Tiger Woods will break his silence on Friday for the first time over his sex scandals that destroyed his marriage life in late November last year. The star golfer's spokesman Mark Steinberg announced that Woods will address the media at the Sawgrass Clubhouse, Ponte Vedra, Florida at 1600 GMT on 19th February. Steinberg told that Woods will discuss his past and future before media and he plans to apologize for his unsocial behaviour. Woods has been on an indefinite break and could be hardly traced after a string of his sex scandals started coming into light since he suffered a car accident outside his Florida home on 27th November. Media reported many girls claiming extramarital affair with Star golfer since then. The 34 year old golfer is married to Swedish model Elin Nordgren and the couple is having two kids. The Spokesman informed that Woods will be speaking to a small group of pals, colleagues and close associates which will be reported by a pool of reporters. Tiger feels that though it is a personal matter between him and his wife, he has hurt feelings of many of his fans and people close to him. Looking into future, he wants to discuss the changes he is going to bring in himself with everyone. The spokesman also cleared that as it is not a press conference, he will not answer to questions of reporters. Three news wire services will be present to report the discussion, as well as a small group of reporters chosen by the Golf Writers Association of America, with one camera will attend it to supply a live satellite feed. Tim Finchem, commissioner of the PGA Tour whose headquarters will host Woods on Friday said “I want Tiger back playing as soon as he has dealt with what he left the game to deal with. I don't want him back before that. I'm just going to wait and see what he says." Woods' much awaited public appearance will take place in the midst of WGC Match Play Championship in Arizona, which started on Wednesday. Tournament sponsors Accenture ended their commercial ties with Woods as his sex scandals covered headlines of newspapers. Embarrassed by sex charges, on 11 December, Woods announced to take indefinite break from golf. Woods has captured 14 major titles and needs five more to break the record of 18 held by compatriot Jack Nicklaus.
