When Tiger Woods first came onto the PGA tour, it was more common for golfers to hit the 19th hole than a gym. Woods dominated the competition to the point where they had to get in shape to compete.
In a press conference for the this weekend’s Genesis Open, Woods described his daily workout regimen from his 20’s, and it’s not hard to see why no one else ever had a chance:
“Well, I used to get up in the morning, run four miles. Then I’d go to the gym, do my lift.
Then I’d hit balls for two to three hours, I’d go play, come back. Work on my short game, I’d go run another four more miles, and then if anyone wanted to play basketball or tennis, I would go play basketball or tennis. That was a daily routine.”
Woods joked that he isn’t doing any of that anymore. Still, damn Tiger.
