Trio's Tiger Talk is Actually on the Record

alg_tiger_cries.jpgSince we convened here last, three persons of interest have come forward to discuss all manner of issues related to Tiger Woods.

As we repeated, er, reported, yesterday, a person 'with knowledge of his schedule,' who 'spoke on condition of anonymity because only Woods is authorized to release such information,' covertly told the Associated Press that the great golfer was back home in Orlando hitting golf balls as well as the weights.

We took all that information we pieced together on deep background to conclude that Woods was going to be back on the golf course sooner, rather than later.

Among the many buying this supposition is one Jack Nicklaus. Nicklaus who also spoke to the Associated Press because he authorized himself to do so as the greatest player ever and all, said, "I'd be very surprised if he doesn't play something before Augusta."

This is noteworthy, because in addition to not writing a blog for Real Clear Sports, he might have some insight into the thinking of the golfer currently chasing down all his records when he isn't chasing skirts.
As the AP story sort of says, Nicklaus has been reticent to comment on Tiger's skirt-chasing, because in addition to not writing a blog for Real Clear Sports, he has always had a ton of class to go along with a ton of game.

"I can't imagine in 100 years he's going to miss this," Nicklaus said about Woods playing in the Masters. "None of you guys do either," he said to the press.
"But I don't know. I don't know. I've been very noncommittal about anything as it's not my business. But as it relates to him playing golf, my guess is as a golfer he's going to want to try to play Augusta if he's got his other things in order."

And there was time he did allegedly have "his other things in order."
