The Business of Tiger's Return

Tiger Woods is back on the greens this week. Back on the golf course. Back in the game. 

And not just any bit of the game, but the Masters, in Augusta, Georgia. 

The super-human golfer with the all-too-human trail of mistresses and out-there sexcapades – rampant infidelity, the tabloids crowed – is back on his turf. Wrapped in fairways and fans. 

So what did that all mean? 

This Hour, On Point: we’ll look at the blow-up, the meltdown, the comeback of Tiger Woods – the man, the business, the icon, the golfer.

Guests:

Cameron Morfit, senior writer for Golf Magazine and Golf.com. He was at the press conference with Tiger Woods yesterday. This is his 15th year covering the Masters. Read his story “History Will Tell Whether Woods Is Hero Or Villain—But This Week It’s About The Golf.”
