The surprising event Tiger Woods hints at playing before the Masters

Published

on

Many people were under the impression that this week’s Zozo Championship would be Tiger Woods’ last stop before heading to Augusta National in three weeks, but not so fast.

According to the Big Cat himself, the Houston Open may well be on the 15-time major champion’s radar, which is the very week before the Masters kicks off.

Speaking to media at Sherwood CC this week, Woods said

“Well, I think my plan is just to play and practice. I don’t know if I’m going to play Houston or not. I’m not playing next week, and we’ll see how this week goes and make a decision from there.”

That event that he has ruled himself out of next week is the Bermuda Championship, and further explaining his preparation before the Masters, Woods brought up the possibility of Houston once more to reporters:

“This entire year has been different for all of us. And my run-up to Augusta is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. That’s just the way it is. The whole idea is to be ready in a few weeks and whether or not that’s playing one more event, whether that’s Houston or just playing here at Zozo, just making sure that I’m ready for Augusta.”

Woods has never before played the Houston Open, and in 2020 it will be the first event to have fans back on-site since the Tour’s restart, with 2,000 spectators to be allowed through the gates each day of tournament play.

The Match 3: Mickelson/Barkley vs Curry/Manning – Full Viewer’s Guide

Published

on

Capital One’s The Match: Champion’s for Change gets underway with this week, with two new additions joining the third edition of the contest. Phil Mickelson will team up with Charles Barkley, while Peyton Manning will return and this time pair up with current NBA star Steph Curry.

Ahead of the event, here’s a rundown of all the essential details you need to know about the contest

The Format

The format for The Match 3 is 18 holes of modified alternate shot. 

In this format, both players from each team will hit tee shots, and then swap balls for their approach shots (e.g. Mickelson will hit Barkley’s second shot and vice versa). Following the second shot, the teams will decide between which ball they want to play for their third.

How good are Barkley, Manning and Curry at golf?

We saw Peyton Manning perform well in The Match 2, and the former NFL quarterback plays off a 6.4 handicap index.

Having played on the formerly known Web.com Tour, Steph Curry is a very proficient golfer and plays off a 0.1 handicap index.

Charles Barkley’s handicap index is unknown, and his swing used to be a source of ridicule. However, Barkley has transformed his swing in recent years, and you can check out this small sample of his game from when he played the ‘Bogey or Better’ challenge at the 18th hole during the broadcast of The Match 2.

Location and Date

The event takes place Friday, Nov. 27 at Stone Canyon Golf Club in Oro Valley, Arizona.

Who will the event benefit?

The Match: Champion’s for Change will raise funds for historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).

How to Watch

The event will be broadcast live on TNT this Friday, Nov. 27, from 3 PM ET. In addition, Bleacher Report will provide a “Cart Cam” stream – leading up to and during the event.

The Coverage

TNT’s live coverage of Capital One’s The Match will be hosted by Brian Anderson, who will provide play-by-play alongside Trevor Immelman and Andre Iguodala. Cheyenne Woods and Gary McCord will feature as on-course announcers for the event, while Eli Manning will be part of a pre-game show as well as “Cart Came” alongside LPGA legend Michelle Wie.
