Reports that Tiger Woods intended to call a press conference on Monday were denied by his agent Mark Steinberg.

Reports that Tiger Woods intended to call a press conference on Monday have been denied by his agent Mark Steinberg.

The former world number one golfer was reportedly set to make a “special announcement” at a press conference on Monday morning.

This after CNN posted on their Twitter account: “Monday 11am ET: Special announcement concerning Tiger Woods on Golf Channel.”

However Steinberg has since told Associated Press that the rumours are unfounded: “There’s an erroneous report that he’s making an announcement, but he’s not.”

No further details had been released concerning the press conference, but it was believed the American would be extending his break from the game.

Woods, 35, announced last week he will not be competing in The Open Championship at Sandwich this weekend after failing to recover from knee and Achilles injuries.

The powerful stroke-player’s last major win was the US open in 2008 and has since slipped down from 1st to 19th position on the Official World Golf Ranking.

NOTE: The only announcement to come out of the Woods camp on Monday concerned his manager.

The announcement said that Steinberg, who last month split with the giant IMG sports and entertainment management group, had now joined Excel Sports Management.

Steinberg’s announcement , via the Golf Channel, came after earlier suggestions that Woods himself was to appear and speak to the station’s Kelly Tilghman.
