A letter from PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem states, professional golfer Tiger Woods will be returning to therapy after he speaks publicly for the first time about his infidelity.
Finchem's letter to the PGA Tour policy board and other officials explained why Woods chose February 19 to make his first public comments, which are to be televised live by all the major networks.
Woods' statement comes during the Match Play Championship, sponsored by Accenture, the first company to drop him as a pitchman.
"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," CBS News quoted Finchem's letter as saying.
"Accordingly, there was very little flexibility in the date for the announcement," it read.
Woods' speech from the clubhouse at TPC Sawgrass, home of the PGA Tour, is his next major step in image rehabilitation, since his adultery scandal exploded last November.
