Tiger’s 1am Wake-Up Call Preparations For Next Week’s Open At Royal Portrush

Fifteen-time Major winning Tiger Woods cannot be accused of suffering from any jet lag when he tees-up in next week’s Open Championship at Royal Portrush.

Woods will be celebrating his 21st showing in golf’s oldest major having made his debut as a then 19-year old in 1995 at St. Andrews.

Now aged 43, Woods is doing all he can to stay energised and that’s bizarrely involved staying awake in the middle-of-the-night Florida time to be fully acclimatised to a five-hour ahead time zone in arriving at Portrush.

Nike, and Woods’ pro career-long sponsor, highlighting Woods’ bizarre preparations ahead of the year’s final major.

“Hey Nike, it’s Tiger. Wake up!” Woods says into the camera.

“It is now 1 a.m. here on the East Coast. Why am I doing this right now?

And due to it being a corresponding 6am at Royal Portrush, Woods said:  “I will be playing the Open Championship there and in order to be prepared for the time change I’m getting up.

“If you want to succeed, if you want to get better, if you want to win, if you want to accomplish your goals, it all starts with getting up early in the morning.

“Have a great day!”

And talking of great days, it was contrastingly no fun yesterday (Tues) for those preparing for this week’s Scottish Open at The Renaissance Club to the east of Edinburgh.

Steady rain all day very much dampened getting a full 18-hole look at the Scottish course and in an event World No. 3 Rory McIlroy is making his European debut this season in the $7m event.
