A robot just pulled off the best possible move in the game of golf.
Time’s Lorne Rubenstein has a fascinating, wide-ranging interview with Tiger Woods that is really worth your time. In it, Tiger talks on coming to grips with his lost abilities, his personal relationships, and his legacy. He’s surprisingly honest throughout, never more so than with this exchange:
The Hero World Challenge golf tournament is this this week, and it’s hosted by Tiger Woods—though Woods isn’t playing, as a series of injuries limited him to just 11 starts on tour this year, culminating in a pair of back surgeries early this fall. When will Woods be back? Will Woods be back? Speaking at the…
Steve Williams served as Tiger Woods’ caddy from 1999 to 2011, during which Woods dominated the PGA Tour, won 13 of his 14 Majors, and earned over $88 million. Williams recently wrote a book called “Out Of The Rough” about his time with Tiger, and he was very critical of Woods, of whom he once said he wanted to “shove…
Tiger Woods missed the cut at The Open by seven strokes after shooting a second round 75 Saturday. It’s the second straight major championship Woods has failed to reach the end of, the first time in his career he’s missed the cut at consecutive majors.
Not great, my friend! Not great at all.
There’s a report floating around that Lindsey Vonn broke up with Tiger Woods after she found out he was cheating on her with Amanda Boyd, Jason Dufner’s ex-wife. Regardless of the story’s veracity, it does lead to a basic question: Should people still fuck Tiger Woods?
The par-5 eighth at Chambers Bay turned ugly for Tiger Woods today, as his attempt to bounce back at the U.S. Open already finds the three-time champ four over par. He actually managed to par this, despite losing a handle on things.
Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods have called it quits.
Tiger Woods’s post-tournament interview on CBS featured one surprising revelation: that the four-time Masters champ dislocated his wrist after catching his club on a root early in the day, leading to “a bone popping out” but that “I put it back in.”
Tiger Woods has actually been playing pretty decently at this year's Masters, but a rotten tee shot on today's par-5 13th left him dropping the old reliable "oh my fucking God" again. We'd say the same thing if, you know, we just hurled a club like that.
Tiger Woods hit a bad golf shot at Augusta today, and then he said “dumbass” on TV.

Tiger Woods isn't golfing. He's taking some time off to rest, to heal, and to work on his game. But according to one dude who probably doesn't know anything, it's all a coverup, and Woods is actually serving a secret Tour suspension for a failed drug test. Today, both the PGA Tour and Woods's agent flatly deny the…
Tiger Woods, last seen doing a very realistic impression of a terrible chipper, will take a break from tournament golf, he announced on his website. Woods withdrew from last week's Farmers Insurance Open with a back injury, but says it is unrelated to the surgery he had last March to relieve a pinched nerve. Either…
Holy shit! This is Tiger Woods's third shot on the par-4 tenth (his first of the day) at the Farmers Insurance Open. Jesus Christ, he just bangs this thing like a railroad spike, less like a chip shot than Miguel Cabrera rocking a line drive up the third base line, or any Dwight Howard hook shot ever.
Go with me on this for a second. If you were gonna fly all the way out to Italy to surprise your girlfriend at her job—she's up for a record! this is important to her!—and go through the trouble of letting her family know ahead of time, and having them keep it a secret, you'd probably take a second or two to freshen…
Tiger Woods made his return to PGA play today at his own Hero World Challenge charity tournament, and the above video suggests maybe he needs a few more months off. Here he is on the par-5 13th at Isleworth, struggling mightily. He's currently +4, in last place.
It's still stunning how quickly everything fell apart for the world's greatest golfer, last seen being a humorless prick. And it all began five years ago today: a car crash, and cheating allegations that spiraled into one of the biggest sports scandals we're ever likely to see.
