Undercover pro says Tiger Woods is pretty friendly
You might not know Tiger Woods but somebody who plays with and around him does and that person wrote about him this month.
Think you know Tiger Woods?
You don't. None of us do.
But the undercover pro contributing to GolfDigest's monthly magazine actually does, and he says he actually a pretty friendly guy despite the hardened exterior shell.
"One thing most people don't realize about Tiger Woods is that he's open to playing with anybody. He usually gets to the course before the sun comes up and plays with the same cadre of guys. But if you set your alarm early, he won't big-time you.
"I haven't tried too hard to break in and get close to Tiger. But he calls me by name, even though I've never been more than a Category 2 player out here. (Category 2 means you didn't win a tournament the year before, and your exemption status comes from finishing in the top 125 on the money list; more on the categories later.) The point is, Tiger's guarded, but he's not going to walk past you like you don't exist. He's super focused, which a handful of players have mistaken for something else. I don't blame Tiger. He's in a tricky spot."
The whole thing is pretty intriguing and includes a lot of information I didn't know on how golfers are paired for different events.
You should definitely give it a read.
