Before the event, Woods said:

  • His recovery went well
  • The plantar fasciitis he developed is less of a problem now, his right ankle is more of a problem these days
  • He was hitting balls and training from his Jupiter home practically every day
  • Woods believes “ambassador” Rory McIlroy had a “tough” time in 2022, but he was “extraordinary” in helping the PGA Tour navigate life with a new rival
  • He’s playing to win this week and can’t see himself ever going to a golf tournament as a ceremonial golfer

What about the masters champions dinner, tiger?

forest said:

“The champions dinner will obviously be something to talk about. We as a whole must honor Scottie, Scottie is the winner, it’s his dinner.
