Golf: Tiger’s 2009 schedule uncertain

Associated Press
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates ó Tiger Woods said he is not sure whether he will be ready to defend his title at the Dubai Desert Classic early next year.
The world’s top-ranked golfer missed the rest of the 2008 season shortly after winning the U.S. Open in June so he could have reconstructive surgery on his left knee to repair a torn ligament.
“It’s frustrating for me,” he said Monday of the injury at an event to promote a golf course he helped design in the Persian Gulf city.
Woods said his schedule heading into next year is uncertain, but that he plans to “be hitting golf balls at the beginning of the year.”
TIGER’S COURSE
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates ó Tiger Woods is already the world’s top-ranked golfer and highest paid athlete. And if all goes according to plan, he’ll soon be sporting his biggest trophy yet: a luxury golf course hewn from the sands of the Arabian desert.
The ambitious project, touted as the first course in the world designed by the 2008 U.S. Open champion, remains a work in progress.
Among other unlikely features promises 5 million square feet of locally grown grass and more than 30,000 full-grown imported trees. It is on target for completion sometime in the last three months of 2009. Cost: $1.09 billion.
