Tiger Woods is on the brink. According to Foxnews.com he is terrified that his wife is going to divorce him and a possible 14th women has now come forward claiming an affair. To boot, his doctor is being charged by Canadian authorities with selling an unapproved performance enhancing drug know as Actovegin – there is no evidence the drug was given to Tiger.
Regardless of the turmoil, Tiger Woods’ business partners in Dubai have said they are moving ahead with plans to build “The Tiger Woods Dubai” housing development, hotel and golf course. The developer, part of the Dubai Holding conglomerate owned by the city-state’s rulers, says “progress continues” on the project.
According to the Associated Press, “The company had promised to open the first phase of the project — including the 18-hole, par 72 course itself — by the end of this year, but that timeframe has since been pushed back. The more than $1 billion course in the desert outside Dubai is supposed to boast 5 million square feet of locally grown grass and over 30,000 full-grown imported trees. Developers promised the links would be ringed by 100 villas, 75 mansions, 22 palaces and a 360,000-square-foot boutique hotel, as well as a clubhouse and golf academy. When it all gets built remains up in the air.”
