Tiger Woods largely escaped the wrath of the vaunted Fleet Street tabloids this week at the British Open. What we had expected to be a savage, unrepentant grilling of Tiger's personal life and divorce, fizzled into a weak half dozen questions that barely drew blood.
Booo. Come on, British tabloids! I thought you guys were tough!
That said, here was one "question" which I felt would have been rejected by any decent judge as "leading" to say the least.
“Tom Watson has said you need to clean up your act on the golf course. He’s gone on record. Many of us over the years have heard you use the F word, we’ve seen you spit on the course, and we’ve seen you throw tantrums like chucking your clubs around. Are you willing to cut out all those tantrums this week and respect the home of golf?” one reporter asked.
Woods simply replied with, “I’m trying to become a better player and a better person, yes.”
Score a birdie for Woodie on that one.
