Stalking Tiger

I was on assignment for the Washington Post and also UPI this past week covering the Quicken Loans National golf tournament in Potomac, Maryland, near Washington, D.C.

A large part of the week was chasing Tiger Woods around the golf course with heat in the mid-ninties and high humidity. It was pretty damn miserable.

Tiger, who is in the process of getting his game back to what it used to be before multiple back surgeries, is also the host of the event.

He shot 70, 65, 68, 66 to finish tied for 4th place.

Here are some of the images from Tiger’s week.
