“This is a natural extension of my golf course design philosophy and my TGR Design business,” Woods said in a press release. “Our goal has always been to design courses that bring people together and are fun for golfers of all abilities and ages.”
Some of my happiest memories are spending time with my pops on the golf course having putting contests. I’m looking forward to others enjoying time with their kids @PopStrokeGolf. https://t.co/m2yUEcYBCd pic.twitter.com/1J4tQExlSJ

“Tiger Woods has had the most significant impact in growing the game of golf around the world and his investment and partnership in PopStroke will undoubtedly introduce the game to a new and wider audience of participants,” PopStroke founder Greg Bartoli said.
PopStroke, founded in 2018, is a technology-infused golf-entertainment company featuring professionally designed putting courses along with food and beverage options. PopStroke currently has one facility in Port St. Lucie, FL. Locations in Scottsdale, AZ, and Fort Myers, FL, are under development and several additional sites are planned for 2020 and beyond. TGR Design and Tiger Woods will be responsible for designing the putting courses at all future PopStroke locations.
But that’s not all.
MSN reports that HarperCollins Publishers has acquired world rights to Back, the first-ever memoir authored by Woods. The golfer stated in a press release, “I’ve been in the spotlight for a long time, and because of that, there have been books and articles and TV shows about me, most filled with errors, speculative, and wrong. This book is my definitive story. It’s in my words and expresses my thoughts. It describes how I feel and what’s happened in my life. I’ve been working at it steadily, and I’m looking forward to continuing the process and creating a book that people will want to read.”
Woods is founder and CEO of TGR, Tiger Woods Ventures, a multi-brand enterprise comprising his various companies and philanthropic endeavors, including TGR Foundation, a charitable foundation serving underrepresented youth through education; TGR Design, the golf course design company; TGR Live, an events company; ahe Woods Jupiter, an upscale sports restaurant.
