PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif. — Tiger Woods began the Genesis Invitational with two perfect shots, easily reaching Riviera’s benign par-5 first hole in two.

PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif. — It’s going to be discussed every time he tees it up until he wins again, so we might as well just go ahead and address it: With a win this week, Tiger Woods would break a tie with Sam Snead and set the all-time record for PGA Tour wins with 83. […]

Tiger Can’t Sustain Fast Saturday Start, Leaving Work To Do If Sunday Is To Be A Record-Breaker At Torrey

LA JOLLA, Calif. — It’s tough to play a better nine holes than Tiger Woods’ front side at Torrey Pines South on Saturday, when he picked apart this U.S. Open muny and made it look like, well, just an ordinary muny. The trusty slap cut off the tee was there, and the always-crucial distance control […]

Tiger Woods Overcomes Opening Double-Bogey Shoots 71 To Keep Hopes Alive At Farmers Insurance Open

LA JOLLA, Calif. — If you thought a double-bogey on the first hole of Torrey Pines South was going to derail Tiger Woods, perhaps you need a history lesson.

Tiger Woods Begins 2020, Quest For 83 With Three-Under 69 At Farmers Insurance Open

LA JOLLA, Calif. – Tiger Woods knows he could have started faster, could have hit it closer, could have squeezed a few more shots out of his first round of 2020. He also knows you can never be too upset with something in the 60s. “Overall, I felt like the golf course was definitely gettable […]

Tiger Woods Ready To Begin 2020, Chase For No. 83 At Torrey Pines

LA JOLLA, Calif. — The GOATs don’t tend to stay tied for very long. They prefer an unimpeded view from the top. Roger Federer, for instance, won his 14th Grand Slam singles title at the 2009 French Open to tie Pete Sampras, then won Wimbledon a month later to break the record. After tying Hank […]

Tiger Woods’ Playing Captain Journey Ends As Most Tiger Stories Do — In Victory

MELBROUNE — With a few high-profile exceptions, team-play captaincies generally come and go without much fanfare. The process usually looks something like this: a past-his-prime major winner, no longer a significant factor on tour but not yet irrelevant, is tapped for the job. It’s typically a reward for a distinguished playing career. The selection spends […]

After Surprising Day Off, Woods Ready For Singles Clash With Abraham Ancer

MELBOURNE, Australia — Every team-play captain confronts difficult choices. Who will play with whom? In what order? And who sits?

He sat his […]

Tiger Woods And Justin Thomas Remain Undefeated Thanks To 18th-Hole Theatrics

MELBOURNE — Justin Thomas didn’t have his best stuff all day. A bit loose with the driver, slightly off with the irons, uncharacteristically inconsistent with the putter. But he was perfect when it mattered most. Thomas holed a slippery 17-foot birdie putt on Royal Melbourne’s 18th green for a desperately needed 1-up victory in foursomes […]

Tiger Makes Six Birdies, Helps Secure Lone U.S. Point On Disappointing Day 1 For Americans

MELBOURNE — The playing captain’s objectives were simple: set the tone and make sure the first point of the Presidents Cup went red, white and blue.

Tiger Woods’ Run Stalls On The Back Nine, Finishes Fourth At Hero World Challenge

NEW PROVIDENCE, Bahamas — Tiger Woods hit his first nine fairways on Saturday. He missed the 10th, and it cost him dearly.

Tiger Shoots Bogey-Free 66 To Climb Leaderboard At Hero World Challenge

NEW PROVIDENCE, Bahamas — After Wednesday’s opening-round 72, one could hardly blame Tiger Woods for concluding that winning might not be in the plans this week at the Hero World Challenge.

Tiger Opens Hero World Challenge With Up-And-Down 72, Six Back Of Lead

NEW PROVIDENCE, Bahamas — Some even-par rounds are a bit of a slog—a birdie here, a bogey there, but never deviating too far from the baseline. Others, like Tiger Woods’ opening 72 at the Hero World Challenge, are a bit of a roller coaster. The tournament host made an eagle, four birdies, four bogeys and […]
