Opening Ace at the Playgrounds at Bluejack National

On the opening day of the Playgrounds at Bluejack National, Tiger Woods’ first completed U.S. design, the first tee shot found the bottom of the cup. The 11-year old player seemed non-plussed about the achievement, but the ensuing hug and high five from Woods seemed to brighten his day. A group of junior golfers from the South Texas PGA played the inaugral “round” on the short course with Woods.

LINKS provided a first look at Bluejack National in the 2015 Winter Issue. The course is currently only partially open for play. With the completion of the Playgrounds, only the back nine is left to open. That celebration will occur in early April, according to Casey Paulson, Bluejack National president.

On another note, is it odd that Woods approached his tee shot with a putter in-hand? That’s a long 80+ yard putt… The recovery process must be moving along slowly.
