‘I Never Watched Golf Until…’: Tennis, Golf World Rocked By Serena Williams Bizarre Tribute To Tiger Woods

‘I Never Watched Golf Until…’: Cherishing Their Long-Lasting Friendship, Serena Williams Gives Tiger Woods a Special Compliment



Tiger Woods and Serena Williams are easily two of the most recognizable names in the world, both having changed their respective sports for the better. In addition to their groundbreaking legacies, Woods and Williams have another thing in common.



These two sporting icons share a beautiful relationship, which has, over time, translated into a sibling-like bond. A new show called The Tiger Effect from PGA Tour Originals offers a deep insight into the enduring friendship between the two legends.



The Tiger Effect from PGA Tour Originals takes a deep dive into the golfer’s legendary career. A recent clip from the show shows various sporting heavyweights expressing their love and respect for the 15-time Major champion. One of them is the 23-grand slam-winning tennis legend, Serena Williams.



“When I hear the word GOAT, I think of people that are the best in what they do,” shared the tennis star in the new clip. The bond between Williams and Woods is an extraordinary one. She had previously referred to the golfer as her “big brother” after he was in a grave car wreck in 2021.



Williams also shared that she only started watching the sport after the 5-time Masters winner came into the limelight. She also spoke about how Woods’ introduced several firsts in the history of the sport. “I never watched golf until Tiger played, and I never really saw people pumping their fists.”



Since retiring from tennis, Serena Williams has shown off her own golfing prowess. Last month, the 41-year-old blew away actor Brian Cox of “Succession” fame with her skills on the greens. Meanwhile, Woods, who withdrew from the Masters earlier this month, is currently recuperating after a critical surgery.



Despite making a record-tying 23rd cut at the Augusta National, Tiger Woods withdrew from the 2023 Masters. His withdrawal came as a result of his aggravated injury. On Wednesday, the 47-year-old took to Twitter to reveal he had undergone a successful subtalar fusion surgery. However, a lengthy rehabilitation process means the golfer may be missing from action for quite some time.



As per Cleveland Clinic, it will take the golfer 6 to 12 weeks to recover from the surgery, following which months of rehabilitation will follow. This means fans may not get to witness Woods play at the upcoming PGA Championship in May. His appearance at the U.S. Open in June and the Open Championship in July is also unlikely.
