Armed with a beanie on a Dodgers neck warmer, Tiger Woods struggles against the cold

[Sports Seoul | Correspondent Jang Kang-hoon] It is a war against the cold. The returned ‘golf emperor’ Tiger Woods (48) faces another variable.스포츠토토

The video released by the American Professional Golf (PGA) Tour on social network service (SNS) on the 16th (Korean time) contains the process of Woods leaving the practice round. Woods, who left the dorm wearing a black padded vest before dawn, hurriedly put on a neck warmer with the LA Dodgers logo on it as soon as he felt the cold wind. He was fully armed (?) with a black Nike beanie over his hat.

On this day, the maximum temperature in the LA area was only 17 degrees Celsius. It is said that the baseball team gathered in Tucson, Arizona, further south than LA, to prepare for the World Baseball Classic (WBC) was embarrassed by the snow that had fallen overnight. California is facing measles due to abnormal temperatures, such as issuing warnings to prepare for cold and strong winds.

Cold weather can be burdensome for Woods, who is struggling to manage his condition due to plantar fasciitis and ankle injuries. Flexibility of muscles and joints increases in warm places, but in cold weather, they have no choice but to shrink. Woods will return to the PGA Tour after 7 months through the Genesis Invitational (total prize money of 20 million dollars), which opens at Riviera CC.

If you pass the cut, you have to walk 72 holes for four days, and the pressure increases when the temperature is low. Woods also said, “With the help of many people, his condition has recovered to the extent that he can participate in the tournament. He needs to be managed carefully because it depends on how quickly he recovers after a round,” he said. It is also read as meaning that he will not overdo it because it is a tournament in the nature of a so-called ‘rehabilitation round’ ahead of the Masters in April.

Moreover, Riviera CC is a place where Woods and evil ties are deeper. Woods, who made his PGA Tour debut through the 1992 LA Open, participated in 14 tournaments held at Riviera CC, but never won. Runner-up in 1998 was his best result on the Riviera. The day after the closing of the 2021 Genesis Invitational, he was on the operating table due to a major traffic accident. It is analyzed that the background of saying “the goal is to win” at the official press conference contains the will to break the bad relationship with Riviera.

Woods will return to the group with world number 1 Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland) and former world number 1 Justin Thomas before the recent WM Phoenix Open. Golf fans around the world are paying attention to whether Woods’ shot against the strong wind as well as the low temperature has returned to the way it was before the accident.
