LOS ANGELES, CA - FEBRUARY 3:  Attorney Gloria Allred uses a golf golf cut-out to simulate how a club hitting a ball with the face of a woman could leave marks that look like bruises during a press conference with former adult film actress Veronica Siwik-Daniels (aka Joslyn James), who claims to have had a long-term intimate relationship with golf icon Tiger Woods, at the offices of Allred on February 3, 2010 in Los Angeles, California. Allred and Siwik-Daniels are calling for the end of the production of golf balls bearing an image of Siwik in the product series, "Tail of the Tiger - The Mistress Collection". Allred argues that putting the face of a woman on a ball which golfers hit with full force could result in marks on the image that might resemble bruises and may lead to inappropriate jokes about hitting women. James says that she loved Woods and had reason to believe that he loved her. She has been in seclusion and has not talked to the press until now.  (Photo by David McNew/Getty Images)

Troubled Tiger Woods is still on course to visit Ireland this summer for a prestigious charity golf event.

The American has twice previously participated in the JP McManus Invitational Pro-Am in Limerick and it is hoped he will be present again in July.

Actors Samuel L Jackson and Hugh Grant have already committed to attend the two-day event which takes place every five years at Adare Manor Hotel and Golf Resort.

In 2007, Woods committed to McManus that he would come to Adare this year, but doubts about his participation were raised following revelations of extra-marital affairs. However, neither McManus nor Woods have stated that he would not be making an appearance in Limerick this year.

A pro-am spokeswoman said last night: “We have had no update yet. We still don't know — that's where it's been for while.”
