Tiger Woods - Tiger Woods Suffers Further Blow After Golf Course Is Suspended

TIGER WOODS suffered a further blow to his global 'brand' this week after it was announced that developers creating his first golf course design have suspended work indefinitely.
TIGER WOODS, who was dropped by several sponsors in the wake of his apparent infidelities and subsequent divorce, will no longer be opening 'The Tiger Woods Dubai' course as planned, after developers put a halt to the project, reports the UK's Guardian newspaper.
The $1.1 billion golf and property development was initially due to open in late 2009, however, the global financial crisis meant it was postponed. However, Woods' hopes that the complex would be completed in the near future were dashed after 'Dubai Properties' issued a statement confirming that developers had ceased work, adding, "This decision was based on current market conditions that do not support high-end luxury real estate. These conditions will continue to be monitored and a decision will be made in the future when to restart the project". As well as the golf course itself, the project was also set to feature a boutique hotel and a Michelin-starred restaurant. Over the past year, Woods has lost some of his biggest commercial sponsors such as AT&T, the financial film Accenture, Gillette and Golf Digest, however, sports giants Nike have stuck by him.
Back in 2010, after the National Enquirer had revealed details of Woods apparent infidelities, the golfer was forced to make a televised public apology to his family, friends, and supporters. In August 2010, he finalised his divorce from wife ELIN NORDEGREN.

The writer of this article should do their research. This was not Tigers 1st golf course design. His 1st design, which is still on track, is located just east of Asheville, NC and called "The Cliffs at High Valley".

I don't think what Tiger did in his personal life is anybodies business but his wife. I started watching golf because of Tiger...still watch golf because of Tiger.Because Tiger brought a lot to golf. I'm sure the people who were indorsing him before "the incident" were making a bundle of money off from him. No one is perfect. How come all the movie stars and rock stars can have babies without being married and they still get endorsments?

The basis of the article is that Tiger Woods created an image of himself as something he really was not...an all-american athlete. His agent Mark Steinberg pimped him out to corporate america and now they realize that both of them are frauds. Maybe he will be able to rebuild himself but the reality is that he needs to focus on his game...rid himself of distractions like golf course designs, IMG trying to market him, and show some compassion without making it look like its packeged by his enabling agent.

Tiger will always be the most exciting golfer in the world because of him golfers make more money and he has been an inspiration to many different races....the woman he was married to knew that she wanted the money if she only had children and nannies are always suspect....when he wins another tournament it will be on...phil is not the best player he will never best Tiger's record. Go Tiger....

It these is real they are treating these guy like he kill a person or worse. I know what he did is nothing to laugh about but enough is enough they are ponishing him like he is a murderer or repist. I have seen people do worst thing that cheat on his wife and they are not treated like he is.

This is the most disingenuous article I've read in a while. The suspension of the project clearly had nothing to with Woods yet you take this opportunity to rehash this scandal which is old news now. Move on to Ben Rothlisbergers' problems now.

I consider this article as 'piling on' and 'spin.' Why is this a hit to his global brand? The economy in the world is horrible - the stoppage of work for this course isn't Tiger's fault. It is not a hit to his brand, it is a missed opportunity for his brand to grow. Let's be clear.

Tiger had everything, a beautiful wife and children, megabucks, megahouse, sponsorships everywhere, and respect. Now he places 44th in a major tournament, no one wants to sell anything with his name on it, Dubai cancels his golf course, no respect, and his current girlfriend is his right hand. That's what happens when you trade in a perfect life for sluts and freaky sex.
