Tiger Woods’ agent says the golfer is not making any announcements Monday.
Mark Steinberg was responding to rumours late Sunday that Woods was making an unspecified announcement Monday morning on Golf Channel.
Steinberg told The Associated Press on Monday: “There’s an erroneous report that he’s making an announcement, but he’s not.”
Rumours of the press conference began after a post on Twitter from the Golf Channel appeared Sunday evening, however no further information was released.
The tweet has since been taken down. No word on if the site was hacked or if the tweet was just posted in error.
Speculation quickly began that the golfer would announce that injury was preventing him from finishing the 2011 season.
The 35-year-old golf champion has not won a tournament since 2009 and has fallen to number 19 in the official world golf ranking.
Woods announced last week that he would not be playing in the British Open until he has completely recovered from knee and ankle injuries.
