As part of our new ‘Tiger Tuesdays’ weekly content, we created some Tiger Tuesdays forum threads to get feedback from WRXers on some hot topics relating to the 15-time major champion Tiger Woods.

For one of those topics, we asked our members which moment from a Tiger Woods press conference or interview is their favorite, and our members have been putting forward their best moments.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • puttingmatt: “There a few good ones, but the “Confession”, rises to the top. Always felt it was done for sponsors. Thought he owed no one except his family any explanation. Certainly, not the public.”
  • dan360: “Honorable mention to this interview. 1. Hocking a loogie while Feherty is talking. 2. Feherty calling him a loser and Woods thanking him. One of the few moments he was actually himself during a post-round interview. I’m happy that lately, we get to see more of this guy and less of the IMG robot.”
  • sharkiesj: “9 & 8.
  • ElMosquito: “2010 Masters Press Conference. Reporter: ‘Tiger, golf wise, what are your expectations this week?’ Tiger: ‘Nothing’s changed. I’m gonna go out and try and win this thing.’ Then shoots an opening round of 68. Impressive.”
  • MinuPukeLife: “The Alex Miceli staredown . . . ‘you’re a real beauty’ + Curtis Strange ‘you’ll learn'”

Why Tiger Woods loves to practice shots into the wind

Published

on

On Tuesday, golf fans received a behind the scenes look at Tiger Woods’ backyard set up and given an insight into why he loves practicing into the wind in Episode 6 of Golf Digest’s and Golf TV’s 13-part mini-series “At home with Tiger Woods”.

Speaking with host Henni Zuel, Woods explained what he works on when conditions are blustery as they often are in South Florida, and what he finds so beneficial about practicing into the wind, saying:

“I like to generally practice into the wind. But one of the things I find, that if I do too much of it, is that I’ll start leaning on my left side to try and take the ball flight down. But, I like also practicing into the wind because if I’m off one way or the other, it’ll get magnified. Downwind every ball pretty much goes dead straight. And so practicing into the wind, I can see whether I’m off.”

Speaking on what is the best feeling about hitting it well when practicing into the wind during a session, Woods revealed:

“The best is practicing into the wind and I’m hitting it flush. I’m solid. But it’s also flighted at the same time. That’s like one of the greatest feelings when I’m dialed in, in that regard.”

The 15-time major champion also broke down why his favorite thing to do for fun when it’s windy is “like all kids” to hit “spinny shots.”

“Like any kid, I grew up with a Balata ball. I mean, it was like the coolest thing ever, to make this thing spin back. And the balls are a little more difficult now. I need a little more wind and a little more aid. And obviously firmer ground helps create more spin.”

The 8 events Tiger Woods will likely play in for the remainder of 2020

Published

on

Last week, speculation was rife that Tiger Woods would tee it up at this week’s RBC Heritage for the first time in two decades. But Woods’ decision to sit this week out has many wondering when we will next see the Big Cat tee it up again.

That next event looks likely to be at The Memorial Tournament in the middle of July; an event Woods has won five times during his career. Assessing Woods’ schedule after that is a little tricker, but let’s try and break it down.

The Majors and Ryder Cup

The PGA Championship, The U.S. Open, The Ryder Cup and The Masters are all shoe-ins and don’t need any explaining. Tiger undoubtedly will be there for all if healthy.

The PGA Tour Events 

Though Muirfield will host a new event the week previous, I don’t think Woods will want two weeks in a row to restart his campaign, and there’s little doubt he’ll want to play The Memorial Tournament which has always been one of Tiger’s most prioritized events of the year.

With the revised schedule, it seems the next most likely event you could expect to see Tiger is the WGC-FedEx St. Jude. It could be a good tune-up for the PGA Championship which is the following week, but Woods didn’t play it in 2019, and it would likely mean four events in one month. I say he skips it again.

If that’s the case, Woods will have played just two events heading to the playoffs and will likely be lagging in the FedEx Cup standings. Unless he can win either The Memorial or The PGA Championship, I’d expect him to play both the Northern Trust and BMW Championship, but potentially leaving himself too much to do and missing out on the Tour Championship.

From there, the only regular event I expect to see Woods at is the ZOZO Championship. It’s pretty much a lock, with it being three weeks before The Masters and a few weeks after the Ryder Cup. The perfect opportunity to defend his title in Japan, while tuning up his game to give himself the best preparation to go ahead and win his sixth green jacket. 

He will, of course, finish off his year at his own event The Hero which hasn’t been included as it’s an unofficial money event.

There you have it; the (highly speculative!) revised 2020 schedule of Tiger Woods:

  • July 13-19: The Memorial Tournament, Muirfield Village GC, Dublin, OH
  • Aug. 6-9: PGA Championship, TPC Harding Park, San Francisco, Calif.
  • Aug. 20-23: Northern Trust, TPC Boston, Norton, Mass.
  • Aug. 27-30: BMW Championship, Olympia Fields CC, Olympia Fields, Ill.
  • Sept. 17-20: U.S. Open, Winged Foot GC, Mamaroneck, N.Y.
  • Sept. 25-27: Ryder Cup, Whistling Straits, Kohler, Wisc.
  • Oct. 22-25: ZOZO Championship, Accordia Golf Narashino CC, Chiba, JPN
  • Nov. 12-15: Masters, Augusta National, Augusta, Ga.

The surprising event Tiger Woods is heavily favored to play on his return to the PGA Tour

Published

on

This week’s Charles Schwab Challenge will host 16 of the world’s top 20 players, but one man’s absence has golf fans (and bookmakers alike) speculating on when we will see him return – Tiger Woods.

So when will we get to see the 15-time major champion back in action on the PGA Tour?

Well, the event that is currently the heavy favorite for Woods to next play may surprise you – considering he hasn’t played the course in over 20 years.

Per SportsBettingDime.com, Woods is 4/3 to play the RBC Heritage at Harbor Town next week – an event he last played in 1999 where he finished T18.

The Memorial, an event Woods has won five times in his career, is the second favorite in the betting, but it’s an event that is also over a month away.

Check out the contenders below courtesy of SportsBettingDime.com:

When will Tiger return?

  • RBC Heritage (June 18-21): 4/3
  • Memorial (July 16-19): 2/1
  • Travelers (June 25-28): 4/1
  • John Deere Classic (July 9-12): 50/1
  • Rocket Mortgage (July 2-5): 75/1

Where do you think Woods will compete next, WRXers?
