You’d be hard-pressed to find a more careful eater than Woods, on or off the course. You’d also be hard-pressed to find a golfer more aware of the importance of glucose homeostasis. Woods, as an athlete, is both an artist and engineer. As an interview subject, candor has never been his great strength.
Maybe he will address his gum-chewing in the book. Maybe he will sign a deal with a gum manufacturer. Or maybe he has said all he cares to say about the subject, more unclear now than it was on the day he won the Masters.
You could pick through those four sentences for a week and not make sense of them. If you lose weight while playing, and presumably want to keep your energy up through a four-hour round, wouldn’t eating be a good thing? Over the course of his career, Woods has eaten a long series of peanut butter-and-banana sandwiches on whole wheat, as well as bananas, apples and nuts.
Standing beside Woods, McNamara read and asked, “What gum do you chew in competition?”
“I don’t ask. I don’t know what it is, I don’t know why he’s doing it, I don’t care. People get fascinated and caught up in this stuff.
“I’m not bailing on you guys. I have no idea what the gum is called, and I don’t know why he’s chewing it.”
LaCava’s career as a caddie began in the mid-1980s, working for his cousin Ken Green. He had a long run with Fred Couples and a short stint with Dustin Johnson before going to work for Woods. He has survived by never forgetting the most essential caddie maxim: Keep up and shut up.
Woods announced last year that he is writing a book called “Back.” “I’ve been in the spotlight for a long time, and because of that, there have been books and articles and TV shows about me, most filled with errors, speculative and wrong,” he said in a release in which he announced that he was working in the book. No publication date has been revealed.

While we can’t confirm it’s CBD gum they’re chewing, all the signs point to why golfers might consider it. Next time you’re on the links, maybe give it a try. It could just be the difference between a bogey and par in your game.
Tiger Woods completed one of the greatest comeback stories in sports this past weekend by winning the Masters It’s his first major tournament victory following an 11-year drought that included national scandals, a debilitating back injury, and more. At various points, commentators said any remaining hope around a Tiger comeback was delusional. He’d never win another major tournament, they said.
