You may recall a few years ago when Jack Nicklaus mentioned in passing under the Big Oak that he and Tiger had never really had many long talks. Not for more than a minute or two, to be exact.
Now it seems the Happy Tiger who flew onto the Masters practice a new man was also chatty at the Champions Dinner. Tiger was so giddy he even committed to the Memorial Tournament, Nicklaus told reporters Wednesday.
Rob Oller reports on this and Jordan Spieth also giving a verbal commitment to The Memorial.
Woods and Nicklaus chatted about family and golf form during their visit at Augusta National Golf Club.
“It’s as much conversation as I’ve ever had with Tiger. ... He’s been struggling. We talked a little about that, but we talked more about his kids and events that are going on and what he’s been doing with his preparation,” Nicklaus said. “I’ve said many times, ‘He’ll be fine.’”
