Tiger Woods Recreates Iconic Masters Golf Course at Home Since Event Is Postponed Due to COVID-19
"Our Magnolia Lane quarantine style," the golf star captioned the snapshot of his at-home recreation
Tiger Woods is going for a hole in one at his own at-home Masters.
On Sunday, the professional golfer, 44, shared a photo of his recreation of Magnolia Lane, the 330-yard paved entrance to the Augusta National Golf Club, which is home to the annual Masters Tournament.
The recognizable stretch of the Augusta, Georgia, course is flanked by large magnolia trees — which Woods simulated with small potted plants arranged in rows that lead to a yellow golf flag at the end.
“Our Magnolia Lane quarantine style,” he captioned the post.
Last month, officials announced that the 2020 Masters would be postponed due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
Woods, who won the green jacket last year, was looking to defend his title at this year’s event, which could be rescheduled for November 9 through 15, according to a press release.
“We want to emphasize that our future plans are incumbent upon favorable counsel and direction from health officials,” said Augusta National chairman Fred Ridley in a statement. “Provided that occurs and we can conduct the 2020 Masters, we intend to invite those professionals and amateurs who would have qualified for our original April date and welcome all existing ticket holders to enjoy the excitement of Masters week.”
Woods has found ways to keep practicing his golf skills while self-isolating with his family. Speaking to GolfTV earlier this month, the athlete said he has nightly putting competitions with his 11-year-old son Charlie Axel, with the winner getting to hold on to the green jacket for the next 24 hours.
“The fact that he has been able to earn it off of me, there’s no wins that are given in this family,” said Woods. “It’s been fun to see him tease me about beating me. He said, ‘It’s where it belongs.’ ”
