Tiger Woods to play Australian Masters in November

USA TODAY: MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Tiger Woods will play at the Australian Masters Nov. 12-15, his first tournament appearance Down Under since 1998.

"It will be great for the game and bring out a lot of people who haven't seen him before — in person, not on a video game," Appleby told The Associated Press. "There's a lot of people hurting in Australia, and they might look negatively that one guy is paid ($4.54 million) just to turn up. The common man won't understand the business model because the government is paying for it. They might not see the money he brings in."

Brumby predicted the visit by the world's top golfer would earn Victoria state $19 million in economic benefits, which would offset Woods' $4.54 million appearance fee.
