  • TIGER TIRED OF GETTING TRAPPED BY NCAA REGULATIONS

         If Tiger Woods decides to leave Stanford early and join the
    PGA Tour, columnist Mark Soltau writes, "it will be the NCAA, not
    school, that drives him away."  Two weeks ago, Woods went to
    dinner with Arnold Palmer for a chance to "learn knowledge from
    the legend," according to Woods' mother, Kultida Woods.
    Unfortunately, Palmer picked up the check -- a NCAA rules
    violation.  The NCAA originally ruled Woods ineligible, but later
    agreed to restore eligibility if he paid Palmer back the $25.
    Kultida Woods called it "harassment."  One agent predicts Woods'
    worth as a pro at somewhere between $10-12M (S.F. EXAMINER,
    10/22).  Woods,  asked if the incident might change his plans not
    to turn pro until he graduates:  "I don't think it would, but you
    never know.  It's annoying" (Pat Sullivan, S.F. CHRONICLE,
    10/22).
