Tiger Woods explains superstition of wearing red on Sundays

Any knowledgeable golf fan should be aware of the fact that Tiger Woods has a tendency to wear red on Sundays. Well, at least on the Sundays when he is competing in a tournament.

On Wednesday, Woods explained his reasoning behind sticking with the particular color, and traced the superstition all the way back to his youth.

“I've worn red ever since my college days basically, or junior golf days – big events on the last day,” he said in advance of the AT&T National, which he won’t play due to an elbow injury. “I just stuck with it out of superstition, and it worked. I just happened to choose a school that actually was red, and we wore red on our final day of events. So it worked out.”

You may recall that Woods attended Stanford University before joining the pro tour. So, the decision to wear red was obvious at the time.

Don't expect him to change up colors anytime soon, either.

“I came out here and I continued it,” he added. “I've had a few wins wearing red, and it's not going to change.”
