Tiger types holiday message
Tiger Woods reveals his ambitions for 2016 as well as a side to him that some didn’t know existed.
Tiger Woods has taken to his official website to communicate with his fans and the golfing world. Amongst a number of things addressed were his ambitions for 2016, his passion for Stanford and even his passion for Star Wars.
The former world number one seemed in buoyant mood in his latest post on his own personal website. Following Tiger’s comments at the Hero World Challenge, where he painted a bleak picture regarding his injury rehabilitation, it seems that Woods’ fans can now breathe a sigh of relief.
The 14-time major champion implied that a return to competitive golf in 2016 was highly likely when he wrote: “The thing I'm looking forward to the most about 2016 is getting back out there again. I've missed it, and I would like to do it pain-free… Hopefully, I'll be able to play my way onto the Ryder Cup Team.”
Whilst golf’s troubled star never graduated from college, he did attend Stanford University for two years and his affiliation with the prestigious Californian institution has been strong ever since.
“I am really looking forward to watching Stanford play Iowa in the Rose Bowl on Jan 1 on TV… Unfortunately, we're not part of the playoffs, but we're playing in the Granddaddy of them all, and hopefully we'll beat the Hawkeyes,” Woods gloated.
Tiger also let slip a childhood secret of his. The new Star Wars film has seemingly got everybody talking and Tiger is no different.
“I want to go see the new 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens.' I was a total geek growing up and had 'Star Wars' wallpaper in my room,” confessed Woods.
Despite the emergence of Golf’s new ‘Big Three’, the sport still needs Tiger Woods and if his holiday message is anything to go by 2016 could be a year to remember for all and sundry.
