Tiger Woods sweat

How many shirts will Tiger go through this week?

Tiger’s sweat is doing the rounds on socials once again.. But why does it happen?

 

We have seen it before… We all know that sweat has been an issue that Tiger Woods has dealt with a lot throughout his career.

You would imagine that with the making of his Sun Day Red clothing brand, that sweat-wicking technology might have played a part in discussions.

However, on the opening morning at Valhalla, the 15-time major champion proved that maybe the Sun Day Red gear isn’t that good at doing so…

As he stood on the first tee, in no more than 15 degrees of heat at Valhalla on Thursday morning, the peach shirt was not the best choice.

We’ve seen him switch polos as early as the third hole of a round and that’s with putting a fresh one on right before the start of his round.

At the 2018 PGA Championship, when Woods was wearing Nike clothing, he explained that he was changing shirts every three holes.

“Normally I change before the round,” Woods said at Bellerive six years ago.

“There wasn’t a place to change on the 10th tee. So I waited until we had a little port-a-John there.”

“In the summertime, yeah [I change shirts a lot]. As you know, I sweat a lot, and I lose a bunch of weight. I have the hardest time during summer maintaining weight.

“No matter what I eat, no matter what I drink, I just can’t maintain weight,” he added. “So this heat is one of the issues that I have.

“You know, the main thing about major championships is make sure you have enough energy. This is a long run. These are marathons. These are four long days. They’re slow rounds. They’re not quick. Certainly not under these conditions. And with the setup, the rounds are going to be slow.”

Woods had already changed at least once before getting to the 6th green on Thursday.. Just how many shirts will he go through this week in Kentucky?

Why does Tiger Woods sweat so much? Who knows! Follow us on X!

Mention a European country, and Matt will tell you which resorts make the National Club Golfer Top 100s: European Resorts list. He might even throw in who designed the golf course and how many rooms the hotel has got at each one…

Matt got into the game of golf from a young age, following his old man to the local golf club. He fell for the sport, and now can’t seem to go a day without thinking about how to improve his game (Thanks Dad!). Matt has been a member of Howley Hall GC in Leeds since 2020, and is just about managing to maintain a single-figure handicap. He likes to remind people that he once broke 75, but won’t tell people that it was on a shortened course during the winter.

He moved to Leeds after graduating from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Honours degree in Sports Journalism. Matt joined NCG after almost five years travelling the world with the Professional Squash Association, working on events in all four corners of the globe.

Matt currently plays a Cobra King LTDx driver and RadSpeed 3-wood. TaylorMade monopolise the rest of his bag, with a SIM UDI, M5 irons and both Milled Grind and HI-TOE wedges, along with a Monza Redline putter. He uses a Vice Pro Plus golf ball, because he’s a bit different…

Away from golf, Matt is a Manchester United fan, and a keen runner, having ran the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon (his first and possibly last), in May 2023.
