Tiger Woods Lacks "Street Smarts"
By mustang6560 on 9/22/11
Add Greg Norman to the list.
In an interview with Golf Magazine, the two-time major champion from Down Under said he thinks Tiger Woods lacks the "street smarts" to win another major.
"I'd love to talk to Tiger about it, guy to guy," Norman said. "The president of the United States [Bill Clinton], when he came to my house, wanted to talk to me guy to guy. We all put our underpants on the same way, one leg at a time. So we sit down and have a chat until two o'clock in the morning."Bold statement? Not really, the Shark is known for being outspoken. What's bold is Greg dissed Tiger in one breath, and then went on to say he'd love to sit "guy to guy" with Tiger for a chat. Maybe it's just me, but I'm not sure Tiger would want to sit down guy to guy with a guy who insulted him.
I was talking with a friend last night about Tiger and his mental fortitude and we both agreed, since golf is such a mental sport, it is going to take a lot before Tiger wins again. So in one respect, I do tend to agree with Greg. However, I don't see the need to continually answer questions about Tiger. If someone asked me about Tiger, I'd say, "Let's see how the next couple of season play out. He has the talent and the determination to win and when he figures out how to manage his new life off the course, watch out!"
The full interview will be published in the November issue of Golf Magazine.

is that the perfect tiger question response or what? you should circulate that through the tour so everyone can have it.
Sounds like Greg feels like he doesn't know enough about Tiger's underpants.
