Follow my Ryder Cup Insta-story… I attended morning press conferences, watched the American groups tee off in their practice rounds, checked out the merchandise tent, went to more pressers, and then took a walk out to the practice areas and stumbled on the driving range, where Tiger Woods showed up shortly after.

I’m fairly certain that headline makes zero sense, and what’s worse, it is so basic that it makes me want to seethe in a bath of self-loathing sewer water. Okay, I can’t believe I just typed those words together because I am physically cringing and cowering at the thought. But in this rare occasion, I […]

Embed from Getty Images Tiger Woods got off to a rough start in Saturday’s third round of the Hero World Challenge, posting a four-over 40 on the front nine, but he finished strong, playing the last five holes at two-under to shoot three-over 75.

Embed from Getty Images Even Tiger Woods thinks punters need to chill out with their bets for him to win the 2018 Masters. Before Woods teed off at the 18-player, no-cut Hero World Challenge on Thursday, the odds for the 14-time major champion were set at 50-1 to win at Augusta National. By the time […]

Embed from Getty Images I have a lot of mixed feelings about writing this post for a variety of reasons, but since I’ve already been triggered on Twitter, I might as well expand beyond bytes limited to 140 characters. ESPN is reporting that Tiger Woods had Vicodin, Dilaudid, Xanax, Ambien and THC in his system […]

[*Update: I moved the mug shot after the jump because I couldn’t bear seeing it…] Embed from Getty Images It’s been more than 12 hours since I first heard Tiger Woods had been arrested in the wee hours of Memorial Day near his home in Jupiter, Florida, on suspicion of drunk driving, and I’m still […]

Embed from Getty Images No surprises here. In fact, I’m sure most of my colleagues pre-wrote their stories, as they waited for Tiger Woods to formally announce he would not be playing in the Masters. After all, it’s been fairly obvious that the situation with his back is rather serious and he would not be […]

I was starting to miss this tradition — it felt like it had been a while. I’m sure there have been others the past few months, but I obviously haven’t been paying close attention, as there are some more important, potentially life-altering late-night breaking news that happens almost daily now. However, we can’t blame tonight’s […]

Embed from Getty Images I will remember February 23rd as the day where WUP’s theme was “chill out, everyone” to all golf-related news. Perhaps it’s because I’ve been so preoccupied with the real news the past few months that my perspective is different than when my entire world was golf 24/7. Well, I loathe myself a […]
