Tiger Woods Has Been Asked About Playing Golf With President Trump

McIlroy has finished tied-fourth and tied-fifth in his last two starts

This is the closest PGA Tour event to where he grew up in Orange County.

"It is certainly a love-hate relationship", Woods said Wednesday after getting through his pro-am ahead of the rain.

The World Golf Championships consistently attract the most elite and global fields of the year, with 40-50 of the top 50 players in the Official World Golf Ranking teeing it up in the four annual events.

That was in 1999, a few months before the first major overhaul in his swing took root.

That was 20 years ago, when he finished second to Ernie Els.

Woods, who confirmed he would be playing in next week's WGC-Mexico Championship, also insisted he embraced the challenge of playing alongside Rory McIlroy for the first two rounds.

The 23-point comeback over the final 10 minutes of the second half was the largest of Coach K's career - but it wasn't the best. That's because the Cardinals led by 23 points with 9 minutes, 5 seconds to play, but ended up losing 71-69.

Woods gets another crack in what figures to be cold, wet conditions because of another storm system that is likely to linger through the opening round.

The long-running PGA Tour event has made a decision to group Woods and McIlroy together for the second year running, making it the eighth time in Tour history the two golfers will tee it up alongside each other. "I mean, that's really all I'm looking for when I'm going somewhere". "So hopefully I can do a little bit better this year". Woods' 80th win also pulled him within two of Sam Snead's PGA TOUR record of 82 career victories.

"I played well that day, I shot 64 so I enjoyed the way I played".

"So we've always had that type of enjoyment of competing against one another and to see what he's done or see what he did last year in Mexico, at 47 years old, gave me confidence that I could somehow do it maybe last year and I was able to finally culminate my season with a win just like he did earlier in the year".

Dustin Johnson, victor of the Saudi Arabia International, was also asked about his time there.

So does Bubba Watson, the defending champion and a three-time victor, though his main infatuation is that it's not far from Hollywood and all the movie stars.
