The PGA Tour is relying on Tiger to get them through these tough times
The golf world can breathe a huge sigh of relief with Tiger Woods back in the tournament mix. While Phil Mickelson’s win on Sunday made for some must-see television, Woods’ presence at the WGC Accenture match play gives the sport a major headline on weekend where the tournament could be the biggest story out there.
Assuming Tiger makes it to the weekend (which, at the time, seems to be the biggest question mark of all), golf could grab a lion’s share of the television ratings. ESPN is dedicating their entire front page to the story, as are most of the other major sport websites. Finchem and Co. better pray to the heavenly golf gods that the knee holds up. If it does, then it’s game on for the golfing world.
