When it comes to Tiger Woods's much anticipated return to competitive golf, the rule is that nobody knows anything. Even Woods himself said last month that he doesn't know when his knee will let him play again. He's only said that he expects to be back for this year's Masters.
So take with a grain of salt the recent Associated Press report that placed his likely return at the Accenture Match Play Championship in Tuscon in late February. Geoff Ogilvy, for one, sounds doubtful. In a light-hearted exchange with reporters at the Mercedes-Benz Championship in Maui, Ogilvy questioned whether Woods would travel all the way across the country to play an event where he could get bounced the first day.
"When is he going to play? When do you think? Match Play?" Ogilvy said. "Do you think
he'll go all the way there to play one round? Doral, maybe drive down
the road? It's cold in Tucson, walking up and down hills.
I don't know. Apparently he's already walking on golf courses and jumping on rocks and that sort of thing."
