Tiger Woods will make his highly anticipated return to professional golf at The Masters in Augusta on April 8th-11th.
Tiger’s announcement came on Tuesday, ending four months of speculation as to if / when he would rejoin the PGA Tour and resume his illustrious career. Rumors began swirling recently that Woods was ready to return to golf after he was spotted with swing coach Hank Haney at a driving range in Florida. It was initially thought that he would begin his 2010 PGA season at a smaller tournament like the Tavistock Cup or the Arnold Palmer Invitational, but Tiger opted for playing in a major and vying for his fifth green jacket.
“The major championships have always been a special focus in my career and, as a professional, I think Augusta is where I need to be, even though it’s been a while since I last played.” – Tiger woods via a statement on TigerWoods.com
So how will his return affect The 2010 Masters tickets sales, The 2010 Masters television ratings, and Tiger Woods endorsements? Will the public be accepting of Tiger or continue to vilify him for the slew of infidelity reports that surfaced after one of the most famous non-injury producing car crashes of all time? Are you personally willing to forgive Tiger Woods or will he continue to be the punch line of jokes and rap songs?
Just when you think you have seen it all with Tiger Woods – a new mistress, another sponsor dropping him, Elin leaving, TMZ reporting his mother in law going to the hospital, etc – something comes out of nowhere to bring new media attention.
Granted, this might not be exactly newsworthy, more like hilarious, but rap hip/hop artist Maino has recorded a new Tiger Woods Rap song (actually praising him) called Get ‘Em Tiger.
Get Em Tiger lyrics include such funny statements as “I got women in the ‘burbs Women in the the hood Yeah my wifey mad ’cause she knows I’m no good” and “Not the one you settle down with I’m the type that call up your friend And mess around with This is who I am This is how I love Still trying to find a place To swing my golf club”
We at SaveFans! can’t wait to see what the PGA Golf tour is like when Tiger finally returns. Can you say circus?!?!

$100 spent on a ticket… Check… A phone call into work claiming “sore throat” that got you the day off Ferris Bueller style… Check… Text messages to all your friends letting them know you will see the best player on planet Tiger Woods and they won’t… Check… USGA policy regarding Thursday’s postponed round at the U.S. Open… No rainCHECKS.
Fans that attended the opening round of the U.S. Open at Bethpage Black in New York got some nasty news from the USGA regarding their ticket purchase. Most of the tens of thousands of ticket holders for Thursday’s round saw less than 3 hours of golf due to rain that forced the lead group to call it quits before finishing 11 holes. A typical round of golf lasts almost 12 hours. But according to Rand Jerris of the USGA their inclement weather policy prohibites any refund for tickets due to the rain delay:
“If play has commenced (i.e., if one player has played his first shot), it is the policy of the USGA that tickets will not be refunded or exchanged for a later date.”
The USGA should be ashamed of themselves. There’s really no more to say on this subject. Just enjoy this free clip of Tiger Woods doing what he does best. Ironically this is more golf than people who paid $100 got to see:
