Tiger Woods still doesn't have timetable for return to golf


The project announced Tuesday in the Ozark Mountains of Missouri will include the first public access golf courses designed by Woods's TGR Design.

Payne's Valley at Big Cedar Lodge Resort is a 19-hole course that pays tribute to the late Payne Stewart, a three-time major victor who was born in nearby Springfield, in Southwest Missouri.

Woods' design firm, TGR Design, is handling the course, which is the first public course TGR Design has handled.

Little kid, maybe 10, just challenged Tiger to a competition at Big Cedar Lodge.

Woods' bond with Stewart - whose wife Tracey was in attendance for the announcement - was strong and he's not taking the responsibility of being involved in this legacy course lightly.

The course is expected to open in 2019.

"I wish her the best, but she's gone through so many caddies, she needs to wake up on caddie-player relationships", Matthews, a former bag-man to US Masters champion Sergio Garcia, told golf Digest. "Tiger and I were talking today as we were driving around".

The road to recovery for Tiger Woods - if one exists at all - is a rather long one indeed.

The 18-time major victor was in Missouri for the announcement of the first public course designed by Woods' company TGR Design.

The 41-year old Woods was then cheered on as he hit just wedge shots into a stunning par-three laid out in front of a steep cliff face and waterfall.

Big Cedar Lodge, owned by Bass Pro Shops founder Johnny Morris, offers five golf courses as well as hunting and fishing activities.

The photo with his official Twitter account shows Woods not on a golf course with a club in hand, but sitting at a table and looking over designs for a golf course. "I have traveled all over the world and played all over the world".
