As probably everyone knows by now, Tiger Woods and Nick Faldo are paired in the first two rounds of the British Open starting tomorrow.
Apparently Tiger is still miffed by comments Faldo made about his swing during the 2005 Buick Invitational. Woods doesn’t abide swing criticism. Faldo doesn’t care, says he’s just doing his job.
According to an article I just read at seattletimes.com, maybe they’ll settle their differences mano-a-mano:
“British bookmaking company William Hill is offering 6-4 odds they will not shake hands on the first tee Thursday, and 25-1 odds Woods and Faldo will come to blows at some point during the first round. Those odds started at 100-1.”
If I’m Faldo, I’d bite his ear. But I guess in a sense he already has.
