It looks like Tiger is finally ready to show his face to the world as he prepares for his highly-anticipated press conference in Florida this Friday

Does this look like a man under pressure to you? Getting ready to face the world for the first time since his multi-woman cheating scandal broke over Thanksgiving weekend, Tiger Woods braved public scrutiny and hit the town for a run with his personal trainer.

Looking fit and composed, the philandering golf pro, 34, released some stress while running with his trainer in Florida Feb. 17, just hours after announcing that he will conduct a press conference on the morning of Friday, Feb. 19 at the PGA Tour headquarters in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. Tiger is expected to speak publicly for the first time ever about cheating on his wife, Elin Nordegren, 30.

“Tiger will be speaking to a small group of friends, colleagues and close associates…at the TPC Sawgrass clubhouse in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL. Tiger plans to discuss his past and his future and he intends to apologize for his behavior,” the athlete’s sports agent, Mark Steinberg, told Bloomberg News. He added, “Tiger feels as though it’s time to make amends and to publicly do that. This has all come together quite quickly.” When asked if Tiger will discuss when he plans on returning to the golf course, Mark stated, “It’s probably just best that you be there.”

As he gears up to make his first attempt at salvaging his marred public image, Tiger is still working on trying to patch up his marriage. He and his cuckolded wife Elin had dinner together on Feb. 16. “They are still living separately,” a source close to the couple told RadarOnline.com. “But they had dinner together and that’s a big development.” Despite his pleas that she move back home, Elin and Tiger went separate ways following the meal.

Although she’s put her divorce lawyer on hold, Elin is still taking it slow when it comes to decide as to whether she’ll take her husband back in the wake of his multiple extramarital affairs. Obviously Elin is still on the fence as to whether a Tiger can actually change his stripes. Wouldn’t you be?
