Friendly terms between Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus
Woods cleared the doubts and said, “O.K., here’s the major misconception that people have all gotten wrong. It’s what was posted on my wall, about Jack’s records. It was not the majors, O.K… There was one on there. It was the first time he broke 40, the first time he broke 80, the first golf tournament he ever won, the first time he ever won the state amateur, the first time he won the U.S. Amateur, and the first time he won the U.S. Open.”
He added, “That was it. That was the list. It was all age-related. To me, that was important. This guy’s the best out there and the best of all time. If I can beat each age that he did it, then I have a chance at being the best.”
During the PGA Tour and LIV Golf controversy, before the commencement of the 150th Open Championship, the two were seen backing PGA Tour together. For the same reason, Nicklaus even turned down the $100 Million offer by LIV Golf. Tiger Woods, being a loyal player of the PGA Tour all over the years, is all set to start a partnership with Rory McIlroy in 2024.
The objective of this venture is to support the PGA Tour. The sport of golf is expected to experience some great advancements including virtual golf.
