One of the few supporters of Woods has been Dubai. Mohammad Juma Bu Amin, the CEO of Dubai’s golf promoter, Golf in Dubai said in a statement: “We are with you in this difficult time and respect your request for family privacy. As and when you decide to return to the circuit, you can always count on us…. We will be more than delighted to welcome you to Dubai. Consider Dubai your second home.”

Woods has played in the Dubai Desert Classic numerous times, and in 2007, also a signed an agreement with the tournament promoters that he would compete in the event at least three times in the next four years.

“I always enjoy visiting Dubai, it’s an extremely hospitable place where the people and the tournament organizers treat the players so well,” Woods said at the time.

And his love for the city also led him to design a 55 million sq ft golf community project called Tiger Woods Dubai, estimated to cost $1.1 billion. The development will feature a golf course, a golf academy and a luxury boutique hotel. “Dubai has the biggest, greatest and newest of everything, and hopefully we’ll create an experience here with this golf course that people will remember,” Woods said while promoting the project last year.

“The Tiger Woods Dubai does not comment on the personal lives of our valued partners,” Tiger Woods Dubai said this week in response to the recent scandal, adding that it is going ahead with the project.

    I definitely cannot speak for anybody else, but It is my opinion all of the press that this saga is gaining is absurd. Tiger cheated on his wife, not golf. Really the only people he needs to please is going to be his loved ones in addition to sponsors. It is actually obvious why the guy ought to say i’m sorry and then try to make amends with Elin. His sponsors have paid plenty of cash marketing him. In addition to that, this is a personal household concern and he really should be permitted to take care of it behind closed doors. Everyone quite frankly doesn’t have the right to be told every last minimal aspect concerning everybody’s daily life, no matter what their celebrity status.
