Why Tiger Matters In China
By Kickntrue on 11/5/09
I made a comment earlier about Tiger playing in China for a $2M appearance fee. Here's why China still gets the better end of the deal.
Check out this well written story by Dan Washburn for ESPN.com. It's the story of one girl who met Tiger at this China even 9 years ago who is now one of the top young female golfers in the world. It also touches on some of the economic impact Tiger has to the region just for showing up one week a year (Tiger is one of the biggest taxpayers in Shenzhen, China).

Matt Otskey says:
"He will transcend this game ... and bring to the world ... a humanitarianism ... which has never been known before. The world will be a better place to live in ... by virtue of his existence ... and his presence."
Is this a small part, or even the beginning of the fulfillment of Earl Woods' prophecy?
This tournament may be making the "major" networks kick themselves for not trying harder to pick it up. Tiger and Phil in the final group on the final day?
