Hero World Challenge: Tiger Woods shows off amiable personality ahead of latest comeback

ipl-news-01 copy

During Tiger Woods’ most dominant days on the PGA Tour, he presented a surly figure, closed off from the world, rarely giving more than a phrase during interviews.

Now 41 years old, and making yet another injury comeback this week at the Hero World Challenge, Woods’ demeanor has changed. His excitement to be back on the golf course can barely be contained, and he seems to be enjoying everyone’s company.

“I would like to have them (current stars) feel what some of my past guys had to go against all those years,” Woods said Tuesday in a press conference. “I’d like to have them feel the same way. I mean, I was pretty good.”

Woods was cheerful and playful throughout the press conference, beaming at the opportunity to not only play golf competitively again, but play it in general.

Current stars such as Dustin Johnson, Rickie Fowler and Justin Thomas have poked fun at Woods this week. Thomas, the defending FedEx Cup winner, is looking forward to playing with Woods during the first two rounds, but that’s not the only thing he looking forward to.

Everyone will be anxious to see how Woods performs this week, but his ability to get through the tournament pain free will be the most important thing.
