Tiger Woods is coming back to the PGA next week to play in the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, according to a tweet from the man himself:
Feeling fit and ready to tee it up at Firestone next week. Excited to get back out there!
Two things: first, it's hilarious that he got the name wrong of the first tournament in which he's competing in months. Hilarious. For a guy who's had such a carefully crafted public image for so long, and who's desperately trying to gain back some sponsors, this is an A-plus slip-up, even though it's completely excusable considering how close he was.
Second, it'll be good to have Tiger back. Rory McIlroy's magical run at the U.S. Open was enough to briefly capture the golf world's imagination, but once he was out of the running of the British Open, folks went right back to not giving a damn about golf. Next week, that will change.
