Tiger Woods has revealed he hasn’t slept in three days since his breakup with skiing star Lindsey Vonn.
Returning to the PGA Tour for the first time since finishing in a tie for 17th in the Masters, Tiger Woods’ mind wasn’t completely on the task at hand as he played a practice round on May 5 at TPC Sawgrass ahead of May 7 start of The Players Championship.
Tiger Woods’ three-year relationship with Lindsey Vonn mutually came to an end Sunday, May 3. And this time of the year is always difficult for Tiger Woods, whose father, best friend and mentor, Earl, passed away on May 3, 2006.
“This three-day window is really hard,” Tiger Woods said.
“I haven’t slept. These three days, May 3rd through the 5th, is just brutal on me. And then with obviously what happened on Sunday, it just adds to it.”
Tiger Woods returned to the driving range after speaking with the media and has Wednesday to sharpen his game that was clearly off as he played nine holes with Jason Day.
Ranked No. 125 in the world, Tiger Woods had a two-way miss going, losing balls on both the first and ninth holes. He also said he lost three other balls to water hazards.
Tiger Woods won the last time he played here, in 2013 when he captured his second Players title. Last year he missed the tournament after having back surgery.
