It be more interesting to see him putt well the first three rounds be in contention and than suck big time

Tiger will be doing Nationwide commercials in a few years. Just Kidding

Re: Tiger Woods Thread (aka Golf Forum Hamsterdam)

Video isn't up on pgatour.com, but some of the comments on the blog post about his PC are fantastic. Here are my two favorites:

Quote:
Give yourself a chance, Tiger. Fairways and greens. Keep your head still on putts through impact. Pick a line two feet in front of the ball and roll it over that line. A much shorter backstroke will still put your putts past the cup. Where’s your old “Scotty” putter? Select a putter with confidence and don’t 3-Jack….ever. Just one more thing. Don’t get “Shook”, and stay loose. A pro golf course is no place to lose your cool.
Quote:
The Tee times are ridiculous. Why is that Tiger starts late on Thursday and very early on Friday leaving not much time between rounds while Rory starts Thursday morning and late on Friday with a lot of time in between. This has happened more than once for Tiger. I expect this is a big advantage for McIlroy.
Also, love this thread. I have been traveling so haven't been able to comment much, but I will. Oh, I will.

Tiger and Alex Miceli(bowtie tard from GC) got into it a bit. I guess before the PC the media was asked not to ask about the Haney book bc Tiger has said he has already commented all he would like on it. After 2 previous book questions that Tiger shot down, Miceli tried his luck and then some words were exchanged.

I think most of "our" demographic (I'm a couple years older than Tiger) had some thought of enlisting in the couple years post 9-11.

Agree 100%. No idea why the media thinks they are entitled to know personal details from the lives of athletes. He's a golfer, ask him about golf. He was very candid about his golf game in the interview, shame the media can't come up with more golf questions when he's being so open. I caught Misceli on Golf Central tonight and he was defending his question, saying it was a fair question to ask. Why is it not fair for Tiger to choose not to answer book related questions?

Re: Tiger Woods Thread (aka Golf Forum Hamsterdam)

In Tiger's defense, the average pre-tournament press conference includes almost exclusively completely idiotic questions that aren't interesting at all. They've also fallen victim to the sports media epidemic of not simply asking a question, but asking a question after having spent 45 seconds dictating your own personal thought process behind why you're asking the question you had in mind.

Maybe him getting $70M/year as a corporate spokesman and willing to leverage an angle that plays well from time to time has something to do with it?

I don't feel any right to an answer, and I don't mind his non-answers or his BS answers.

Sports journalism is a joke, but I don't see the crime in someone getting an on camera reaction to a question that Tiger tried to preempt.

Re: Tiger Woods Thread (aka Golf Forum Hamsterdam)

Misceli is a dumbass thats all there is to it. When you're told pre-conference that he won't answer questions on the book, then two writers ask questions about the book before you and get shut down, what do you think is going to happen when you ask your question? Decent chance he was fishing for an angry response.

Somebody else wrote a book about Tiger that he didn't want written. I think he's smart not to answer any questions.

Re: Tiger Woods Thread (aka Golf Forum Hamsterdam)

Tiger's argument is that he's already talked about everything in the book by telling people he isn't going to talk about anything in the book. Pure sophistry. I have no problem with this as a media strategy. Why would he want to spend a second helping Haney sell a book he didn't authorize and doesn't appreciate?

I'm never going to read the book. It seems like a pretty sleazy project and I can do without gobbling up every Tiger tidbit. And I like his answer to the previous question when someone who makes a living trying to crawl up TW's ass asked him what it is like to have people setting up shop inside your ass.

Saw the interview -- nothing to see. I thought Tiger did a good job expressing that he didn't want to talk about it and Misceli just kept pushing.

Re: Tiger Woods Thread (aka Golf Forum Hamsterdam)

I am fine with Tiger on it I why not answer it but if he starts answering one question on the book he will have to answer more. I am sure players got sick and tired of Tiger questions when he was winning and running from his wife with the 5 Iron. The Media can be annoying but the more they bug you the more money you must be making
Reporter did nothing wrong also
