Australians Talk Money with Tiger

Australian Golf Union executive director Colin Phillips says he is negotiating to bring Tiger Woods to the Australian Open on the Gold Coast in November. Officials have already made an undisclosed money offer, it is reported.

The rumored amount is $3.4 million, though Phillips denied it. He said it probably would cost $1 million to get Woods to consider playing in Australia.
The AGU would need an answer from Woods in July. And because Woods' figure is so high, the other top players have upped their fees also.
If the Aussies fail to land Woods, they will try to secure five of the top 25 players in the world.
