The business of being Tiger

Tiger Woods missed a cut but it's Dallas businesses who might be heartbroken. Attendance at this year's Byron Nelson Tournament was down 25,000 (according to today's Dallas Morning News print edition). The biggest drop came on Saturday when Dallasites stepped out of their Mystic Tan booths only to realize Tiger wouldn't be playing. Why go?

Shirts to promote, TV ratings to pump up, Pavilion margaritas to sell -- Tiger has a lot to do. When will he ever find the time to catch this guy?
