Tiger Blog Post: ‘Family’ Mention Leaves Out Elin

Tiger Woods posted a blog entry today on his official website that gives his version of what he’s been up to since The Masters. It’s the first somewhat candid blog entry by Woods since his Thanksgiving car accident. (Designed to combat tabloid reports about his family’s activities?)

Tiger Woods Blog Post: Family Reference Doesn't Include Elin

In the post, Woods addresses his strong language at The Masters, congratulates Phil Mickelson for winning the tournament. (Finally). He also notes a recent round of golf at Isleworth in which he shot 63 but was apparently not joined by Michael Jordan and Fred Couples. RadarOnline.com posted photos yesterday that it claimed showed Woods, Jordan and Couples playing golf at Isleworth on last Tuesday.

The most interesting part of the blog entry though was Woods recounting his recent “family” time. Read more…

PGA Player Refused Tiger’s Invite To Friday ‘Talk’

Prominent PGA Tour pro and longtime friend of Tiger Woods John Cook confirmed to the ORLANDO SENTINEL today that he received an invitation to attend Woods’ “talk” in Orlando on Friday.

(Longtime Tiger friend Cook spurned Tiger’s invite)

The Sentinel with his response: “No, he’s not going.”

Cook, who has known Woods for well over a decade, also provided some details on Woods’ ordeal.

“As far as I know, he never had a phone. I know the next day he was gone [from Isleworth]. He hasn’t had contact with anybody other than face-to-face, which I hadn’t had.”

Dude never had a phone? Wow. Knowing Woods’ insane penchant for privacy, hopefully giving up that info won’t mean we’ll soon be calling Cook a “former friend” of Woods.

Also worth noting: Cook played with Woods at the 2007 Tavistock Cup - the same event that TMZ.com reports will be the site of Woods’ return to golf. Though Cook told the Sentinel he had no idea what Woods’ future plans were:

“I can’t even speculate what he might come out with. It’s great to have him back. To what extent, we don’t know. We have no idea what his plans are.”

Speaking of invites to Woods’ maniacally-controlled lecture talk tomorrow, we’ve confirmed at least one of the attendees. And possibly two more.
