Tiger Woods on if he'll play the Masters: 'God I hope so. I’ve got to get there first.'

  Tiger Woods on if he'll play the Masters: 'God I hope so. I’ve got to get there first.' A fifth back surgery kept Tiger Woods out of the field at this week's 2021 Genesis Invitational, but it didn't keep him away from his hosting duties. Woods, 45, made his PGA Tour debut at Riviera Country Club in 1992 as an amateur at just 16 years old and…Woods, 45, made his PGA Tour debut at Riviera Country Club in 1992 as an amateur at just 16 years old and has served as the Los Angeles-area tournament’s host since 2017. During Sunday’s final round the 82-time winner on Tour appeared with Jim Nantz on the CBS broadcast to talk about his Tiger Woods Foundation entering its 25th year, what he’s been able to do while recovering from back surgery and what he’s seen this week from outside the ropes.

During Arnold Palmer’s 50 years playing professionally on the PGA Tour, he made 726 tournament starts and played a total of 2,553 rounds. He won 62 titles, fifth most in tour history, while finishing second or third 38 and 27 times, respectively. For those celebrated efforts, the seven-time major champion’s career earnings totaled a mere $1,861,857.

To understand how laughably low that is, consider that the winner on Sunday of the Arnold Palmer Invitational will earn $1,674,000 for his efforts. That’s 89.9 percent of Palmer’s career prize money while playing in .002 percent of the rounds Palmer logged in his career.

  Jordan Spieth's first competitive round at Bay Hill was a very typical Jordan Spieth round Jordan Spieth's first competitive round at Bay Hill was a very typical Jordan Spieth roundDespite his recent form, the consensus this week—at least among those who have a financial interest in the Arnold Palmer Invitational—was that Jordan Spieth would hit a mini road bump in his comeback tour. Having never played in the tournament before, plus carrying a faulty driver, spelled doom at Bay Hill, where there’s trouble everywhere, especially off the tee.
