DORAL, Fla. — If you were not already suffering from Tiger Woods overload, worn out by excessive speculation supported by hardly a shred of fact, then the last 24 hours more than likely changed that.
The annoyance level reached new heights Friday with dueling news stories reporting Woods’ plans for returning to golf, both quoting unnamed sources and each contradicting the other.
One report has the sex-scandal plagued golfer making his comeback at theArnold Palmer Invitational, scheduled for March 25-28 at the Bay Hill Lodge and Club in Orlando, Fla. The other says Woods will return at Augusta National for the Masters, the year’s first major championship, in early April.
"Just wait and see," suggested Vijay Singh, playing at this week’s CA Championship, a World Golf Championship with an elite international field that, it has been pointed out all week, is missing Tiger Woods.
Although logical, Singh’s advice is destined to go unheeded.
