This is the first time Tiger Woods will be addressing the public, after his sexcapes surfaced in Dec 2009.

The golfer is expected to apologise for his behaviour.

"While Tiger feels that what happened is fundamentally a matter between him and his wife, he also recognizes that he has hurt and let down a lot of other people who were close to him. He also let down his fans. He wants to begin the process of making amends, and that's what he's going to discuss," Tiger Woods official website said.
