Tiger Woods-Branded Luxury Golf Development in Dubai HaltedConstruction of Tiger Woods Dubai, a high-end residential complex that was to be built around a championship-caliber golf course, has been halted because of poor market conditions in the Middle Eastern emirate, Bloomberg News reported, citing developer Dubai Properties.

The developer, which will maintain a commercial agreement with the golfer, suspended construction of the 55 million square-foot project because of lack of demand, the wire service said. Tiger Woods Dubai was planned to include almost 300 residential plots for luxury homes, USA Today said. So far, only the irrigation system and six holes of the course have been constructed.

Construction in Dubai of resort properties, commercial buildings and other developments has slowed markedly from the boom pace it enjoyed prior to the global financial crisis.

Woods, formerly the world's top-ranked golfer, has lost sponsorship agreements with companies such as AT&T and Procter & Gamble since admitting to extramarital affairs, which led to his divorce last year, Bloomberg said. Woods hasn't won a major title since 2008.

I really wish Tiger would go back to the original swing. He is obsessed with changing his swing and watching him at "his" course, Torrey, was heart breaking. He did have a moment or two of "Tiger greatness" but it wasn't enough. He is basically "flailing around" the course. He almost looks like the 10:00 AM tee time on one of the million "muni's" in the US. I am still rooting for him...but he needs to get back into it and start kicking butt.

Dearest Tiger: please help bring about abundance for all by using your influence to diffuse the stranglehold on technologies such as free energy(at zero energy level that have been suppressed over the last 100 years by the richest hundred to 200 men involved in the good ol boys network keeping us dependent on it for their profit). People such as you need to step up and get involved even if it involves endangering yourself because the whole earth and all its life are at risk and time is virtually near running out. To all: go to the orion project.com and the disclosure project.com
