China’s No 1 Li Haotong said on Wednesday he didn’t realise how good Tiger Woods was – until he played with his golfing idol at the Masters last month.
Li, the world number 39, had a front-row seat as one of the greatest comebacks in sporting history unfolded – he was grouped with Woods for the first two rounds at Augusta.
“Tiger is Tiger,” Li told reporters. “Only if you have played with him can you just realise how good he is.”When I knew I was going to play with him, I was extremely nervous,” admitted Li, who was playing his second Masters and finished 43rd, 12 strokes behind the American.
“Once I was on the course I relaxed and played some good golf,” said Li, who has a best major finish of third at the 2017 Open Championship.
Woods went on to win his 15th major after an 11-year hiatus to complete a scarcely believable resurrection after injury, surgery and marital strife.( Read More ) [via @SuperSportTV]
