Tiger Woods withdraws from the Hero World Challenge 2022 citing to plantar fasciitis.

Tiger Woods was set to return to the course this week at the 2022 Hero World Challenge, which his foundation runs, after a more than four-month sabbatical since last teeing it up in the 2022 Open Championship at St. Andrews. Instead, owing to an injured right foot, Woods has been forced to withdraw from his own event and postpone his comeback to golf.

“As part of my preparation and practice for this week’s Hero World Challenge, I acquired plantar fasciitis in my right foot, which makes walking tough,” Woods stated. “I’ve chosen to withdraw this week and focus on my hosting duties after checking with my physicians and trainers.”

Woods will be replaced in the event by Sepp Straka, who is rated No. 29 in the world, increasing the number of top 30 players in the field from 17 to 18.

Despite the fact that the damage relates to the same leg that was surgically treated in a vehicle accident in February 2021, it is unknown if tension on that joint caused the plantar fasciitis.

The Hero World Challenge was the first of three events that Woods was anticipated to compete in before the end of 2022. Woods still intends to partner with Rory McIlroy against Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth in the newest edition of The Match on December 10, and he still expects to be fit enough to compete in the 2022 PNC Championship, which begins on December 17.

In Woods’ absence, the Hero World Challenge will be a small-field, no-cut tournament including Jon Rahm, Xander Schauffele, Scottie Scheffler, and previous year’s champion Viktor Hovland.

December was set to be a very hectic month for the 15-time major champion. He was scheduled to compete in seven tournaments over the following three weeks, after only nine competitive rounds all year. That number is now down to three: the 12-hole match with McIlroy, Thomas, and Spieth, and two 18-hole matches with Charlie in Orlando, where Tiger needed a cart a year ago.

In the long run, this is not particularly significant. Even after playing three majors in 2022, Woods’ comeback was always going to be up and down, with continual pauses and starts. This is unlikely to change expectations for how many times we’ll see him in 2023. It is expected that he will compete in the majority, if not all, of the major championships and, as he has stated in the past, possibly another tournament or two here and there.

Scottie Scheffler named 2022 PGA Tour Player of the Year after four wins over Rory McIlroy

After the midpoint of the 2022 season, Scottie Scheffler is in absolute heat. While that winning pace may have slowed in recent months, Schaeffler capped a dream season by winning the 2022 PGA Tour Player of the Year award on Saturday. The 26-year-old Scheffler was recognized by his peers — the award will be voted on by PGA Tour players — with four victories over Rory McIlroy and Cameron Smith, who were present Strong World Top 12 with four wins.

Schaeffler won the Phoenix Open, the Arnold Palmer Invitational and the WGC-Dell Technical Match Play before winning his first career major at the Masters. Winning four out of six, Scheffler became the highest-ranked golfer in the world and ended the season with more money on the PGA Tour in a single season than any other golfer in history ($14.05 million). Dollar). Among other things, he took home $5.75 million in FedEx Cup cash and $4 million in top 10 prize money on the Comcast Business Tour for a total of $24.8 million for the season.

McIlroy and Smith received 89 percent of the vote, and his award was announced Saturday on ESPN’s college game day. Former Texas golfer Scheffler was honored ahead of the Longhorns’ second-week college football game against No. 1 Alabama.

A three-time winner of that honor, McIlroy has also won three times on the PGA Tour this season, at last fall’s CJ Cup and that summer at the RBC Canadian Open in June, and wrapped up in dramatic fashion. He passed Scheffler for $18 million that season in the Tour Championship. The latest win in a huge tournament feels like the culmination of an incredible season for McIlroy, who has finished in the top eight in all four majors, including the Masters (No. 2), PGA of America Championship (8th place), US Open (T5) and Open Championship (3rd place). Between tournament earnings, FedEx Cup winnings and Comcast Business Top 10 prize money, he added $28 million to his bank account.

“Scotty Schaeffler got Player of the Year,” McIlroy said after beating him at the Tour Championship. “Without a doubt. You know, it’s fitting for him to end his breakout season with a FedExCup title. I think he…deserves it maybe more than I do. He’s had an incredible season. He today Didn’t play his best and I played well and took advantage of that.

“Scotty will have more chances to win the FedEx Cup. A player, a competitor. Even better. Love his family. It looks hard. You really don’t know what you’re talking about 18 The greens, because he had a great year, but he’s coming back, he’s a great player, and I told him it’s definitely not going to be the last time we have a fight like this on the golf course.”

Smith, who eventually won those Opens, was four shots behind after 54 holes and shot a sparkling 64 in his final 18 at St Andrews, skipping McIlroy in the process. Smith also won The Players Championship and Championship, finishing tied for third at the Masters in the process. However, we won’t see him on the PGA Tour next season as he translates Open wins into a big deal with LIV Golf.

SCOTTIE SCHEFFLER RORY MCILROY CAMERON SMITH
Events 25 16 18
Wins 4 3 3
Top 10s 11 10 7
Major wins 1 0 1
Major top 10s 1 4 2
Official money $14.1M $8.7M $10.1M
Strokes gained 1.7 (5th) 2.1 (1st) 1.4 (11th)

Each of the first three PGA Tour Player of the Year winners is both FedEx Cup and Tour Championship winners, and that streak is now coming to an end. However, since the awards were first established, Schaeffler has achieved new milestones, becoming the first person to win the Korn Ferry Tour (2019), PGA Tour Rookie of the Year (2020) and PGA Tour Player of the Year titles Golfer of the Year 1990.

