Hellmuth and Woods talk about Tiger’s practice round at Southern Hills on Thursday in the video. He flew to Tulsa to scout the golf course to evaluate his body before committing to play at this year’s PGA Championship venue. At the same time, they reflect on Woods’ comeback at the 2022 Masters at Augusta National Golf Club.

Phil asks Woods, “Tiger they have f**king, this is unbelievable. They have helicopters following you around.” To which Woods replied, “They did, they did for six holes.” Phil also asks Tiger, ” What’s happening in Tulsa.” And the 46-year-old had an epic reply to Hellmuth. Woods says, “Not a lot.”

After talking about his scouting mission. Phil also talks about Woods’ Masters’ performance.

He said, “I was so happy to see you back at the Masters and then you shot one-under on day one. And I’m like, Yes. He’s gonna win this thing.” Tiger added, “Yeah, I tried. I tried and fortunately, I got a little tired. The leg kind of gave out a little bit on me, but I fought and I fought all the way.”

Apart from the funny comments, the thing to notice is Woods seemed calm. Tiger was smiling and appeared to be in a good mood and fresh. We hope to see the five-time Masters champion back with the same enthusiasm and smile at Southern Hills on May 19th.
