  • Tiger Woods back to where his grand revival began

Capping a good year in which the legend returned to the higher echelons of the leader board, 14-time Major champion Tiger Woods has signed an exclusive multi-year global content partnership with Discovery and the PGA tour's GOLFTV streaming service.

"With Tiger joining us, I am confident that GOLFTV will be the new gold standard for comprehensive sports streaming, nourishing golf fans when and where they want to consume what they are most passionate about", Zaslav added.

His first event of 2018 was the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines, the site of his last major championship victory, the 2008 US Open.

This latest move represents a first-of-its-kind collaboration for Woods, and comes at the end of a memorable comeback season in which the star secured the 2018 PGA Tour Championship crown. His second was on the famous 16th at TPC Scottsdale during the Phoenix Open in 1997, a feat which sent wild the thousands of fans who annually line the rowdiest hole in golf, with a confetti of beer cups raining down.

Mexican police deploy around caravan migrants after day of chaos at border
The terms tear gas and pepper spray are often used interchangeably, with pepper spray routinely classified as a type of tear gas. Mexico has pledged to deport the 500 or so migrants that stormed the border on Sunday back to their home country of Honduras .

Woods meanwhile said his enthusiasm to represent the United States in team events was undiminished despite an unhappy return to duty at the Ryder Cup in September. Woods's most recent hole-in-one until last week was at the 1998 global tournament in Colorado. Now it's about trying to get everything to peak together like I did for those two weeks, to do it again four more times.

Woods would become the first "playing" captain since the inaugural event in 1994 when Hale Irwin captained the victorious US side.

Pawan Munjal, Chairman, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Hero MotoCorp, said, "Tiger is one of the greatest athletes in the history of sports".

"So, maybe going forward, just don't quite have the greens so fast or the pins so hard, but also as short as the golf course was playing, we should have made at least seven, eight birdies a piece". I didn't really imagine him being able to go flat out like I thought he was at that point. "Not quite hitting it as far, but I had the adrenaline going and, overall, I'm very pleased". Talking about what we care about: what's happening on the course, how to play better, how can I shoot lower scores tomorrow, how can I beat my friends?
