But hey, don't say the old Japanese "ouch cream" deals don't pay some sweet cash!

That's thanks to his latest endorsement deal for the Antiphlogistic Analgetic Vantelin Kowa series, a pain relief cream that, as the ad shows us, helps heal backs really, really fast.
Honest question: Wouldn't it have made a little more sense to have Tiger rub this stuff on his knee? I mean, that's the part of him that's broken. I'd at least have him rub it on his knee and then do a lap or two on the track.
I want to know how today's dramatic "He's going to make an announcement!" story broke loose, and then had to be reeled in by his boy Steiney. You can say, it was just a "bad report" by one outlet. But then again, as his AGENT, don't you make SURE to let people know: here's EXACTLY what is happening?
Doesn't seem that hard to me, unless you somehow want to make the media look stupid. Or maybe somebody just jumped the gun.
Too bad, because I was hoping the "announcement" was going to be that Tiger is the next subject on "The Haney Project."
