Tiger coming to final Buick party


In an ultimate good news/bad news scenario, Buick Open officials announced earlier this week that Tiger Woods would play next week’s event only to find out it will likely be the last time the tournament is played.

Golfweek magazine reported on its Web site that financially-embattled Buick intends to pull out of the event and the Tour planned to announce a new sponsor and venue following next week’s event.

Only in the current economic climate can the world No. 1’s presence be followed by such grim news.
