Tiger Woods announced on his website today that he will offer an apology to the World on Friday for his transgressions:

Tiger Woods will be speaking to a small group of friends, colleagues and close associates at 11:00 a.m. EST on Friday at the TPC Sawgrass Clubhouse in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. Tiger plans to discuss his past and his future, and he plans to apologize for his behavior.

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.

His remarks will be open to a press pool for live coverage. It is NOT a news conference

I love that he ends his statement with this is not a news conference, because this is such a News Conference! 

I’m going to pray right now that this apology will be the Climax to Tiger’s Adventures (excuse the pun).  I’m so tired of hearing about Tiger and his neverending trail of Shameless Mistresses that now I feel that his wife could foresee what was coming and that was why she felt compelled to hit him in the head with that golf club.
