Davis Love III doesn’t watch golf on TV. It’s not that he doesn’t enjoy the action, it’s just that, like many professional athletes, Love doesn’t really do inactivity.

If Love isn’t playing golf he’s normally practicing or getting ready to practice, but late Sunday he enthusiastically embraced the role of couch potato. “Oh, I’m going to watch it all,” he gushed.

Love wasn’t alone. With Tiger Woods seven holes away from history at the Zozo Championship the entire golf world settled in for the finish.

Leading by three strokes, Woods was on the cusp of tying Sam Snead for most PGA Tour victories. It was must-see TV even for those who set out just past daybreak at Narashino Country Club to complete the weather-delayed first-year event. (READ MORE) by Rex Hoggard | Golf Channel

For Tiger Woods, it all comes down to consistency.

Surgeries on his knee and back and a crisis in his personal life have cost him opportunities to play his best golf over the past decade. But when he’s been healthy and free from off-course distractions, he’s always found ways to win. And now, he’s won as much as anybody on the PGA Tour.

e inaugural Zozo Championship marked Tiger Woods’ first career PGA Tour victory in Japan. While he plans to return next fall to defend his title, there’s now an increased chance he could make another trip to Japan in 2020.

Woods’ record-tying 82nd career win also vaulted him back into the mix for the U.S. Olympic team, with only the top four American men qualifying for next year’s event in Tokyo. While countries are capped at two players per nation, there is a provision to allow up to four players from the same country to play if all are ranked inside the top 15 in the world.

Woods’ victory moved him to No. 6 in the latest world rankings, and he’s currently the fourth-highest American behind Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson and Justin Thomas. But the Official World Golf Rankings utilize a two-year rolling points system that currently dates back to October 2017, while points for the official Olympic rankings only began accruing in July 2018.
