- Associated Press - Monday, July 11, 2011

There was no major announcement from Tiger Woods on Monday, no matter what the hours of frenzied speculation online said.

Late Sunday, Golf Channel promoted that it would release some news involving Woods on Monday morning. That turned out to be word that his agent, Mark Steinberg, was joining Excel Sports Management.

But before that, Steinberg had to correct the rumors buzzing around the Internet that the golfer was about to make a big announcement about himself.

Steinberg told The Associated Press on Monday: “There’s an erroneous report that he’s making an announcement, but he’s not.”

Woods said last Tuesday he would skip this week’s British Open because of “minor injuries” to his left leg that haven’t fully healed, the second straight major he will miss.

Steinberg left IMG in May.
