Ten years ago, the Tiger Woods Invitational was conducted for the first time. The event has come a long way, and all proceeds from the tournament go into helping the youth via various programs. Overall, the event is a perfect blend of golf and entertainment, something which many people look forward to in a year.
It goes without saying that Woods himself is a big part of the event.
However, his unfortunate car crash earlier this year has him sidelined for months. Still recovering, Woods has hardly been spotted in public.
Will Woods be attending the Tiger Woods Invitational?
Yet to recover, Woods will not be present at his own invitational tournament. Though various reports hint at Woods slowly working his way to a comeback, there is a long way to go. We recently saw the legendary player without his crutches, giving the people hope of his swift return. As weeks pass by, every fan and golfer seems to miss his presence on the course.

While Woods seemed to miss the invitational, Max Homa and Bryson DeChambeau attended. Homa was seen having some fun on the course, images were shared by TGR Live. DeChambeau and Homa both spoke after the event, as they ended Day 1 on a high note. Even though everyone continues to miss Woods, fans were happy to see Homa and DeChambeau.
Woods on the event and USLI
“It’s just amazing for us to have a company like USLI support us and what we’re trying to do for the next generation of kids,” Woods said in a video posted before this year’s event began. With USLI (United States Liability Insurance) it allows the event to fundraise at a level they could not do beforehand.

Players, too, return to the event, always looking forward to supporting a good cause. The invitational is described as “three days of competitive golf, incredible networking, amazing entertainment and once-in-a-lifetime memories”, which is complete with the promise of helping the young generation.
Though Woods might not be physically present at Pebble Beach, his presence is felt throughout. Hopefully, the 82-time PGA Tour winner will be back in time for the next edition.
Will Woods be back soon?
Woods was recently seen in Florida, where he was supporting his son for a golf tournament. Reports also state that his recovery is going well, his pain becoming more manageable as days pass by. If all goes well, we might have Woods back on the course soon. “Now he still has pain, but it’s nothing like what he dealt with before. He’s feeling strong and healthy and optimistic that he’ll be able to return to the tour,” said the source.
While Woods might not be present at the event, he is surely on his way to recovery and we will soon see the legendary player at a golf course. When do you think Woods will return? Let us know.
CONTROVERSY. Naomi Osaka’s boyfriend Cordae brags his relationship with the world no.2
Naomi Osaka has been dating her boyfriend Cordae for more than 2 years often sparking some controversy. Cordae is an up-and-coming American rapper that loves sending strong messages. Last year, on the occasion of the US Open, he was wildly criticized for showing the middle finger when taking some pictures with Naomi Osaka after she won the trophy. That looked extremely inappropriate also because he was stealing the scene of his girlfriend with that questionable gesture.
Cordae has just launched a song, “More Life”, boasting his relationship with Naomi using the following (strong) words: “My girl a tennis star, you niggas out here marrying hoes.”
According to the comments, many people didn’t really like this.

Why Rafael Nadal only had one girlfriend in his life
ABC gave more details on Maria Francisca Perello, Rafael Nadal’s longtime girlfriend and future wife. Maria studied Administration and Direction of companies in the Balearic Islands University. She did not make people notice she was Nadal’s girlfriend.
Then she started working in the department of Communication in Palma de Mallorca. Then she worked in London for Mapfre, which is connected to Nadal. She is currently the director of social integration of the Rafa Nadal Foundation which is based in Barcelona and ran by Nadal’s mother Ana Maria Parera.
In 2013 the couple bought a €4 million worth chalet where they live. Maria understands the sacrifices that her future husband does to keep competing at the highest level. They started dating each other in 2005. She rarely speaks about their relationship.
In 2011, she told John Carlin, writer of Rafa: My Story book, explaining why Nadal often goes to the tournaments being alone: “Travelling around the world would not be good for me and him either. If I followed him everywhere, I think we could stop getting well each other.”
A close source to the couple told ABC: “She gave him his room to relax and not feel tense. When one like Nadal goes through so much pressure he needs to be calm.” In an interview to TODAY Serena Williams was asked her thoughts on her sister Venus as an auntie.
The 23-time Grand Slam winner praised what she considers her best friend. “She’s great. None of us grew up! We’re all just a bunch of kids having fun”, said Serena who became mother of a daughter called Olympia in September 2017.
I feel like things should have changed more,” said Serena, who added: “I feel like the older (Olympia) gets, the more I go back to being how I was. I don’t know if that’s normal, but that (pre-baby life) started coming back for me.”

Because they’re just a part of the culture.”
Later, the rapper even admitted that he felt out of place during the 2019 US Open. “I don’t know if I ever told Naomi this or not, but I felt really out of place. Like, that was my first time being in an environment like that in my entire life,” he said while talking to GQ. He added that it was his first tennis match, and he went to schools where the majority of the kids were Black. As a result, it was “weird” for him to be in that space.
