14-time major champion Tiger Woods is set to design a public golf course in Chicago, according to CNN.
The American, who turned 43 last Sunday, is reportedly teaming up with NBC golf commentator Mark Rolfing, who is the head of the Chicago Parks Golf Alliance, to design the public course.
According to reports, the course, which is working in tandem with former US president Barack Obama’s proposed Obama Presidential Center, could have work begun on it this year.
Woods recently returned to the sport after a series of injuries and after a run of impressive performances, won his first tournament in five years when he claimed the Tour Championship in September.
The 43-year-old was also a part of Jim Furyk’s Ryder Cup team last year, however, Woods failed to win any of his matches, with Team USA losing to Team Europe in Paris.
Talking in a film for the Chicago Parks Golf Alliance, Woods admitted building a public golf course in Chicago is ‘as good as it gets’.
We didn’t have enough money in our family to be part of a country club so it was huge for us to be able to play on a public golf course.
To build a public golf course in Chicago is as good as it gets. You can see the skyline, it feels right down the road. It is truly amazing. We have the opportunity to create something so special.
