If you follow golf at all you’ve probably heard the news . . . Tiger Woods is back! The legendary G.O.A.T has now returned to golf yet again after having had one back surgery for the past four years in a row, undergoing the latest just under 11 months ago.
This most recent return to golf following an operation however seems to be a bit more promising than the last. Having only played one event in 2017, the Farmers Insurance Open, and being cut after Day 2, his 2018 starts have been much more prominent. In his last 3 tournaments he’s finished 12th, T2, and T5 last weekend at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.
If you’re a Tiger fanatic like myself and merely watching Tiger fills you with the inspiration to get out there and play, you will definitely want to check-out one of the Hawaii courses that he’s experienced some of his most notable career moments.
Poipu Bay Golf Club is a must play when visiting Hawaii. It is situated on the southern coast of Kauai, also known as Hawaii’s "Garden Isle".
This breathtaking, must-play Robert Trent Jones Jr. designed course is backed by lush emerald mountains and contains one of the most exciting back 9 holes there is, which is located at cliff-top and along the ocean. Of his 106 professional victories (including 14 majors and 79 PGA Tour wins) seven of those came from winning the PGA’s Grand Slam of Golf that was hosted here at Poipu for 13 years.
Us Tiger fans are hopeful that this time his comeback is real, and that he’ll begin to play like his old self again when he was dominating the field like his years playing at Poipu Bay. No matter what, we will remain loyal and are confident that Tiger will be able to continue this great streak and can’t wait to see how he does in two weeks’ time at Augusta!
