Tiger Woods seriously considering comeback in just two weeks

Published

on

Woods is seriously considering playing the PNC Championship alongside his son Charlie, according to multiple sources. One person familiar with Woods’ progress said he’d “test it next week and make a call.” He plans to make an official decision after hitting balls, playing golf and evaluating the readiness of both his body and swing.

The PNC Championship runs Dec. 18-19 and is a 36-hole team event with a field typically comprised of major champions and their parents or children. Tiger and Charlie Woods finished seventh in the 20-team field in 2020.

Off Course with Claude Harmon: Sean Foley reveals an impressive detail about Tiger Woods’ wedge warmup routine
On this week’s episode of Off Course with Claude Harmon, Sean Foley described the surprising and impressive way Tiger Woods warms up with his short irons.

Why not announce one way or another? Likely because Woods himself doesn’t know for sure. It’s not a lock that he’ll play; his range sessions feature extra breaks these days and he says his stamina is way down. His Instagram videos, like everyone else’s, don’t tell the full story. Still, his eager preparations suggest the tournament is top-of-mind.

On the Sunday before the Hero World Challenge, Woods posted a swing video — just three seconds of him hitting a single iron shot — that sent social media into an uproar. Woods’ condition up to that point was largely unknown; suddenly it was clear how much progress he’d made.

Still, Woods downplayed his tournament readiness when speaking with reporters at the Hero on Tuesday. He made it clear that he never again expected to play a full tournament schedule, suggested he wasn’t close to game-ready and joked about just how short he was hitting it off the tee. But he also left the door open for a possible PNC appearance.

“I’ll put it to you this way, as far as playing at the Tour level, I don’t know when that’s going to happen,” Woods said. “Now, I’ll play a round here or there, a little hit-and-giggle. I can do something like that.”

Woods seemed invigorated by the tournament atmosphere at the Hero World Challenge. After his press conference, PGA Tour cameras captured Woods at the back of the driving range and posted a video of him rifling 3-woods. His swing looked good and it looked to have plenty of speed, too. Later that day he was spotted practicing on site with his two dogs in tow. This is Woods’ tournament, after all. He can make himself at home even when he’s not technically in the field.

Even the fact that Woods is considering this family tournament for his comeback tells us plenty about his current phase of life. It’s no secret how much he and Charlie enjoyed last year’s competition. While previous versions of Tiger comebacks have focused on Torrey Pines or Augusta, this one could take us to the Ritz Carlton in Orlando. (And then, we’d imagine, back to Augusta.)

Tiger Woods Revealed How He Handled an Emotional Moment …: ‘I Was to Blame, and So I’m Taking Initiative With the Kids’

Published

on

People make mistakes, and if the ‘people’ are celebrities, they have to be more careful. As a celebrity golfer, Tiger Woods is always under the camera radar. Check out how he told his children about his split with Elin Nordegren, so they don’t know it from the wrong sources.

 

 

Tiger Woods is the most celebrated golfer in the world. Although he was introduced to golf from a young age, the 46-year-old didn’t become a professional until 1996. He has won over 100 tournaments worldwide and 15 majors. In 2001, Woods became the first golfer to hold all major championships at a time.

Although his professional life is seamless, Tiger had troubles controlling his personal life.

In 2009, Woods’ marriage began falling apart due to claims of infidelity and soon the news hit the headlines. His daughter Sam was two years old, and his son Charlie was a newborn at the time. Although the golf legend apologized for his behavior, his wife, Elin Nordegren, divorced Woods in 2010.

Although they got a divorce, they had to present the reason for the divorce to their children.

How did Tiger Woods explain his split with Nordegren to his children?
Tiger Woods spoke about his split with Nordegren in an interview with TIME. He explained how they are working out well on co-parenting and how the kids got to know about the split from their father.

“We’ve worked so hard at co-parenting, to make sure that their lives are fantastic. For instance, I’ve told her this, I’ve taken the initiative with the kids, and told them up front, “Guys, the reason why we’re not in the same house, why we don’t live under the same roof, Mommy and Daddy, is because Daddy made some mistakes. I just want them to understand before they get to Internet age and they log on to something or have their friends tell them something. I want it to come from me so that when they come of age, I’ll just tell them the real story,” Woods said.

“I was to blame, and so I’m taking initiative with the kids,” added Woods.

Tiger said he felt he was responsible for explaining the reason for their split to the children. He explained that his children should know from him rather than from the internet or, worse, a friend.

