Hero World Challenge set for Wednesday start

Adam Scott asks the impossible: Don’t cheer for Tiger Woods

Adam Scott asks the impossible: Don’t cheer for Tiger Woods

In the championship round of the Hero Shot at Baha Mar, Spieth took on Woods with each taking a final six shots at the target.

The Hero World Challenge begins on Wednesday and features all but one member of the USA team.

He did not say this troubling backdrop was behind his decision not to take part.

Trimper Marc Leishman will play his first national title since 2015 after losing eight kilograms after switching off after a disappointing second half in 2019.

But back to the dress rehearsal.

Tournament host Tiger Woods leads a stellar 18-man field at this week's Hero World Challenge, which has been moved forward to allow players time to travel to next week's Presidents Cup in Melbourne.

Woods didn't even need his sixth and final shot to beat DeChambeau. The U.S. Team beat the International Team 19-11 in the 2017 Presidents Cup in New Jersey. Woods said on Morning Drive. "It's a busy two weeks for the guys who are here".

In the end, if it were just paper, the Americans will win. "Just be in the competitive flow for two weeks, it's fantastic". "But then again, look at them, they're so much bigger and stronger and they're working out at an earlier age and their nutritional program is better, their recovery tactics are better".

Just don't get too insane, asks the Aussie.

Death Toll from Bloody Crackdown on Protests in Iran Rises to 208
Amnesty International said Monday it believes at least 208 people were killed in the protests and the crackdown that followed. Mansoureh Mills, an Iran researcher at Amnesty, said there was a "general environment of fear inside of Iran at the moment".

Dustin Johnson has withdrawn from the Hero World Challenge this week in the Bahamas because he wants to continue therapy and practice after recently undergoing arthroscopic left knee surgery, and plans to be ready for the Presidents Cup next week in Australia. "When I enter a tournament, I find a way to manage the stiffness and get the job done on the fly", Woods said.

Woods, whose career started with persimmon woods and steel shafts, believes - and laments - the way launch monitors and hi-tech drivers encourage players to swing harder without fear of the ugly misses spawned by clubs of yesteryear.

"Be frank with me", he said.

Woods could have earned $3m from appearing in the Saudi International in late January, with 2020 the second playing of the tournament. It will remain in a lock box. "You'll be ok. I'm excited to experience this for the first time".

There is one other minor thing Woods hasn't sorted out. "We are still trying to figure that out too".

With clubhead speed in mind, Bryson DeChambeau turned up at the Hero World Challenge sporting 20 added pounds of muscle. World No. 1 Brooks Koepka had to withdraw due to injury. Fowler planned to play in Mexico last month but missed it after picking up an illness on his honeymoon.

"I had some back problems that arose", said Leishman. This event really has been a kind of a springboard for me.

Scott is set to participate in the Australian Open and the Australian PGA Championship in the weeks around the Presidents Cup. To be able to sit there and listen to the jokes and the needling I received.

Of course, I would like to play Tiger and stick it to him.
