Tiger Woods Design Is Busy, Now Planning on Having Another Beer in Mexico
First Dubai, then North Carolina and now Mexico for Tiger Woods Design.
The man isn't really adding extra winks to his normally hectic schedule after surgery, announcing his third course design just 65 miles south of San Diego in Ensenada. The course will be called Punta Brava or Wild Point for you sad, English-only folks and will be a 6,835-yard par-70 in a high-end community.
"As soon as I got on site, I was in," Woods said Tuesday as he stood next to a giant rendering of Punta Brava at a press conference at the swank Hotel Bel-Air.
"We tried to incorporate the viewscapes and rock formations to make sure that you felt like you were part of this amazing peninsula the entire time you play," he said. "That was a challenge and one of the reasons it took us just over 20 routings or so to finally get it right. But I think we got it right."
The course will be on the ocean and will be amazing so I'm sure everyone will want to play it but can't. It will be like Augusta National only without all the trees and with the ocean. Wait, maybe it would be like Pebble Beach. Nope, that's public. Oh, I give up, Wednesdays are terrible.