Tiger told his kids it was his mistake that made the couple divorce. However, he hasn’t revealed the “actual” reason for it.

Woods explained to the kids that as humans, we all make mistakes. However, it is the bright side that they should look at. Although they don’t live together, he and Elin love the children alike.

‘Charlie Sifford Would Be Proud’: Tiger Woods Hands Aaron Beverly His PGA Tour Debut at 2022 Genesis Invitational

Published

on

Ahead of the Genesis Invitational, Tiger Woods disclosed the name of the recipient of the 2022 Charlie Sifford Memorial Exemption. The PGA Tour event is all set to commence on February 17th, and making his first ever appearance will be Aaron Beverly!

Organized by the Tiger Woods Foundation, the $9,300,000 purse event is often known as the concluding event of the west coast swing of the tour and is played in the Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades.

A chance to play on this event of the PGA Tour is given annually to a golfer representing a minority background in the form of an exception. Renamed after Charles Luther Sifford, the first African American to play on the PGA Tour, they have granted many deserving candidates this exemption in his honour, with Willie Mack as the most recent one in 2021.

Tiger Woods welcomes the PGA Tour exempt
Tiger took to Twitter to disclose the golfer who will soon be teeing it up in Riviera. He wrote, “I’m looking forward to welcoming Aaron Beverly to @thegenesisinv as the 2022 Sifford Exemption. Like me, Aaron learned the game from his dad. I know Charlie Sifford would be proud of Aaron as he makes his PGA Tour debut at Riviera next month.”

Beverly’s father, who was also an athlete, introduced him to golf at the tender age of three. His game flourished in collegiate golf while playing for the Sacramento State University golf team, where he holds multiple records to his name. Moreover, he does not come with insufficient experience. 2021 was his first year on the APGA Tour, where he had a great debut. In addition, he has played on the Golden State Tour, the APGA TOUR Latinoamérica Tour and Mackenzie Tour.

This is, understandably, one of the biggest moments of Beverly’s life. The ecstatic golfer said, “Receiving the Charlie Sifford Memorial Exemption and having the opportunity to play in The Genesis Invitational is a true honor and the opportunity of a lifetime. This is the moment all my hard work and dedication has been preparing me for and I look forward to competing at Riviera.”

Ryder Cup: Ian Poulter was blasted by Tiger Woods in ‘rude text’ as US star ‘not a fan’

Published

on

The biennial event kicks off today at Whistling Straits, on the shore of Lake Michigan in the US, which will see some of the world’s best golfers take part in the iconic showcase. The 43rd instalment of the Ryder Cup pits a US team, with their 12 players among the best 21 golfers on the planet, against an experienced, yet out-of-sorts, Europe. This afternoon will see the four foursomes, which see players paired up and take alternate shots around the course, open up the Ryder Cup.

Europe’s captain Padraig Harrington opted to go with experience and form in the duo of Jon Rahm and Sergio Garcia, who are paired against Americans Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas.

Closing the foursomes will be Ryder Cup legend Poulter, who will go around the course with Irishman Rory McIlory as they chase a point against rookies Patrick Cantlay and Xander Schauffele.

Poulter has been a thorn in the US’ side throughout his Ryder Cup career, winning on five of his six appearances for Europe.

Nicknamed The Postman, because he always delivers, the 45-year-old’s drive to win the tournament has epitomised his career.

But not all golfers are fans of the popular Hertfordshire-born star, and one of the biggest names in the sport reportedly can’t stand him.

Woods, the legendary golfer who made the sport a must-see watch viewing event throughout the past 25 years, once sent a “rude text” to his then-coach Hank Haney about Poulter.

Writing in his 2012 memoir The Big Miss, Haney said the 15-time Major winner sent the messages while all three of them were on his private plane in 2007.

It is well known that Woods was cold with other players during his career, although he would always speak with those who demanded his respect due to their exploits on the course.

Mr Haney wrote: “Those he genuinely liked tended to be quiet, modest, hardworking guys like Jim Furyk and Steve Stricker, whose ability he respected but whose talent didn’t elevate them to the position of serious rival.

“He kept the super talented at a distance. He didn’t want players who could be a threat to feel comfortable around him.

“He was averse to certain players, especially if he felt their records didn’t warrant all the talk. He wasn’t a fan of Ian Poulter, for example.”

The coach noted that a couple of weeks prior to the US Open at Oakmont, in 2007, some players went into the Pittsburgh area course to get some practice rounds in.
