Woods yet to rule out Dubai Desert classic

6:06 am on 26 August 2008

Tiger Woods has not ruled himself out of defending his Dubai Desert classic title in late January despite needing time to recover after reconstructive knee surgery.

The American world golf number one decided to have surgery on his left knee for a fourth time after winning the US Open in mid-June, ending his 2008 PGA Tour campaign.

Speaking at the launch of a $1 billion golf project Woods designed in Dubai, the winner of 14 major titles said the injury was "frustrating" but he did not rule himself out from the desert event, which begins on January 27th.
