Augusta (U.S.), Mar 31(ANI): Ace American golfer Tiger Woods' big press conference on Monday during the Augusta National would be governed by the club officials, citing Masters' policies on media coverage.

According to reports, the press conference will be held in a small interview room, and will not be relocated to the adjacent auditorium, where all reporters have assigned seats.

It is also believed that not everybody covering the event will be granted entry to the press conference, and tournament officials will determine who gets to ask questions, and who listens outside the room.Masters officials expect those desiring access to exceed capacity in the interview room," The New York Daily News quoted the Augusta National Golf Club, as saying in a statement.

"They are asking credentialed outlets who wish to have a representative considered by the Media Committee to submit the name of one credentialed reporter via e-mail," the statement added.

The procedure certainly works in Woods' favour, as it will limit his inquisitors when he returns from his four-month break from the game.

Woods had taken time off from the game to rebuild his marriage after a late-night car crash outside his home in Florida in November last year sparked revelations of his infidelities. (ANI)
