ShoeGate is Solved!
On Thursday at Sherwood, Tiger Woods shot a 3-under 69. He nearly whiffed a golf shot in his round. But that wasn't what everyone was talking about. No, it was ShoeGate!
Yes, Tiger switched from white to black shoes in the middle of his round, and it was the story that lead Sportscenter. Why did he do it? Is that cheating? Was Marty Hackel somehow involved?!
Tiger explained after the round so this could all be settled.
"I was tying my shoes on 10 and one of the eyes where it kind of goes through snapped, so I didn't want to play with it, so I had the black pair sent out."
Q. You had them sent out?
TIGER WOODS: They were in my locker. Thank you. Appreciate it.
