Tiger Woods‘ game certainly seems to be on the uptick at the moment. In the past few weeks, Woods got his best finish for the season by clinching the third-place at the Australian Open — and then move from there with the strong showing to reaching the deciding point for United States at Presidents Cup.
Now, it seems everything has started to be woring again for Tiger as he was fondly called. Apart from his hot performance on the course, Woods is also back to making a record apperance fee again. According to what AP’ Doug Ferguson said in his report, “Woods is on track to make upwards of $3 million for just showing up to play the HSBC Championship in Abu Dhabi.”
One week after Tiger Woods took heat for letting his usual tour stop at Torrey Pines in 2012 – a tournament and course he has dominated for over the years for the tournament which is halfway around the globe, and it is very clear that the move, was made by Woods with the huge buck in his mind.
“Tiger’s decision to skip a PGA Tour stop for the European Tour does not mean we will be seeing less of him in the states in 2012. Ferguson also reported that all signs point to Tiger making a return to the Pebble Beach Pro-Am next year, a tournament he hasn’t played in since 2002.
Woods had planned to play Pebble Beach in 2010 when he had the AT&T logo on his bag, though that was before his personal life imploded. He could not play last year because it was opposite the Dubai Desert Classic, and Woods was fulfilling an existing contract.
With the tournament dropping Poppy Hills from the rotation and replacing it with the Shore Course at Monterey Peninsula, you had to figure there was a good chance Woods would consider adding the tournament back to his schedule.
So it looks like West Coast golf fans will get to see Tiger playing on their coast after all. But not before he pockets an enormous payday, of course.”
