Tiger Woods, other golf superstars get stuck in Japan Domino’s during severe storm
Following his performance, the group of golf stars saw the movie, but courtesy vans were unable to transport them back to their hotel and no Uber or taxis were available, according to USA Today.
The group then decided to head over to a local Domino’s and chow down on six thin-crust pies, standing at the table-less eatery to eat and kill some time as heavy rains poured down outside the restaurant.
Woods, and his girlfriend, Erica Herman eventually decided to walk across the street to a 7-Eleven where two fans asked him for a selfie, according to the outlet.
The downtime and pizza seemed to sit well with Woods, who shot a second straight 6-under 64 on Saturday to take a two-stroke lead over Woodland after the second round concluded.
Woods discussed his plan for Sunday where he expects to play for up to 10 hours.
“Warm-up-wise, it’s still going to be the same. It’s just going to be a long day,” Woods told ESPN. “Eat a lot of food tonight and then tomorrow, same thing, make sure that I eat enough and feel good about my warm-up session. I felt like I hit it a little bit better today, which is nice. That’s nice going into a long day like tomorrow, because it’s going to be a bit of a test physically and mentally to play for, what, up to 10 hours. So it’s going to be a long day.”
Thomas tweeted about the Domino’s experience, saying, “What a day for the books…Walked to dominoes with the guys, made our way home 2 hours later, treatment again, now back in my hotel room.”
Woods will tee off with Gary Woodland and Keegan Bradley at 8:30 a.m. local time (7:30 p.m. ET Saturday).
