Pablo Larrazábal said: “What a day. But I knew that my golf was there. I couldn’t make any putts the first three days but I told my girlfriend last night that she had to choose the clothing for the (winning) pictures!
I knew that I had a low one in my bag and that’s what I did. Today I holed putts and that was key. I mean, to shoot 62 in windy conditions with the flags out there, it was good.
Pablo Larrazábal, statements
“I’m glad I got the seventh (title) at home.
I live one hour and 15 minutes up the road and it’s very special to win in Spain, in front of a few friends of mine, and obviously in front of my girlfriend and my brother. So it’s not going to be the most emotional win in my career but it’s one of them.
There were a lot of key moments today to keep that round going, and that good stretch in the middle of the round was unbelievable. The golf I played on those five holes was probably the best golf in a long, long time. It’s been tough, the last three years, the last maybe five, six years – I know I had a win three years ago.
But when your golf is not there and then injuries, and then these 20-year-old kids are coming in and they’re flying the ball 50, 60 yards over yours and you’re not putting well, you’re not chipping well. There are a lot of things coming into my mind.
I thought a lot about not playing any more. And sometimes if you believe and you keep working hard, life gives you back and it’s been a long road. For the trust and for the work I did, and for the patience, I think I really deserve it”
He is among the most successful sportsmen ever, as well as one of the richest in the world. When it comes to firsts Tiger Woods is always present: 15 majors won, 110 professional tournaments, the most successful golfer in the history of this sport.
Statistics that explain why he managed to stay at the top of the world ranking for 683 weeks (of which 281 consecutive) and above all because in 2014 he became the first sportsman in the world to have broken the billion dollar barrier.
Astronomical figure that also justifies the fact that Tiger Woods can afford a yacht like the Privacy, a real fairytale boat. And obviously we are talking about something that has cost a lot. If you imagine a luxury yacht and some comfort on board, then Privacy has it.
48 meters long, with a total area of 600 square meters, this yacht was purchased by the golfer in 2004. Equipped with five cabins capable of accommodating a total of ten people, she also boasts four quarters for nine crew members.
Tiger Woods usually calls it “my dinghy” even if everything looks like a dinghy: with a cruising speed of 18 knots, he also has a gym on board where the golfer keeps training. Woods, in fact, prefers to stay on this yacht during the tournaments held in New York.
With cherry wood interiors, Privacy also features an elevator for three people, a huge Jacuzzi, large enough to accommodate eight people, and the inevitable cinema room and corner bar. The extra something for this mega yacht is provided by the area that Tiger Woods wanted to be dedicated to scuba diving: this also explains the presence of a decompression chamber (inflatable) and an area dedicated to filling oxygen cylinders.
The luxuries are also completed by three jet skis and two scooters for short shore excursions. Obviously, all of this has a price: Privacy cost 17 million euros and its annual maintenance amounts to 1.7 million euros.
