Tiger still in the woods

Woods hit two public shots on Tuesday (18 April) - the first of which found water - at an event to announce that golf course design firm TGR Design would be building their first United States-based public links, Payne's Valley, in the Ozark Mountains near Big Cedar Lodge in Ridgedale, Missouri.

Much as with his other designs, Woods will also develop a nine-hole short course on property at the Big Cedar Lodge resort that will be geared toward novice golfers and children.

TGR Design has now designed 10 courses in different parts of the world, including two that have been completed and opened, Bluejack National outside of Houston and El Cardonal in Mexico.

The course plans to open in 2019. Woods, 41, quipped that he's closing in on eligibility for the Champions Tour. "I know that he's looking down from heaven today and is so proud". The real announcement of course, a new golf course.

Standing a few feet away from Tracey Stewart, the widow of the late Springfield native and World Golf Hall of Famer Payne Stewart, Tiger Woods said Tuesday he has a simple job ahead of him.

You will, at times, find it hard to decide if you should sympathise with her character or feel agitated by her authoritativeness. It is to their league then that Vidya Balan's Begum Jaan must rise, and that indeed is what makes this film interesting.

Tiger Woods, Johnny Morris and Tom Lehman sit in front of what will soon be the 19th hole at Payne's Valley.

The 18-time major victor was in Missouri for the announcement of the first public course designed by Woods' company TGR Design.

Woods still doesn't appear to be healthy after missing the Masters for a second consecutive year. It was really cool to go and play a country club because the greens were so nice and manicured and I had never seen anything like it.

"For me, I grew up playing public courses", said Woods, who was on site south of Branson, Missouri for the announcement. Johnny Morris, owner of Big Cedar Lodge and Bass Pro Shops, purchased that land in October 2013.
