Remember the whole Tiger Woods “Tiger Tooth” situation? Where he was missing a tooth while watching Olympic ski star and girlfriend Lindsey Vonn at a race?
Well, he’s back and ready for the Waste Management Phoenix Open. He addressed the media with some interesting comments in regards to the missing tooth thing.
When asked why he wore the mask, Tiger responded with a little humor. He basically said that he was just trying to blend in because “You don’t see too many brown dudes at ski races” (The mask he was wearing was a skull designed mask which is white. Looked pretty cool actually. Schwag!).
Here’s the Vine of Tiger’s funny little comment:
Oh wait! There’s more! When being asked again about the mask, Tiger asked the reporter if he’s played “Ghost Recon” which is a video game that features masked protagonists which are soldiers. As a video game nut, I’m glad he brought up a video game. Love it!
However, to be honest I have never played Ghost Recon but it’s just cool to see that he mentioned video games period. I play a lot of sports video games with my share of other games like Journey (Shown on my “About Me” page), Grand Theft Auto 5 (They have golf in it!), etc.
When asked once again about the mask and missing tooth, he went on to say “That’s how the media is” in a jokingly way. Oh come on Tiger! It’s not like a lot of people wrote about your missing tooth and mask or anything! I sure didn’t (*Whistles casually*)!
All kidding aside, people write stories because as fans, we have curiosities. Sure, there’s a handful of fans who’ll roll their eyes but they do click on the story and read it. Plus, there a lot of people who are interested in the story, likely more people interested than not interested and that’s why the stories are written.
Anyways, this will be Tiger’s first time at the Phoenix Open in 14 years. I can only imagine the reaction he’ll get on the 16th hole!
So, with the Waste Management Phoenix Open upon us, we’ll be seeing a field full of unbelievable talent. Better warm up your popcorn and put some extra butter (I like hot sauce on mine) on it because it’s going to be a duel of golf titans this week!
Hit me up on Twitter @ChiGolfRadio because I’m weird and tweet about sports and golf and stuff and things about things!
Oh, and since we got into the video games thing, feel free to connect with me on the PlayStation Network! Maybe we could play some golf games and stuff!
