During their hour-long interview and numerous topics for discussion, Alex got stuck when Tiger’s name came out of nowhere in some other discussion.
A bucket-list moment for him, Rodriguez said recalling watching Tiger Woods at the masters – “I did, the Masters. I saw Tiger win. Epic story and great timing. In an era when we need togetherness, we need to think more collective thoughts as an industry, and as a country. And it’s rare to see one Sunday where everybody in America is hoping for one thing, and they got it. And they celebrated, and that was fun. And you only get that in sports.”

Let’s hope Woods makes it back to the course and win the Masters again to give fans another chance at crossing an item off their bucket list.
