Tiger Woods to join European Tour?

With the expected announcement from the European Tour that the Ryder Cup, Presidents Cup and Seve Trophy will henceforth count towards the 13 events needed to play in events run by the continental organization, they may have nabbed a pretty big fish.

Or rather, a Tiger.

The 14-time major winner Tiger Woods last considered joining the Tour across the Atlantic from his homeland in 2000 when the required number of events to qualify was eleven. 

But with these changes for membership, there's a very real possibility that the player who is still undeniably the biggest draw in the game could cross-over.

"I knew I would have to play one of two more events back then when it was 11 but now that criteria is 13," he said during a World Golf event in Turkey.

"I don't know what my numbers are as I know I played 19 in the States this year and whether it crosses over or not but I will again look at it.

"I did play Abu Dhabi but then 13 are certainly a lot more than 11, especially playing full-time in the States."

Woods is already committed to the four majors, four World Golf Championship events, appearances in the middle east, Presidents Cup and the Ryder Cup, these tournaments would mean the 36-year-old is only between two to three events short of the thirteen speculated to be required in the upcoming announcement.
