This is some of what people tuned into Nike’s live Tiger Web Talkback Tuesday night learned.
While there were a lot of equipment questions in a promotion for Nike’s new Victory Red irons, Woods was open to other questions, too.
On how his golf course design philosophy as an architect will accommodate average players: “I’ve always believed in how links golf is played, that you should have an area where you can run the golf ball up. I don’t believe in forced carries. I hate bunkers that sit in the front part of the green where a player can’t run the ball on the green. I don’t think that’s right. You don’t see that overseas or in links golf.”
On what era other than this he would have most liked to have played: “I would have like to have gone head to head in Jack Nicklaus’ prime. I think we would have enjoyed that. He certainly would have gotten me, and I would have gotten him.”
On what profession he would have pursued if he weren’t a golfer: “If I wasn’t successful on Tour those first few years, I would most likely have joined the Navy and tried to become a Navy Seal.”
