Tiger Woods Reminds Us He's Boring, Seeks Majors
Normally when Tiger Woods talks, journalists everywhere use one hand to write down what's he saying, the other to keep their heads up so they don't pass out from boredom. So, it's no surprise that Tiger took to the microphone again to remind us of the following:
-- He still wants to win majors. (Really??!?)
-- He still thinks he can catch Jack Nicklaus' 18 majors. (What, is he going to say, 'Nope. No chance. I'm toast.'?)
-- He's had lean years before. (Yeah, at a Perkins. *carhorn*)
-- Ben Hogan didn't start winning majors until he was something like 73. (Maybe an exaggeration.)
-- He's happy. (Snooooooreeee)
Well, enough of me, hereeeee's Tiger.
"It's a career. It took Jack over 20 years and I haven't been playing that long," he reasoned. "No-one has done better than Jack with 18... at the end of the day, hopefully I'll have more than 18 major championships.
"I'm only 34 -- Ben Hogan didn't start winning his [majors] until after my age - all nine of them - so I'm looking forward to it."
Woods admitted it had been a "tough 12 months" following revelations about his private life but stated: "I'm in a much, much better place.
"I'm much happier, much more balanced. I've gone through a lot and thank God I did, because I needed to put my life back into an order and a balance.
"It was rough going, but boy I'm glad I'm at the spot I'm at now. It feels good."
I'd love to play that card game Bullshit against Tiger one day, because no matter what he said, or what cards he held, I'd just scream BULLSHIT! at the top of my lungs anytime he opened his mouth.
It's like he's trying to convince himself of this all this now more than convince us, and I'm not one to buy it.
