Tiger Woods reveals plans for the 2019 Open Championship at Royal Portrush

Woods tees-up in the Bahamas struggling with a ‘bug’ picked-up from son, Charlie, while his oldest child and daughter, Sam, is home from school with ‘pink eye’ – a form of conjunctivitis.

“It’s just one those things where children pick-up an illness from their school buddies and it’s carried to members of the family.

“I’ve been struggling with a temperature of around 102 but then like a lot of these things, it’s got to get worse before it gets better.”

What did delight Woods was securing a first hole-in-one in nearly 20-years and just two days after losing $9m to arch-rival Phil Mickelson.

“In my best years I’ve ever had hitting the golf ball and I’ve never had a hole-in-one,” said Woods.
