Earlier today I reported at least four Clear Channel radio stations in Asheville, North Carolina, including news radio station WWNC-AM, posted a statement on their respective websites claiming it to be a “leaked” apology from Tiger Woods.
Hank Gola and Corky Siemaszko of the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS report that Team Tiger wasn’t amused by Clear Channel’s “scoop.”
Team Tiger Woods on Thursday branded as “absolutely false” a purported transcript of the public apology the disgraced golfer was preparing to deliver.
In it, Woods announces he and his long-suffering wife Elin Nordegren have agreed to “live apart” - and that he will return to the links this April and play in the Masters Tournament.
The statement surfaced a day after Woods’ agent announced the golfer would make a public apology on Friday.
Glenn Greenspan, spokesman for the Tiger Woods Foundation, would not address the specifics of the supposed statement which was obtained by a North Carolina country & western radio station.
More notable than the statement being debunked is that Woods PR people are now back to actually responding to the media.
