Woods lured to play in Australia

TIGER Woods will make his first appearance Down Under in over a decade after the world No. 1 agreed to play at the Australian Masters.

Woods has not played in Australia since the 1998 Presidents Cup but has signed on to play the Australian Masters at Kingston Heath in Melbourne from November 12-15. Reports said that the American would be paid an appearance fee of US$3 million. Officials said his fee would be money well spent. Stuart Appleby, one of Australia's leading players, said Woods would have a positive influence on the local circuit. "It will be great for the game and bring out a lot of people who haven't seen him before - in person, not on a video game," Appleby said yesterday.
