According to Yahoo! Sports, the 45-year-old Tiger Woods is still following the goings at the 2021 PGA Tour Championship even though the event will be played without him. And, why wouldn’t he? He is a true professional, after all. And, the PGA Tour Championship is the last event of the most recent PGA tour season. That definitely makes it an attention-getting competition.
With a tweet he shared on Wednesday, Sept. 1, Tiger Woods reminded the golfing world that even though he would not be competing for this 2021 championship crown, he is still one of the greatest golfers in history.
“Good luck to everyone this week at the @playofffinale. Lots of good memories at East Lake!” Woods commented on Twitter, He also shared a video montage of some of his greatest moments competing in the long-held PGA Tour Championship.
The video montage shared by Tiger Woods shows footage from when he won the PGA Tour Championship in 2007. That year, he turned in a dominating performance. In 2007, he scored an incredibly impressive 28 on the front nine. The social media video also shows footage from when Tiger Woods won the PGA Tour Championship in 2018.

There are 30 golfers who will battle for the PGA Tour Championship crown this week.
The tournament is taking place in Atlanta, Georgia at East Lake. Tiger Woods is no stranger to this East Lake golf course. He won the PGA crown while competing at this Georgia course in both 2007 and 2018. Woods won another PGA crown during 1998. He did so at the Champions Golf Club in Houston. That year was only the second year Tiger Woods had competed professionally in the PGA.
The PGA Tour Championship has been held at East Lake in the past. In fact, according to Yahoo! Sports, the famous tournament has been held there every year since 2004. Other venues were the home to the tournament during its history.
Accompanying the tweet is a 58-second video that shows highlights from his win in 2007 – where he carded a front-nine 28 – and his win in 2018. That year, Tiger Woods caught the attention of many people. On that list was NFL star Larry Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald was so enthralled with what the golf star was doing on the course that he halted a media interview in order to watch Woods complete an eagle on the course.
