Tiger Woods and some of the world’s biggest golfers had quite the adventure on Friday night when they were forced into a Domino’s Pizza joint in Japan after powerful storms made roads undrivable.
Woods was supposed to play the second round at the Zozo Championship in Accordia Gold Narashino Country Club when a massive rainstorm stopped all possible play. To pass the time, he and a group of other supers – including Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth, Gary Woodland, Bubba Watson, and Ryan Palmer – went to see an afternoon showing of the “Joker.”
However, once the movie ended the group could not leave the theater.

The courtesy vans that were supposed to take them back to their hotel were not able to make it because of the roads and no Uber or taxis were available, according to USA Today. Public transportation was also shut down in Chiba.
Spotting a Domino’s nearby, the group ducked inside and chowed down on six thin-crust pies – standing at the table-less eatery to eat 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, USA Today reported.
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.”
