Tidbits concerning what to expect in a few minutes from the statement from Tiger Woods:
-Ten minute statement with no follow-up answers from limited and chosen meeting (the Golf Writers Association voted to not have reps attend—kudos).
-Wife Elin not expected to appear?mom is expected to be among group of family, friends and business associate
-The session is being carried by outlets in Europe, Australia and Asia.
-There are some 300 media members at the media center in Ponte Vedra, FLA.
-Tiger and his handlers are upset over criticism of the timing of the announcement. They—along with the PGA Tour—say the timing is not a matter of retribution toward the first sponsor to break ties (Accenture, which is hosting the prestigious Accenture Match Play Tournament.) Rather the timing is driven by the sex addiction therapy treatment and its procedures.He has been given seven days away from the facility to take care of this PR part of the process.
-Surprisingly, PGA CEO Tim Finchem is the one to reveal Tiger is headed back for more therapy after the press meeting.
