At 9 ET friday morning, at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Orlando, some 10 months after sustaining multiple injuries in a car crash, Tiger Woods is playing golf in public again. In front of fans, too.
Tiger Woods, the return
While Woods said last week that he was pairing with son Charlie for Saturday and Sunday’s parent-child PNC Championship, the event announced Monday that the elder Woods will also play in Friday’s pro-am. He and Matt Kuchar tee off at 9 a.m. off tee No. 1 (12-year-old Charlie is not playing ahead of the event), and with the gates opening at 7 a.m., you can expect a tweet or 10 from the grounds at the now-sold-out event.
A new career as a mental coach, alongside some of the best golfers in the world to drag them to success and support them in times of difficulty. This is what Michael Phelps, the most decorated athlete in the history of the Olympics, seems to have undertaken (also in the name of friendship). A great golf enthusiast, many now define him as the “secret weapon” of green totems such as Jon Rahm, number one in the world ranking, and Jordan Spieth, the Texan who, after a long period of crisis, is back in 2021 to amaze.
“He’s a good guy, he’s been through a lot as a sportsman and he’s the greatest Olympian of all time with a lot of tricks up his sleeve. I’m not going to reveal what I asked him but I can say that he has helped me a lot in the last period. “. These are the revelations of the Spaniard Rahm. For the legendary swimmer, nicknamed ‘the Baltimore Shark’, important words also came from Spieth, today 12 / o in the world ranking. “The mental aspect is something I’ve worked on a lot with him lately. I’m really lucky to have him around. Besides, he’s a great lover of golf and having him now more and more in our world is an added value.” This is the opinion of Spieth who yesterday, alongside Phelps, played the Pro-Am of the BMW Championship, the second event of the Play-Offs of the Pga Tour starting today in Owing Mills (USA), Maryland.
