Under fire Tiger Woods has not turned his back on next July's JP McManus Invitational Pro-Am.

The world No 1 is still set to touch down at Adare Manor in Limerick from July 5-6 despite being surrounded by a storm of controversy since his Florida car accident 12 days ago.

A spokesperson for the two-day charity pro-am said: "As far as we know, Tiger is still coming. We've heard nothing to the contrary."

Woods is close friends with Limerick racing legend McManus and business tycoon Dermot Desmond.

The world No 1 married his wife Elin Nordegren at the exclusive Sandy Lane Resort, owned by McManus and Desmond, in 2004.

Announcing his plans for the charity extravaganza last year, McManus said: “When Tiger was asked, there was no looking at his diary, in fairness. He said, ‘Listen, I’ll be there.’

“He doesn’t say very much, but he just said, ‘If you need me I’ll be there.’ We’ve had little communication since but I know like all the pros, if they commit themselves, they’ll be there.”
