Tiger appears on GMA, earns dramatic victory over Michael Strahan in putting contest

Published

on

On Monday morning, Tiger Woods appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America to promote his new book, The 1997 Masters: My Story. He spoke about the mental fortitude that fueled his past success, but the 14-time major champion offered little about his future, sticking to the script golf fans have grown accustomed to hearing in recent years.

When GMA host Michael Strahan asked him if he planned to play in the 2017 Masters, which is only two weeks away, Woods said:

“God, I hope so. I’m trying. I’m trying everything to get back and play.”

The most interesting part of Woods’ GMA appearance was a putting contest that saw the four-time Masters winner face off against Strahan, a 15-year NFL veteran with a Super Bowl ring and seven Pro Bowl appearances. The competitive juices were flowing (at least for a morning TV show) and Woods capped off the exhibition with a buzzer beater and a signature fist pump that was surprisingly powerful (and graceful) for a man said to be unable to hit golf balls right.

    Ouch, that receding hairline!

    I’m no fan of his but I actually think he’s quite good at this stuff, admittedly as much as it may be an act on his part, he’s pretty good on TV in this type of situation. It does show up a major misjudgement made bu him/his management during the bulk of his career. If he had done a few of these a year, ok it might have slightly damaged what he saw as his “impregnable aura of invincibility” amongst his peers, but I think it would have softened a lot of golf fans to him who otherwise have been polarised against him with his on course and in press conference actions over the years.

    Tiger on with Van Pelt (espn) tonite. Sounds like a broken record, more reps, trying to feel better. I think he’s trying to convince himself. I don’t feel sorry for him, but it must be tough for him…

    Well, at least Eldrick has found the job he’s most good at – being a clown on talk shows – where he started his life

    Tiger’s looking like Dr. Dre in his old age. He needs to shave his head and get it over with. The ‘roids have given him “fathead”, same as Dre.

Think you had a bad weekend on the course? At least you didn’t do this

We hope this golfer didn’t take the ultra-premium golf equipment plunge before sending his clubs to a watery grave. Either way, this was an expensive (and strangely calm) reaction to a bad round.

Tiger Woods battles terrifying deep-sea creature, wins

Published

on

With four tweets since July 21st, Tiger Woods is exposing himself on social media in a way we haven’t seen.

And with his latest tweet, he’s…exposing himself in a way we haven’t seen.

A shirtless-and-swimsuited Woods appears holding what he purports to be a lobster (but what looks more like a monster of the deep sea).

Nothing like it, indeed.

He’s lucky to have escaped with his life after battling that horrifying crustacean. Spiny lobsters, apparently, don’t have claws, but somehow that doesn’t make them any less terrifying, as they look poised to impale you and carry you off to their reefy lairs.

Not sure how big the beast in Woods grasp actually is, but it pales in comparison to this 14-pound creature from your nightmares.

14_pound_lobster_caught_near_Bermuda_0_48217534_ver1.0_640_480Anyway, Woods has been on something of a grand tour of late it seems, taking in a friendly version of El Clasico in Miami and posing with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.

All of this is good to see. It was two months ago that Woods entered rehab following his now-infamous Memorial Day arrest for impaired driving.

What this portends for his future on the golf course is unclear, but you’d assume the 14-time major champion is feeling pretty good if he’s free diving after monsters of the deep.

Steph Curry did anything but embarrass himself in Web.com Tour debut

Published

on

Vegas set the over/under on Steph Curry’s opening round at the Ellie Mae Classic at 76.5.

And Curry didn’t sound like the confident man who’s perennially ready to hoist a 3-pointer from any distance in his post-practice round press conference yesterday.

But when he stepped inside the ropes as a competitor, the Golden State Warriors point guard was very much the man who does things like this

Which is really impressive, considering this post-round quote:

“As soon as he said my name on the first tee, I couldn’t feel anything. After about four holes I settled down.”

So, if you bet the over, you can’t be blamed. Curry, however, had other plans for his debut, getting around par-70 TPC Stonebrae in 74 strokes.

After starting off with a bogey (and a tee shot that landed in a golf cart cup holder), Curry played his remaining 17 holes in a respectable three over. That’s pretty damn good.

The highlight was a curling birdie putt at the par-3 sixth hole (his 15th of the day). Jordan Spieth’s fellow Under Armour sponsee celebrated with a variation on Spieth’s “go get that” Open command (per ESPN’s Michael Collins)

Curry plays to a 0.6 handicap, did excellent work at TPC Stonebrae, it has to be said. And while he was tied for 141st at the time he completed his round, his plus-4 round placed him four strokes off the cut-line pace and ahead of a handful of pros.

Enjoy a few highlights of No. 30’s 74, courtesy of the Web.com Tour. As you can see, Curry’s shots aren’t dripping with tour pro precision (yet), but the man is a solid scrambler and a gritty competitor.

Well played, Mr. Curry.
