Tiger Eyeing 2nd Billion

5 years after the infamous extramarital scandal that ripped him of grace and respect in recent years, Tiger Woods is reportedly foraying into next chapter of his career, with the goal of second billion dollars.

Although Woods have been frequently tortured with injuries in recent times yet the 38-year-old former #1 is steadily getting his fitness back and has startled everyone once again with his free swing at Hero World the previous week. However, nobody would deny that his golf was pretty rusty and he would still have to make a whole lot of improvements, though that hasn’t stopped the experts on Golf betting at bookmaker Williamhill.com from making him one of the favourites to hold the #1 spot come the end of 2015.

Off the golf course, Woods had a fiscal improvement with a tie up with new prime sponsor of the tournament & very soon he would be inaugurating his plush Bahamas resort where he is one of the business partners.

“The 2nd billion would be right there for Tiger”, stated Neal Pilson, the President of CBS Sports. 5 years back, in 2009, Tiger was the 1st athlete ever to reach up to $1 bn mark in his career earnings, as per one of the Forbes reports that was issued a couple of months prior to the disclosure of his scandalous personal life.

“That is long gone”, Pilosn continued. “That’s over. His very personality, his contacts, looks, the remaining skills & the very emotional bond which people still nourish for Woods is quite eminently marketable.”

Tiger, whose famous pursuit of Nicklaus’ 18 majors record has come to a halt since his winning of 14th back in 2008, revealed his grandest endorsement tie in 5 years. This is a 4-year contract with India’s Hero MotoCorp. The endorsement pact would be paying him $8 mn per year.

“Woods would go on working hard for his comeback yet both deep competition and age would make the win tougher for him”, said renowned sports business author Mr. Andrew Zimbalist.

Jim Furyk Wants Americans To Look At The Bigger Picture

Jim Furyk considers that Americans should look beyond the next Ryder Cup.

Furyk said that instead of focusing on the next year’s Ryder Cup the Americans should focus on winning the majority of the events coming up in the next ten to twenty years.

After the American team lost to Europeans in the latest Ryder Cup, Tom Watson, captain of the American team, had to face much criticism against his authoritarian captaincy style. Phil Mickelson, fellow American team member, in a press conference, overtly voiced critical views about Tom Watson’s captaincy and said that the captain had strayed from the winning formula that won them the Ryder Cup of 2008.

He said that he wants to look back to identify the mistakes they had made. Furyk is interested about what the players have got to say because it would be the time the players are heard as a group.

He said that there were exchanges of views between players regarding the flaws on their end that caused their defeat in so many games and how they could do better in the years to come. He is interested about hearing the views of officers, captains and players to get a picture from all angles.

Furyk and McIlroy are playing in the PGA Grand Slam of Golf that started yesterday. Ryder Cup takes place once every two years. European and American teams compete for the trophy each time at venues in US and Europe alternately.

The 2016 Ryder cup is scheduled to be held at Hazeltine in America. Furyk is of the opinion that PGA America trying to look at Ryder cup from a different angle is not necessarily a bad thing, there is a chance that the approach might bear fruit.

PGA America usually chooses the captain but now it wants to create a task force of former players and captains in order to find out and address the issues that are responsible for so many losses.
