For Tiger Woods, love is as great as ever

When Woods missed shots piled up during his second round on Friday, a raw gallery followed his every move. Four men wore T-shirts depicting Woods & # 39; s mug shot from when he was arrested and charged with suspicion of driving under the influence in 2017. Other spectators shouted that Woods would work his way back into the fight.

It would not be. Woods shot 72 on Thursday and 73 on Friday, and was five left for the two days, missing the cut by a punch. That means less fan interest and less watching on television, because there are many people who identify themselves as golf enthusiasts, but they are real Tiger fans, such as Travis DeMarco, 30, from Westchester County, who followed Woods on Thursday. "The roar of the Tiger, I said earlier, we heard the roar, and that is worth the price of admission alone," he said.

He gambles on Woods at 18-1 to win the Masters, but if Woods does not play, DeMarco is probably only viewing the Sunday of a golf tournament.

It is unpredictable whether Woods surgically repaired back will last this season, or how large a toll age has reached. But with a Masters victory at the age of 43 – topped by picking up his son Sam and embracing his mother – his storyline seems complete.

Woods began his long-term residence on tabloid front pages at the end of 2009, when The National Enquirer reported that he had cheated his wife, Elin Nordegren, with a hostess at the nightclub. Two days later, after 2 hours, he dumped his Cadillac Escalade in a fire hydrant outside his house, and a stream of stories arose that contributed to Woods being a serious adulterous man

He and Nordegren later separated.

More damaging to his golf game, however, was his debilitating back pain and subsequent operations. He went on for ten years without winning a major tournament, often unable to even play. In 2017, shortly before the spinal merger procedure that revived his career, he told a fellow golfer: "I'm done."
