Tiger Woods made his debut from back surgery at the Hero World Challenge a few weeks ago. He has now officially committed to the Genesis Open, which will take place Feb 16-19th.
What do these two tournaments have in common? They both benefit the TGR Foundation. So the question that arrises from this is, is Tiger Woods making a comeback to professional golf or is this all a marketing stunt?
I know a lot of people who would be upset over the latter. This is not to say that Tiger isn’t pumped to play again, which he definitely is, but his motives may be skewed more than originally thought.
“I’m very excited to come back to Riviera and compete in the Genesis Open. This is where it all started for me,” Woods said. “It was my first PGA Tour event, I was 16 years old, I weighed about 105 pounds, and it was a life-changing moment for me.”
It’s just coincidental that when he first announced his return, he also revealed the rebranding of his foundation. Then the two tournaments he plays in (after withdrawing from two others) benefit said foundation, with no promise of playing another event.
Tiger’s not fooling anyone. He needs to either commit to more tournaments or tell it like it really is and stop dicking us around.
Either way we’re still excited to see Tiger play again, no matter what his motives are. We just hope he’s serious about getting back into the thick of things.
If not, here are some women that he should date to distract us from our misery..
Women Tiger Should Date
Kelly recently began dating Leo DiCaprio, so Tiger's got stiff competition. "Just because she's got a goalie, doesn't mean you can't score." - Tiger Woods
Ahh, good ol' Steven Taylor; the former Newcastle United defender is synomous with winning Oscars, nowadays. Currently messing around in the United States with Portland Timbers - the former England Under-21 captain had a Jonathan Woodgate-esque debut for the MLS side. Source: CDN
The first captain to ever lead an England side out at the new Wembley. It wasn't for the senior side, thankfully. God, can you imagine if the Three Lions ever got that desperate in the middle of the park?! Source: Playbuzz
The Chelsea midfielder is believed to hold the unofficial record of the most capped youth player. There's still hope for the midfielder to make the grade, but only if he leaves Stamford 'the place where youth players go to die' Bridge. Source: Standard
A weird move to Hamburg - but the English media called it 'brave' because that's the cliche rhetoric they enjoy. The centre-back is now back in England with Nottingham Forest, so yeah, that's about it. Source: talkSPORT
So bloody glad that smile is still around. Big, big things were expected of the midfielder, when a youth player at Arsenal, but it just wasn't meant to be. Source: Mirror
Adriano, as Gustavo
Adriano, allegedly out on the streets of Brazil earning a living. It seems the ex-Inter Milan striker makes a better gang member than he did footballer. The Brazil man would be a brilliant assistant to Escobar, experienced in the trade, will keep a cool head when needed, and not shy of getting amongst it when needed.

Jamie Vardy, as the lost traveller
Every episode needs that one travelling ‘gringo’, who is purely there for some of Colombia’s finest…’cocoa’ powder. Who better to play that, than England’s one-and-only, Jamie Vardy… ‘bring your vodka and your Charlie’. Source: borderlandbeat/ Getty
Luis Suarez, as Roberto “Poison” Ramos
This was the easiest decision. The Barcelona man would play the horrible bastard that is Poison, better than any other footballer. The characters ruthless savageness is reflected in all forms of Suarez’s play. Source: ew.eps/ Getty
Vinnie Jones, as Horacio Carrillo
Charismatic. Maverick. And fuckin’ nuts. The ‘Crazy Gang’ member would make a cracking, Horacio Carrillo, in leading the Colombian army. The ex-Wimbledon man is a ‘goes against the grain figure’, who would lead by example, leaving nothing out on the field… an obvious choice in our eyes. Source: thelesfilms/ bestbettingsites
Diego Maradona, as Pablo Escobar
Of course, Harry Connick Jr.’s song ‘It had to be you’, comes to mind for this sort of decision. Maradona would definitely be the ring-leader, the don, the pack leader of the antagonists. The Argentine maverick would make the perfect Pablo Escobar. Source: lovelace-media/ destinationsoccer
