Woods shoots 'mixed-bag' 72 in Round 2 of Memorial Tournament

Woods shoots 'mixed-bag' 72 in Round 2 of Memorial Tournament Tiger Woods carded an even-par 72 in Round 2 of the Memorial Tournament on Friday, starting the day slow out of the gates but still managing to make the cut by two shots. "It was just kind of a mixed bag," Tiger said after his round, according to Golf Channel's Tiger Tracker. "I just couldn't get anything going." Woods dropped a shot on his first hole and didn't climb back into red figures until his second birdie of the day on No. 11. After adding another circle to his card on the par-4 13th, Tiger gave it all back with an ugly double-bogey seven.

Tiger Woods and girlfriend Erica Herman, the general manager of Woods ’ Florida restaurant, face a wrongful death lawsuit brought by the parents of a 24-year-old bartender of the Jupiter establishment. Nicholas Immesberger had an estimated blood alcohol concentration of .256 — more than three times

Tiger Woods has been named in a wrongful death lawsuit involving a former employee at his Florida restaurant, The Woods .

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.

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.

Tiger Woods has been hit with a lawsuit saying he' s responsible for the death of an employee who crashed while driving drunk. CNN reports that the lawsuit accuses the staff at The Woods of overserving alcohol to its bartender Nicholas Immesberger, 24, after his shift ended at 3 p.m. on

Wrongful death lawsuit against Tiger Woods faces stiff challenge because of 'habitual drunkard' law . That inelegant term is repeatedly used in the wrongful death lawsuit filed Monday by the parents of Nicholas Immesberger, a bartender at The Woods in Jupiter, Florida, who was killed in a

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.
