The entry deadline for the Buick Invitational came and went Friday and, despite tournament director Tom Wilson's best efforts, Tiger Woods' name was not on it. Indications from within the Woods' camp suggest the world No. 1 is back to something approaching a full workout routine, but his much-anticipated return will have to wait. Next month's WGC-Match Play Championship in Tucson, Ariz., has been reported as a possible return while many consider the Arnold Palmer Invitational or WGC-CA Championship at Doral likely openers. Some good news for Wilson. Rocco Mediate, David to Woods' Torrey Pines U.S. Open Goliath, is in next week's field. The Buick also marks the beginning of the Woods 2009 countdown.
