"Most people, most news media outlets are asking about logistics of having Tiger come to town," he went on. "It makes for an interesting story, and I share with them we plan this every year and this year will be no different. It will run smoothly."

The mayor adds that the city is ready to accommodate all the extra people that might be in town. He just asks that everyone is respectful. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
