Tiger To Play in Thailand for First Time in Ten Years

According to an article on the PGA Tour website today, Tiger Woods has agreed to play in a 1-day skins game in his mother's home country, Thailand.  This will be the first time since 2000 that Woods will play in the country at the Johnnie Walker Classic.

Organizers announced Thursday that Woods will play in the Nov. 8 event, which is part of celebrations to mark King Bhumibol Adulyadej's 60th year on the Thai throne.

It will be staged at the Amata Spring Country Club in Chonburi, a seaside province southeast of Bangkok, and comes the day after the HSBC Champions tournament in Shanghai.

Paul Casey of England, Camilo Villegas of Colombia and Thailand's top player, Thongchai Jaidee, will also compete for total prize money of $300,000.
