Hello from the Albany in the Bahamas! It’s partly sunny, mostly cloudy and rather breezy, but it’s still around 80 degrees. It’s only been “cold” in NYC for a couple of weeks or maybe a month, and I’ll probably regret saying this, but the humidity actually felt nice.
It’s been a rather quiet day at the Hero World Challenge — there were around a handful of guys practicing, but the big event took place mid-morning when tournament host Tiger Woods held his press conference. (I’m not 100% certain, but I’m pretty sure the last time he had an official (solo) presser was in February ahead of the Dubai Desert Classic, and that unfortunately didn’t turn out well (which was IMHO predictable).
The biggest takeaway: Tiger Woods seems genuinely really happy. He was gregarious, all smiles and only once did he give a one-word answer. The past seven years for Tiger has been a rollercoaster and I’ve definitely seen the good, the bad and the ugly, but I don’t recall the last time he was this affable and open. He gave lengthy, thoughtful and honest (as far as I could tell) answers and sometimes even went beyond the scope of the original question.
