Tiger Woods will make public statement, then at that time some friends and some colleagues will take part in the press conference. However, The Golf Writers Association of America(GWAA) voted to refuse to participate it .
The Board of Directors of the Golf Writers Association of America voted overwhelming Thursday not to participate as pool reporters today when Tiger issues his first public statement in nearly three months.
“I cannot stress how strongly our board felt that this should be open to all media and also for the opportunity to question Woods,” said Vartan Kupelian, president of the 950-member group.
“The position, simply put, is all or none. This is a major story of international scope. To limit the ability of journalists to attend, listen, see and question Woods goes against the grain of everything we believe.”
The GWAA also believes strongly that its presence, without the ability to ask question, gives credibility to an event that isn’t worthy of it. If it is us who just use cheap golf clubs ,
we don’t need press conference when we made mistakes.
The vote reflected the sentiment. Nineteen voted for the proposal to protest by boycotting the proceedings. There were four votes against the proposal and three abstentions.
Woods’ camp originally made available three pool reporter positions for today’s statement by Woods, during which he is expected to offer his apologies for what he described on his website as “transgressions.”
