It's the first public appearance by Woods since he decided to take an indefinite leave of absence in December.
According to Woods' agent Mark Steinberg, the world's No. 1 golfer plans to "discuss his past and his future and he intends to apologize for his behavior."
Woods will be speaking to "friends, associates and colleagues" at the TPC Sawgrass clubhouse, according to Steinberg.
PGA TOUR Commissioner Tim Finchem said Wednesday, "I'm pleased that he's going to make some comments and do what the statement says he's going to do, so that's good news.
Finchem, speaking from the press room at the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship, said he will be in attendance when Woods reads his statement.
"I don't know what his plans are in terms of what he's going to say," the commissioner said. "I don't know what he's going to do after he finishes his rehab."
Players participating at the Accenture Match Play Championship were asked about the impending Woods statement.
"It's encouraging that he's coming back to at least be seen by the public and the rest of us, too," Stewart Cink said. "I consider myself the public when we're talking about this matter. So it's good that we're going to see Tiger Woods. ...
"I think this is maybe the beginning of the comeback process for him."
Added Sergio Garcia: "I guess everybody is going to get their answers."
"He's got to come out at some point," said Rory McIlroy. "I mean, it's just went on for so long."
I can't wait to see what Tiger has to say. I really wish he would take questions from the media.
