Unfortunately, Woods was unable to be there this year. Sidelined with his accident since February, the 15-time major winner has made few to no public appearances. Regardless, fans follow the event in numbers, supporting the Tiger Woods Foundation and their constant efforts to make the world a better place.

Of course, Woods could not go without thanking PGA Tour icons Max Homa and Bryson DeChambeau, who attended the event. Both stars were seen having fun, also speaking to everyone at the end of Day 1. While Woods was not physically present, fans seemed to be happy to see DeChambeau and Homa at the event.

Like usual, fans were happy to see Woods interacting, appreciating him for the event organized every single year. “Congratulations to you Tiger for your continuous noble acts of kindness,” wrote one fan, thanking him for making golf an inclusive sport. “Golf thanks YOU, Mr. Woods!” wrote another, thanking him for his humility off the court.

Another interesting point was people mistaking a man in the photo for Woods. Fans seemed to make fun of this misunderstanding, explaining that the 82-time PGA Tour winner is still back home in recovery mode.

 

A little about Woods’ Invitational tournament

The invitational, which has been around for a decade, is described as ‘three days of competitive golf, incredible networking, amazing entertainment, and once-in-a-lifetime memories who work to help the youth via various programs.’ “It’s just amazing for us to have a company like USLI support us and what we’re trying to do for the next generation of kids,” Woods said in a video shared a few days ago.

USLI helps the event fundraise to a greater level, which assists the Tiger Woods Foundation in helping more people.
