Tiger Woods’ TGR Foundation Hits Notable Milestone As It Celebrates Its 25th Anniversary

PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif. — As far as golf goes, Riviera Country Club has not been friendly to Tiger Woods. At least, not as friendly as other golf courses—he does have a runner-up and seven other top-20 finishes at this kikuyu-covered gem, but he’s played 13 tournaments here and left without the trophy 13 times. It’s […]

Tiger And Charlie Woods Wrap Up A Special Week With ‘Memories For A Lifetime’

ORLANDO — They say every golf tournament has one winner and a whole bunch of losers. Whoever said that has clearly never watched Tiger Woods play golf with his son. “I don’t think words can describe it,” Woods said. “The fact that we were able to have this experience together, Charlie and I. It’s memories […]

Tiger Woods Beams After Playing With Son Charlie In PNC: ‘It Was Perfect’

ORLANDO — Let’s get this out of the way first: Charlie Woods is 11 years old. He could wake up next Thursday and decide golf is for nerds. (And his father, for the record, would be perfectly cool with that.) It’s vital to keep that in mind in the days and months and years ahead. […]

How Tiger Turned A 10 And A 76 Into An Inspiring Performance

AUGUSTA, Ga. — It’s hard not to be romantic about the Masters. Narratives rule all in this business, and more than any other sporting venue, Augusta National seems a willing participant. It co-authors storylines. Jack raises his fist one last time. Phil gets the monkey off his back. Tiger pulls off the unlikeliest of comebacks […]

Tiger’s Mind Was Willing But His Body Wasn’t On A Taxing Saturday

AUGUSTA, Ga. — Watch the right knee. Not when he’s swinging—when he’s bending over. The more Tiger Woods’ right knee buckles as he picks up his tee or his ball out of the ground, the worse he’s feeling. Saturday was always going to be a test—a 3:45 a.m. wakeup, 25.5 holes with only an hour […]

Woods Loses Momentum, But Holds On To His Green Jacket Chances

AUGUSTA, Ga. — The scene wasn’t just set—it was straight out of a painting. Augusta National at Golden Hour. Perhaps the greatest player in the history of golf, wholly immersed in his craft. Hardly a breath of wind. A crowd of 40 or so people, at least 15 of whom have their own Wikipedia page, […]

Tiger Was Feeling It Thursday And You Didn’t Even Need To See His Score To Know

AUGUSTA. Ga. — The evidence hides in the margins. In the moments he’s not standing over the golf ball. Unless you’re blessed with bionic vision, Tiger Woods’ swings always look more or less the same—whether he’s contending or missing a cut. It’s what happens between shots that tells you how he feels. And, at 44 […]

Tiger Chokes Up Recalling His Incredible Victory At Augusta In 2019

AUGUSTA, Ga. — Every single thing Tiger Woods says or does is dissected with surgical fastidiousness. Such is the reality for a true icon of sport. And there is a general consensus that Woods has softened over the years in his interactions with fellow players and media. Gone is the single-minded competitor determined not just […]

Tiger Shoots A 74 In What Might Be His Last Competitive Round Before His Masters Defense

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. — He’s on to Augusta. Okay, maybe Houston. And yet, there is still a big possibility that Sunday’s final round of the Zozo Championship was the last competitive round Woods will play before the Masters, where he’ll be keen to launch a more formidable title defense than he could muster this week. […]

Playing So-So In The ZOZO Isn’t Getting It Done For Tiger Woods

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. — If Thursday’s 76 was terrible and Friday’s 66 was terrific, Saturday was … meh. Tiger Woods trudged his way to a one-under 71 on Saturday at Sherwood Country Club, a round that did not see him gain much ground at all at the Zozo Championship, where birdies seem to be just […]

Tiger Woods makes progress in advance of the Masters with a 66

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. — It wasn’t perfect, by any means, and he’s still way closer to the bottom of the leader board than the top. But Tiger Woods made eight birdies on Friday, signed for six-under 66 and looked an altogether different golfer than the guy who hacked it around Sherwood on Thursday. “Overall I […]

Tiger Is Done In By Historic Par-5 Stumbles, Shoots Opening 76 In Title Defense

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. — Historically speaking, the matchup of Tiger Woods vs. Par 5s has been one-way traffic. Less a battle; more sheer demolition. Woods has feasted on the holes we used to call three-shotters, leading the PGA Tour in par-5 scoring 10 times in his career. On Thursday, the par 5s got some revenge. […]

Tiger Woods Overmatched By Winged Foot In Missing Cut

MAMARONECK, N.Y. — That ridge. That damned, beautiful ridge. It guards the front of Winged Foot’s 18th green like a troll with a toothache. It wrecks rounds. Just ask Tiger Woods. On Thursday, playing his last hole of the day, Woods’ second shot came up just short of it. He flubbed it, then made double. […]

Tiger Woods’ Round Plays In Three Acts, And Last One Was A Real Downer

MAMARONECK, N.Y. — Golf rounds are long, but these are longer. Eighteen at a U.S. Open at Winged Foot, feels like 36 anywhere else. The round has chapters. It ebbs and it flows and then it ebbs again. Take Tiger Woods’ five-hour opening round of this 120th U.S. Open Championship. Five birdies, six bogeys and […]

Tiger Sees Season Come To Frustrating End At The BMW Championship

OLYMPIA FIELDS, Ill. — With an unremarkable 23-inch putt for par, this strange 2019-’20 PGA Tour season came to an unspectacular end for Tiger Woods. Woods shot his fourth straight over-par round at fiery Olympia Fields, a one-over 71 that will see him wind up well back of the top-five finish he needed at the […]

Late Triple Sinks Tiger Woods’ Round And Chance At Reaching Tour Championship

OLYMPIA FIELDS, Ill. — Tiger Woods is on to Winged Foot. Well, not quite yet. Woods still has one round left here at the BMW Championship, but a third-round 72 left on Saturday him at 10 over for the tournament, all but eliminating his chances of qualifying for next week’s Tour Championship. Thus, Sunday’s final […]

Struggling With Putter, Tiger Has Frustrating Second Round At The BMW Championship

OLYMPIA FIELDS, Ill. — Sometimes, golf taunts. Tiger Woods couldn’t buy a putt all day. When he needed them to drop, they wouldn’t, and he slid well down the leader board at the BMW Championship. And then, when the round was already lost, a long-distance putt found the bottom. Of course. Woods holed a 37-footer […]

Three Late Bogeys Turn Tiger Woods’ Opening Round At The BMW From Solid To Disappointing

OLYMPIA FIELDS, Ill. — It felt like a U.S. Open on Thursday at Olympia Fields. One week after Dustin Johnson made golf look video-game easy at The Northern Trust, the BMW Championship offered an entirely different test. The greens were slick, the rough juicy, the wind howling. The lowest anyone got was three under, Hideki […]

Tiger Takes Positives From Northern Trust After Closing 66, But Has Work To Do To Reach Tour Championship

NORTON, Mass. — Ahhh. That was more like it. On the final day of the Northern Trust, Tiger Woods finally approached TPC Boston the way the rest of the field had been doing all week, as a course begging for birdies. He made six of them on his front nine Sunday, shooting a blazing five-under […]

Tough Saturday For Tiger Woods And Rory McIlroy In Northern Trust

NORTON, Mass. — The pairing was glitzy. Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy. Nineteen major championships and an even 100 PGA Tour wins between them. Both players made the cut on the number, and they were the second group off on Saturday morning at the Northern Trust, but there was still a semi-buzz in the air […]
