The golf world uses Twitter to share news and offer a glimpse into players’ lives and thoughts. In a new daily, GolfTalkCentral feature, we will offer up the best tweets from the past 24 hours.

You can nominate your favorites from the day as well by re-tweeting the best 140-character dispatches with the hashtag #GCTOTD.

Annika Sorenstam was on Golf Channel Monday from the Tavistock Cup. The uniform she donned apparently threw off some spectators.

@annika59: Wearing Lake Nona blue. Was just asked by a spectator where are the toilets? I Must look like an official...


Participating in the event, G-Mac thought Feherty teed off on Ian Poulter.

@Graeme_McDowell: Next up was @IanJamesPoulter. @Fehertwit got stuck into old Poults. Don't think he knew he was on air. #oops


Tweeting me will almost always get you on Tweets of the Day, especially when talking about the equipment headline of Monday.

@BobEstes: @RyanBallengeeGC @TaylorMadeGolf obviously bought @AdamsGolfInc to get my good buddy @KennyPerryGolf back on staff! #goodmove

Perry left TaylorMade after two decades to join Adams Golf this year.


Pros offer swing tips on Twitter, including this gem from Christina Kim.

@TheChristinaKim: Best tip of the day, other than my daily 'KEEP YOUR HEAD DOWN' is remembering chicken wings belong at Hooters, not my golf swing.


From experience, sometimes your significant other lets you do something to feel like a champion.

@CaroWozniacki: I am embarrassed to say that I lost to @McIlroyRory in table tennis 11-9 in the third and deciding set!


And sometimes as a dad, you let your kids have a little fun. See: Ben “Cool Dad” Crane:

@bencranegolf: My son's favorite part of traveling? Riding the Sun Mountain 'horse' (bag) at the airport.

Woods' 2018 schedule coming into focus ... or is it?

By Golf Channel DigitalDecember 16, 2017, 5:46 pm

Two weeks after his successful return to competition at the Hero World Challenge, Tiger Woods’ 2018 schedule may be coming into focus.

Golfweek reported on Saturday that Woods hopes to play the Genesis Open in February according to an unidentified source with “direct knowledge of the situation.”

Woods’ agent Mark Steinberg declined to confirm the 14-time major champion would play the event and told GolfChannel.com that Woods – who underwent fusion surgery to his lower back in April – is still formulating his ’18 schedule.

Woods’ foundation is the host organization for the Genesis Open and the event supports the Tiger Woods Learning Center in Anaheim, Calif.

The Genesis Open would be Woods’ first start on the PGA Tour since he missed the cut last January at the Farmers Insurance Open.
