In the world of golf, things are ever-changing. New players emerge, some retire, and others make a comeback to win championships until the cycle starts all over again. As any golf player might agree, Tiger Woods, who once lead the world as number one golf champion, has had his share of ebbs and flows in the game of golf. In an effort to make it as the comeback kid, Woods has announced that he will play in next month’s $1.02 million Honda Classic – the first time ever in his career as a golf professional.
“I’ve heard great things about the Honda Classic and now that I live here in Florida I want to play whenever possible,” said Woods on his website.
“Jack Nicklaus’s involvement in the tournament and the benefits to the local community are also important,” he added.
Woods previously attended the Honda Classic when he was just 17 years old in 1993. Back then, the emerging golf superstar was just an amateur among thousands of other players who hoped for the same brilliant future Woods, for the most part, enjoys today.
Golf fans are eager to watch Woods play at the Honda Classic, especially after his recent loss to Phil Mickelson at Pebble Beach Sunday. Woods hasn’t won a championship in the last 30 months, so fans are eager for a sweep at the Honda Classic next month.
“I’m excited about my start and look forward to keep building,” said Woods. “I’ve made great strides from last year and hopefully all my hard work will pay off with a victory soon.”
Woods has slipped to #18 in world rankings.
For Tiger fans out there, watch for Woods to compete in next week’s WGA-Accenture Match Play Championship in Marana, Arizona – a tournament where the golf pro has done exceptionally well, winning in 2003, 2004, and 2008. He will also play at the WGC-Cadillac Championship March 8 through 11 in Miami.
