As the world wonders if Elin Nordegren will show up Friday at her husband’s highly-orchestrated televised apology, has exclusively learned she will be a no-show.

A source tells that Elin will not be there, as Tiger makes his first public statement about the scandal that has forever tarnished his image as golf’s golden boy.

Elin was snapped Thursday morning as she dropped her daughter Sam off at school near the family’s home in Windermere, a suburb of Orlando, Florida.

When a reporter asked if she would attend the event – she said nothing.


As previously reported, golf's #1 star will break his silence on his extra marital affairs Friday at 11 a.m. EST at TPC Sawgrass Clubhouse in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.

Woods will make a statement -- expected to be 5 to 7 minutes in length -- and will not take any questions during the tightly-controlled media event.

Tiger will make his comments before "a small group of friends, colleagues and close associates," according to a statement released by his rep.

He is expected to apologize for his actions in an attempted to repair his shattered image as golf’s golden boy.

“While Tiger feels that what happened is fundamentally a matter between he and his wife, he also recognizes that he has hurt and let down a lot of other people who were close to him,” the statement continued. “He also let down his fans. He wants to begin the process of making amends and that’s what he’s going to discuss.”

Woods is expected to begin his return to golf next month. As previously reported, he’s expected to skip the WGC-CA at Doral in Miami on March 11th, but will play in the next big golf event, the exhibition Tavistock Cup on March 22nd.

If Tiger does in fact play there, it would help prepare him to  play at the all-important Masters, beginning on April 8th.

Woods has not appeared publicly since late November, when he crashed his SUV into a fire hydrant and a tree outside his Isleworth driveway after an alleged altercation between him and his wife Elin after she learned of his cheating ways.

He since completed a stint in sex rehab in Mississippi and is now living in the couple’s mansion in Windermere, Florida as she stays in a rented home a mile away.
