Commentary, Golf, Tiger Woods -

Watching Tiger Woods emerge from the massive crowd that swarmed him as he approached the 18th green of Sunday’s Tour Championship event is one of the most memorable images you’ll ever see in sports. That crowd appeared overwhelmingly white. But that doesn’t mean African-American fans who didn’t show up at the East Lake Golf Club […]

SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. — It’s just after 9 a.m. on Wednesday morning, just less than 24 hours before Harold Varner III is scheduled to tee off in the U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills.

Harold Varner III finished at 12 under par at last weekend’s Players Championship, tying for seventh place. It was the 27-year-old’s first top-10 finish in nearly a year, and yet most of the attention from non-hard-core golf fans wasn’t on him winning $331,375. The internet was raving about his shoes. While sinking seven birdies during […]

Jordan Miller, Shane Caldwell, The Masters, Tiger Woods, Undefeated Athlete of the Week -

America wants to see Tiger Woods — the fist-pumping, uber-competitive dominator — in all his winning glory again. Perhaps desperately so. That Tiger, who’s sometimes standoffish with fans and surly with the media, isn’t that guy anymore, not physically and perhaps not emotionally either. The Tiger Woods whom America watched in droves at the Masters […]

Golf, Sean Foley, Tennessee State Tigers, Tiger Woods -

Sean Foley is woke. It’s a characteristic that’s unique among golf instructors, who most commonly cater to the wealthy and teach a game that is by its very nature exclusive. That’s why a conversation with Foley is intriguing, perplexing, thought-provoking and inspiring all at the same time. Most people know he coached Tiger Woods as […]

Tiger Woods’ most recent return to golf involved a painfully long 10-month wait. His path to the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas, which begins Thursday, was lined with physical and psychological rehabilitation, false starts, reduced expectations and, finally, a tee time. Yet, for some of the people once close to Woods, the wait can […]
