"I just want to play some golf"........

Woods to play at N.C. PGA event

ORLANDO, Fla., April 15 (UPI) -- Tiger Woods, who just ended a lengthy hiatus from competitive golf, said Thursday he would play in a PGA event in North Carolina and in the U.S. Open.
Woods has committed to playing in the April 29-May 2 Quail Hollow Championship in Charlotte, N.C., and the U.S. Open, the year's second major tournament, in mid-June at Pebble Beach, Calif.
"I'm excited about competing," Woods said on his Web site about Quail Hollow. "It's a wonderful venue and they always have a great field."
As to the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, Woods set a record with a 15-stroke victory in 2000, the last time the tournament was as Pebble Beach.
"It's always been one of my favorite courses," said Woods. "I can't wait to go back."
Woods returned to golf last week, finishing tied for a fourth at the Masters. That appearance ended a months-long layoff self-imposed after a series of extramarital affairs became public.

Is there anything else....we might learn.....from Milledgeville, Georgia?

Cop in Roethlisberger Case -- I Quit

The cop who first investigated Ben Roethlisberger for sexual assault has "resigned" in the wake of the release of a police report that shows he may have referred to the accuser as a "f*cking bitch" ... but TMZ has learned the cop didn't really have a choice.


We're told the Milledgeville Police officer -- Sergeant Jerry Blash -- turned in his resignation yesterday. He had been with the force for 8 years.

In the report, investigators claim that on the night of the alleged incident, Blash admitted that after he encountered the accuser, he may have made a comment similar to "this f*cking bitch is drunk" or "this bitch is drunk off her ass accusing Ben of assaulting her."

Investigators also report that on the night of the incident, Blash informed the accuser and her friends that "Roethlisberger has a lot of money" and if the women were to follow through with a police report, they "would be wasting their time."

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Blash was given a lose-lose option -- resign...or be fired.

FYI -- Blash is the same guy who posed for photos with Ben hours before he was approached by the alleged victim outside the Capital City nightclub in Georgia. 

Yes.....there is...

Big Ben's Accuser -- The Bodyguard Set Me Up

Ben Roethlisberger's accuser told police the QB's bodyguard grabbed her by the arm and sat her in a secluded hallway in the Capital City nightclub -- setting the stage for the alleged rape


The Milledgeville Police Department released a copy of the accuser's written statement to cops on March 5 -- in which she told police that Ben had been making "crude sexual remarks" to her in the hours before the alleged incident.

In her written statement, the accuser said she and some of her friends had been bar-hopping with Ben and his crew before they ended up at Ben's VIP area at Capital City nightclub.

The accuser says when she arrived to the VIP area, Ben's bodyguard grabbed her by the arm and brought her to a "side door/hallway and sat me on a stool."

The accuser continues,  "[the bodyguard] left and Ben came back with his penis out of his pants. I told him it wasn't OK."

The accuser claims she tried to leave through a nearby door, which turned out to be a restroom. The woman claims she continued to tell Ben that "It was not OK," but he had sex with her anyway.

The woman told cops Ben "then left without saying anything."
