Woods Roots at the Munis

RSS

The U.S. Open will be played this year at Bethpage on Long Island, a public course. Tiger Woods says its the ultimate compliment to a tournament which, ideally, anyone can enter and win.
 
Thats how I grew up ' on a muni course, said Woods. That is how I played the game for a number of years. Going to a country club ' its like, Wow, I am going to have some good greens to putt on; Im not putting on Velcro anymore.
 
I look back at my memories playing on public golf courses ' thats where I really learned to play (in Cypress, Calif.) I learned to play a lot of different shots. You have got to play a lot of different lies. You learn so much about the game of golf by playing on a public facility.
