Show Caption Previous Next For those wondering why Tiger Woods has been rumored to be hanging out in Branson, Missouri, the wait is over. Bass Pro Shops founder Johnny Morris confirmed in a press conference at his Big Cedar Lodges on Tuesday that a public golf course designed by Tiger Woods would be the newest addition to the Branson golf community. Tiger Woods joined Morris at the press conference. Morris teased before the big reveal that Woods loves go-kart racing, “…so he’s going to build us a heck of a go-kart track”. The real announcement of course, a new golf course. “I grew up on public courses. That’s where I learned how to play,” Woods said. “So to design a public course is near and dear to my heart.” The course will be named “Payne’s Valley” in honor of the late Payne Stewart. The Springfield-native won 11 PGA events, including three majors before dying in a plane crash at the age of 42. “This area means so much to him,” the wife of the late Payne Stewart, Tracey said “I know he is looking down from heaven today.” The architect of @BigCedarLodge new course is @TigerWoods –Payne’s Valley will be his first public course design pic.twitter.com/4eNJDp8wm0
