If Donald Trump can do it, then why not Tiger Woods. After many, many, many years of playing at some of the best and worst golf courses around the world, Tiger Woods has finally started construction on his first golf course as an architect in Mexico.
Golf.com reports that ground has been broken at Diamante in Mexico’s Cabo San Lucas. The $12 million course will be known as “El Cardonal” and is scheduled to open in 2014.
“I’ve played in enough pro-ams to know that not every golfer is a scratch player. Creating wide landing areas and avoiding forced carries whenever possible allow all golfers, even beginners to keep the ball in play and have more fun,” Woods’ emailed statement to Golf.com reads.
“I want to be sure that my designs make individuals think their way around the course,” said Woods. “To me, that’s an important part of golf and it’s what I like to do when I play. I think players like risk-reward opportunities and to feel like they’ve been challenged in all aspects of the game.”
Just because Woods is working on this new venture, don’t think that his playing days are over or that he going to take time away from the game. This could just be the medicine that the doctor ordered. Since his divorce scandal, Woods has not been playing at the top of his game; maybe this will help him get his focus back on golf.
