When the news first broke 10 days ago that Tiger Woods was considering playing in last week’s Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, I instantly decided I was going to the event.

Since I first saw Woods at the 1997 Masters, he has been my favorite player. I’ve had the chance to follow his group on a few occasions since then — the 2011 and ’12 PGA Championships at Atlanta Athletic Club and The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island, respectively, and this Sunday at the Wyndham.
