Tiger Woods knows how to play the game — and we don't just mean golf.
When it comes to the media and their constant harassment of Tiger and the scrutiny of his personal life, he's great at answering questions without actually saying much of anything.
He's great at avoiding, dodging or just being PC when it comes to his answers. That's because he's the biggest name in golf, as well as one of the biggest names in sports.
It must get so tiring… and be so tedious. So when he was asked how he felt about all the criticism he said:
"Well, I think that's the nature of the new media business. The reason why I say that is obviously with the new 24 hour news cycle and all of the different medias that that are now, there's so many different ways for people to get information.
And I think that we have talked about it a number of times on TOUR with myself with other players is that there is so many different ways that we can - so many different ways in which news is reported. You've got to be able to stand out somehow to get eyes going to your site or to your media, and I think that's one of the reasons why there's the criticism that there is.
I was looking at it the other day, if LeBron didn't have a good game, then the Heat are done and he should retire. I'm like, geez, guys, he just won MVP. But I think that's just the nature of the volatility of the new media in which we are involved in now."
Really well said, Tiger.
Lay off him, everyone!
