Sarcastic Woods keeps it short
Tiger Woods had a terse exchange with a magazine reporter Wednesday over excerpts from his former swing coach's new book, and ended the conversation with a long stare and a sarcastic, "Have a good day." If that wasn't enough, he fielded 10 questions about his putting.
And so began a bumpy road to the Masters for Woods, who has gone more than two years without winning on the PGA Tour.
Hank Haney's book, "The Big Miss," is scheduled for release March 27, the week before the Masters. In an excerpt, Haney details Woods' fascination with the military, particularly the Navy SEALs.
"Because of his father, it's no secret that Tiger has always had high respect for the military, so for Haney to twist that admiration into something negative is disrespectful," Mark Steinberg, Woods' agent, had said.
The press conference turned awkward when Alex Miceli, a Golfweek senior writer, asked Woods that Steinberg's statement suggested something was wrong with the excerpt and he wanted to know if it was true. Woods paused for a moment, said with indifference, "I don't know," then stared at him and said, "Have a good day."
