Will Tiger top 'Twilight' on Ustream?

Posted: 12:53 PM ET

Tomorrow, the tabloid-friendly tale of golf star Tiger Woods is poised to become the biggest online video event of the year.

Woods has called a press event to speak publicly for the first time since a Nov. 27 car crash outside his home spiraled into a cavalcade of reports about his marital infidelities and sexual exploits.

His statement will be broadcast live on Ustream – the popular online video site – by its partner, CBS News. The event is scheduled for 11 a.m. ET.

Massive international interest in Tiger's golf future and the story’s salacious details – combined with the fact that the appearance falls in the middle of the workday for many in the United States – suggests that online viewership could easily enter the millions.

Tiger will be chasing a pack of young vampires if he hopes to be Ustream’s biggest star, though.

In November, more than 2 million unique Ustream viewers watched live red-carpet activity before the premiere of the blockbuster movie “Twilight: New Moon."

Ustream also has social-media tie-ins, letting users post messages to Facebook, MySpace and Twitter as they watch – and, no doubt, increasing interest as they do.

Golf, by itself, is just too boring.
What goes on, off the green, is more entertaining.

Rhythm and consistency are important, so how you get ready both physically and mentally for the game is essential. Tiger has a practice routine that he does before every single game. He uses the same clubs, and the last club he uses for his pre-game warm-up is the one he plans to use for the first hole.;
