The golfing great had been the sport’s biggest draw before his extracurricular affairs went public.

The sport’s fans were buzzing yesterday that Woods could be planning to play in theMasters in April, but might compete in a warmup tournament earlier.

Woods and the Masters are always ratings hits. Factor in the scandal and ratings could be golden, especially if he’s near the lead on Saturday and Sunday.

"I don’t like to predict ratings, ever, but if that scenario played out, the ratings would be extraordinary," said Sean McManus, president of CBS Sports and CBS News.

"Tiger’s effect on the ratings will be probably greater than it was, just because of the attention that has been generated about him," said McManus.
