Late Sunday night reports surfaced that Tiger Woods was preparing to make a “special announcement” live on the Golf Channel at 11 a.m. EST on Monday.

According to his agent, Mark Steinberg, those reports are untrue.

In a statement to the Associated Press, Steinberg said:

“There’s an erroneous report that he’s making an announcement, but he’s not.”

Last week Woods said the injuries that have plagued him this year and kept him out of the U.S. Open last month will prevent him from playing in the British Open as well.

Curiously, Woods’ reported announcement would have conflicted with President Barack Obama’s news conference on the debt ceiling talks.
