WHAT’S NEXT IN THE WORLD OF SPORTS

Change is the price of survival. In the global uncertainty we are all facing, we need to take the necessary precautions and focus on what matters most.  In response to the accelerated spread of the global COVID-19 pandemic, sport leagues and annual tournaments worldwide are being canceled and postponed minimizing risk and the spread of the virus.

It’s been too long since I played with @SadhguruJV. He is a great peacemaker, but he came to beat me on the course! I'm continuously inspired by Sadhguru’s steadfast desire to make the world a happier, more loving place. Wonderful sharing a round with a dear friend & role model.

There are so many “ifs” in golf and in life. For example, how many majors would Hogan have won if he never went to war? Or what if I had signed for the Hogan company? I enjoyed discussing those “ifs” and others in my latest episode of The Player Series. https://t.co/zau2L6kSLw

It was wonderful to see Rory back in the winner’s circle this past weekend. He is simply too talented to not be winning more. As we know, golf continues to challenge us and nobody is immune from those challenges. I look forward to seeing Rory back at his dominant best!
