Wow, CCTV has some real influence. After it declared Tiger Woods Chinese earlier this week, the golfer announced that he plans to play in China’s HSBC Champions tournament in Sheshan this November, according to ESPN. He has not played overseas since 2007. We’re glad to hear Tiger’s making a trip to China, but hope that golf fans here won’t be disappointed that he can’t speak Chinese and is not into using cremes to lighten his skin.
Watch the tournament’s Web site for news about tickets.
