Help Tiger Woods out: Who is Tom Hoge?

Tom Hoge playing with Tiger Woods


Tiger Woods and Tom Hoge will tee off together in the final group in Saturday's third round of the Wyndham Championship at 2 p.m. Both have a piece of the lead at 11 under par, but their experience, well, is quite different.

To put it in perspective: Woods has 79 PGA Tour wins, while Hoge has 79 PGA Tour rounds under his belt.

While Hoge has three top-16 finishes in his last four PGA Tour starts, the 26-year-old is not on Woods' radar. Like, at all.



As if Woods would recognize Hoge, he said, "No, I wouldn't. What is it, or him? I don't know," to laughter of the assembled media. He added, "I've never met him, never seen him. Don't know anything about him."

Then again, Woods isn't used to playing in the kind of PGA Tour events that attract few of the world top 50.

"I haven't played that much and then you played smaller events," Woods said, "a lot of guys from Q-School or Web.com are in the events."

Well, Hoge, an above average-length hitter, is in his fifth year as a pro and played his college golf at TCU. He's a North Carolina native, who moved to North Dakota when he was 6 and has really come on the radar because of his solid finishes, including a season-best T-5 at the RBC Canadian Open.
