Tiger Woods is ready for challenges at St. Andrews. Although many did not know if Woods would be at the Open, he decided to show up and seems motivated like never before. The competition is afraid of him, but they hope that he is not in the best shape.
Defending champion Collin Morikawa spoke about Woods and is happy that such a big name will be at the tournament. “I think any time I’m able to see him, any time any of us are able to see him, we have to appreciate it because we don’t know how many times he’s going to play here.
He might play one. He might play 10. Who knows? Any time you’re able to be around someone like that where you’ve idolized him for so long, it’s amazing,” said Morikawa, as quoted by skysports. “All this love that you guys give him, he wants to beat us so bad, and I do too.
I tell him that. I’m sure JT [Justin Thomas] tells him that every day. He’s such a competitor and that’s what’s awesome about him.”
Tiger Woods and his shape
Despite everything that happened to him, Tiger Woods does not give up on his greatest love.
He is focused on progress, he wants to go to the very end, but the question is whether he is 100% ready. Many are skeptical, but let’s wait. “Even though he’s gone through everything he’s gone through. I know he’s fighting it.
I talked to him a few months ago about everything he has to do just to walk every day, it’s amazing. It just shows you how much grit and determination he wants to have to get back on top and to win another event. I fully understand why.”
Justin Thomas also had something to say. “He reminded me many times that he planned on beating me here at this tournament for quite a while,” said Justin Thomas.
