April 18, 2024

Tiger Woods was one of the PGA Tour Player Directors who met with Yasir Al-Rumayyan in the Bahamas a few weeks ago. At the time, several reports indicated that Woods and Al-Rumayyan even played a round of golf the day after the meeting.The closeness of the Masters Tournament and Tiger Woods’ participation in it put press interest in that event on hold. Now that Woods has finished his four rounds at the Augusta National Golf Club, the Bahamas meeting is back on world golf’s public agenda.

After finishing his fourth round of the Masters, Tiger Woods met with the press as usual. A journalist asked him if he thought they were closer to a deal with Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund (PIF) after meeting with Al-Rumayyan, and this was Woods’ answer:

“I don’t know if we’re closer, but certainly we’re headed in the right direction. That was a very positive meeting and I think both sides came away from the meeting feeling positive.”

In the same interview, Tiger Woods was asked about his preparation plan for upcoming tournaments. He said:

“Just keep lifting, keep the molds going, keep the body moving, keep getting stronger, keep progressing and hopefully the practice sessions will keep getting longer.”
