ESPNTiger Woods announces return date

 

Tiger Woods, who has been sidelined since March by a back injury, will return to competitive golf next week at the Quicken Loans National.

 

Woods announced his comeback Friday on his official Facebook page, acknowledging he will be "a bit rusty" at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Maryland.

Anyone going? I went to the US Open in 2011, been to this Tiger tourney atleast once (maybe more?), and I went to the Kemper. If I'm going it will likely be Saturday since my cousin is in town and we're getting together on Sunday. This tournament is better when it's held on 4th of July weekend.

It's kinda cool having an event so close, especially when it's really important like an Open or something. But Golf is painful enough to watch on TV most of the time, I couldn't imagine watching it in person.

Speaking as someone who doesn't exactly like watching it on TV, I like going a lot more. It's a completely different experience to me. I would highly suggest giving it a try if you can(or another a year).

It's not fair to be critical when I've never been, so I need to give it a shot at some point... but I just don't think i'd enjoy walking around following a group all day... or staying at the same hole watching the whole field come through all day.

 

How do you do it when you go?

I've done both. I try to walk around if you can a little.

 

For the US Open, we were following Rory, we would walk up two holes ahead after he completed a hole since it was so crowded and tried to get where he'd hit 2nd shot and walk after that to the pin.

 

Not sure if this is the best analogy here, but I'm more of a casual hockey fan than many people here. However, when I go to Verizon, it's a lot more fun compared to watching on TV. I don't feel that way about baseball or basketball or even football.

Thrilled Tiger is coming back. I'm a big enough fan of the game that I'm watching regardless of whether he's playing, but having a no doubt superstar, even if he might not be in his best form, is good for the game.

Very happy to see him come back, but I wonder how much is tied to his hosting this event.

Would hate to see him get hurt again and miss the last 2 majors in 2014.

 

I highly doubt he breaks the record now.

Probably somewhat, but I doubt he's risking it if he's not healthy. He's missed this event in the past.

yeah, but it struck me as really odd how I heard big time golf writers predicting he would miss the entire season just before the US Open....and now he's back.

I think a lot. Heard ticket sales were very low and if hes just going out and shaking the rust off, thats enough to get more people out there. Also heard the U.S. Open had is lowest ratings in a long time.

My brother and I were talking about that this weekend in terms of restaurants. The thing is you aren't usually saving that much in many cases. Take a $10 for $20 deal for example -- you have to spend $10, then you get taxed, then throw in tip. You end up saving $3-4. That's usually a good case scenario too.

Yeah. Sometimes with services you can find a deal. I got something like 4 oil changes for $50 once. Even after tax it ended up like buy 2 get 2 free.

Which should have been expected. The only thing that mattered was him swinging and feeling good and having no ill effects from the surgery...to our knowledge, that was the case.

Tiger jarred his back today and had to WD.

Wonder what this means for the PGA?
