Tiger Woods is set to finalise the purchase of an island off the northwest coast of Ireland following the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open this July.

Woods will visit Ireland between July 1st and 10th to conclude his Open Championship preparation and to be present for the completion of legal documentation pertaining to his purchase of Inishtrahull Island off the Donegal coast.

Agents for Woods have been in the process of negotiating the purchase of the mile long island off the coast of Malin Head from the National Parks and Wildlife Service and the Commissioners of Irish Lights for the past year.  It is believed the complicated paperwork completing the sale will be ready in early July.

According to reports Woods has visited the area up to a dozen times to work on the deal, and his game, over the past year and is said to have become very friendly with members at Ballyliffin Golf Course.

"Tiger's been here at the course about ten times that I know of," one Ballyliffin member who asked not to be named told reporters. "He's been here three times in the last month. He arrives in the helicopter at first light and he goes out on the course practicing until evening. Fine block of a man. Jesus he'll take money off any of us willing to lose it to him out on the course! Then he'd go into the clubhouse for a soup and sandwich and away off back to Malin Head where he stays. I think he's due back here again tomorrow but you couldn't set your clock by him."

More as it emerges.
