Tiger Woods Not Far From Everybody's Thoughts at Augusta
TIGER WOODS may not be at Augusta but he remains firmly in the thoughts of those who are as he recovers from the injuries suffered in a car crash in Los Angeles in February.
Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas have both spoken about Woods, with whom they are in regular contact.
McIlroy visited Woods at his home in Florida.
"In his family room he's got his 15 major trophies and I said, 'that's really cool, where are all the others?' said McIlroy. "And he was like, 'I don't know. My mum has some, a few are in the office, a few are wherever’. That's all he cared about [winning majors], so how easy must that have felt for him to win all the others? He talked about these are the four weeks that matter, so the weeks that didn't matter he racked them up at a pretty fast clip.
"If all he cared about was four weeks a year, the other stuff must have just been like practice. That's a cool perspective to have, right? That's all I could think about on the way home - and I was glad he was OK too!"
Thomas says he will miss Woods' presence this week and has been regularly visiting the five-time Masters champion. "I went over and saw him a couple times last week and I try to go over a couple times during the week whenever I'm home and see him," said Thomas. "We texted Friday morning and he said it's kind of starting to set in. He's bummed he's not here playing practice rounds with us and we hate it, too."
The 27-year-old has also offered to help his fellow American in any way he can. "That's just what I want to do for him, is just be like, 'dude, I'll do anything you want'," Thomas added. "If you need me to help out with your kids, I can do that. If you're craving McDonald's and you want me to bring it over, dude, I don't care. I'm here for you and I'll help out however I can."
