Tiger Woods considers dual membership on European Tour
By mustang6560 on 10/12/12
If I didn't know any better, I'd say the European Tour is trying to lure Tiger Woods across the pond. And the crazy thing is, it seems to be working.

Earlier this week, the European Tour announced it will count the Ryder Cup, the Presidents Cup, and the Seve Trophy toward its 13-event minimum for Tiger Woods its members.

The four majors and the four WGC events are co-sanctioned by the European Tour, so they already count toward the minimum. If you throw in a Ryder or Presidents Cup (in alternate years), you're at nine events (don't even act like Tiger wouldn't make either team). And if you consider Tiger started his golf season at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship, he's already at 10 events and he hasn't even started trying yet.

What did Tiger say about the prospect of playing on the European Tour?
I don't know what my numbers are as I know I played 19 in the States this year and whether it crosses over or not but I will again look at it.

"I did play Abu Dhabi but then 13 are certainly a lot more than 11 especially playing full time in the States."
So you're telling me there is a chance?

The fact Tiger didn't rule it out straight away makes me think he's actually entertaining the idea, which would be fantastic for the European Tour. I can see it now — if Tiger does take up dual membership, all of the European Tour ads will feature Tiger's face for years to come.
