Tiger Woods to Play Next Week in the Accenture World Match Play in Arizona

He's been out of the world of competitive play for nearly a year.  Tiger announced this week that he's fit to play, and he's chosen the World Golf Championship Accenture Match Play in Marana (a Tucson suburb,) to make his debut. What has he missed most in the past year?  "The competition."

Tiger's good for business!  When Tiger comes to play golf, real estate activity follows him.  A Long Realty agent sold a near-million dollar house, and we did the lending on that last year when a fan from Indiana flew here to see Tiger play.

Tucson REALTOR Kent Simpson wrote a blog post last year when Tiger won (yet again!) at Dove Mountain.  Here's the link.

We're looking for more of the same this year.  Welcome back, Tiger!

I was so excited and relieved to hear this great news.  It's been a long dry spell for golf for me. 

The Tiger is back. 

Let's hope he's BACK.

I was so glad to hear that Tiger Woods is ready to start competing again.  The game is just not the same without him.  And I do hope that he is 100%.

Nothing like attracting people's interests through a major event and star.

Tiger Woods is the only reason I've ever watched golf. Someone like him can even get people like me to watch.

He is quite a draw I will be watching on Wed at noon to see him back in action.

Hi Mike, That should be great for your area and I'm sure it will bring new business your way... I'm not a golf fan, but I love the excitement

Hi Mike - OK, I never miss an opportunity to tell this little story....My son LOVES golf. When he was only three years old he was Tigger (as in Winnie the Pooh) for Halloween. He wore his costume for days on end and carried around a golf club. He told everyone he was TIGGER Woods. Hilarious! Anyway...are you going to see Tiger play?

(Thanks for indulging the Mommy in me:)

He's paired with Australia's Brendan Jones for the first round.  Exciting!


The Grandpa in me enjoyed your story.  I expect to see "Tigger" play.


Watch a little on TV; Tiger will make a fan of you.


Once he announced, reporters from the BBC, from Toronto, from France and Australia scrambled to come to Tucson to report.  He's an event all by himself.


I know where you'll be at noon, today, then.


His competitors are happy to see him back for that very reason.


Yes I will!


Me, too!


He says that he's in better shape than ever!
