Between Shots: Tiger on 60 Minutes

Day 157 without playing golf

I was reading the Houston Chronicle online today and they were bemoaning Ed Bradley’s 60 Minutes interview with Tiger Woods. “Bradley tosses Tiger some softballs,” they wrote.

Softballs? It was more like tee ball.

I didn’t care. I was just interested in seeing golf’s main man away from “the office.” Just seeing Tiger wear something different than his Nike uniform was interesting to me.

Tiger might have got his nickname from his dad, but he got his killer instinct from his mom. She said you have to kill your opponent. Yes, she used the word “kill.” Remind you of anybody?

Bradley asked Tiger what happened when he crossed his mom growing up. Tiger said, let’s just say it was hard to sit down.

  1. I agree with Dave, not every celebrity has to be interrogated on TV. What’s wrong with a ‘nice’ interview in a comfortable setting to find out a bit more about the man behind the public image.
