TIGER TIRED OF GETTING TRAPPED BY NCAA REGULATIONS
Published October 23, 1995
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).
