Woods, Quail News Good On Two Fronts

Tiger Woods' announcement today that he will play in the Quail Hollow Championship in two weeks was good news on two fronts:

It's great news for the Charlotte tournament, which has been a regular stop on Woods' schedule. There had been encouraging signs about Woods' playing in Charlotte once he announced his return to the PGA Tour prior to the Masters.

Secondly, Woods made the announcement eight days before the commitment deadline, an indication that he is abandoning his policy of waiting until the last day or two before the deadline to announce his participation in events.

It will be Woods' second tournament since the scandal surrounding his personal life surfaced last fall and it will be his first regular tour event.

Quail Hollow officials began developing contingency plans weeks ago for Woods' possible appearance in Charlotte. Media credential applications have been closed, limiting access for non-traditional golf outlets.

In addition to Woods, the tournament is expected to have Masters champion Phil Mickelson in the field. Mickelson said last week he would "definitely" play Quail Hollow though his official commitment has not been received.

Let's use Tiger to put fans in the gallery since 4-time majors champ Phil isn't the same draw. Of course, he lacks the 14 majors of Eldrick and star power. Tiger, they talked about Ali as they paid to see him fight. They talked about Jesus too. Want a love story, talk to Phil. Want 10+ major titles + career grand slam 3-times over + star power, its Eldrick baby.

If you're coming out just to harass golfers, do everyone a favor and stay home.

I think he said he was going to harass the fraud, not all golfers.

Nice to know the Quail Hollow folks are there to meet Tiger's wishes, to help control his soft landing back into the soft world of golf.....shut down media requests? If Tiger wasnt coming, would they have done it that way?

Geeze, this guy Woods has more control over his sport that anyone I could ever imagine.

I hope that any bum who heckles Tiger at Quail Hollow, be escorted to the next hole where their backside can be used as a launching pad for Tiger's next tee shot. I hope he leaves a divot!

Good news for the high class call girls at the high class hotels in Charlotte. Get ready because Tiger is coming and will wear ya'll out. He also likes to play in threesomes.

Hey, the Greens will be in heaven with Tiger here to write about. Remember how Tiger took us to places where we have never been? Ah yes, I can hardly wait to read their columns.
