Tiger Woods now has confirmed his first course design gig. He’ll be designing a 7700 yard, par 72 course in Dubai. Those folks in Dubai sure like having Tiger around and the love throwing money at him.
Full story here
Actually, Iâ€™m quite surprised that Tiger would agree to do this in Dubai. Tigerâ€™s done a significant amount of charitable work and seems to be dedicated to making doing what he can to make a difference in as many peoples lives as he can. Dubai is currently in an economic and industrial boom that rivals or exceeds any in history. Unfortunately, this has come to be through the use of labor camps that are riddled with accusations of slavery, inhumane conditions, and human rights violations. Iâ€™m actually very surprised that Tiger would associate with this economic growth, especially after the aforementioned accusations were made so public on primetime television just recently.
That being said, and off my soapbox, I am very interested to see the courses that Tiger designs throughout his career. I canâ€™t think of a more qualified person to do so.
