Published

on

The trailer for the much anticipated two-part HBO Tiger Woods documentary has dropped, and it’s sure to get every golf fan’s juices flowing.

The two-part series simply entitled ‘Tiger’ airs on HBO on January 10 and 17 at 9 pm. The series features the likes of Steve Williams, Sir Nick Faldo, Tiger’s high school girlfriend, and one of the highest-profile mistresses from Woods’ 2009 sex scandal, Rachel Uchitel.

Check out the trailer below.

The series will chart the rise, fall, and rise again of the 15-time major champion, with the narrative from the documentary driven from Armen Keteyian and Jeff Benedict’s No. 1 best-selling book ‘Tiger Woods.’

Here’s what some of our forum members have been saying about the trailer:

  • bscinstinct: “‘The problem with conquering the world is that the world is going to want it’s revenge’ Haha! Looks pretty good.”
  • iBanesto: “What goes up must come down…Should be good.”
  • MustardTiger: “This looks pretty good, but I haven’t had HBO since they ran Band of Brothers. 
  • Matty0984: “This should definitely be a good watch. Definitely cashing in on some of the Last Dance hype by having another GOAT documentary but if it is half as a good as Last Dance, then it will still be good.”

    just watched the prelude to this coming out soon. my take is we, us, all of us, put too much pressure on these sportsmen, politicians, actors etc. i wish we could leave them alone to walk the streets in their time off but we don’t. its a high price they pay for their wealth. they didn’t ask for the adulation and i guess its hard to know where the fine line is. i wonder if Tiger believes it was all worthwhile ? we may never know.

    Tiger, I think I will try and make a living playing golf Dad. 35 years later and millions in the bank…true success story…..could have been a box box at Safeway and said I think I will try and make a living in the Grocery Business and today a store Manager with thousands in the bank….a true success story.

    He is an amazing story, no doubt. I started playing when he hit the PGA and he was certainly an influence. But, after his fall from grace I thought, “…proves a person can be very special in a sport and mediocre in the rest of their life.” Then, he came back after all that and won the Masters while seemingly keeping his personal life out of the headlines. His comeback is truly amazing… I can’t help but hope the best for him.

    No athlete will ever eqaul Tiger’s game nor influence on many aspects of society. He turned golf into a sport with his athletic prowness, and fueled o golf’s expanson. Perhaps the greatest athlete of his time. His fall proved he was human, but his recovery to win the Masters is unprecedented in all of sports. Now he has tuned his son Charlie like Tiger’s his father prepared him to be headed for greatness. Never a dull moment with Tiger. That is why many turn to sport or to golf to live out our dreams of being the best or the effort in trying to achieve this.

      No athlete ever? C’mon man…Let’s relax on greatest athlete of all time here. He’s certainly one of the best golfers of all time, and he definitely changed golf. His most recent major victory was epic within the realm of golf, and even trickled outside the game.
      However there are lots of better athletes than Tiger. However not many better golfers ever if any. He’s GOAT within his profession.

    So many films on his “rise and fall”.

    Beat to death. I love Tiger. Big fan. But damn, we need more Golf gods in our generation

Tiger hitting fairway woods on range at Hero fuels PNC Championship entry speculation

Published

on

To go alongside his first media briefing since his car accident back in February, Tiger Woods was spotted taking full swings with a fairway wood at the Hero World Challenge yesterday.

The Tiger updates have been coming frequently in the past week, and this seems to be another significant development, especially with rumors circulating around his potential involvement in this month’s PNC Championship.

Woods seemed to downplay the idea of him being able to compete with the world’s best again, but perhaps he was just tempering expectations for his latest comeback.

Will Tiger tee it up alongside Charlie for his comeback event? Let us know what you think!

‘This f—ing ripped shirt. Jesus!’ – McIlroy snaps at reporter after question on Dubai shirt incident

Published

on

When journalists see a bite they usually go for it, and whilst there will no doubt be continual questions directed at Tiger Woods after the recent press conference at his own Hero World Challenge, the small field of 20 were never going to get away with it if there was a story to clamp on to.

Cue Rory McIlroy after his recent ‘ripped shirt’ episode, something that perhaps was worth a minor comment at best in Rory’s view. The journalists present at the event didn’t see it that way though.

At yesterday’s presser, one reporter commented, ”Nice shirt, it’s in one piece” to receive the biting comeback from McIlroy: ”It is. Another joke you tried to make that’s not funny.”

Throughout the briefing, the world number 8 gave succinct thoughts on a variety of current issues, including his own form and the Saudi debate, before one more reporter tried their luck by asking what happened to the shirt.

”I went to the pro shop, bought a new one, threw that one in the trash. I mean, this f—ing ripped shirt. Jesus!”

Let’s hope that’s the end of RippedShirtGate, an episode that only heightened the respect many have for the dedication of the four-time Major winner, but one that clearly is generating plenty of interest from media members.

Ratings flop: Bryson vs Brooks fails to attract interest in least-viewed edition of ‘The Match’

Published

on

Despite the public rows and insults, the ‘cartoon’ bravado, Instagram posts and supposed hate, television viewers were simply not interested in tuning in to the recent ‘grudge’ match between Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka.

As reported by Bunkered, the 12-hole matchplay that mimicked the 12 rounds of a boxing match, had Phil Mickelson as a star commentator and was plugged to death by TNT, but still less than 635,000 viewers tuned in, a hugely disappointing figure given the previous four episodes of the feature.

The idea became a ‘must’ watch when the inaugural episode featured Tiger Woods and Mickelson in November 2018, whilst each of the following three episodes have also received viewing figures of over 1 million.

At its height, The Match 2 was seen by 5.8million viewers, although that particular game was arranged in May 2020, the height of the COVID pandemic.

Whilst viewers were starved of almost any live sporting action at the time, it remains that a friendly jolly-up between Tiger and Peyton Manning, Phil and Tom Brady still saw nearly 10 times the viewers of a much more hyped game.

The Match 3 (July 2021) had a final figure of around 1.25 million and the recent final round of the CJ Cup, a run-of-the-mill PGA Tour event, also saw a higher Nielsen rating, the figure used to assess television size and composition.

In the end, of course, Koepka won well before the end, winning 4 & 3, and nobody really cared.
