WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va. – He owns 74 career PGA Tour titles and has won everywhere from Germany to Japan to Australia. Tiger Woods may have a been-there, done-that air about him, but he confirmed on Tuesday that he hasn’t been everywhere.
In advance of his debut at this week’s Greenbrier Classic, Woods claimed that this is his first-ever trip to West Virginia.
“I’m excited about being here,” he said just two days after winning the AT&T National in Bethesda, Md. “You know, the only connection I’ve really had to West Virginia has probably been either Sam Snead or my college roommate. Other than that, that’s about it. It’s fantastic to be here, and I’m really looking forward to getting out there.”
When pressed for information about that freshman year roommate, Woods would only allow, “He was from West Virginia. I’m not going to give his name because I’m sure you’ll research him. So we’ll let him be, but I’ll tell you what – the dude was smart.”
