Arjun Atwal's Win Among 2014 Highs for Tiger Woods



New Delhi: Left to nurse injuries for better part of the year going by, celebrated American golfer Tiger Woods said his close friend Arjun Atwal's Asian Tour triumph and a sponsorship deal with the Hero Group counted among the high points of 2014 for him.


In his year-end blog, Woods said, "As a golfer, 2014 was one of my most frustrating years because I've been hurt pretty much all year. I'm finally healthy enough to practice and dedicate myself to the game of golf again, and that's going to be fun for next year. But, in so many other ways, it was a great year and I have a lot to be thankful for.


"My kids are doing fantastic and are growing up and maturing, and it's happening faster than I ever thought. They're teaching me how to work an iPad, which is really funny.


"Lindsey Vonn is doing great. Her rehab was fantastic, and she worked so hard at it...It was nice to see my good friend Arjun Atwal win the Dubai Open last week. He's had some physical ailments and doesn't really have a playing card; it's just hit-and-miss tournaments and hard to get any momentum. But he birdied the last hole to win, and that's really exciting."


Woods said signing up with the Hero Group was also a high point of the year.


"The Hero World Challenge was fantastic. We went to Isleworth and Orlando for one year, and it was great to see a lot of the people that I have gotten to know through the years. I would like to thank Mr. Munjal, Vice Chairman & CEO of Hero MotoCorp, for his support of the event and my foundation. We've developed a great relationship and have a shared vision."


Woods was also happy to see his niece Cheyenne earn her LPGA playing card for 2015, something he found out on the Sunday of the Hero World Challenge.
