3/21 Tiger Woods interview on ESPN tonight at 7:30 PM

ESPN will be airing an interview with Tiger Woods tonight at 7:30 PM eastern time. The interview is with Tom Rinaldi and will be only the second time Tiger has spoken publicly since his SUV crash early Thanksgiving morning as news of his numerous affairs became public. ESPN has said that the only restriction on the interview is a big one: it can be no longer than five minutes. Rinaldi did say that Tiger refused to answer questions about the night of the crash and that there were some startling things revealed in the interview.

The interview comes just two and a half weeks before Tiger Woods is scheduled to make his return to professional golf at the 2010 Masters Tournament in Augusta, Georgia. (Be sure to read the Top Ten Things You Might Hear When Tiger Returns To The Masters!)

Tiger was hit with another wave of embarrassing media attention earlier this week when former mistress and adult film star Joselyn James released a series of very descriptive, kinky and sometimes violent text messages sent to her by Tiger. (You can read those here.) Radar Online reports that Elin has taken the kids and left the couple’s Orlando-area home and relocated in Palm Beach for the time being. The site says the latest fallout stems from Tiger Woods’ decision to return to golf so quickly, but certainly talks of golden showers with a porn star couldn’t have helped.
