During his big cheating scandal, Tiger Woods pretty much remained hidden from the public eye.
Which is understandable.
But apparently he kept his finger on the pulse of the media the whole time.
His former swing coach Hank Haney, said that he kept an eye on everything that was said about him.
"Rather than trying to ignore what was being written and said about him, Tiger was taking it in.
While we were in Augusta driving back and forth to the course, Tiger sat in the front passenger seat while I sat in the back, and I could see as he surfed the Web on his phone that he was searching for stories about himself on gossip sites."
That can't be good for you when you're going through a tough time.
His coach seemed to agree with us and continued:
"Worse, he was reading the comments from readers, many of them vicious cheap shots. I was thinking there was no way that could be helping his frame of mind."
At least he seems to be doing better now after winning his first PGA tour since 2009.
