Here is the opening to my Wednesday column about Tiger Woods:


Tiger Woods had just gone full snippy in a Tuesday news conference. He tries to act nice, he really does, but full snippy is right below the surface.

“I think even if I do win a major championship,” Woods replied, “it will still be, ‘You’re not to 18 yet,’ or ‘When will you get to 19?’ It’s always something with you guys. I’ve dealt with that my entire career ever since I was an amateur and playing all the way through and to professional golf. It hasn’t changed.”
