Tiger Woods Is Pulling a LeBron James
By mustang6560 on 7/11/11
So is Tiger Woods taking his talents to South Beach today or not?

UPDATE: Tiger Woods' agent Mark Steinburg, not Tiger himself, was interviewed by Kelly Tilghman this morning about his future plans, again NOT Tiger's. I think I speak for everyone when I say, "Who cares!" (LINK)

The Golf Channel said yesterday via Twitter that Tiger was going to sit down with Kelly Tilghman for what seemed eerily similar to LeBron James' "The Decision". However, Mark Steinburg, Tiger's agent, told the AP this morning there will be no such announcement.

Hopefully Mark learned something from the backlash LeBron James received for his PR nightmare and decided to cancel Tiger's interview with Kelly. In today's day and age, if you have an announcement to make, tweet it. You have 140 characters, which is plenty to say "Guys, I'm out for the rest of 2011. Doctors orders."

I can't help but think Tiger is only trying to keep his name in the news during the week of the British Open. First, why make an announcement at all? Second, why make the announcement during the week of the Open Championship. Third, why sit down for an interview to make the announcement when we all know you dislike the media? I think Tiger misses the attention...

Clearly, something is going on in world of Tiger Woods that he feels like he needs to get off his chest. And naturally, there are several things that come to mind including:
  • He's out for the rest of 2011

  • He had (or needs to have) knee surgery

  • He wants to comment on his relationship with Anthony Galea

  • He wants Elin back?
What do you think he is going to announce? Have some fun with the speculation.

He's going the Chad Ochocinco route, and changing his name to Bad Knees Brown.

I'll bet he's out for 2011. Is there really any reason to come back at all? missed the US open, missing the Open championship, sucked everywhere else. Just not worth coming back in 2011. Save it for 2012 and come back strong.

I think your "who cares" is off base. Maybe we wont listen to the news conference, but are interested in when tiger will be healthy both physically and mentally and be back on the course contending. Anybody who thinks he wont win multiple times in the future is a fool... Anybody who thinks that he will win at the same pace of 8 years ago is also a fool.

@TeT- you care about what the future holds for Mark Steinberg?

Trav says:
Convenient timing of announcement, with his client not playing this weekend and out of the news, almost.

mjaber says:
So it was Tiger's agent, and not Tiger, pulling a LeBron... or was his agent just pulling a Tiger?

jwilder78 says:
Ha, his agent pulled a Tiger...

I had to reread this to verify that it was an interview of the agent, about the agent's plans. So I agree w/ mustang -- WHO CARES
