Off the Tee: Tiger’s DUI, Kevin Kisner’s Unlikely Win, Bernhard Langer Makes History
The one-time most dominating player on the PGA Tour continues to make more news away from the golf course than he does on one these days.
Tiger Woods was arrested near his Jupiter, Florida home, early Monday (May 29) morning, on suspicion of driving under the influence.
Woods was later released, and apologized, blaming an unexpected reaction to prescription medication, not alcohol, for the incident.
In this edition of 'Off The Tee', I talk with Joel Harrington, from 4 Deep Golf blog, about Tiger's latest troubles and what this might mean for his chances of every playing competitively again.
We also discuss:
- Kevin Kisner's second career win, a victory at Colonial, beating Jordan Spieth, Sean O'Hair, and Jon Rahm.
- Spieth started Sunday five shots off the lead and shot a bogey-free five-under 65. He actually made a strong bid to shoot 63. Rahm's bogey on three cost him a shot at a playoff.
- In England, Alex Noren won the BMW PGA Championship, shooting a final round 62 after starting the day seven shots back.
- Bernhard Langer made history, winning the Senior PGA Championship. He's the first player to win the career 'super slam' - capturing all five senior majors.
- One one the most popular non-majors in this week - The Memorial. Expect most of the top names, except Rory McIlroy, who is rehabbing after he re-aggravated an old rib injury.
