Tiger Woods is honored at being picked for the President’s Cup

Tiger Woods is very honored to be a captain’s pick for the Presidents Cup and truly believed he earned the selection.

The former number-1 player was selected by United States captain Fred Couples.

Woods has been out of golf for much of the summer, missing two majors. He has played only eight PGA Tour events this season due to injuries to his left knee and Achilles tendon.

Woods was out of competition for four months, from the Masters in April to the Bridgestone Invitational in August, making sure his injuries were healed.

Woods will get his game together competing in the Open which will be held October 6-9 at CordeValle Golf Club, which his located about 45 minutes south of Stanford University, where he attended college.

Tiger Woods is coming back to the PGA Tour

The wait is over for golf fans. Tiger Woods is returning to competitive golf.

After missing two majors in an 11-week break to heal his left leg, Woods announced Thursday evening on his Twitter account and his website that he would be returning next week at the Bridgestone Invitational in Akron, Ohio.

The last time Woods played on Tour, was on May 12 at the Players Championship when he hobbled off the course injured after shooting a 6-over-par 42 on the front nine and he had to withdraw.

Woods missed three months and four tournaments he usually plays, the Stanford grad has dropped from #81 to #133 in the FedEx Cup standings. Only the top 125 players qualify for the opening round of the playoffs at The Barclays. He will need the Bridgestone Invitational and the PGA Championship to give him a chance to move up eight spots.

He has gone more than 20 months without a win and there are some golf experts who think he will never recover to his once-proud winning form.


Several changes have happened in Woods’ world since he last played.

He recently fired his caddy for the past 12 years, Steve Williams; his ranking out of the top 20, at 21 is his lost ever and his eligibility on the PGA Tour was becoming in jeopardy if his hiatus had lasted any longer.

Thursday night, the Golf Channel reported that Bryon Bell, a childhood friend and president of Tiger Woods Design, would caddie for him at the Bridgestone Invitational. Bell has caddied for Woods three times in 1999, 2000 and 2003.

He is ranked at #21 in the world, his lowest ranking since January 26, 1997.

Turning Stone Resort not on PGA Tour event list in 2011

Every golfer on the PGA Tour couldn’t wait for the date on the calendar each season when they could go to Verona, New York to play at Turning Stone Resort.

The venue offered the golfers, their families, Tour officials and media a chance to fish in nearby Lake Ontario.

Well at least for now, they won’t have the opportunity to play there in the future.

The Turning Stone Resort Championship is off the PGA Tour schedule after a nice four-year run.

The event, played at Atunyote Golf Club since 2007, will not return to the schedule in 2011. Turning Stone, which is owned by the Oneida Indian Nation, was seeking a date during the Tour’s regular season, but a mutually acceptable date did not materialize.

Ray Halbritter, representative for Oneida Nation, said the resort wanted a stand-alone date in either June, July or August, two weeks before or after a major.

In 2007, the first tournament was held in September. The torunament was then moved to October for the next two years and was held in August of 2010 opposite the Bridgestone Invitational.
