Bradenton, Fla.-Several players showed up on Sunday in red shirts and black pants to commemorate Tiger Woods’ participation in the final round of the WGC-Workday Championship.
Tony Finau may be the best choice, wearing a red simulated golf shirt, black pants and a Nike hat, which is how Woods often participates in competitions.
At the Puerto Rico Championships in the opposite track and field competition this week, the entire venue staff did it for Woods. Woods traditionally wears these colors on Sundays, which can be traced back to the early days of his career.

Woods’ mother Tida suggested wearing this dress when she was a young professional player, but in any case, he eventually followed.
Woods, 45, was involved in a serious car accident on Tuesday. He witnessed multiple injuries and required surgery. He is still hospitalized in California.
Those who reached the red included Jason Day, Tommy Fleetwood, Cameron Champ, Sebastian Munoz, Rory McIlroy and Patrick Reed. Jon Rahm and Justin Thomas wore red and looked more pink.
During the day, Bryson DeChambeau and Matt Kuchar also used Bridgestone golf balls and the tiger’s name was engraved on the ball.
Max Homa-Won the Genesis Invitational last Sunday and won the Riviera Country Club trophy from Woods. Homa did not wear a red shirt and was unable to arrange various sponsorships. He was immediately scolded by social media.
His responses on Twitter include:
“According to the contract, I am obligated to wear clothes with certain logos, which I cannot buy in Dick’s / Pro store / Roger Dunn / Walmart /’a store’ / etc. Thank you for all your choices! “
“I mean zero exaggeration. This is the strangest thing I have ever experienced on Twitter. I love tigers more than you guys. Promise. Listen to last week’s interview. Tomorrow’s red and black can’t prove this. A lifelong attempt Imitate his way of playing.”
