TIGER WILL PLAY THE MEMORIAL
Tiger Woods continues his roller-coaster ride through 2019 by getting back into the mix at the Memorial Tournament in Dublin, Ohio this week after failing even to make the cut at the PGA Championship and falling woefully to the likes of Russell Westbrook in his own namesake ‘TIGER JAM’ poker tournament in Las Vegas which featured poker, golf clinics and even a performance by Janet Jackson.
Over the years, this annual event has raised millions of dollars towards “providing college access and educational opportunities to underserved students across the country”. Tiger must have been feeling pretty good when someone asked him during a clinic what he thought of the guy who bet $85,000 on him to win the Masters.
Uncharacteristically, Woods let go with a never before publicly expressed expletive that caught the crowd off guard and brought on riotous laughter and applause. All he said was, “F…ing Great Bet!” Then the Tiger took his swing, smiled and added, “Dumb-ass for the Grand Slam part, though”.
Woods sat out the Colonial down in Texas to play some poker and rest up for the big $9,100,000 Memorial Tournament to be played at the legendary Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio just outside of Columbus where he will be paired with Bryson DeChambeau and Justin Rose, making up a superlative trio of golfers for the competition.
Tiger will, of course, also be there at Pebble Beach on June 13 when the greatest golfers on the planet once again tee off on one of the worlds’ most beautiful and dramatic seaside golf courses for the 2019 US Open where Woods has already won 5 times.
Tiger Woods shocked and delighted the golfing world just recently by winning the 2019 Masters Tournament at the enchanting Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia. It was an awesome, inspiring victory which left more than one avid spectator in tears of joy. The very next time out Tiger was so out of sync that he missed the cut on the foreboding Bethpage Black Course out on Long Island, New York.
Whatever happens for the remainder of the PGA Tour this year, it is highly unlikely that anything will top Tiger winning the Masters, unless Mr. Woods himself comes through with another magic ride like he took at Augusta.
Still to come we have the US Open at Pebble Beach, the British Open, this year being played at the Royal Portrush Golf Club in Northern Ireland, the Northern Trust in New Jersey, the BMW Championship in Illinois and finally the Tour Championship held at the East Lake Golf Club outside of Atlanta, Georgia as the PGA Tour finishes up back near Augusta where, in 2019, Tiger Woods, once again, won the Masters.
