Tiger Woods Hits Final-Round 72 at Memorial

Published

on

Tiger Woods revitalized fans with a strong showing to start off the Memorial Tournament, but cooled off considerably settling  for a spot in the back, 6 shots out of a playoff.

“I had some chances to shoot some good rounds this week,” Woods said after a final-round 72 (h/t ESPN). “Overall my game is where it needs to be heading into the U.S. Open and that’s something that’s very positive.

“I just need to hit better putts. This week I didn’t feel comfortable with my lines and my feel was a little bit off. Consequently I missed a bunch of putts. But I hit it really good this week, so that’s a positive going into Shinnecock, where ballstriking is going to be a must.”

Woods shot scores of 72-67-68-72 to finish at 9 under par. For 72 holes, Woods was -7.695.

“Yeah,” Woods sighed. “And if I just putt normally, I probably would be right up there with those guys and up there in the last couple of groups. Overall, if I just keep building on this, with how I’m hitting it right now, I’m in good shape for two weeks from now.”

Next up for Woods is Shinnecock and he will be working, at home, to prepare.

“I’ve had little building blocks along the way, and I keep getting a little bit better, a little bit more refined, and you start to see the results,” he said. “I’m starting to hit the golf ball better. If I just make a few more putts like I did earlier in the year, when I was putting really well, you put those two together, then we’ll have something.”

Aaron Stewart, the son of late gold great Payne Stewart, has been appointed tournament director of the Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions in Orlando, Florida.

“I’m really excited to be with the tournament side of things, back in the golf industry,” Stewart said (h/t ESPN). “And I’m still with the company I grew up with.”

“I didn’t play as much then. I was more into other sports,” Stewart said. “I’d always go out to the golf course, and I was around my dad when he was practicing. I was more into the golf cart, driving that around.”

While Stewart had intentions to play professionally, even going to his father’s alma mater SMU, he ended up taking a different path professionally.

“I ended up going a different route,” Stewart said. “I didn’t have the desire to play professionally. I was a little burned out, to be honest.”

Stewart will now take on the role of running a season opener for the LGPA Tour.n

“It makes each week really exciting for us to see if we’ll have a new person on the roster,” Stewart said Monday, one day after Cheyenne Knight won her first LPGA Tour event to qualify for the season opener. “It’s a great transition into the season. We’re thrilled to be in that position.”

Brooks Koepka

The offseason was a lot of work for Brooks Koepka, the number 1 player in the world golf ranking.

Koepka, who returns to competition this week in the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, spent the majority of his short offseason recovering from stem cell treatment on his left knee.

“My knee was bugging me from about March on,” Koepka said (h/t ESPN). Koepka said that the last four months were a “struggle”.

While Koepka never discussed his injury during the season, he said that his knee made it difficult to walk down hills and the ailment kept him from practicing.

Despite all of his accomplishments, Koepka still would rather win tournaments as opposed to awards.

“I don’t play for awards,” Koepka said. “I play to win tournaments.”

“LeBron has won only four MVPs,” Koepka said. “I’m pretty sure he’s been the best player.”

The Korean Tour has suspended Bio Kim, the current money leader, for three years after Kim made an obscene gesture to fans during the final round of the tournament over the weekend, according to ESPN’s Mark Schlabach.

While Kim, 29 owned a one-shot lead on the 16th hole of the DGB Financial Group Volvik Daegu Gyeongbuk Open in Gumi, South Korea, he became enraged after a cellphone camera went off during his downswing, and his drive ended up going about 100 yards. according to the Korea Herald report.

Kim reacted angrily, turning to the crown and flipping off fans before slamming his drive to the ground in an incident caught on camera and on live television in Korea.

Kim won the tournament to become the first two-time winner on the Korean Tour this season, but it is now marred by the incident.

This past Monday, the Korean Professional Golfers’ Association voted unanimously to suspend Kim for the next three years and levied a fine of $8,350 on him as well, stating; “Kim Bi-o damaged the dignity of a golfer with etiquette violation and inappropriate behavior.”
