ORLANDO, Fla. – Plenty of golfers have expressed excitement at viewing a 41-year-old Tiger Woods try to make his comeback (which began a couple of weeks ago at the Hero World Challenge).
But not all. One golfing great who says he won’t have his eyes glued to the TV as the 14-time major champion makes his latest return? Jack Nicklaus.
The Golden Bear, in Orlando competing with grandson Gary Nicklaus Jr. at the PNC Father/Son Challenge, was quite clear Friday when asked if he was interested in watching Woods’ attempt to reclaim his stake in the game.
“I’m not interested at all,” Nicklaus said.
Tell us how you really feel, Jack.
OK, but don’t take that to mean the Golden Bear has suddenly grown callous here. Nicklaus is not indifferent to the success of Woods, who is still chasing the Golden Bear’s record of 18 majors. The 77-year-old clarified that he does hope the best for Woods: just don’t expect him to be a TV viewer … for any golf for that matter.
“Do I wish (Tiger) well? Yeah, but I’m not interested in watching him,” Nicklaus said. “I’ve watched him play golf for 20-something years, why would I want to go watch more? I don’t watch anybody play golf.”
When you’ve won 18 majors and 73 PGA Tour titles, there’s really not a whole lot of reason to watch others play the game.
But Nicklaus did iterate that the television set is always on where he is, which means he does occasionally see a golf shot on the tube. He got a glimpse at a couple of Woods’ swings as he walked by the TV during the Hero World Challenge.
His takeaway? Maybe he doesn’t care to watch much, but Nicklaus echoed the optimistic sentiment of most observers.
“Tiger seemed to hit the ball pretty well over there and seemed to enjoy it and be pain-free and I wish him well,” Nicklaus said. “The swing as I saw, looked good. It looked like a swing of somebody who didn’t want to hurt his back.”
Could Nicklaus change his mind on tuning in if Woods’ comeback progresses to the tune of more PGA Tour wins and major titles?
We won’t know until (or if) that happens. For now, the Golden Bear appears fine to let Tiger Talk go on without him.

Even away from the White House, President Donald Trump generated plenty of headlines this year.
Trump’s first year in office didn’t dim his enthusiasm for the game, as he made splashy appearances at two big events, tweeted about golf to his more than 44 million followers, teed it up with some of the sport’s biggest stars, including Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Lexi Thompson, and fired a few eyebrow-raising scores. Logging more than 75 rounds since his inauguration, the 3-handicap has only bolstered his reputation as the best golfing president, particularly after his alleged 73 with Sen. Lindsey Graham.
None of his appearances created a bigger stir than when he attended the U.S. Women’s Open. Despite protests and calls for the USGA to move its premier women’s event from Trump Bedminster – the president reportedly threatened to sue – his weekend there went off without incident, as Trump watched the action and hosted players in his private box near the 15th green.
Despite his controversial rhetoric on a variety of national issues, Trump has remained a staunch supporter of women’s golf, and he became the first sitting president to attend the U.S. Women’s Open.
An honorary chairman of the Presidents Cup, Trump also flew to Liberty National for the biennial team event, where he presented the trophy to the U.S. team and dedicated the victory to the hurricane victims in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico.
In late November, amid tweets about the national anthem, Turkey, Egypt and Time Magazine, Trump announced that he was playing a round in South Florida with Woods and world No. 1 Dustin Johnson.
Yes, that too became a headline, just like everything else Trump did in 2017.

INSIGHTS FROM THE INSIDERS
PGATOUR.COM’s Insiders offer their expert views on what to expect from Tony Finau in 2018.
TOUR INSIDER by Cameron Morfit
One of the most explosive players on the planet, Finau led the TOUR in driving distance going into the six-week break, averaging 336.6 yards off the tee. That’s hardly surprising. He led the TOUR with 50 rounds in the 60s last season, and showed his mettle with a clutch, final-round 64 at the BMW Championship (T7), ensuring he would move on to the season-ending TOUR Championship at East Lake (T7). He finished 19th in the FedExCup, and started his 2017-2018 season with a runner-up at the Safeway Open, suggesting another win isn’t far away.
FANTASY INSIDER by Rob Bolton
He’s everything we want and he’s already off to a flying start at ninth in the FedExCup standings. The 28-year-old, father of four, averaged nearly 30 starts in his first three seasons on the PGA TOUR, so he doesn’t mind hitting the road. Even better, he survived the cut in nearly three-quarters of them. Because he checks all of the boxes to produce in PGA TOUR Fantasy Golf presented by SERVPRO and has natural athletic ability, he comps to Dustin Johnson analytically and physically. The wins should come in bunches for Finau, but even if they don’t, we’ll continue to embrace what we already accept him to be: a force.
EQUIPMENT INSIDER by Jonathan Wall
The former Nike equipment staffer recorded his best season on TOUR without an equipment contract. A majority of his setup is comprised of PING equipment, including a G400 3-wood and larger-profile i200 3-iron. Finau remains one of the few players using a custom Piretti putter — the same brand Henrik Stenson had in the bag when he won the season-long FedExCup title in 2013. Continues to play Titleist Pro V1x without a golf ball contract.
STYLE INSIDER by Greg Monteforte
Finau’s athletic build and explosive game are perfect fits for Nike’s sporty threads. The trim fit of his trousers is something all golfers should copy. Look for Finau to continue to bring many of the modern athleisure and streetwear looks to the course in 2018.
