Gregory Levinsky Detroit Free Press Published 7:56 AM EDT Jun 17, 2019 When PGA Tour play returns to Michigan for the first time since 2009, it sounds as if Tiger Woods will not participate. After completing his final round of the U.S. Open in Pebble Beach, California, on Sunday, Woods wasn't completely clear, but sounded like someone who won't compete until the British Open in July. According to GolfDigest.com, when asked when we will see you again, Woods said: "Depends, if you've got a camera phone. ... I think I'm going to take a little bit of time off and enjoy some family time." Asked later if he would play again before the next major in northern Ireland, Woods said, "I'll play at home, yeah." Woods also did not play again after winning the Masters in April until the next major championship, the PGA Championship, in May. The inaugural Rocket Mortgage Classic, sponsored by Quicken Loans, is set for June 25-30 at the Detroit Golf Club. The tournament replaces … [Read more...] about Tiger Woods sounds unlikely for Detroit PGA Tour stop in June

Ryan Wilusz Knoxville News Sentinel Published 9:00 AM EST Nov 8, 2018 Former professional golfer David Feherty has faced multiple tragedies in his life — alcohol addiction, being "flattened" by a truck and losing his son to a drug overdose, all while battling depression. Through all this, comedy has been a way for Feherty "to survive," he said. Feherty will bring his comedy and his stories to the Orpheum Theatre in Memphis on Nov. 15 and the Bijou Theatre in Knoxville on Nov. 16. Ahead of these performances, Feherty spoke with Knox News to discuss his life and what fans can expect from his act. Tickets are still available for both performances. Ryan Wilusz: I want to talk about the two shows you have here in Tennessee, but I also want to talk a little bit about your announcing career. You are obviously known for being witty and funny on the microphone — people not really knowing what you are going to say. When you got into … [Read more...] about David Feherty talks depression, Election Day, Tiger Woods ahead of TN shows
NORTON - Tiger Woods' day finished better than it started at the Dell Technologies Championship, allowing him to leave his first round in good spirits after shooting a 1-over 71 in the second leg of the Fedex Cup playoffs at TPC Boston. "When I did miss it, I missed it in bad spots, didn't have very good angles. But overall, no one is going low out there today," he said. "It's tricky with the wind blowing the way it is right now. Hopefully tomorrow I can miss in correct spots and make a few more birdies than I did today." On his first shot of the day, at the tee of the 425-yard No. 10, Woods abruptly changed clubs, exchanging a 5-wood, for a 3-wood and eventually bogeyed the hole. "That was pretty funny, actually, because I thought I had a 3-wood out," he said. "Joey (LaCava, his caddie) had put the wrong head cover on from the range, so I had a 5-wood out, which I put down there, and was like, 'I can't hit it that far in the wind, I need a 3-wood.' I went back to 3-wood, that's why it … [Read more...] about Tiger Woods optimistic going forward after uneven first day at Dell Technologies Championship
In the midst of his finally-healthy, resurgence, Tiger Woods is in Massachusetts for the Dell Technologies Championship. It's his first time playing in Massachusetts since finishing 65th in at the event in 2013 back when it was still called the Deutsche Bank Championship. He won the event in 2006 and has twice finished second at the event, which is the second leg of the Fedex Cup, the PGA Tour's annual end of the season playoffs. "It's been a while since I've been back. And looking forward to getting out there. I know they've made a few changes since the last time I played," Woods said. "Really looking forward to getting out there. I know I've really played well on this golf course over the years. Hopefully it will be one of those weeks again." He thought the layout of the course at the TPC Boston in Norton suited his game. "I think that in general it sets up for a guy that hits it long and high. And I've done that pretty much my whole golf career," he said. "It's just one of those -- … [Read more...] about Tiger Woods excited for Dell Technologies Championship in Greater Boston
Sometime during the decade when Tiger Woods dominated professional golf – and the word “dominated” doesn’t really do justice to exactly what he did – I thought a good column would be asking his fellow pros if they were getting a little tired of it. The man was winning everything, or winning so often that it seemed as if it was everything. Between 1999 and 2009, Woods recorded 64 of his 79 PGA tour victories and won 13 of his 14 majors. He made the cut in 142 straight events, which is a record that may never even be approached, let alone broken. It might be his most impressive career accomplishment. He was just always there. So, I asked, and the other golfers mostly laughed, because, at that time, being tired of losing to Tiger was like being tired of gravity. What was the point? But one of them also told me, “Are you kidding? He makes money for everybody.” That much was certainly true, and the most clear-eyed among people who took their … [Read more...] about Can Tiger Woods save golf one more time?
