Tiger Woods to Join Arnold Palmer Invitational?
Tiger Woods might be hitting his first tee shot since his much publicized admission of having several mistresses by in two weeks. The New York Post reported that Woods is planning to use the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill as his comeback tournament. The tournament starts on March 25, but it would be known by next Friday, the deadline for the confirmation of entries, whether Woods would finally end his self-imposed hiatus from golf.
Woods has reportedly also hired topnotch adviser Ari Fleischer to help rebuild his sullied image. A source close to Woods said the golfer met with Fleischer, who was one of former President George W. Bush‘s advisers, to plan how they would go about his return. Woods has not played in a tournament since the scandal about his sexual trysts broke out in late November. The next month, he announced that he would take an indefinite leave of absence from golf to fix his personal problems.
Earlier this month, reports came out that Woods had begun practicing his golf swing with coach Hank Haney.
