Crozier didn’t just take that shot – he nailed a hole-in-one.
Jason Day, victor of the 2015 PGA Championship, said Wednesday that he had an encouraging almost hourlong phone conversation with Woods last week.
With a nod in that direction, Woods kicked off the rounds at The Playground by playing a three-some with two young whippersnappers: An 11-year-old boy named Taylor Crozier and a young girl named Ceci Lococo.

“She came out and said, ‘Daddy, what are you doing lying on the ground?’ I said, ‘Sam, thank goodness you’re here, ‘” Woods said in the fall.
Bluejack National opened nine holes on its regulation course in the fall, with the full 18 holes scheduled to open in late April. A short course designed for families, it also boasts a cutting-edge golf performance center.
14-time grand slam victor Woods is now taking an indefinite break from golf after having surgery on his back, and after speaking bleakly in December previous year about his chances of a return, the American was far more upbeat about his chances of appearing in a professional competition again.
Woods posted the YouTube video on his Twitter page.
Day, who enters this week’s WGC-Cadillac Championship at Trump Doral ranked No. 2 in the world, revealed Wednesday he reached out to Woods last week via text, asking if he could call him.
That’s Crozier getting a bear hug from Woods, back trouble be damned.
‘I couldn’t play with my kids; I wasn’t able to throw and play catch with my son. My son Charlie and I compete in just about everything and have three-hole chipping contests.
“Talking to him, every time that I talk to him … it’s mindset, mental toughness, effort”.
“The big thing right now is trying to get stronger and more flexible”.
“But that’s what athletes do; we play through pain, we deal with injuries, it’s a part of playing sport”.
