Tiger Woods Returning to Rehab After Apology
After his buzzed-about public apology Friday morning, Tiger Woods is set to return to sex rehab.
In a letter to the Associated Press, PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem says: "As we understand it, Tiger's therapy called for a week's break at this time during which he has spent a few days with his children and then will make his statement before returning. Accordingly, there was very little flexibility in the date for the announcement."
Woods, 34, is to speak at 11 a.m. EST from the clubhouse at TPC Sawgrass, home of the PGA Tour, in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. It will be the first time since his sex scandal broke in November that he has publicly apologized for cheating on his wife Elin with several women. Still no word whether Elin will appear.
On Thursday, Finchem confirmed for the first time that Woods went to rehab. Finchem told reporters that the golfer left last week and "spent some time with his family."
He did not verify that Woods was treated for sex addiction at the Pine Grove Behavorial Health and Addiction Services clinic in southern Mississippi.
Finchem also declined to reveal whether Woods would return to golf anytime soon, though it has been rumored that he is playing in the Tavistock Cup March 22-23 in Orlando, Fla.
