Tiger Woods Will Make TV Return

Tiger Woods recently announced that he would be back on the greens soon.

In a statement released by Woods, he expressed that he’d be returning to work for The Masters (that is, if he qualifies).

Probably nobody is happier about this than the PGA & sponsors, as their ad revenue is based on the number of viewers – which has dropped anywhere from 20-50% (depending on the tournament) with Tiger’s absence.

Here’s the statement:

The Masters is where I won my first major and I view this tournament with great respect. After a long and necessary time away from the game, I feel like I’m ready to start my season at Augusta.

“The major championships have always been a special focus in my career and, as a professional, I think Augusta is where I need to be, even though it’s been a while since I last played.

“I have undergone almost two months of inpatient therapy and I am continuing my treatment. Although I’m returning to competition, I still have a lot of work to do in my personal life.

“When I finally got into a position to think about competitive golf again, it became apparent to me that the Masters would be the earliest I could play. I called both Joe Lewis and Arnold Palmer and expressed my regrets for not attending the Tavistock Cup and the Arnold Palmer Invitational. I again want to thank them both for their support and their understanding. Those are fantastic tournaments and I look forward to competing in them again.

“I would also like to thank the Augusta National members and staff for their support. I have deep appreciation for everything that they do to create a wonderful event for the benefit of the game.
