PGA Tour Players Hilariously Detail What It’s Like To Get A Text From Tiger Woods: “He Doesn’t Sugarcoat Anything”

Even PGA Tour professionals are enamored with Tiger Woods.

There’s no doubt that Woods is one of golf’s all-time greats. That’s why the 82-time winner on the PGA Tour demands so much attention when he tees it up.

Tiger is currently playing in the Genesis Open, a tournament that he hosts on a regular basis. He’s also debuting his new clothing line, Sun Day Red, after the contract with his longtime partner in Nike expired.

If I’m being honest, it’s weird seeing Tiger without the Nike swoosh on his gear. And if I’m being doubly honest, I’ve spent a lot of time already perusing the online store for Sun Day Red apparel.

Though Tiger enters a new era of his career, he’s still just as popular now as he was in his hey day. After many sustained injuries, both from golf and his car crash back in 2021, it’s a minor miracle that he’s still competing at the age of 48-years-old.

Despite his age, and the fact that he’s not playing in as many events anymore, you can still never count out golf’s GOAT. No one knows that better than his fellow PGA Tour competitors.

And after years of being rather withheld, Tiger has opened up a bit to the younger generation of golfers. A recent video that was posted by the PGA Tour highlighted that, and featured fellow pro golfers talking about how much it means to get a text from Woods.

This is what some of them had to say:

Jordan Spieth: “Typically, if you look down and you see it says Tiger Woods, it’s kind of the first one that you open.”

Rickie Fowler: “Tiger doesn’t really sugarcoat anything. He’s going to tell you how it is, whether you play poorly or you play well.”

Max Homa: “I used to chase him around golf courses trying to get an autograph, and now I’ve got his phone number. It’s just weird. I still think it’s the competitor. He likes jabbing at you and always (can) say something to make you feel bad.”

Justin Thomas: “At the end of 2017, my best season on tour, won five times. I just finished winning the FedEx Cup, won a major, and one of the first texts I had when I got done was Tiger and it was ‘Congrats, now do that nine more times, and that’s what I’ve done in my career.'”

So basically, he’ll open with some smack talk and then come with the advice? Check it out:
