Last we saw Tiger Woods in Augusta, Ga., he brought us one of the best feel good, comeback stories of the last decade. After years of internal struggle, health issues and public ridicule, the man in the Sunday red silenced the doubt and won his fifth Green Jacket in front of his children and mother.
He was set to defend his Masters title in April, but COVID-19 had different plans. The postponement pushed the 84th playing of the most prestigious tournament in golf to this week, with the first round teeing off at 7:00 a.m. EST on Thursday. As is tradition, the previous year’s winner sets the menu for the Champions Dinner after Tuesday’s practice round, and Woods has had his mind made up for awhile. Back in February, the 44-year-old hinted at what might be served.
“Born and raised in Southern California, and with it playing a part of my entire childhood, we’ll be having steak and chicken fajitas, plus sushi and sashimi out on the deck,” he said. “We’re still debating milkshakes.”
The menu this evening resembles his original thoughts.

When it was announced that the tournament would not be played in the typical timeline, Woods held his own dinner at home with close friends and family. He shared a picture from the evening and his hairline was noticeably receding.
Seven months later, it would appear that Woods has had some help in the follicle department.
It might be the angle, it might be the lighting, it might be hair plugs. Who is to say?
