Tiger Woods, given his nagging health troubles and ongoing struggles on the links, hasn’t had much of a reason to smile the last few years.
LA Clippers All-Star point guard Chris Paul made sure Tiger had a good time during a “trash talking round of golf” Wednesday.

Per the AP:
The biggest name in the sport is playing the final event of the PGA Tour’s regular season for the first time, in an effort to get his game back on track and make a last-gasp push for the playoffs. […] “I’ve started to build. I just need to get more consistent with everything, and start stringing together not just holes, not just rounds but tournaments,” Woods said Wednesday. “That’s why this tournament’s important to me. Hopefully I can win it, get into the playoffs and play a bunch of golf.”
Woods, who missed the cut at the PGA Championship last week, beat last Friday’s deadline to enter the Wyndham but didn’t finalize his commitment until Monday. […] He said he had “a blast” playing a pro-am round Wednesday with NBA All-Star Chris Paul — a native of nearby Winston-Salem who starred at Wake Forest.
In 10 previous events this year, Woods has missed the cut in four of them and withdrew from another. […] He’s had three rounds in the 80s, his best finish was a tie for 17th at the Masters and his best week came at The Greenbrier Classic where he finished just six shots out of the lead.
