Tiger Woods in 2018: Test your knowledge of his impressive year

Hero Motocorp on Tuesday announced the extension of its association with Tiger Woods as the "Global Corporate Partner" for another four years.

The American made a surprising return to form during the year and won the Tour Championship.

Because he was a late qualifier for a World Golf Championship at Firestone, Woods wound up playing seven times in nine weeks, all of them big events in hot weather, ending with the super-intense Ryder Cup matches in France.

He believes the busy schedule has had an impact on him.

Woods was a 41-year-old golfer coming back from his fourth back surgery that would have forced most of his contemporaries into retirement. "It's one of those years; it's never been this hot". Every single tournament was just stifling. It was just hard for me to maintain my strength and my weight through all that.

Tiger Woods will get a cut of the subscription revenue from GolfTV, which will also broadcast live tournaments. "I was worn out, mentally, physically and emotionally". "Toward the end of the year, I just became more and more consistent as a tournament player again".

David Zaslav, president and CEO at Discovery Inc. said: "Our global partnership with Tiger is a ideal example of our strategy to collaborate exclusively with top talent to extend global media platforms, and take advantage of our worldwide distribution, technology infrastructure and aggregate audiences, as well as build long-term value". "My training sessions have been good".

Four of the world's current top five, six of the current top 10 including defending champion Rickie Fowler -- who is 9th now -- and world No 2 Justin Rose, the highest ranked here who knows a strong finish can get him to the top supplanting Brooks Koepka, world No 3 Dustin Johnson are all in the mix with Gary Woodland (world No 32) back-marking the field.

I gave myself a chance to win both the last two major championships, and I was right there.

"With Tiger joining us, I am confident that GOLFTV will be the new gold standard for comprehensive sports streaming, nourishing golf fans when and where they want to consume what they are most passionate about", Zaslav added. "Obviously there's some things we can do as far as interaction and as far as play".
