Stricker and Tiger have helped each other with their games for a long time (it’s true — I remember them working together at Firestone in ’11).

Fresh off his 76th career PGA Tour victory and 19th World Golf Championship title, Tiger Woods joined ESPN Radio with Scott Van Pelt and Ryen Russillo to chat about how the 14-time major winner believes he still has his best years ahead of him, the importance of playing healthy, beating Steve Stricker after getting a buddy lesson from his pal, and understanding the microscope that world no. 1 Rory McIlroy is learning to handle.

You can take a listen here, but the good folks at Sports Radio Interviews have taken the time to transcribe the interview, so you have the option of reading it. (I know, options! Those are good.)

Tiger stayed on his yacht last week in Miami

Well, I can think of a million-plus reasons why Tiger Woods had a better weekend than just about anyone else, but here’s another: Olympic champion skier Lindsey Vonn, who has reportedly been dating the golfer for the past few months, spent the *entire* week with him on his yacht, Privacy, docked at a marina in the Miami area, according to the Daily Mail.

I never left, b**ches!

Congratulations to Tiger Woods, who captured his second win in 2013 and 76th career title on the PGA Tour. Oh, and we’re back with By the Numbers after a temporary hiatus due to the pesky real world intruding. On the way to his victory at the WGC-Cadillac Championship, Tiger obviously put up some impressive numbers, but we’re going to try look at several that you (probably) haven’t heard repeated ad nauseum (100 putts total), as well as a glance at a few other players.

Whoops, I forgot to post this last night. It’s hard to keep track of all the social media channels these days, but good news is I’m in the process of a massive site redesign to bring WUP into 2013. Woot!

Anyway, Luke Elvy and I broadcasted our weekly wrap-up of last week in golf, and of course, it was mostly Tiger, Tiger, Tiger. (I’m sure you’re all shocked!) Check it out above and since this is a weekly program, we’re trying to come up with a catchy name for the show. Suggestions? Send ’em along! Thanks.

And of course, as always, we still have our training wheels and we’re open to constructive criticism and feedback. What would you like to see incorporated? Too long? Too informal? Keep doing what we’re doing? Let us know.

Rory

Rors’ growing pains

Rory McIlroy felt the heavy expectations and pressures as the world’s No. 1 golfer weighing down on his 23-year-old shoulders and he had a meltdown, resulting in a bad decision in the heat of the moment. He likely thought the world was closing in on him and he just wanted to escape when he walked off the course last Friday at the Honda Classic.

As (I) expected, McIlroy was open and candid, admitting to his mistake and taking responsibility for his abrupt, un-Rory-like withdrawal in his press conference on Wednesday morning at Doral.
