R&A expect Tiger to play in Open

Organisers of the Open are confident that Tiger will be playing at the golf Tournament this year.

The golfing event to be held at St Andrews, Scotland in July is extra special this year as it celebrates its 150 anniversary

Royal and Ancient chief executive Peter Dawson said “Entries close on May 27 and in a normal year he would not have entered yet

I am absolutely certain he will be with us.”

If Tiger does play and wins he will become the first golfer to win three times at the famous course.

The organisers have however said that if Tiger does attend he will not receive any special treatment in light of the recent revelations about his personnel life and then break from the game of golf for 5 months

"We don’t live in a police state and people are allowed to say what they like. We will only have something to say if players are being put off."

The 150th Anniversary of the famous golf championship is going to be celebrated by a four whole Champions Challenge to be played on the eve of the Open Golf Championship. Thirty two previous winners of the tournament have been invited to play.
