Why oh, why has Tiger Woods chosen this Friday to break his long silence, since November, to make a public announcement? Indeed why has he chosen a Friday at all?
Thursday through to Sunday are the competition days in a golfer's life, Woods may have forgotten this is his short absence from the game, or maybe not. As Ernie Els has said:
"It's selfish. This takes a lot away from the tournament.
"I feel sorry for the sponsor. Mondays are a good day to make statements, not Friday."
Just who is the sponsor of this week's match play event in Arizona? Well it is Accenture who until last November were a sponsor of one T. Woods of Orlando, Florida.
Brit Oliver Wilson joins the condemnation of Woods' timing:
"It just seems very poor from everyone involved to have it organised. You have a brilliant event here and the sponsors are owed more to that.
"And for the Tour to be setting up on their own headquarters, I don't think it's very good."
Sergio Garcia who is also taking part in Arizona added:
"The timing of it is not the best, but he has to do what's best for him, I guess."
So I guess all the world's a stage but the spotlight will be on US PGA Tour at the Sawgrass Clubhouse in Ponte Vedra, Florida and not at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship in Arizona.
