‘He transcends the sport page to the front’ – Intense buzz for Woods return

Everybody is super excited to see how golf’s most iconic player in history, Tiger Woods, performs in his return this weekend. It was only a year ago that he struggled getting out of bed but he is back and the sport is simply far more exciting with him than it is without him.

In the build-up to Woods’ comeback, fellow players and celebrities have been commenting on his long-awaited return on social media and sharing their views on his current form and indispensability to golf.

Justin Rose played with Tiger in a nine-hole practice round in Albany alongside baseball legends Derek Jeter and Tino Martinez and he had this to say about Woods’ form.

“We’ve played today in a 20-mph plus breeze and it’s quite an unforgiving wind, but the quality of Tiger’s play has been pretty good,” said Rose.

“If [Tiger] wanted to test his game then these conditions, given as tough as they are, is a good test,’ added Rose. ‘He’s clearly driven the ball very, very well.”
