Views : Tiger Woods linked with February return

Tiger Woods is reportedly targeting a return to golf at the WGC Match Play Championship in Arizona on 17 February.
World number one Woods, 34, who has won 14 majors, has not appeared in public since crashing his car last November and later admitting to "infidelity".

"Rumours of his return surfaced in Australia and were initially greeted with scepticism, but persist," said BBC golf correspondent Iain Carter.


"It would be a surprise but a reliable source says he will play in Arizona."

Woods, announced on 12 December 2009 that he was taking an indefinite break from playing golf to tackle problems in his private life.

His last tournament was the Australian Masters in Melbourne, which he won on 15 November. The crash happened 12 days later.

The Melbourne Herald Sun newspaper reports that his management team has approached organisers about the logistics of playing at the WGC event at Dove Mountain in Arizona.

But Carter said: "It remains hard to believe that Woods, who has not appeared in public since crashing his car outside his home, would choose to return at the Match Play.
"He admitted infidelity and apologised to his family for 'transgressions' and has been in hiding ever since."

The top 64 players automatically qualify for the Match Play event and competitors have until 12 February to notify organisers of any withdrawal.
But any comeback by Woods would need extra planning because of the intense media interest in him.

On Thursday, six-time major winner Sir Nick Faldo told the BBC that returning to tournament golf would prove Woods' "saviour".
"I'd have thought he'd be dying to get back, I don't believe he'll give up the opportunity to play in the majors," he said.

Meanwhile, world number two Phil Mickelson urged Woods to come back to the PGA Tour, saying "the game of golf needs him".
US golf legend Jack Nicklaus said Woods would find it harder to break his record of 18 majors if he does not compete this year.
And on Wednesday five-time Open champion Tom Watson urged Woods to "show some humility" when he does finally choose to return.
