'It's a funny story': Tiger Woods jokes about Brooks Koepka's snub at the Open
- Published: 16 July 2019
- Tiger Woods has shrugged off concerns about his lack of golf heading into this week's British Open, saying he needs to carefully manage the remaining years of his career.
Woods said his Masters victory in April took a lot out of him and he went on a two-week family vacation in Thailand after finishing tied for 21st at the US Open last month.
In a news conference ahead of the Open, the 15-times major champion also joked about Brooks Koepka ignoring his request for a practice round, and when asked if he had sampled the local beer in Portrush he laughed and hinted he had sampled too much in the past.
