The 2020-21 PGA Tour season has almost come to a conclusion. There is just one event that stands in between – the Tour Championship. The Top 30 players in the world have gathered at East Lake Golf Club for the ultimate event of the season, and Tiger Woods has a message for all of them.
No, Tiger Woods is not participating in the 2021 Tour Championship. Woods is currently recovering from the single-car crash he suffered late in February this year. The accident left him with multiple injuries, severely affecting his leg.
It is unsure when Woods will be back to playing golf again. He admitted that the rehab process is something he’s never experienced before. Right after he released this statement, die-hard fans of Woods understood the excruciating amount of pain he’s enduring as a result of the accident.
Tiger Woods posts a tweet after a month’s gap
While Tiger Woods has a Twitter handle, the golf legend has not been actively posting over the last few months. There have been a few sporadic posts here and there, and golf fans have been eagerly waiting for him to get back to competing once again.
However, Woods will be out for a few more months due to the magnitude of the injuries. But that doesn’t stop him from watching golf or supporting his colleagues during tournaments. As the Tour Championship is set to begin on September 2, Woods posted a tweet reminiscing his memories at the event.
Good luck to everyone this week at the @playofffinale. Lots of good memories at East Lake! pic.twitter.com/dFcSg1dbl2

Woods of course has a lot of memories at the Tour Championship. He is a three-time winner of the event, twice after it was included in the FedExCup playoffs. Woods last won the Tour Championship in 2018 by two strokes and finished with a score of -11 for the tournament.
Golf fans react to Woods’ tweet
A lot of golf fans were thrilled to see Tiger Woods posting a tweet amid his recovery. As mentioned above, he has not been active on social media but has been trying to keep everyone posted.
Hence, when Woods made a tweet about the Tour Championship, fans thronged in the comments section to express their feelings. You guessed it right! Most of it was aimed at his return to the sport:

Kate Middleton’s anger at Prince William over his lifestyle: ‘Making me look bad’
KATE MIDDLETON was left furious with Prince William after he was pictured dancing on a podium alongside another woman just days after another encounter in a nightclub.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have announced Kate will host a charity Christmas carol service at Westminster Abbey next week. Taking place on December 8, the event will be televised in the lead up to Christmas. Kate and William’s increasingly integral role within the Royal Family has also shown the strength of their relationship. Earlier this year, the Cambridges celebrated 10 years of marriage. They didn’t reach the milestone without challenging moments, however, as highlighted by a 2007 report.
It claimed that William had been seen dancing on a podium in Bournemouth, attracting the attention of another woman.
This came just days after newspaper reports claimed William was seen sharing an embrace with a woman while on a “boys’ night out” in Boujis, London.
The newspaper quoted a friend of Kate’s who said the Duchess sent a warning to William.
The friend said: “Kate told William that he was making her look bad.
“She has coped for years with girls flinging themselves at her boyfriend and, for a while, she found it humorous and even flattering.
“But after his recent behaviour she gave him an ultimatum and told him that every time he behaved like that in public he was cheapening her image as well as his own.

“She told him she wasn’t prepared to be treated like a doormat and that his carefree behaviour was affecting her image.
“She gave him quite a pasting. In the past, she had always let go of things like that, but this really bothered her.”
A family friend of Kate’s added: “Kate rose above all the rumours and just laughed them off, but something recently snapped in her.
“She was irritated when she read about his flirting in Bournemouth and she wasn’t best pleased to hear about the blonde he ended up with on the dance floor at Boujis.”
Kate and William endured a tough year in 2007 when they briefly split.
Reports from April 2007 also claim that William broke up with Kate via a phone call that she received while at work.
Naughty Boy’s unfortunate Meghan Markle error: ‘This is the future’
NAUGHTY BOY made a bold prediction about Meghan Markle’s place in the Royal Family, which sadly turned out to be far from the truth.
Naughty Boy, the music producer who is best known for hits such as Runnin’ and La La La, is already getting stuck into bushtucker trials as he stars in I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! He has also clashed with fellow campmate Kadeena Cox over cooking duties as the show begins in dramatic fashion. Naughty boy, whose real name is Shahid Khan, is used to keeping company with big stars, including members of the Royal Family. In February 2018, Naughty Boy performed for royalty as Prince Charles and Camilla hosted a gala dinner for the British Asian Trust.
He admitted he was “petrified” ahead of a performance for the royal couple at Buckingham Palace.
Naughty Boy said: “I was really petrified initially because there’s so much powerful energy here, but it felt right that I should be doing this.”
The DJ said: “I think this is part of the future. The whole culture is shifting to accepting just everything. For the Royal Family to spearhead that ‒ I think that’s amazing.”
Meghan’s life in the Royal Family was far from idyllic, however, as two years of regular criticism and tensions within the family culminated in the Sussexes leaving royal duties behind in 2020.
Meghan and Prince Harry later spoke about their life in the Royal Family with Oprah Winfrey.
Will Andy Murray retire from tennis?
After producing a 6-3, 4-6, 4-6, 6-4, 6-2 comeback against Oscar Otte on Wednesday, a match played under the centre court lights with a sense of nostalgia, Andy Murray then bowed out of Wimbledon with a 6-4, 6-2, 6-2 defeat to Denis Shapovalov on Friday.
That loss once again raised the matter of his retirement. Murray almost retired once, but fought back from undergoing surgeries in 2018 and in 2019, operations that mean he now plays with a metal hip
t had seemed that the Scot was set to retire in 2019, so much so that a farewell video was prepared with messages from tennis legends and the other members of what had been ‘The Big Four’. That came as a shock to the three-time Grand Slam champion as he had never officially stated he’d hang up his racket. But, it did appear that the end was near.
His return at Wimbledon 2021
Murray was able to fight back from his injury nightmare, playing well in doubles and even winning another ATP men’s singles title at the 2019 European Open, his first since March of 2017.
Through a wildcard, he was able to enter Wimbledon in 2021 and spoke ahead of the tournament about how excited he was.
“A few years ago, I thought I wasn’t going to be able to play there ever again,” he told GQ.
“So, even though the last 18 months have been difficult from a tennis perspective, I’ve still been able to play a little bit.
“Unfortunately, I haven’t been at the level that I want as consistently as I wanted to, because of the injuries, but then again before the hip operation I also had come to terms with the fact that I might never play tennis again. So it’s been hard.
“But I’m still excited to be out there and getting the chance to compete in events such as Wimbledon.”
Murray hints at retirement
After bowing out of Wimbledon in the third round, though, Murray was more pessimistic when asked about his future.
“There is a part of me that feels a bit like I have put in so much work the last three months and, you know, ultimately I didn’t play how I would want and expect,” he said after his loss to Shapovalov.
“So, it’s like, is it worth it?”
