The Saviour Returns!

Further to our speculation a couple of days ago, it has been announced that Tiger Woods will return to action at the WGC -Accenture Match Play next week. No surprise really, as Accenture have been filling his coffers for years! Also, it's a prudent move to come back for a match play event. He only has to beat one man at a time and can have a few blowouts without throwing the tournament away. It could backfire on him though, if he goes all the way in the event and has to do 36 holes in the one day. However, if he's back to his imperious best (as those in the know insist he is), I doubt any match would go the distance!

Andy North is of a similar opinion about Tiger's return:

Not only is Golf Predictor delighted to have Tiger back, it's manna from heaven for the US TV networks and everyone associated with the US PGA Tour. With the viability of 40% of tournaments rumoured to be in doubt due to the economic crisis and plunging viewing figures for the networks, Woods couldn't have come back soon enough. Even the other players are delighted to have him back competing, even if he does thrash them most weeks. He is their cash cow after all!
