Tiger Woods apologizes: Do you think he’s really changed?

February 19, 2010

Tiger Woods will go before the cameras Friday for the first time since his sex scandal erupted and apologize for cheating on his wife with a bevy of babes. But he’ll be flying solo.

PGA Tour pal Brad Faxon told a Boston radio station that Woods’ long-suffering spouse, Elin Nordegren, won’t be with him. Instead, retired NBA superstar Michael Jordan will be there to provide Woods some morale support.

“I know Michael Jordan’s going to be there,” Faxon told WEEI-AM’s Dennis & Callahan show. “I know Elin is not going to be there … I think Tiger really wants some friends there. That’s why this thing is really a mystery to me.” It will be the first time he’s faced the public since his lurid – and disastrous – sex scandal broke on Thanksgiving.

CBS has brought in their big gun Katie Couric to anchor the pivotal moment in a sleazy saga that has transfixed the country for months. ABC is siccing their “Good Morning America” anchors Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos on the story.

The 950-member Golf Writers Association of America is officially boycotting the affair, saying its “presence, without the ability to ask questions, gives credibility to an event that isn’t worthy of it.”  Woods, 34, is not expected to take questions when he addresses a small group of friends and colleagues – and some tame reporters – at the PGA’s headquarters in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. Still, millions of Americans are expected to stop what they’re doing and watch the world’s greatest golfer tries to rescue what remains of his tattered reputation.

When Woods finishes speaking, it’s back to sex addiction therapy for him, PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem said.

Woods’ secrets began spilling out early on Nov. 27 when he wife reportedly brandished a golf club and confronted him about his mistresses. The fleeing golfer crashed his Cadillac Escalade into a tree – and totalled his carefully-crafted good guy image.

To repair the damage, Woods apologized on his Web site for his “transgressions” and reportedly underwent sex addiction therapy last month at a Mississippi clinic.
