The PGA Tour's 2010 season has kicked off with the first event in Hawai without Tiger Woods(golf clubs)."At the moment, he's hiding, which I don't think is the right way to go about it. I think we need to see him come out here and apologise," says golfer(taylormade r9 driver) Retief Goosen. "I think there is an opportunity for a handful of guys who have aspirations to be Number One. This might be a time when it's a lot more possible than it has been before," says golfer(ping g15 driver) Geoff Ogilvy. Woods' absence from the second half of the 2008 season due to his injury had led to a 46 per cent decline in golf viewership(titleist ap2 irons) as compared to 2007. But going by the response from some of the senior players on the tour, it is clear that Woods(Ping G10 Irons) is not being missed.Golfer Jerry Kelly says, "He is not the sport. Golf will move on. When Tiger Woods(Ping Rapture V2 Irons) retires, no matter if it's tomorrow or if it's 10 years or 20 years from now, the game of golf will have it's stars. The game of golf(TaylorMade R7 CGB MAX Fairway Wood) will survive."Though, he isn't likely to make a hasty comeback to save his throne, whenever he comes back, it clearly promises to be one of the sports stories of the year.
