Tiger Woods' Return
I'm sure everyone in the world (including the Dalai Lama who, by the way, claims to not know who Tiger Woods is) has heard that Tiger Woods is planning to return to competitive golf at this year's Masters. Assuming that is true, does Tiger have any reason to be concerned about playing the minimum number of events (12?) that he needs to keep his card for next year? I know it sounds ridiculous but doesn't the Tour have a minimum number that players must play to retain their playing privileges? He plays a pretty sparse schedule to begin with and having missed 2-3 events he would've normally played already, might this become an issue? I would love to see him have to play, like, the Frys.com Open in late October to keep his card. That would suit me just fine. Whatever the case, I'm glad he's coming back sooner rather then later, if for no other reason then we, as golf fans, can finally get past this "when's he coming back?" banter and get on with rooting for the best golfers in the world.
