Tiger Woods, no matter the venue, is always the fan favourite, and the same can be expected this week in his debut at Chapultepec Golf Club. But one of Woods’ playing partners will see plenty of love from the galleries as well.
Tiger Woods was finishing up the par-3 16th at Riviera Country Club when playing partner Peter Malnati jogged ahead to the 17th to get his tee shot off on the par 5. Doing so meant the group could finish the hole if they wanted to even after the horn sounded for darkness in the third round of the Genesis Open.
Tiger Woods has repeatedly stated his intentions of serving as a playing-captain for this year’s U.S. Presidents Cup team. If Woods accepts dual responsibilities, the positions of his assistants take on a greater light.
