Sunday was not a successful one for the Woods family who finished eighth after a round of 65.

‘It was literally non-stop. It starts with the pre-round. Before we even got here, the texts were flying,’ Tiger said of the back and forth.

‘And then warmup, the jabs come out. And then throughout the round, there were jabs, there were a few notes left here and there, a couple things said that we love.’

Woods is also giving the fans what they want, just by being on the course. It may be early days, but it looks like his son will continue that tradition.
