Additionally, Woods will create a one-of-a-kind Short Course ideal for serious short-game practice or fun outings with friends and family.

When you factor all of these variables, I knew I wanted to be part of Bluejack National.”

His best season came in 1998 when at age 41 he became the oldest player in history to win two Majors in the same year – the Masters and the British Open.
