On the 20th (Korean time), Tiger Woods, who played the PGA Tour Genesis Invitational, which ended at the Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, California, USA, tied for 45th with a total of 1 under par. Woods, who lost 2 strokes with 3 birdies and 5 bogeys in the final round, was satisfied, saying, “It means a lot to have walked 72 holes.
Woods was a hot topic even before this tournament. Through a tournament hosted by his foundation, he returned to the official tournament after 7 months. In February 2021, Woods, who seriously injured his leg in a car overturn accident, announced his return to the Masters Tournament in April of last year after a bloody rehabilitation. Afterwards, he worked harder on rehabilitation due to leg pain and plantar fasciitis, and made a surprise comeback in this tournament.
Early in the tournament, Woods also caused controversy. Woods was caught giving a sanitary napkin to Justin Thomas (USA), whom he was playing with in the ninth hole of the first round. At the time, Woods said that Thomas’ tee shot was shorter than his own, saying, “It was just a joke exchanged personally,” and criticism continued, such as “an insult from a woman’s point of view” and “a very stupid action.” Eventually, after the second round, Woods apologized, saying, “It was not a bad intention. I am sorry for hurting others in any way.”
Although there were rumors, Woods made his presence known through his skills. Especially on the third day, he showed off his ability to reduce 4 strokes. On hole 1 (par 5), which was the first hole of the second half, he showed off his rust-free shot feeling by almost recording an albatross by attaching his second shot to the hole 1m away. He was satisfied, saying, “It’s been a while since the adrenaline came out.”
Woods drove through a cloud of galleries throughout the tournament. He proved his box office power, and he responded by playing 72 holes completely. Woods announced that his physical condition had improved, at least compared to last year, and raised expectations for his next game again.
