Tiger tales

Well, I'm shocked.

Apparently, Tiger Woods, um, stretched the truth a bit in his account of the Garcia Incident at the TPC Saturday. Woods claimed he got the go-ahead from the marshals to pull a club from his bag while Garcia was still setting up over his own shot, stirring the crowd and (Garcia complained) disrupting Garcia's concentration.

Well, now come the marshals, calling B.S. on that.

Couple of thoughts on this, neither related to the other:

1. You mean Tiger Woods might have lied? Strange. He's never lied before (eye roll).

2. You mean just the crowd starting to murmur disrupted Garcia's concentration?

Look, I get the culture of golf -- the tiptoeing around, the whispering like you're in church or something -- but I also find it comical. It takes no more concentration to line up a putt than it does for a batter to face a 98-mph heater. Yet the golfer needs total silence, and the batter has 40,000 people screaming in his ear.

What that suggests to me is golfers must have the lousiest concentration on earth. Just sayin'.
