Tiger Woods will be back on the golf course by March, his former coach says, adding that he’s been “shocked” by the infidelity storm surrounding the world’s top player. “If you want to put a timetable on it,” Butch Harmon tells the Guardian. “I’d say you may see him in Florida before the Masters.” With the Masters in early April, Woods has often played two March events to prepare.

Also, “Pebble Beach and St. Andrews are two of his favorite places, so I think he will come back and play there,” Harmon says of the sites of this year’s US and British Opens. As far as the seamy side of things: “This Tiger Woods I’m reading about, I don't know who this guy is,” Harmon says. “Obviously he has led two lives—one in public and one we didn’t know about which was quite strange.”
