Tiger Woods is merely on a break and will be returning to sex addiction rehab therapy after he addresses the media later this morning, according to a letter penned by PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem to the tour's policy board.
"As we understand it, Tiger's therapy calls 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," Finchem said in a letter obtained by the Associated Press.
"Accordingly, there was little flexibility in the date for the announcement."
The PGA confirmed that Woods left a treatment facility last week, though no one official has come right out and said he was being treated for a sex addiction.
Woods should confirm that himself today when he breaks his silence.
Tiger Woods is expected to confirm today that he is seeking treatment.
"This is the time frame that met with his rehab schedule, coming out for a little bit, being with his family for a little bit, doing this, it just worked," Finchem said.
"He got out of rehab last week, he spent some time with his family and he had some time for this tomorrow, and he'll address the details of that tomorrow."
"I will leave that to him."
It is unclear if Tiger will discuss his future with his wife - and whether Elin will leave him - or whether his estranged spouse will be by his side this morning.
Woods, according to numerous accounts, checked into Pine Grove Behavioral Health and Addiction Services in Hattiesburg, Miss., back in mid-January.
He will be speaking for the first time since his Thanksgiving car crash at 11 a.m. EST. A leaked statement attributed to him yesterday appears bogus.
