Woods off sidelines, signs up for double duty

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Looks like Tiger Woods, after sitting on the bench for most of the summer with injuries, plans to play in a golfing double-header right out of the chute.

Not only has Woods committed to play in next week's Bridgestone Invitational, he already has booked a spot the following week in the final major of the season, too.

A PGA of America official on Friday said that Woods has also committed to play at the PGA Championship, to be held Aug. 11-14 at Atlanta Athletic Club.

Woods finished T29 the last time the PGA was staged at AAC, when David Toms won by a shot over Phil Mickelson.

Woods, who has played only nine competive holes since finishing T4 at the Masters in April, has won the PGA title four times.

Woods announced on his website Thursday that he was returning to the game after a more than two-month layoff dating to his withdrawal after nine sloppy holes at the Players Championship in mid-May.

Hey Beer is unhealthy; you're the el tigre ball-washer that's letting emotions confuse you. Anyone who watched his last several tourneys knows he was never in serious contention to actually pull off a victory. Dude; we all know Eldrick was one of THE greatest golfers in history but those days are far removed. I tell you cheetah worshipers that the days of him intimidating the field with his play is a thing of the past. Your hero is a top 50 player, but he has as much chance of a Major victory as K.J. and Lucas Glover. It's just not going to happen and we don't need to hear from you Woodsy fans that he'll return in 2012 with a vengeance. Just face the facts!

Anyone that says Tiger is washed up is letting thier emotions get in the way of the facts. As messed up as Tiger's game has been with his recent problems, his recent Majors record has been... 2010 Masters T4, U.S. Open T4, British Open T23, PGA Championship T28, 2011 Masters T4. This is what you considered washed up? I'd bet that 95% of the professional golfers on the tour wish they were washed up like Tiger. He came within three golfers of winning three of his last five Majors!! If he gets his head right, there should be no reason why he couldn't turn at least one of those T4's into a win.

Heres a good question for you. OWGR min over 2 years is 40. They need a min to keep a rookie from coming in and getting hot in first 2 or 3 and being instant number 1.    But my question is will Tiger ever play 40 in the space of 2 years(the closer he gets to 40 the more each turnnies points count for the average)?????? He is currently at 20 over 2 years and has only averaged 30 or so over his pick and choose years on tour. Hes always been on the low end of starts per year.Don't see him starting more even if he thinks he can be number 1 again . With his average starts per(when healthy not now) he would have to be in top 5 in every one for almost 2 years just to get back to top5.

While watching the tournament today they put up a list of golfers playing next week. At the very top of the list was Tigers name.  If he's in a tie for 3rd. with ten other players, his name is first. If he is out of contention in a tournament he gets more coverage than the guys at the top. I am tired of all the media bias towards Tiger Woods. He doesn't deserve it and he sure hasn't earned it lately. There is no-one on tour who is more rude to the media and fans than Tiger, but the media keeps following him around. Why don't you media people just ignore him for awhile? I guarantee you if you leave him alone long enough he'll come looking for you. After all, if his name isn't mentioned on air he doesn't get the Nike bonus money.

Vegas has set the over/under @ 33 holes that Eldrick will finish. The line on el tigre making the cut is a solid 8 to 1 that he won't be playing the weekend. If our hero was a racehourse, this Bridgestone appearance is nothing more than a workout/jaunt around the track.
