According to a letter obtained by the AP from PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem, Tiger Woods plans to return to sex addiction rehab following his public statement at 11 a.m. Friday morning. During the statement, Woods is expected to apologize for past transgression and speak about his future.
On Wednesday, Finchem said the following while addressing the media from the Accenture Match Play tournament:
"[M]y sense is that this is part of his schedule and what he’s dealing with and going through, but I don’t know that."
Later he added, "I don’t know what he’s going to do after he finishes his rehab, you know, I think all of that is TBD."
As for the statement Woods is making Friday, SB Nation’s Waggle Room has a detailed account of how the whole circus will be orchestrated. (It also won’t include any members of the Golf Writers Associaition, who decided to boycott the event. THAT’LL SHOW HIM! We assume this means they’ll also never write about Woods again after he returns to golf, right?)
And as for what Tiger will do after rehab, well, we’d guess return to golf. And soon. Here is one of many photos of him in full Nike gear hitting balls on Wednesday near his Orlando home:
According to TMZ, Woods will return for a tournament in late March. Time will tell.
