We are all agreed that Tiger Woods is a great golfer. Most of us think Dan Jenkins is a famous golf correspondent. Well look what happened:
Dan could not get an interview with Tiger, so he did something really journalistically great in my eyes: a “fake” interview with Tiger. Probably much better than Tiger “mumbling” answers and not saying much.
But Tiger Woods did not like satirical interview Dan Jenkins published in the latest edition of Golf Digest, and he wants to let everyone know about it.
Woods took to Derek Jeter’s The Players’ Tribune , sharing his distaste for the piece.
“Jenkins faked an interview, which fails as parody, and is really more like a grudge-fueled piece of character assassination,” Woods wrote. “Journalistically and ethically, can you sink any lower?”
The piece took aim at Woods in several ways, suggesting the former world No. 1 is cheap, likes to dismiss people who work for him and treats his friends poorly.
Not sure you’re aware of this, but back when you were at the top of your game I was also the guy who said only two things could stop you from winning more majors than Jack: injury or a bad marriage.
You wrote that?
In a moment of brilliance, yes.
You nailed it.
