Tiger Woods fields stupid press questions

I’m not sure what I’d ask Tiger Woods if I ever got to interview him.  I might just freeze up and pass out.

I’m watching the live interview of Tiger at Masters.org right now.  The questions were pretty good at first but the same stupid questions are popping up now.

Dumb press question 1: “Tiger are you confident going into this week?”

Tiger Woods: “Yes.”

Dumb press question 2: “Tiger do you expect to win?”

Tiger Woods: “Yes.”

…come on guys.  You need to ask the #1 player in the world, and arguably the best golfer EVER if he expects to win or if he’s confident?  That’s insane.

UPDATE: Now watching Geoff Ogilvy interview.  They’re asking him about Tiger.  Gag.

The show Sunday, April 12, 1-2 p.m. ET.  Rumors are that we’ll hear Nantz say “A win for the ages” somewhere.

The Black Night, Gary Player, will play his last Masters this year

Gary Player’s 52nd Masters Tourament is this year.  It will be his final appearance.  Gary won the Masters (checking my Masters coffee cup) in 1961, 1974 and 1978.


“I can’t begin to express the fond memories I have of the Masters and everything that comes with it… slipping into the Green Jacket; the Southern hospitality of the patrons; the interviews under the oak tree, the rigorous competition; the Champions Dinner; the roars on Amen Corner; the drive down Magnolia Lane. I’m going to miss walking up the 18th fairway each year, but my time has come to say goodbye as a competitor.”

Now the gurus from Augusta are social networking.  Here are links to The Masters’  Facebook and Twitter.
