Tiger Woods hilariously puts the wind up Jason Day
Who knew Tiger was the comedy King?
Welcome to the Tiger Woods Roast in which a brilliant comeback puts Jason Day firmly in his place. Plus WGC wrap and Tony Finau makes a fan's day!!
Tiger and Jason were paired together in the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational and after they'd finished, Tiger was asked if the round Day had just played was the best he’s witnessed from the Australian in person.
“Of course it is,” Day could be heard yelling in the background before Tiger chimed in with a hilarious quip.
“No it’s probably the luckiest he’s ever gotten,” quipped Tiger as roars of laughter went up around the pair.
The camera spun around to reveal a sheepish looking Day, who could only shake his head in the knowledge he’d been expertly stitched up by the former World No.1.

“I’ve seen him (Day) stripe it before and he’s certainly capable of hitting just so many good shots,” Woods said.
“He doesn’t really miss many putts. So you put those two things together on a golf course like this, he’s going to be in contention.”
In the five previous occasions Day and Woods played together, Day missed the cut three times.
“He was my idol growing up, so it’s easy to be nervous in front of your idol and he’s so cut-throat he doesn’t even care; he’s not going to comfort you,” Day said of Woods, whose 68 left him sharing 10th at six under.
All were left in Justin Thomas's trail, however, as the American strolled to a 4-shot (15) win over Kyle Stanley. Thorbjorn Olesen continued his claim for a Ryder Cup spot with a final round 64 (-6) finishing 3rd at -10. Elsewhere it was disappointment for Ian Poulter who slumped to a 74 (+4) final round. Tiger and Rory both finished with 73s (+3). Tiger ended up Tied 31st at Even par, while Rory was Tied 6th at -8.
Roll on the USPGA!!!
