Tiger Wood

Can Tiger win the remaining three Majors?

Tony spoke to former Reuters golf correspondent Tony Jimenez about Tiger Woods’ remarkable victory at the US Masters last Sunday: “What is there to stop Tiger from winning the other three Majors this season? I certainly believe in him. He’s got the strongest mind in the game and he is healthy again. It’s never been done before, although Tiger himself won four in a row between 2000 and 2001, but I think he’s got a great chance of pulling off a clean sweep in a single season.

Those words resonated with me again after I watched what happened when Garcia lost to Kuchar in the quarter-finals.

When Lightning Strikes…

Tony talked to former Reuters golf correspondent Tony Jimenez about the day a bolt of lightning sent an eight-iron flying out of his hands: “Seeing that clap of thunder shake up Nacho Elvira in the middle of the Spaniard’s backswing at the Maybank Championship in Malaysia on Sunday took me back to the most frightening incident of my career. It came in 1975, during the Western Open at the Butler National in Chicago. I hit an eight-iron and as the ball landed on the green, there was a bolt of lightning that lifted the club clean out of my hands and carried it fully 30 feet away. I was... Read more...
