This year the charities included several dealing with pandemic and social justice issues, including 4-CT, a nonprofit organization that funds statewide COVID-19 relief efforts such as food banks and child care for essential workers. "I'm not playing next week, and we'll see how this week goes and make a decision from there". There's only going to be a small amount of property that we can do, where we can alter golf courses.
"The greens have changed since the last time I've played", he said.
Four-time major victor Rory McIlroy snapped a club in frustration on his way to a disappointing 73 - seven birdies, four bogeys and two double bogeys including at 18 - over a course that surrendered low scores and birdies in binges to many players.
Last week I finally broke out of my betting slump, though the payday wasn't great.
Ultimately, Woods might simply decide to do what he has always done - work on his game at home the week prior to the Masters and eschew tournament golf. I like the odds for McIlroy, especially if you consider other factors.

Matthew Wolff, who is amongst a new generation of young stars including Collin Morikawa and Viktor Hovland emerging on Tour, is looking forward to playing alongside Woods in the opening two round for the first time in his fledgling career. "I've been tinkering or messing around with trying to get a little more speed; not that I could - I used it a little bit last week and I led driving distance, and I think I was No. 1 in strokes gained off the tee".
After taking second place at the U.S. Open and a T2 finish at the Shriners Hospital for Children Open, Wolff could easily be at the top of the leaderboard going into this weekend.

"The whole idea is to be ready in a few weeks and whether or not that's playing one more event, whether that's Houston or just playing here at Zozo, just making sure that I'm ready for Augusta", he said on Tuesday. "Yeah, I was pretty excited - nervous, as well".
Woods claimed a three-stroke victory in Japan previous year to equal Sam Snead's long-standing record of 82 career wins.
