What will Tiger Woods say?  That is the question fans and sponsors want to know in the hours before the star athlete is scheduled to make a televised appearance Friday morning in Florida.

It will be Woods' first public appearance since he crashed his car outside his home in Florida on Thanksgiving Day, sparking talk about his marital infidelity. He has since split from his wife, Elin Nordegren and reportedly entered a sex addiction clinic in Mississippi.

According to his publicist, Woods will not take any questions from reporters but will apologize for his actions.

It is not known whether his wife will be with him when he makes the statement on Friday, or whether he has set a date to return to the game of golf.

MARANA, Ariz. - Tiger Woods will end nearly three months of silence Friday when he speaks publicly for the first time since his middle-of-the-night car accident sparked stunning revelations of infidelity. However, his agent said Woods will not take any questions from a small group of media.

"This is not a press conference," Mark Steinberg said Wednesday.

It will be Woods' first public appearance since Nov. 27, when he crashed his SUV into a tree outside his Florida home. Woods' only comments since then have been made through his Web site.

Steinberg said Woods is to speak at 11 a.m. Friday from the clubhouse at the TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., home of the PGA Tour.
