And he] revealed just what his daily routine entailed last year at the Genesis Open. It's quite astounding.

Woods said, "JT was asking me this on a flight, 'what did you used to do when you were about my age?'"

"Well, I used to get up in the morning, run four miles," he continued.

"Then I'd go to the gym do my lift.

"Then i'd hit balls for two or three hours.

"I'd go play.

"Come back, work on my short game.

"I'd go run another four more miles.

"And then if anyone wanted to go and play basketball or tennis, I'd go and play basketball or tennis.

"That was my daily routine."
