DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – While Tiger Woods’ business partners in Dubai won’t comment on the golfer’s personal woes, they are pushing ahead with plans to build a course bearing his name despite the emirate’s cash problems.
The company building “The Tiger Woods Dubai” housing development and golf course said in a statement Wednesday it remains committed to finishing the first course designed by Woods.
The developer, part of the Dubai Holding conglomerate owned by the city-state’s ruler, says “progress continues” on the project but gave no specifics.
Woods told The Associated Press in June that the long-delayed project was “out of my hands.”
Some of Woods’ sponsors are distancing themselves from the golfer over reports of marital infidelity.
