Tiger Woods Coming To Tucson; Unrelated: Local Strip Clubs Hiring For Temporary Positions

Posted By on Tue, Feb 14, 2012 at 3:30 PM

Tiger Woods made it official on Tuesday when he announced on his personal website that he would be playing next week in the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Marana's Dove Mountain enclave.

Woods' presence at the event will likely mean local TV stations and daily newspapers will have to double their staff coverage in order to keep track of every move the world's most famous sex-addicted golfer makes. Whether that includes any forays into the seedier parts of Tucson is unclear.

Woods has played in four of the previous five Match Play events held in Marana, winning it all in 2008. Since then, though, he's one only one of three matches, and missed the 2010 event while, um, marital issues.

No word on whether any of the local gentlemen's clubs will be offering any Tiger-themed specials next week, but considering we'll have both a cadre of pro golfers (and their band of affluent fans) and the rodeo participants in town, it's bound to be a business week for Tucson's sin trade.
