19th Hole

Tiger Woods once had a priceless reaction when asked if he’d ever heard of Tom Hoge



Tom Hoge recorded his first victory on the PGA Tour on Sunday at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am, with years of hard work paying off for the North Carolina native.

The 32-year-old has come a long way since making his debut on the Canadian Tour back in 2011, and while the golf world certainly knows who he is today, that wasn’t exactly the case when he was in contention alongside Tiger Woods back in 2015.

At the Wyndham Championship seven years ago, Tiger was looking to capture his first PGA Tour win in two years and found himself tied for the 36 hole lead with Hoge.

After his second-round press conference, Woods was asked had he ever heard of his co-leader at the event, which lead to the following confused exchange with a reporter: 

Reporter: Tiger this probably unfair but have you ever heard of Tom Hoge?

Tiger: “No, I wouldn’t. What is it? Or him? Or what? I don’t know.

Reporter: The guy you’re tied with.

Tiger: No, I don’t know. Never met him, never seen him. Don’t know anything about him.”

Seven years later, and Tom Hoge is now a winner on Tour and heading to Augusta National.

    Just what’s wrong with GOLRWRX trying to spotlight this? I played and watched golf for 30 years. Yet, I’ve never heard Tom Hoge either. I sometimes think someone at GOLFWRX is sick but not in a good way.

    Tiger has never given a crap about nobody else until his career was close to over and needed the “people.”

    Spare me!

    Wasn’t there a similar anecdote when Tiger came to the scene?
    Someone asked the player if they had ever heard of Tiger Woods and the guy said “No, I’ve never played there” lol

      Exactly. Either a sick sense of humor or just a sick person.
