Who will win? It could be YOU!
There’s only a few days left for Tiger Woods to commit to the Quail Hollow Championship, the Charlotte PGA Tour event running from April 30 to May 3.
But, if history is to repeat itself, the golf great will likely wait until the last minute to make his decision.
(Always the grandstander, that guy – we don’t know how his wife puts up with it. We kid, of course – but come on, guy; we’re holding our breath here!)
Because of his surgery, Tiger wasn’t able to compete last year, but if you recall, he hit the Hollow links in 2007 and emerged victorious.
He has even stiffer competition this time around though, seeing as how Phil Mickelson, Trevor Immelman and seven other top-ranked golfers, including Sergio Garcia, Padraig Harrington and Vijay Singh, have already thrown their hats into the ring.
You hear that, Tiger? These guys are lined up for a shot at the spotlight. You’re not gonna let them take you down without a fight, right?
T-minus 2 days and counting…
The PGA Tour has regained its sparkling star, but will his brilliance dull during his first stroke play since over 8 months ago?
Tiger Woods returned to the PGA Tour toward the end of February to compete at the Accenture Match Play. Though he lost in the second round to South Africa’s Tim Clark, it was the first time Woods had competed after an eight-month hiatus following ACL surgery in his left knee. In a recent news conference, Tiger was confident about his knee, stating that, “from a physical standpoint, it was better than I thought it would be.”
Tiger is now confronting his next challenge of the PGA Tour at the WGC-CA Championship at Doral Resort and Spa today. So What Are His Chances this week at the Doral’s “Blue Monster?”