“On behalf of the PGA Tour, congratulations to Scotty on an extraordinary season and unprecedented achievement,” said PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan. “Without a doubt one of the biggest compliments a player can get is the support from his peers, and the amount of speech Scottie’s season has been both dominant and consistent for members. Despite seeing him on the pitch over the past few years It’s gratifying to develop on the PGA Tour, but we’re equally grateful to Scotty for serving as an ambassador for the PGA Tour and golf. Young stars like Scotty at the helm are some of the best players on the PGA Tour for many years.”

Rickie Fowler and longtime caddie Joe Skovron part ways

Rickie Fowler is in the FedExCup playoffs for the first time in two years, but this year he will be out with a new caddie.

Fowler is now looking for a new caddie after parting ways with longtime joes Crowlon after last week’s Wyndham Championship.

Golf Channel’s Todd Lewis was the first to report the news.

“It happened Friday afternoon after we ended up in Greensboro,” Rickie Fowler told Lewis. “I told Joe I really wouldn’t go into detail about who made the decision or who made the decision or anything. We’ve always been a team, we’ll always be, and he’s like a big brother to me. Friendship And everything comes first. No discomfort or anything like that, just thinking it’s probably the best option at the moment, but that doesn’t mean we won’t rekindle the flames in the future or anything like that, but I know it It was tough for both of us.”

Rickie Fowler and Skovron are one of the most iconic player-caddie duos of the past decade. Scullon has been Fowler’s caddie since turning pro in 2009 and has bagged all five of his PGA Tour victories, including Fowler’s biggest career win at The Players in 2015.

Together they climbed to No. 4 in the world, but Fowler has since dropped to No. 167, his worst finish since early 2010. Fowler has qualified for just one major in 2022 and finished 23rd in the PGA Championship. He has not played in the Masters or U.S. Open since 2020.

Fowler told Lewis that he currently has no long-term plans to replace the bench. Cobra’s Tour Operations Manager, Ben Schomin, will fill the void at this week’s FedEx St. Jude Championship. Chauming was also Bryson DeChambeau’s backup caddie at the 2021 Rockets Mortgage Classic after DeChambeau and Tim Tucker parted ways before the first round.

Fowler missed the playoffs last year but finished last this year.

“Sometimes there’s a little tweak here or there’s a good thing, and that’s what we ended up coming up with,” Fowler said. “That could be a good thing.”

Tiger Woods rejects $700-$800 million offer to join Saudi-backed LIV golf series, CEO Greg Norman says

Norman had previously told The Washington Post in June that Tiger Woods had been offered a huge amount of money to participate, but he declined. Norman said Woods’ proposal was “surprisingly large; we’re talking about high nine figures.”

The controversial tour has seen some of golf’s biggest names leave the established PGA Tour and the DP World Tour for big money.

Big Winners Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau, Brooks Koepka, Sergio Garcia, Luis Ushutzen, Graeme McDowell, Charles Schwarzer and Martin Keimer have both joined Breakaway Ventures, which provides huge sums of money to players.

The LIV Golf Series is backed by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund (PIF) — a sovereign wealth fund chaired by Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman — and has pledged a total prize of $250 million.

However, it has drawn criticism from many players, including Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods, that players have abandoned golf’s traditional institutions and accepted funding from a country with a poor human rights record.

Ahead of the July Open in St Andrews, Scotland, Tiger Woods said he disagreed with the players who left.
“I think they turned their backs on something that would have gotten that position,” said the 15-time Grand Slam champion.

“Some of these players may never get a chance to play a major. That’s a possibility. We don’t know yet. It’s up to the body of all majors to decide. But it’s a possibility. “There are players who will never get a chance to play a major, never get a chance to experience that here, down the Augusta National fairway.

“But what do these guys do to keep the money, what’s the motivation for practicing? What’s the motivation for going out and making money in the dirt? They just get a lot of money first and then play a few games and play 54 holes. Impact music, with all these different vibes.”

Woods added: “I just don’t understand the long-term positive impact of this move on many of these players, especially with the LIV organization not earning World Ranking points and the majors changing the criteria for their entry into the event.

“It will be sad to see some of these young kids never have the opportunity to experience and experience the things we have the opportunity to experience, to go to these sacred places and to play in these tournaments.”

Woods even criticized Norman himself for his role in splitting the tour. “Greg has done something that I don’t think is in the best interest of our game and we’re going back to what is probably the most historic and legendary place in our sport.”

On Sunday, Henrik Stenson won the third event of LIV Golf’s inaugural season in Bedminster, New Jersey.

Nearly two weeks after he was stripped of his Ryder Cup captaincy for his participation in the series, the 46-year-old Swede was 11 under to win the 11-under-par at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster. $4 million.

He accepted the trophy along with former U.S. President Donald Trump, who attended and owned the stadium during the three-day competition.
