“This is a big week for me. I’m looking forward to getting out there and playing; competing. This golf course is set up more like the US Open than a regular tournament, but this is the playoffs. It’s supposed to be hard,” Woods said. “It’s supposed to be really hot the next few days and maybe break Friday night, so until then, it’s going to be a very, very difficult golf course.”MORE NEWS: Jewelry Merchants Robbed Outside Hotel In Naperville
