After playing seven of nine weeks following the Ryder Cup in Paris, Tiger Woods was due some rest after a long comeback season.
But first he had to celebrate a long-awaited victory. Woods won the Tour Championship on Sept. 23, his first win since 2013, but had to rush to Paris for the Ryder Cup immediately after. “I think we’re all going to sleep well,” Woods said that night, predicting what the celebratory flight would be like.
Although now it was time to honor his 80th career PGA Tour win on dry land, according to Justin Thomas’s Instagram post from The Woods Jupiter on Saturday night.
Thomas wrote, “Felt like a great night to break in the new shirts… fun night celebrating TW’s win in Atlanta! Us players and especially the game is golf is happy to have you back and healthy old man! Here’s to some battles in the future.”
Those shirts Thomas and Rickie Fowler wore (below) might seem familiar, as they are a new and improved version of what Zach Johnson passed out at the 2016 Ryder Cup at Hazeltine. Woods was an assistant captain that year, and Johnson provided the entire team with “MAKE TIGER GREAT AGAIN” shirts. Mission accomplished.
