TIGER WOODS – MICHAEL PHELPS TO THE RESCUE

Retired competitive swimmer Michael Phelps reportedly reached out to golf legend Tiger Woods in the wake of his DUI arrest.


A report by the New York Times shows that the revered Olympian called Woods when reports of his arrest broke out.

Phelps has been in the same situation twice, back in 2004 and in 2014. He understood what Woods would be going through amid his career struggles. One of Tiger Woods’ pal Notah Begay III gave his contact to Phelps as he felt the star swimmer could offer “honest and direct feedback” especially as someone who has been in the same situation and is of the same caliber as Woods.

Phelps struggled to manage scandals, pressure to remain a top athlete, anxiety and depression and all that. He has been trying to help out athletes who may be silently suffering from similar issues. Phelps labeled Woods DUI arrest a “massive scream for help.” The golfer was battling a lot and his toxicology reports shows five different drug in his system at the time. Woods has refused to thrown in the towel as he keeps pushing but he has met little success so far.

Golf Channel analyst Brandel Chamblee recently described Woods as unquestionably the most intimidating player when he was at the top of the PGA Tour. The last four years seem to have helped people forget what Woods was like as he continues to struggle with poor form and injuries. Hopefully he gets it together soon.

In the event, $7 million Dubai Duty Free Irish Open (DDFIO) Rory McIlroy revealed that, the fame golfer Tiger Woods taught him, to be ruthless.


This reveals of McIlroy is big as has won four major championships and presently the number one in the world. Outside the majors, the player has wins of nine PGA Tour as well as European Tour, for three times, He has won the Race to Dubai on European Tour for three times and in addition to all this, he is also the reigning winner of the FedEx Cup.

His wins owe the lessons give by Woods for being selfish and ruthless.

McIlroy said “The whole thing is not about not playing the best of your game, it is realizing to be okay to be a winner. It is absolutely fine to be a little selfish and think about just winning the game and nothing else.”

Tiger Woods’ ranking is a bad sight at the moment.


The American golfer slipped to No. 674 in the world – his lowest ranking since he turned pro. It is also the lowest ranking for the champ since he was a 19-year old amateur making waves.

Woods departed the No. 1 spot early 2014 as he tied 25th at the WGC-Cadillac Championship. Not long thereafter he had his first back surgery and he has continually battled it at 41 years. The same back pain has ruled him out for the rest of the year. As he continually misses rounds, his rankings continue to plummet.

He now sits on the 674th spot in the world rankings – it showed how long his reign was but also reminds fans how things have gone sour. In 1994, he was outside the top 700 in the world but he witnessed a meteoric rise before 1998 where he was the top ranked.

As we all know Tiger Woods is recovering from his back pain, hasn’t played golf much as of late.


Yet, his return to the game is still ambiguous, it is still not clear whether the winner of 14 majors will be seen playing golf soon. He is still making his mark on the game.

Recently, Woods and TGR Design together took an initiative and declared the helm, which is a 41-year-old will be a new 10-hole short course in the Bahamas. The course has been named “The Playgrounds.” It will sit on the Atlantic Ocean. And it will be joined by another course which is 18-hole. The sister course will follow the suit of the “The Playground”. It is shared by the Woods that the new courses will be part of Jack’s Bay, which is a private development.

Woods released a press release for making this announcement. In the release, he said, “Being the part of this spectacular project is an honor to me. It is like a paradise,” Woods said in a press release.

Tiger Woods lately appears more kind, more gentle, warmer and fuzzier which he was not known for such in years back.


He would rather look right through people on the golf course than relate to them when they are off it.

Road to winning 79 tournaments, with 14 majors, Woods was a lone wolf who never wanted anyone as he shattered records. Currently, he surprisingly sounds like someone who craves companionship with his colleagues. People feel it’s weird.

Woods, who shot a 1-over 73 in Thursday’s first round of the Hero World Challenge at the Albany Golf Club, happens to be the oldest player in this week’s field, more than 10 years older than six of his 17 fellow competitors. He clocked 41 on 30th of December.

If everyone could notice Woods since before he won the first of his 14 career majors in 1997, he hardly sounded like his old self in his pre-tournament press conference when he spoke with desire about missing the camaraderie among the players on the PGA Tour.

Tiger Wood is suffering from injury and wanted to take more rest.


He did not appear for Safeway Open and expected to make his comeback in the Hero World Challenge. The challenge will take place in the month of December 2016.

Tiger Wood was expected to make his comeback in the Safeway Open championship after injury, but because he was not happy with his game shape, he decided to remain outside. At one end his fan and team members are depressed with his decision to make a late comeback on the other hand, Wood’s team Vice Captain in United States Ryder Cup Rickie Fowler, backed his decision. He said “14 time major winner should take his time to make a comeback. If Wood is not happy with his game state, he can opt to remain outside and wait for more time.”

Wood has the biggest fan base and his fan want to see him on the ground as early as possible. However, they too want that Wood should return with same game form.
