Nicklaus: If healthy, Tiger 'probably will break my record'

Nicklaus: If healthy, Tiger 'probably will break my record' "They stopped asking me for a while." Jack Nicklaus took a few years off from fielding questions about whether Tiger Woods would ever break Nicklaus' record of 18 major wins. But after Woods won the 2019 Masters for his 15th victory at a major, the conversation started back up, and Nicklaus believes the record is in reach - barring one big unknown. "Who knows how long his body is going to stay together," Nicklaus said Tuesday at the Memorial Tournament, the PGA Tour event he hosts. "(When) you've had as many operations as he's had ... He may be solid enough that it's all right, and if he is, I think he probably will break my record.

Attorneys for Tiger Woods are asking a Florida court to dismiss the wrongful death lawsuit filed by the parents of a 24-year-old bartender who was employed at a restaurant owned by the 15-time major champion.

Woods and his girlfriend, Erica Herman, were listed as defendants in the lawsuit filed in Palm Beach County last month. Nicholas Immesberger died in a single-car accident last December and had an estimated blood alcohol concentration of .256, more than three times the legal limit.

Tiger cards 2-under 70 in 1st round of Memorial Tournament

Tiger cards 2-under 70 in 1st round of Memorial Tournament Tiger Woods posted a 2-under 70 in Round 1 of the Memorial Tournament on Thursday, his first appearance since missing the cut at the PGA Championship. Looking healthier than he did at Bethpage Black, Tiger played his first 13 holes at even par with one birdie. He then kicked into another gear for his closing stretch on the more difficult back-nine of Muirfield Village Golf Club. Woods birdied three of his final five holes - but added a bogey - to get to 2-under, five shots behind the clubhouse leader, Ryan Moore. Tiger, a five-time winner of the Memorial, hit 11 of 14 fairways while averaging 292.4 yards off the tee.

Attorneys for Tiger Woods are asking a Florida court to dismiss the wrongful death lawsuit filed by the parents of a 24-year-old bartender who was employed at a "Mr. Woods has no connection to the events described in the complaint," Woods ' lawyers wrote in the motion to dismiss filed Tuesday.

In May, Woods said, "we're all very sad that Nick passed away" when asked about the lawsuit. "It was a terrible night, a terrible ending."

The lawsuit alleged Immesberger was over-served for about three hours after his shift at The Woods in Jupiter, Florida, before the fatal accident.

"Mr. Woods has no connection to the events described in the complaint," Woods' lawyers wrote in the motion to dismiss filed Tuesday. "According to the Estate, Mr. Woods is an investor in the entity that owns the restaurant that served the decedent. Mr. Woods, however, does not work at or own the restaurant, nor was Mr. Woods present at the restaurant on the day in question."

Barry Postman, one of Woods' lawyers, wrote in the filing that Immesberger's family "misunderstands the Dram Shop Act." Many states, including Florida, have Dram Shop Act laws that can hold those who serve clearly intoxicated patrons liable for damages.

Tiger Woods dismissed from wrongful-death lawsuit.
Tiger Woods has been dismissed from a wrongful-death lawsuit involving an employee of Woods' Jupiter, Fla. restaurant. On Friday June 21, attorneys for the parents of Nicholas Immesberger voluntarily dropped Woods as the defendant from their pending case. "The decision was clearly appropriate and reflected the fact that Mr. Woods should not have been included in the lawsuit in the first place because he had nothing to do with Mr. Immesberger’s death," Barry Postman, managing partner of the legal firm Cole, Scott & Kissane, told Golf Digest in a statement.
