Tiger Woods, with no doubt, is a golfer extraordinaire, but he also exhibited some meteorological skills Wednesday.
At the minimum, Woods was paying close attention to the weather forecasters, who might not be able to hit 300-yard drives but are able to shed some light (or rain) on Thursday’s start of the Honda Classic at PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens.
Not complaining, but simply explaining, Woods said the course seemed somewhat wet and soft after he played in Wednesday’s pro-am, so he was studiously interested in the forecast.
“The fairways are a bit watery,” Woods said. “We’ve had probably five or six mud balls [Wednesday]. It’s so soft, we’re picking up mud balls, and if we get any more rain, it’s probably going to be even more of a factor. Obviously, it’s going to get cool, but it’s not going to dry it out enough.”
