Tiger is returning (again) at the Memorial

Well. If I haven't said it before, Tiger Woods is back. This time, of course, he will return to professional golf after a neck injury rather than knee or marital troubles.

In early May, Woods dropped mid-tournament from the Players Championship. Now, it appears that Tiger is poised to make his return at the Memorial next week - Jack Nicklaus's signature tournament.

Of course, his last two appearances on the PGA Tour have resulted in disappointment. A missed cut and a neck injury didn't help to sustain his early momentum from a solid performance at the Masters this year.

That said, Tiger will roll into Ohio to defend his title at the Memorial last year. Success at this tournament could set the stage for a return to golf's elite with a win at the U.S. Open in June. If Tiger again struggles, his 2010 could look even more bleak.

Meanwhile, Phil Mickelson could grab the top spot in the World Golf Rankings with a win this weekend at the Colonial. For Tiger to retain his position at the head of the golf world, a comeback tour is absolutely crucial.
