Max Homa defends Tiger Woods trophy
Max Homa returns to the Genesis Invitational as the defending champion. Last year, his childhood hero Tiger Woods presented him with the trophy. “It feels like a Magic Mountain roller coaster. In college, I started low in freshman year and went really high.
Then it stayed up there for a year and then it got very low. And then it’s been kind of like a steady climb over the last three years, I would say. The biggest difference is probably my mentality and my understanding of myself as a golfer.
And as a person, too. Obviously some physical things as well, but the most dramatic change is just that I understand how I play golf now and play courses based on that knowledge,” he told Golf.com.
Max Homa, statements
“I don’t think there are a lot of rivalries, for the most part.
Yeah, everyone here knows how hard it is to do anything. I mean, you look at one of the greatest rivalries of my life in any sport, Tiger Woods-Phil Mickelson, and they’ve played together a handful of times. Yeah.
So it’s so difficult here to have a real rivalry.” He is one of the most successful sportsmen of all time, as well as one of the richest in the world. As for the former, Tiger Woods is still present: 15 major tournaments won, 110 professional tournaments. , the most successful golfer in the history of the sport.
Statistics that explain why he managed to stay at the top of the world rankings for 683 weeks (including 281 consecutive) and especially because in 2014 he became the first athlete in the world to have crossed the billion dollar mark.
Astronomical figure which also justifies the fact that Tiger Woods can afford a yacht like the Privacy, a real fairy tale boat. And obviously, we’re talking about something that was expensive. If you imagine a luxury yacht and a little comfort on board, then Privacy has it.
48 meters long, with a total area of 600 square meters, this yacht was purchased by the golfer in 2004. Equipped with five cabins that can accommodate a total of ten people, it also has four quarters for nine crew members .
Tiger Woods usually calls it “my dinghy” even though everything looks like a dinghy: with a cruising speed of 18 knots, it also has an onboard gym where the golfer continues to train. Woods, in fact, prefers to stay on this yacht during tournaments held in New York.
With cherry wood interiors, Privacy also boasts a three-person elevator, a huge jacuzzi, big enough to seat eight, and the inevitable cinema room and bar area. The little extra of this mega yacht is provided by the area that Tiger Woods wanted dedicated to scuba diving: this also explains the presence of an (inflatable) decompression chamber and an area dedicated to filling bottles. ‘oxygen.
The luxury is also complemented by three jet skis and two scooters for short shore excursions. Obviously, all this has a price: privacy costs 17 million euros and its annual maintenance amounts to 1.7 million euros.
