I hope that Tiger continues to needle them humorously as it is far more effective than becoming angry. Humour disarms everyone and still achieves the same objective. The Feherty show demonstrates that so well. Don't know how Tiger kept his cool during some rather awkward and unfair questioning by the media. I don't know about the comment you referred to but I do remember Micelli insisting on asking Tiger about Haney's book...and Tiger in anger said: you are a beauty..I think!!
Always such a pleasure commmunicating with others on this forum.
LOL, I loved Tiger telling the media they're annoying. Also noticed a few of them on, "Morning Drive", saying
they weren't the ones saying Tiger would never win again. Quickly defending themselves..lol!
:I think before the PGA in 2010 or somewhere around that time, Alex asked Tiger a question in teh pre-tournament presser: "Now that you are probably the worst golf in the world, why do you think that you can win"? I thought the question was really low, but Tiger's response was something like: I maybe bad but I can still beat you.
I can't believe that a member of the press would ask such a cruel and heartless question. Helps to understnad why Tiger was so angry with him but I think Tiger's answer was most appropriate. I think that any member of the press who chooses to insult someone should be banned or fired from that position.
Thanks for sharing.
And obviously GC execs took action as we don't see Miceli on course during tournaments like before! Think they popped his balloon a bit, just like Chamblee covering the LPGA now. I am sure folks at GC do read posts here and of course comments made on their own site. Their best method of tempering......move 'em behind the scenes!
It's one thing to express opinions, to point out perceived deficits in a player's game, but when it comes to expressions of hatred, jealousy, or trying to incite controversy it is not in the best interest of promoting golf.
