Tiger Woods Misses World Golf Championship

Tiger Woods will not be in the WGC Match play championship, better known as the World Golf Championship.  The deadline to sign up was at 5:00pm Eastern time, and no one heard from Tiger Woods.  Who benefits if Tiger Woods doesn’t play?  England’s Ross McGowan, who has never played in the World Golf Championship event because if the world’s number one golfer, Tiger Woods  had showed up that would have knocked out Ross McGowan who ranked 66th in the close of qualificaitons last week.

The world is waiting and watching for Tiger Woods to make his first golf appearance after his affair and cheating on his wife, Elin Nordegren. 

So the world must continue to ask, Where is Tiger Woods, but Ross McGowan says, “Whew!’ 

 

 

 

Steve Stricker will be the No. 1 seed in the 64-player match play event, which begins Wednesday.

 

 

Woods has won the tournament three times and made his highly anticipated return to golf following knee surgery at last year’s event in Arizona, winning his first match before being defeated in the second round by South Africa’s Tim Clark.

 

 

An appearance this year was not expected.

 

 

Woods has made no public comments since announcing on his Web site on Dec. 11 that he was taking an indefinite leave from golf while acknowledging marital infidelity.

 

 

Since then, Accenture, the sponsor of the tournament, dropped Woods as an endorser. And there have been no reports that Woods has even been working on his game.

 

 

If the past is any indication, Woods, who has 71 PGA Tour victories and 14 major titles, is unlikely to play at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, where he has not played for years, or the Honda Classic, where he has never played as a pro.

 

 

That would make the next possibility the WGC-CA Championship at Doral, where he has won three times
