Lindsey has her man’s back!

Tiger Woods nearly broke the internet Tuesday afternoon when he posted a column on Derek Jeter’s new website, the Players’ Tribune, which blasted a column in the December issue of Golf Digest for a satirical fake interview with Woods that was penned by distinguished writer Dan Jenkins.

No more love in the Middle East for Tiger?

It appears to be the end of an era for Tiger Woods and his former love affair with the Middle East, where tournaments paid a couple of million dollars each year in appearance fees for the former world no. 1 just to play in their events. Apparently that will not be the case in 2015, according to The Telegraph’s James Corrigan:

Butch Harmon is considered the best golf instructor on the planet, and he coached Tiger Woods during his wonder years in the late 90s and early 2000s. Harmon spoke about Tiger’s round on Friday saying he was upset Tiger didn’t withdraw, and wants him healthy and playing well.
