Tiger Woods is expected to return to professional golf by the time the Masters opens on April 8. His timeline could look something like this:
When » March 22-23
Where » Isleworth Golf & Country Club, Windermere, Fla.
Storyline » An ideal "low-key" return for Woods would be at Tavistock, which is held in his backyard. Limited media availability and a national TV audience.
Arnold Palmer Invitational
When » March 25-28
Where » Bay Hill Club & Lodge, Orlando, Fla.
Storyline » Expect a media crush for this one. Woods, however, won't want to miss the Palmer if he can help it. He's won this event six times in his career.
When » April 8-11
Where » Augusta National Golf Course, Augusta, Ga.
Storyline » Woods always takes a week off after Bay Hill, leaving him rested and ready for the Masters, which he has never missed since turning pro.
