There was the strange scenario for a handful of seconds after Tiger Woods second round of the WGC – Bridgestone Invitational when he stood in front of the microphone in the Firestone ‘flash quote’ area, but with the few journalists present without a question to ask the 14-time Major Champion.
Finally, someone spoke up to ask Woods to summarize his play over the two days.
“Okay sweet,” said Woods.
“I hit it good, made nothing, and we can go and eat now (smiling).”
However for those not present and reading the transcript, Woods’ remark could be interpreted as though he was not going to answer any more questions.
But that’s not what transpired.
All his golfing life, Woods has been interviewed after each and every round he’s contested, and apart from the odd occasion, Woods has obliged.
He posted a Firestone second round 72 to fall back to two over par in an event he’s won eight times in 12 appearances.
“I figured something out finally on the 17th hole, but too little, too late,” he added.
“I’m sure it helped on that little one and a half foot tap-in on the last hole.”
Woods happily answered a further four questions before heading off to lunch.
But not on the official transcript was a question asked by a member of the PGA Tour website editorial team as Woods headed to the air-conditioned comfort of the clubhouse.
“So Tiger, what will you be having for lunch”.
Woods responded, and very much tongue in cheek: “A cheese burger, fries and a strawberry shake!”
