‘Greg has done some things that I don’t think (are) in the best interest of our game,’ Woods said prior to the Open Championship.
‘I know what the PGA Tour stands for and what we have done and what the Tour has given us, the ability to chase after our careers and to earn what we get and the trophies we have been able to play for and the history that has been a part of this game.
