Notah Begay gives gloomy update on Tiger’s injuries ahead of 2024 Masters

Published

on

While speaking with USA Today, Tiger Woods’ good friend, Notah Begay III, discussed the health of the 15-time major champion.

“He’s trying to formulate a strategy and approach that he can work within given the constraints that he’s presented with. And he’s got some constraints,” Begay said. “He’s got zero mobility in that left ankle and really has low-back challenges now, which he knew he was going to have.”

At Begay’s tournament he hosts that Tiger’s son Charlie played in, Tiger told him, “My ankle doesn’t move. So, something’s going to take the stress. I mean, the stress is going to transfer somewhere else.”

At the Genesis Invitational, that pain transferred to Woods’ back, causing him to withdraw from the tournament.

“For the past couple months, he’s been trying to find a way to recover,” Begay added. “He can play the golf. We always knew the question was going to be ‘Can he walk the 72 (holes)?’ That’s still up in the air. But can he recover, from one round to the next? That’s the biggest question that I really don’t know and he’s not going to know either until he gets out there and figures out whether the way he’s prepared for this year’s Masters is going to work for him.”

Last year, Woods made the cut at Augusta, but was forced to withdraw over the weekend due to plantar fasciitis.

The week will be sure to test Tiger, as Augusta National is one of the most difficult walks in golf.

On Thursday, Callaway responded to Gebbie’s wishes.

Thankfully, Callaway was able to track down Gebbie’s contact info and sent him some new clubs.

Ben An shares his thoughts on LIV pros not being able to play in the Presidents Cup

Published

on

While speaking with GolfWRX, Ben An discussed whether or not he believes LIV players should be allowed to play in the Presidents Cup.

“Well, it would be a great addition to the team, but I feel like we’re missing Cam (Smith), (Joaquin) Niemann and maybe Dean Burmester. He’s been playing great and I saw last week he was playing some good golf.”

An added that the absence of the LIV pros is also a blow to the U.S. side as well, but that the rules are the rules.

“But, you know, it’s just the, just the rules of now, right? You know, it sucks for not having the team, but it’s kind of the same for the U.S. team, right? They’re missing a few players as well.

“We need to have a win in our national team, but it’s up to Mike and the PGA tour to decide. So it’s run by the PGA Tour, not the PGA of America, like the Ryder Cup.”

However, An stated that he doesn’t expect any changes to the rules for the upcoming 2024 Presidents Cup.

“So, you know, as of now, I mean, this year, I don’t see it happening. But hopefully, like I said, we’ll figure something out, we’ll figure this merger, or something out in the next few years and hopefully see them in the team because they, like you said, they’re great players, they will miss out.

“But I think even the teams we have right now, I think it’s pretty good. Playing in Canada will help us this year, you know, we’ll see what happens…We’ll miss them, but hopefully we have a strong enough team to compete against the U.S. team this year.”

Check out the interview in full below.
