altDreams are coming true for golf fans in Latin America, as Tiger Woods and Matt Kuchar have confirmed their participation in the second edition of Bridgestone America’s Golf Cup (BAGC). The event, one of the most important in the region, will be played in Mexico from Oct. 21-25, at a venue to be confirmed.

The expectations in Latin America for these two star players are great. Woods, who is back playing on the PGA TOUR, returns to Mexico after Tiger Woods Design opened El Cardonal at Diamante in Cabo San Lucas.

Kuchar, currently 10th in the Official Golf World Ranking, has finished tied for second and third in his past two PGA TOUR appearances.

SCOTTSDALE, Arizona (Doug Ferguson/AP) — Tiger Woods returned to the Phoenix Open and received cheers, boos and gasps.

All on one hole.

There is rarely a dull moment with golf’s biggest star, especially at the PGA Tour’s rowdiest venue. Even though Woods has played at TPC Scottsdale only three times, what defines his experience at the Phoenix Open is not a trophy, rather it’s some beer, a boulder, an orange and a gun.

But now, instead of flags, there’s three tiers of luxury boxes, housing even more full-throated fans who’ve been waiting to give Woods the Bronx Cheer.

SCOTTSDALE, Arizona (AP) — Tiger Woods was all smiles — and with a full set of teeth.

Woods gave a play-by-play account of how his front tooth was knocked out in Italy on Jan. 19 while celebrating girlfriend Lindsey Vonn's record 63rd World Cup victory. He said one tooth was chipped and the other was cracked. Both were replaced before he arrived to start his season at the Phoenix Open.
