Golf superstar Tiger Woods says on his Web site that he'll be joining the Obama inauguration festivities.

Woods, who is recuperating from knee surgery, is not known for being politically active. But he has agreed to speak Sunday at a concert being held at the Lincoln Memorial

Woods posted a short statement on his Web site to say he would
speak at "We Are One," a concert and celebration that will
feature entertainers such as Beyonce, U2, Stevie Wonder and Garth
Brooks. Denzel Washington and Martin
Luther King III will also speak.

"I am honored that I was invited to this historic event and
look forward to participating in Sunday's festivities," Woods
said.

Woods has been out of action on the golf tour since undergoing knee surgery last summer.
