Woods sidesteps question over Olympic security


DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – Following his second-round 73 at the Dubai Desert Classic, Tiger Woods was asked if he’s relieved that his girlfriend, downhill skier Lindsey Vonn, was missing the Olympics because of security concerns in Sochi.

“I’m relieved she’s not competing because of the situation in her knee,” Woods said. “It was very unstable. As she alluded to, it was unstable just walking so going 80 mph and having a hard turn, I don’t think that’s really the wisest thing to do.”

Vonn withdrew from the Games earlier this month.
