Maybe Woods is looking for some tips on how to grow old and have magnificent hair

Tiger Woods must be stuck for a few bob or else is intent on giving up the golf life totally. The 14-time Major winner has announced details of a new partnership with Donald Trump to design a golf-course in the Middle East.

The golfer is set to open his first course design in Mexico before the end of 2014, and has now revealed his next project will be with the multi-billionaire in Dubai.

The course will be set within the rather oddly titled Akoya Oxygen, a 55-million square foot community and will be managed by ‘The Donald‘  himself.

In a statement on his own website, Woods is quoted as saying ‘I’ve been fortunate to play great golf courses all over the globe, from the original links courses in Scotland to the famous parkland courses in America and the distinctive layouts of the sand-belt of Australia.

‘I hope to bring elements of those great courses and others to the Trump World Golf Club, Dubai with the end result being a course that golfers will want to play again and again.’

Fair enough.

The course will be open by 2017 so if anyone from Trump’s office fancies flying SportsJOE out for the launch then we might be able to clear a space in our diary.

It also has got us thinking what Mr Woods might look like if he was to go to the same barber as Donald.
