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.

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. EVERYONE TAKE A DEEP BREATH — it’s going to be OK! […]

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 […]

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 […]

Embed from Getty Images Pardon the absence and the late take, but caught a bad virus a few days ago and I’ve been laid up — the only positive part of all this is that I have been unable to follow the ongoing national (and global) reality horror show since Wednesday. (So I might as […]

Embed from Getty Images We’ve been in the twilight zone for quite some time now — at the very least 11 days now, but I’d argue far longer. I know we’ve truly entered golf’s WTF era when I heard the news (first reported by ESPN.com’s Bob Harig) that Tiger Woods took a COMMERCIAL FLIGHT — […]

  Tiger Woods is preparing for the next chapter of his life, career — whatever you want to call it. After withdrawing from last week’s PGA Tour 2016-17 season opener the Safeway Classic three days after he committed, along with the Turkish Airlines Open, which he had said last month he also hoped to play […]

Embed from Getty Images A few months ago, a colleague and I mused over how Tiger Woods was spending his time. At that point, we weren’t sure if he was practicing or playing or how much he was able to do either because of his nagging back injury. We joked he was playing video games […]
