The ultimate #throwbackthursday, today is the day in 1996 that Tiger Woods won his first professional tournament, the Las Vegas Invitational. Now called the Shriners, in honour of the Charitable movement who sponsor the tournament, it is this week’s event on the PGA Tour.
News of a possible return to action this week. Tiger’s close friend Notah Begay, in an interview on Sirius XM PGA Tour radio said that he was ‘fairly certain’ that Tiger would tee up in his own PNC Championship in the Bahamas in December to play with his son Charlie. The field for this event was released this week and Tiger’s name wasn’t on the list, but there are three exemptions available to be filled at a later date.
Notah, who was also talking about his own appearances on the PGA Tour Champions also teased that “Tiger might surprise everyone and we might see him one time this fall”
