Ardmore, Pa. – A sweaty Tiger Woods hadn’t even hit the course at Merion Golf Club East for his U.S. Open practice round Tuesday, but he was clearly already exhausted with questions about his recent spat with fellow golfer Sergio Garcia. The pair shook hands prior to Monday’s practice round but Woods said the encounter was nothing more than that.
“No we didn’t discuss anything,” Woods told a crowd of reporters. ”He came up and said hi and that was it. It’s already done. We’ve already gone through it all. It’s time for the U.S. Open and we’re going to tee it up in two days.”
Woods touched on a number of topics, calling Philadelphia “one of the great sporting towns in the country,” and discussing how the week’s wet weather could affect the course’s play this weekend. He even appeared taken aback when one of the media personalities firing questions at him ended up being his 22-year-old niece, fellow golfer Cheyenne Woods, who asked him what he planned to do to relax off the course so he could perform on it.
“I didn’t expect that,” Woods said with a smile, following a long pause. “Off the course we have a great crew at the house and are going to have fun. Tomorrow make sure you’re….6:30 dinner, is that all right? Perfect.”
