Yesterdays round at Wyndham showed why Tiger is still essential to the sport. Fans went wild as the champ played his best round of the year.
All this hype around Tiger Woods makes golf exciting again! It goes to show that when he is playing well the world reacts.
According to Tournament director of Wyndham, Mark Brazil estimated officials had sold an extra 6,000 tickets for Thursday’s opening round and said he anticipates selling an additional 8,000 to 10,000 more on Friday and for the weekend if Woods makes the cut.
Golf Digest are claiming that the Wyndham Championship have printed a total of 49,000 extra tickets all thanks to Mr Woods.
FYI: Wyndham golf officials had to print 49,000 more tickets because Tiger Woods showed up this week…..I rest my case

Despite the likes of Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy and Jason Day leading the way for the new breed, Tiger Woods is still the central defining figure in golf.
The crowd at Wyndham yesterday looked like they were watching the masters, social media is going crazy and golf websites are all posting about Tiger. He is the man, and if he carries on playing like this it will do wonders for the game…
