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.
