Tiger Woods Has Emotional Reaction To Kobe Bryant’s Death

Tiger Woods had an emotional reaction to Kobe Bryant’s death on Sunday.

Woods started Day 4 of the Farmers Insurance Open fairly poorly, but ultimately finished -2 on the day and within the top 10.

He did not hear of Bryant’s death until the very end of the day.

Woods and Bryant were good friends, so the news understandably shook Woods to his core.

In an interview with CBS Sports, Woods revealed that he was not informed of Bryant’s death until the 18th hole.

Woods said he heard people saying “Do it for Mamba,” but did not realize what they were referring to.

“It’s a shocker to everyone,” Woods said.

“I’m unbelievably sad and [it’s] one of the more tragic days. I think for me the reality is just setting in because I was just told about five minutes ago.”

Woods is a lifelong fan of the Lakers and has known Bryant since he arrived in the league in 1996.

When asked what he would remember about Bryant, Woods described his will to succeed.

“He burned so competitively hot, and had that desire to win,” he said.

“He brought it each and every night on both ends of the floor. Not too many guys can say that throughout NBA history.”

Bryant was 41 years old and is survived by three daughters and his wife Vanessa.
