Recently, Tiger Woods has transformed into a type of coveted secret prototype. Every time we see him, it feels like we’re getting a glimpse at something — someone — who is not fully ready for public consumption. And what we saw yesterday outside of Washington D.C. was definitely not ready for public consumption.
On hand for media day at Congressional Country Club, site of the Quicken Loans National, Woods gave a brief press conference — spoiler alert: no update on his return and no timetable, either — before stepping up to the forward tee on the par-3 10th hole as part of Quicken Loans’ ‘Shot for Heroes‘ promotion. What happened next was not pretty.
Whoever’s idea it was to trot Tiger out there without a warm up and national television cameras rolling might want to update their résumé.
