The press has Tiger mania about Tiger mania. They’re all going crazy about Tiger playing in Australia, and his $3 million appearance fee. The course, Kingston Heath measures out at 6923 yards (I had to convert it from meters), which is pretty short for PGA Tour players and the scores reflect it. Tiger sits at -10 (66, 68) after two rounds and has a three shot lead currently. I’ll try to wind the DVR up and watch a bit this weekend…

Tiger Woods is playing in the Australian Masters this November. Unlike the PGA Tour, other tours can pay appearance fees so Tiger is getting his, a paltry $3,000,000. Tiger’s appearance fee for one non PGA Tour event is more than many PGA Tour players make in a year.
I get an appearance fee too
I’m playing today with my Thursday group. Last week I had to pay all three pals their appearance fees of about $16.00. I hope to receive an appearance fee, rather than pay to play today.
