“He told me to get my finger out of my ass and win this week.”
Business Insider – Tiger Woods won the Arnold Palmer Invitational yesterday to reclaim the No. 1 spot in the world golf rankings. This morning, he sent a text message to fellow Nike golfer and former world #1 Rory McIlroy to get him motivated for the next few weeks.
From Jason Sobel at Golf Channel:
I love this move by Tiger. Old Tiger was keen on getting inside of all his opponent’s heads. Of course he had the skill to out-match everyone, but the way he psyched everyone out made it even more cruel. No one stood a chance. Then his accident came, he started worrying more about himself and less about golf, and everyone thought Tiger could be had. Not anymore, guys. Tiger’s back. He’s forgot everything from 2 years ago. He has Miss Vonn working his personal life and he’s working his professional life. 6 wins in his last 20 starts. New #1 in the world. And text messages talking trash to his best competition. You know all Rory is going to be thinking about is this text. All weekend he’ll be out to prove a point to Tiger. Don’t be surprised if he finished 10 strokes behind the eventual winner. Tiger will just be laughing at home, enjoying sex with his new girlfriend, getting ready for the Masters.
