Tiger Woods' Big Win Leads to 206% Ratings Increase for NBC

Bjorn had five rookies in his team at Le Golf National

On Monday, NBC revealed that their ratings for the final round of the Tour Championship were up more than 200 percent from a year ago.

Thomas Bjørn says his Europe Ryder Cup team will adopt a no-fear approach to facing a resurgent Tiger Woods at Le Golf National this weekend and has urged his players to focus on the U.S. team as a whole rather than pinpointing the 14-times major champion.

NBC saw a 206% ratings jump from 2017 after Tiger Woods won the PGA Tour Championship in dramatic, come-from-behind fashion.

"My body was a wreck, I was beyond playing".

Bjorn even went so far as to say that the renaissance of Woods, after three back operations and a spinal fusion, was good for Europe....

Herman, 33, and Woods have been dating for more than a year.

He now heads to Paris as part of a USA team seeking to win overseas for the first time since 1993.




Furyk conceded a number of fans were "unruly" at Hazeltine but is not expecting to receive the same treatment at Le Golf National on the outskirts of Paris when the biennial contest gets under way on Friday. He does so much for the game.

After watching the criticism, the 42-year-old gives a smile to the camera.

The 14-time major victor was paired with Rory McIlroy but the latter's challenge faded with a round of three-over par while Justin Rose also had a disappointing finish.

Woods revealed: "What Rory was saying, you know, Rory was just - off the tee, he was great, and then coming down 18 - between our second and third shots, he said, "This is like Jack in '80 at Baltusrol". What stands on the other side, we know, is one of the strongest American teams of all time.

Bjorn also spoke warmly of Woods, and what he brings to the sport.

"For such a big event you want big personalities, big profiles..."

Tiger Woods will be back on TV later this week.
