UPDATED We’re usually not much into celebrity gossip, but we have to admit that Tiger Woods’ rapid descent from golf stardom to yellow press fodder has been fascinating, if only for the fact that it seemed much more like a bad TV movie than real life. A car crashed into a tree? The questionable use of a golf club? Countless mistresses? It’s certainly been an interesting ride.
However, one voice that’s been missing form the media circus is that of Woods himself, which is why he has decided to hold a press conference at the PGA Tour Headquarters in Florida this Friday. This is Woods’ first public statement in months, and he is expected to tell us about his plans to return to the world of golf.
The press conference will undoubtedly be covered by countless mainstream media organizations. Of course, you don’t have to miss out on it if you happen to be stuck in an office cubicle without any TV nearby either. Ustream will carry the event in real at at 8 am PST / 11 am Eastern, thanks to its cooperation with CBS News. The live stream will be available at www.ustream.tv/cbsnews.
UPDATED: Ustream and CBS News won’t be alone in their online coverage. YouTube announced it too will have a live stream of the press conference on its CitizenTube channel, which can be watched at www.youtube.com/CitizenTube.
Hulu will also be live streaming the press conference, courtesy of its partner, ABC News. The stream can be watched through the following embedded player.
