Everyone on this planet knows the Tiger Woods story…
Four months after an auto accident and reports of extramarital affairs put his golf career on hold, 34-year-old Tiger Woods announced today that he plans to return to golf at the Masters Tournament in April.  He dropped out of professional competition in December after a Thanksgiving weekend wreck outside his Florida home turned a harsh spotlight on his personal life.  In March, Woods issued a public apology for cheating on his wife [with a stable full of women] and said he was undergoing treatment for unspecified "issues."  He said he’s coming back to play in the Masters, which he has won four times since 1997.  He stated, "After a long and necessary time away from the game, I feel like I’m ready to start my season at Augusta."
Well, he may be starting his golf season in Augusta in April, but he’s also starting the 14th season of South Park on the Comedy Channel Wednesday, March 17th at 10 PM ET…
South Park’s Stan, Kenny, Kyle and Cartman will get some much-needed golf lessons when Tiger Woods comes to their animated Colorado town.  I wonder if he’ll bump into Cartman’s mom, the town "trollop" (to use a less offensive term).  Well, they do have a lot in common.
If South Park’s 14th season opener about Tiger Woods is even half as funny as the episode they did on Scientology and Tom Cruise in "Trapped In The Closet", it’ll be hysterical.  Never saw the "Tom Cruise episode" that was so controversial, Cruise tried (unsuccessfully) to have it removed?  Well, here it is.  You probably won’t see the full episode in too many places online as a lot of the streams have been removed.  Watch it here while it’s still available…
The Tiger Woods episode airs Wednesday, March  17th at 10 PM on the Comedy Channel (Check your local listings) so set your DVRs.  Here’s a sneak peek…

NEW YORK (AP) — Golf clubs in hands or not, the kids of "South Park" are ready to take on Tiger Woods.

Creators of the Comedy Central cartoon have long since proven that no subject is sacred to them. So for the opening of its 14th season on Wednesday, the troubled golfer encounters Stan, Kyle, Kenny and Cartman in their animated Colorado town.

"It’s such an important issue in America right now — the sex addiction outbreak," Matt Stone, who makes the series with partner Trey Parker, said on Friday. "We’re all really concerned about him and hope he gets better."

Sex addiction, the intersection of powerful men and willing women, late-night phone calls to the police and bad public relations gave them so much fodder they could have made an entire Tiger-centric season, Stone said.

Since the Peabody Award-winning show’s first episode in 1997, Parker and Stone haven’t worried about lines between good taste and bad if they can get a laugh. They mocked the Church of Scientology to the point of annoying Tom Cruise, and depicted Jesus Christ defecating on President Bush and the American flag.

"There’s a delicacy in talking about (Woods) that we don’t have to worry about," Stone said.

He wouldn’t give many details about the episode, in part because he and Parker were still writing it on Friday. Stone said he was fascinated and disgusted by Woods’ public apology, so it’s likely that will be worked in.

"South Park" is airing its 200th episode next month.

"We can’t even believe we’re still here doing this," he said.
