Tiger Woods Signs Up for More Tournaments
Despite his promise to Elin, he’s back to a full schedule.
After the Tiger Woods mega-scandal broke late last year, the superstar athlete said he’d be taking some time off to be with his family and work on his relationship with his wife, Elin Nordegren.
But Tiger’s playing schedule appears to be back to normal. This week he committed to two upcoming PGA tournaments – the Quail Hollow Championship in North Carolina later this month, and the Players Championship in Florida early in May. And he’s signed on to play in at least three tournaments after that, including the British Open.
Elin was reportedly angry at Tiger’s fast return to the golf circuit, feeling that he hadn’t spent nearly enough time trying to repair the relationship that had crumbled following revelations that he had cheated on her with up to 15 women. Woods had asked her to show her support by going with him to the Masters Tournament earlier this month, which marked his return to professional golf, but she refused. The additional tournament dates are sure to make her even more furious.
In other Tiger-related news, RadarOnline.com reported earlier this week that the golfer met with a real-estate agent near his Florida home, and that he went out Monday night with a group of friends to an Orlando restaurant. And over the next two days, he played golf with his superstar friend Michael Jordan.
Meanwhile, Elin flew to Stockholm with the couple’s two children. According to RadarOnline.com, she’s taken four recent trips without her husband, and she’s met with a divorce lawyer.
The most famous adulterer in America appears to have fulfilled at least one promise, however. At a news conference earlier this month, he said that from now on, he’d behave better professionally. So he applied early to enter his two next tournaments; in the past, he’d left organizers hanging by waiting until the last possible moment to apply. Said Players director Jay Monahan, “We…really appreciate the fact that he gave us advance notice.”
