In what his people termed a gathering of a small group of friends, colleagues and close associates (read press conference) the golf champion plans to apologize and talk about his future, which presumably involves performing on the golf course rather than off.
"Tiger plans to discuss his past and his future and he plans to apologize for his behavior," Woods' agent said in a statement obtained by Bloomberg News.

Woods will speak from the clubhouse at the TPC Sawgrass, headquarters of the PGA Tour in Florida.
The news conference will occur during the middle of the Accenture Match Play Championship, one of the sponsors that dropped Woods during his sex scandal, which came to light after his car crash outside his Florida home last Thanksgiving weekend.
Woods' agent says the media will be limited at Friday's news conference.
