Tiger Woods talks about his recovery in first interview since accident



In his first interview since his single-car accident earlier this year, Tiger Woods has revealed that his rehab has been “more painful than anything” he has ever experienced.

In an exclusive interview with Golf Digest, Woods went into detail on his injury and recovery, as well as the outpouring of support he has received in the wake of his accident.

Speaking on his post-accident injuries, Woods told the publication

“This has been an entirely different animal. I understand more of the rehab processes because of my past injuries, but this was more painful than anything I have ever experienced.

My physical therapy has been keeping me busy. I do my routines every day and am focused on my No.1 goal right now: walking on my own. Taking it one step at a time.”

Woods first posted a photo update last month, with the 15-time major champion on crutches and in a walking boot.

Many fans commented at the time how Tiger’s upper body looked very athletic, and Woods told Golf Digest that it was likely a combination of the crutches and his workouts.

“It’s funny because in that photo, the crutches definitely make my shoulders look big!. Maybe it’s the workouts, too. It’s been nice having the ability to still stay strong and work out my upper body.”

The 45-year-old also described the support he has received from his legion of fans as well as those away from the sport as “incredible” and mentioned how it’s been a big help for him as he continues his recovery.

“It’s been incredible. I have had so much support from people both inside and outside of golf which means so much to me and has helped tremendously.”

Woods didn’t disclose any information to Golf Digest on his hopes of playing golf again.

Symetra Tour player hit with baffling two-stroke penalty



While the majority of infractions this year in women’s golf have been down to slow play, over the weekend, Sharmila Nicollet suffered what is likely to be the most uncommon of penalties seen all year.

Nicollet was competing at the Prasco Charity Championship, a Symetra Tour event in the U.S, and was hit with the penalty when her caddie needed to go to the bathroom.

Per Nicollet, the 30-year-old received the two-stroke penalty because her caddy used the cart to go to the restroom, and it’s a penalty that has left golf fans stunned.

“Golf needs to calm TF down,” wrote one fan on social media, while another added, “Golf needs to take a serious look into some of the rules, which are ridiculous.”

Nicollet went on to finish the event T55.

Photo fuels speculation that the 13th hole at Augusta is set to be lengthened



The 13th hole at Augusta National has provided plenty of drama over the years, but it has played as one of the easiest holes in recent times, with players now for the most part overpowering the par-5.

The hole played to an average of 4.622 strokes back in April this year, and a new photo courtesy of Eureka Earth has fueled speculation that work is being done to extend the hole.

The photo shows work being done on a piece of land at neighbouring Augusta Country Club (land purchased by the club in 2017), with the site of the construction left of the current tee box and approximately 50 yards further back.

The move could see players without the option to go over the trees in the future, but it is still very much speculation that Augusta National will extend the hole as back in 2019, chairman Fred Ridley said: “Although we now have options to increase the length of this hole, we intend to wait to see how distance may be addressed by the governing bodies before we take any action.”

The 13th isn’t the only hole under construction at Augusta currently either, with Eureka Earth showing that there are changes taking place in many different areas of the course.
