By DANIEL FERGUSONThe new Tiger Woods and Tiger Woods World Tour is officially on its way.
The four-day, three-week trip began Thursday and will take in a dozen new golf courses, a golf club, a bowling alley and a restaurant.
The tour’s tour director is Chris Pappas, who was the head of the World Golf Tour’s governing body in 2013.
The tour is not expected to be open for business on Friday, though there’s a tentative start to the week.
Tickets will go on sale Saturday, though the exact dates and times have not been set.
Tickets start at $1,500 per person, with a limited number of reserved seats available for a limited time.
The cost will increase to $2,000 per person with a special VIP ticket that includes access to the restaurant and the golf course.
The tours debut at a time when golf’s popularity is at an all-time high.
Golfers will take to the links in large numbers next month as the United States celebrates the 150th anniversary of the opening of the first golf course in the U.S. The course at New York’s Yankee Stadium will be one of the last remaining in the country.
Golf is a popular sport for American athletes, with many athletes, including golfers, taking part in the Olympic Games.
It also has been a lucrative sport for many golfers who have become multimillionaires in recent years.
Golf’s popularity has grown even as the sport has suffered from a downturn in attendance.
Last year, only 5.4 million people played golf in the United Kingdom, according to figures released by the PGA of America, the tour’s governing group.
The United States, which has the largest golf population in the world, was the only country that didn’t have a tour that took in more than 20 million.
The U.K. Tour, which took in 21 million visitors last year, is the tour that will take the tour to a new level.
“It’s exciting to be a part of something that has a proven track record and has such a loyal following,” Pappis said in a statement.
“With our new sponsorship with PGA Tour, we’re thrilled to join the growing global audience of golf fans, and look forward to bringing this tour to new places and new players.”
