Tiger to return for Memorial

2010-05-25 07:47

Los Angeles - Tiger Woods will return to competition from a recent neck injury at next week's Memorial Tournament, reported the Golf Channel on Monday.

Woods withdrew on the seventh hole of the final round of the Players Championship in his last outing on May 9. He pulled out with an injury that was later determined to be an inflamed joint in his neck.

According to the Golf Channel, Woods will also take part in a nine-hole Wednesday skins match at Muirfield Village.

Woods is the defending champion at the Memorial. Last year he collected his fourth career title at the event, shooting rounds of 69-74-68-65. He beat Jim Furyk by a one shot.

    @ Willie who asked the question: 1) Tiger wins the tournament every 3rd time he plays. 2) Tiger is the current World No.1, 14 majors, 71 US PGA Tour victories, 95 victories worldwide, the next best player about 30 victories, including 4 majors; 3) Tiger brings intensity to golf and to any tournament he competes in - the rest of the players elevate their games when Tiger is in the field because they want to beat him; 4) Golf is big business, and relies heavily on Advertising Spend - When Tiger not in the field, tv ratings down 60%! (that means 60% fewer people watch) (Source Dennis Hutchens, the European Tour TV Commentator, ex- player, 5) This is the greatest golfer (not human being) of our time, and may end up being the greatest golfer ever (if he wins more than 18 majors). Also Tiger is the defending champion at Memorial, and it's respectful to play where Jack Nicklaus, current greatest player of all time, is the host. If you don't like him, don't root for him, but don't ask stupid questions. Please stick to making witless remarks about Tiger's personal life, like the guy who admits he has a "lump of coal" between his ears...
