Tiger Woods in Dongguan for golf? Suuuuurrre he is…

Posted: 04/12/2011 4:46 pm

Alas, we will try not to get into too many Tiger Woods jokes on this page. But it’s just so easy…

The former golfing guru is ostensibly in our fair city to promote PGA golf, but really, with his background and proclivity for ladies of the night, is there any more natural city for him to choose?

Tiger was questioned earlier Tuesday by reporters about his performance at the Masters, in which he finished a respectable fourth. But primarily, he’s here to promote his chosen profession. From the Canadian Press:

Woods was conducting a clinic for junior golfers later Tuesday before moving onto Beijing and then to Seoul, South Korea. He was impressed with the growth of golf in China, and predicted that Chinese golfers will break into the top 50 in the world.

“It’s been really neat as a player who has come here for a number of years to see the development of the fans and their knowledge of the game and their enthusiasm for the sport,” Woods said. “These fans are certainly much more knowledgeable now.

“The growth of golf has been just incredible. A lot more kids are coming out to events whereas when I first came here that wasn’t the case.”

Tiger was actually in Shenzhen 10 years ago, which marked his first visit to China.

If you want to read some Tiger Woods jokes (we’ll admit, many of these are kind of lame) you can find a bunch of them on the Tiger Woods Jokes website.

If anybody has photos of him out and about in Dongguan, be sure to send them over. Especially if he visits the Chang’an Century Kangchang Hotel.
