Dubai moving ahead with Tiger Woods course

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates - DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — While Tiger Woods' business partners in Dubai won't comment on the golfer's personal woes, they are pushing ahead with plans to build a course bearing his name despite the emirate's cash problems.

The company building "The Tiger Woods Dubai" housing development and golf course said in a statement Wednesday it remains committed to finishing the first course designed by Woods.

The developer, part of the Dubai Holding conglomerate owned by the city-state's ruler, says "progress continues" on the project but gave no specifics.

Woods told The Associated Press in June that the long-delayed project was "out of my hands."

Some of Woods' sponsors are distancing themselves from the golfer over reports of marital infidelity.
