Tiger comeback confirmed

It’s official: Woods will play in The Masters next month


Tiger Woods has chosen the grandest of stages for his golf comeback: Augusta National. On hiatus since November—when news broke that he was cheating on his wife with more than a dozen mistresses—Woods announced this morning that he will return to action at The Masters, which begins April 8. “The Masters is where I won my first major and I view this tournament with great respect,” he said in a released statement. “After a long and necessary time away from the game, I feel like I’m ready to start my season at Augusta.” Woods has undergone almost two months of inpatient therapy for sex addiction, and says that “although I’m returning to competition, I still have a lot of work to do in my personal life.”

Tiger comeback confirmed

  1. Oh wonderful! The" Cheetah" is back in his "Masters bedroom". I hope the media ignores him completely, especially on the course (no camera shots or interviews whatever)!. Otherwise, the prestige of the tournament, the scenery of one of the most beautiful courses on the planet, and the challenges among other players will be ruined by the hyped up presence of a sex addict (or whatever label du jour he'll be using). He may view this tournament with great respect, but the respect "he" once had is so far in the rough that there's no golfing term for it. And "after a long & necessary time away from golf"? What a pathetic statement! Apparently his addictions are far from being cured. Tiger, for the sake of Golf, your marriage & the many fans who idolized you, get well! But please do it out of the limelight! We're all very tired of the "I'm so sorry" charades.

    • we're just as guilty as Tiger in our own self-righteous ways. if he decides to come back and when, it's none of our business. he's not playing it for gold only, but out of his sheer talent and determination to win another Masters tournament. those media people can shut their cameras off if they want to. hell, it's their business too, not Tiger's. but at the end of the day, i bet, these celebrity-in-rough-hungry media people would have all eyes fixed on this MAN. because NO ONE can ignore Tiger Woods.

  2. Budda is baloney as is his sex addiction spin. Leave him alone and let him play golf. Let his wife exact whatever she deems appropriate

  3. Effectively, tiger told Arnie to stuff it. He is a complete jerk and a baby living in a bubble. I hope the fans throw their nike hats at him and moon him on the course.

    • how did he tell Arnie to stuff it? tiger never committed to Bay Hill

      • Look, you old goat, I don't give a rip about you, your tournament, or your sponsors. BTW, call up the golf channel and tell them you understand completely or I will never play in your tournament again. I am going to make the Masters my media bitch, everyone else is just a side show. I already have them committed to throw anyone who even thinks about be disrespectful to me thrown off the property immediately.

  4. Saw him play on tv last night. Yep, he is back alright.

  5. The only player I very much impressed is Tiger Woods and I am just crazy about him.
