At a press event today for a new public golf course in Ridgedale, Mo., a kid reporter challenged old and fucked up Tiger Woods to a “friendly” competition from the range. Woods, sounding like he was reading a cue card, said, “There’s nothing friendly about it.” He smiled. Chuckles all around.

Not long ago, noted golf lecher Tiger Woods looked to be limping out of the game, his luminous career snuffed out by the back injuries that required surgery in March. “My health is good, and I feel strong, but my game is vulnerable and not where it needs to be,” he said as recently as October, while withdrawing from…
Tiger Woods hasn’t played a meaningful round of golf since August of 2015, and that’s mostly due to the fact that his body is old and broken. Woods’s camp has repeatedly insisted that the former best golfer alive will return to the course, but all attempts to prove he is in playing shape have so far been unsuccessful.…

Tiger Woods declined to provide a timetable for his return during a press conference today in Maryland, stating that he has yet to even take any full shots since his back surgery in March.

ESPN The Magazine dropped a big feature on Tiger Woods this morning, written by Wright Thompson.

Tiger Woods hasn’t played in a golf tournament since August. The 40-year-old still has no timetable for his return, and his back is admittedly in depressingly bad shape. Over the weekend, a couple of tweets claimed to have details on his health, and the purported details were bleak.
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:
