Anthony W. Deering has been the chairman of Exeter Capital, LLC, a private investment firm, since 2004. Prior to that, Anthony W. Deering worked for The Rouse Company for more than 30 years, where he served as CEO from 1997-2004. He enjoys golfing in his leisure.

One of the greatest players in the history of golf, Tiger Woods, hasn’t won a tournament since 2013 and has only had one top 10 finish in the last 18 tournaments he played in over the past two years. Through tournament winnings alone, Woods was making upwards of $10 million a season in his prime, but made just over $500,000 combined in 2014 and 2015. Back injuries and multiple surgeries have hampered Woods’ game to the point where he is no longer considered a threat on the PGA Tour.

However, the 40-year-old plans to return to action in December at the Hero World Challenge, a tournament which was created as a benefit for the Tiger Woods Foundation. He was previously scheduled to return at the Safeway Open in October, but needed more time to improve his game.
