Tiger Woods ready for scheduled breather after lamenting his Masters play

Tiger Woods is ready to exhale.

After weeks of hype and a return to the Masters Tournament after three years that were relatively disappointing, the 14-time major champion is looking forward to a break before resetting again.

Woods (1 over) finished tied for 32nd at Augusta National and moved to 88th in the world rankings.

Nepalese teen Pratima Sherpa gets private lesson from Tiger Woods

Pratima Sherpa is making the most of her time in America.

The 18-year-old aspiring golf pro from Nepal attended the weekend premiere in New York of a film made about her life learning the game while living in a shed alongside a golf course in Kathmandu.

On Tuesday she was in Florida -- for a lesson with Tiger Woods.

Putting woes continue as Tiger Woods fails to birdie at Quail Hollow

Woods failed to make a birdie in a round for just the 11th time as a pro and the first time since the final round of the tournament at Doral in 2014. A few weeks after that, Woods had the first of four back surgeries.

And from that same tournament, congrats to those heading to the bank this morning!

1 Jason Day $1,386,000
T2 Aaron Wise $677,600
T2 Nick Watney $677,600
4 Bryson DeChambeau $369,600

That's a HUGE payday for a couple of those guys, congrats!

Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson to be paired at Players Championship

For the first time since 2001, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson will be grouped together at the Players Championship and will be joined by Rickie Fowler at the PGA Tour's signature event this week.

In 2001, Woods famously made his long "better than most'' putt at the par-3 17th during the third round with Mickelson as witness. Woods went on to win the tournament just a few weeks before completing the "Tiger Slam'' with a victory at the Masters.

Tiger Woods, Jordan Spieth, rest of field way back of Webb Simpson at the Players Championship

Tiger Woods shot his lowest round of the year, a 7-under-par 65 at TPC Sawgrass that had the early Saturday morning crowd buzzing as he climbed the Players Championship leaderboard.

It was also the lowest score in Woods' 66 career trips around the Stadium course, where he won in 2001 and 2013. His previous best scores were 66s in 2000 and 2001 -- also during the third round.

Tiger Woods hopes staying on his 'dinghy' helps chances at U.S. Open

Staying on his yacht -- or "dinghy," as he kiddingly called it -- at a nearby harbor for this week's U.S. Open apparently has more advantages for Tiger Woods than the typical creature comforts that come with a 155-foot boat.

Woods noted the lengthy traffic delays in getting to Shinnecock Hills, something he won't have to be concerned about when the U.S. Open begins on Thursday.

NHL referee Garrett Rank's golf dream coming true at U.S. Open

Garrett Rank attempts to work golf into his schedule as he travels for his job to various cities throughout North America.

Being an NHL referee does not afford the opportunity often, with numerous trips to cold-weather cities in the winter months. Neither does lugging around his golf clubs in addition his hockey equipment.

Tiger Woods struggles with triple-bogey, two double-bogeys at U.S. Open

When he saw all the calamity play out before he teed off Thursday at Shinnecock Hills, Tiger Woods had a simple mantra for the first round of the U.S. Open: avoid the big numbers.

He was unable to do it.

Brooks Koepka becomes 7th player to go back-to-back at U.S. Open

One was about power. The other was about patience.

Brooks Koepka has a game for the U.S. Open no matter the course, no matter the test, no matter the circumstances.

He never lost hope when he began his title defense with a 75 and was 7-over par midway through the second round. He didn't lose his mind in the most punishing third round of a U.S. Open in nearly two decades.

Hall of Fame golfer Hubert Green dies at 71

Hall of Fame golfer Hubert Green, who won a U.S. Open playing portions of the final round despite a threat against his life, has died. He was 71.

Green won the 1977 U.S. Open and the 1985 PGA Championship in a career that included 19 PGA Tour victories and four on the seniors circuit. The PGA Tour announced that Green died Tuesday after battling throat cancer.

nobody follows Tiger Woods anymore, because his galleries are too big.

Joel Dahmen accuses playing partner Sung-hoon Kang of cheating

Joel Dahmen, who gained a brief bit of fame when he was paired with Tiger Woods on Saturday during the Quicken Loans National, was in the spotlight for a different reason following the final round of the tournament because he publicly called out another player for cheating.

Another big-name superfight could soon be coming to the Las Vegas area -- but this one would trade boxing gloves for golf clubs.

Golf stars Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson reportedly are trying to set up a $10 million winner-take-all match play event in Sin City that would be broadcasted live on television and would feature both greats wearing microphones.

If Phil keeps wearing those long sleeved straight jacket shirts - he'll lose!
Great idea that will do really well imo
No one has ever bet enough on a winning horse.

Tiger Woods to battle past struggles with slow greens at The Open

The golf course is fast, the golf ball is rolling forever and ever, and Carnoustie promises to see some unique strategy decisions this week during The Open.

That is true for Tiger Woods, who returns to the tournament for the first time since 2015 and for his fourth tournament -- and third Open -- at what is generally considered the toughest venue in the tournament rotation.
