Tiger: The roar and the uproar
By Sam Boykin The eighth annual Quail Hollow Championship promises to be like none other. Charlotte’s premier golfing tournament is coming off a bit of rough patch. It’s usually an automatic — and early — sellout, but ticket sales were sluggish last year thanks to the recession, and its title sponsor, Wells Fargo, dropped the Wachovia name from the tournament. But this year ticket sales have been brisk — Quail Hollow expects to sell out by this weekend — and there’s a buzz in the air as excited fans and media outlets eagerly await the start of the practice rounds on Monday. Fueling the fervor, of course, is Tiger Woods, who announced only last week on his Web site that he was making Quail Hollow his first tournament since his dramatic return to golf at the Masters.
