Masters 2019: Brooks Koepka says everyone would love to stop Tiger Woods from winning another major

Masters 2019: Brooks Koepka says everyone would love to stop Tiger Woods from winning another major Tiger Woods sits second all time in major championship wins with 14, but he hasn't won one since the 2008 U.S. Open. In that time, a new generation of golfers has come into the game and relishes beating Woods. There is not nearly the intimidation factor in Woods' game as there once was, and now players are actively trying to keep him from winning rather than standing in awe of him. "I think everybody in the field would love to stop him. I mean, I enjoyed stopping history," Koepka said at his press conference Tuesday at the Masters. "I had a great time.

Tiger Woods waking up ridiculously early for final round of the Masters

Tiger Woods waking up ridiculously early for final round of the Masters The Masters moved up its schedule for Sunday’s final round due to the possibility of severe weather later in the day, and Tiger Woods has given us an idea of just how much of an impact that will have on the golfers. Tee times will begin at 7:30 a.m. ET off the Nos. 1 and 10 tees, with the leaders teeing off at 9:20 a.m. Since the tee times are beginning so early, Tiger said Saturday that he will be waking up around 3:45 a.m. to get his routine started. How will Tiger prepare for his early tee time Sunday? "I'll wake up around 4 a.m., maybe 3:45 a.m… Start the process of getting this body ready and get after it." Anyone else going to wake up at 3:45 with Tiger tomorrow? — GOLF.
