Tiger Woods Watches U.S. Open Tennis Match With Daughter Sam

Tiger-TennisHaving failed to qualify for the PGA Tour’s season-ending FedEx Cup playoffs, Tiger Woods turned free time into family time, taking in a U.S. Open tennis match with his daughter Sam at Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York Friday night.

Woods watched his fellow 14-time major winner Rafael Nadal’s wild third-round tilt against Fabio Fognini from Nadal’s family box. The Spaniard coughed up a two-set lead for the first time in his career, falling to the unheralded Italian in five sets.

Nadal’s early exit snapped his 10-year streak of winning at least one major title per season and brought his dreadful 2015 campaign to an end.

Woods didn’t fare any better this year. Struggling with a surgically repaired back and a swing change, Woods went winless in 2015 and missed the cut in the season’s final three majors.

He will tee it up next at the Frys.com Open, the first tournament of the wraparound 2015-2016 season, in October.
