NEW YORK (CBS) NBC Sports has published what it says is the leaked text of Tiger Wood's prepared speech, first obtained by a North Carolina radio station, but a Tiger representative is calling it a fake.

Glenn Greenspan, spokesman for the Tiger Woods Foundation, told the New York Daily News that the purported transcript obtained by WKSF FM 99.9 is "absolutely false."

In the alleged statement, Woods says that "sadly things have not worked out" between him and his wife Elin Nordegren, despite their reported efforts to patch things up.

The station wouldn't tell the paper how it got its hands on the text, nor would answer any questions when Crimesider called.

Woods will speak publicly Friday for the first time since his bizarre Thanksgiving night car accident, beginning what his agent called "the process of making amends" for the sex scandal that sent him into hiding for three months.
