“You’ll see me again on the PGA Tour, but I don’t know when yet.” Tiger Woods at the ‘Genesis Invitational’ of golf, a tournament of the highest American circuit of which he was an ambassador, reiterated that to return to play without indicating a certain date.
Tiger Woods, statements
“You are hitting me with a hammer – the Californian’s answer to questions from American journalists in California – but I still have a lot of work to do. I can hit golf balls but I don’t know what level I will be able to reach”
At The Masters (the first Major of 2022 scheduled from 7 to 10 April), the champion of the green will participate in the dinner of champions. But it will be really difficult to see him on the pitch in Georgia (USA). He is among the most successful sportsmen ever, as well as one of the richest in the world.
When it comes to firsts Tiger Woods is always present: 15 majors won, 110 professional tournaments, the most successful golfer in the history of this sport. Statistics that explain why he managed to stay at the top of the world ranking for 683 weeks (of which 281 consecutive) and above all because in 2014 he became the first sportsman in the world to have broken the billion dollar barrier.
Astronomical figure that also justifies the fact that Tiger Woods can afford a yacht like the Privacy, a real fairytale boat. And obviously we are talking about something that has cost a lot. If you imagine a luxury yacht and some comfort on board, then Privacy has it.
48 meters long, with a total area of 600 square meters, this yacht was purchased by the golfer in 2004. Equipped with five cabins capable of accommodating a total of ten people, she also boasts four quarters for nine crew members.
Tiger Woods usually calls it “my dinghy” even if everything looks like a dinghy: with a cruising speed of 18 knots, he also has a gym on board where the golfer keeps training. Woods, in fact, prefers to stay on this yacht during the tournaments held in New York.
With cherry wood interiors, Privacy also features an elevator for three people, a huge Jacuzzi, large enough to accommodate eight people, and the inevitable cinema room and corner bar. The extra something for this mega yacht is provided by the area that Tiger Woods wanted to be dedicated to scuba diving: this also explains the presence of a decompression chamber (inflatable) and an area dedicated to filling oxygen cylinders.
The luxuries are also completed by three jet skis and two scooters for short shore excursions. Obviously, all of this has a price: Privacy cost 17 million euros and its annual maintenance amounts to 1.7 million euros.
