Dubai - A United Arab Emirates business magazine says Tiger Woods received $55.4m from a Dubai developer to promote a local golf resort which has yet to be built.

Arabian Business reports on Thursday that it has seen documents confirming Woods received the payments to promote the $1bn course which was to be the centerpiece of a complex of 100 villas, 75 mansions and 22 palaces.

Woods on Wednesday refused to comment on the contract he signed with the course developer - part of a conglomerate controlled by Dubai's debt-squeezed ruler. But he said he hoped to meet with developers to discuss reviving the project while he is in Dubai to play the Dubai Desert Classic that ends on Sunday.
