New York, Jan 9(ANI): Scandal-hit golfing superstar Tiger Woods' former coach Butch Harmon has said that he expects the World No.1 to return to play in the US open and The Open at St Andrews this summer.
Woods, who is taking an indefinite break from the sport, has been in hiding since the revelations about his marital infidelity surfaced last month.
Harmon, who coached Woods for 10 years until 2002, said: "Those who say he will never play again are crazy."
"I think he will play this year. The reason I say that is two of the Major venues this year - the US Open at Pebble Beach and The Open at St Andrews - are two of his favourite places," The Sun quoted Harmon, as saying.
Harmon further said that the revelations about Woods' private life have come as a complete surprise to him.
"This Tiger Woods I'm reading about, I don't know who this guy is. Obviously he has led two lives - one in public and one we didn't know about which was quite strange. I think all of us were a little shocked about that. We don't know where Tiger is right now or what he is doing. I just know we miss him," he added. (ANI)
