Tiger to return at Match Play Championships

An Australian newspaper reports that Tiger Woods could be out of sex rehab and back on the links in less than two weeks.

The Herald Sun of Melbourne says Woods is "poised to make a shock return to competitive golf" at the Accenture Match Play Championship, which begins Feb. 17 in Arizona.

The PGA Tour would not confirm the Herald Sun story.

"We have no comment," said Tour spokesman Ty Votaw.

Woods has not competed in a golf tournament since the sex scandal that made international headlines in November. He has won the Accenture tournament three times, with his most recent victory in 2008.
