A minute long news conference at a Augusta Georgia Tiger Woods that taking quite a few questions.
But that is aside from the fact probably set on lied to myself I lied to others I -- myself.
He dodged some questions about prescription drug usage particularly right before the car accident that brought this entire.
Situation to light.
-- talked about and -- in use but mostly when his father died and then was so I've gone through.
Health problems not to at the time going -- the car crash but also addressed to some degree the HGH controversy that we talked about going with this doctor Anthony.
I tell you this Canadian doctor and denied once again ever using any kind of performance enhancing drug close.
Okay so we've got our team assembled here we have Chris -- are on Fox Business sports expert MarketWatch media -- columnist Jon Friedman.
And premiere global sports executive vice president and VP of sports travel dot com Robert tuchman Jon Friedman his performance.
It was -- the media with terrible the media didn't follow questions -- no direct questions due to -- -- -- two gee -- Tiger Woods is here too much to respectfully in what way John -- will it give us an example something you would would have asked about I would have asked them about who the real question would seriously -- about.
Can you win the masters every if you win tournaments ever again how do you feel about that.
The question to politely with two gentle though too respectful.
I I I agree with you John they asked him what they had asking NASA about dot taleo why did you choose -- Christine Brennan USA today asked the question is a follow up that was it was -- to follow those also got a much of what else they could've asked.
Because the fault was OK so you went to see doctor taleo with the for the -- PR PM for this blood spinning.
But many doctors do that why did you choose doctor delay and he still about -- -- it was -- athletes as of long history of working with athletes.
I'm not sure Alison could have asked that question again at the end answered that the way I think Livingston would directly about the -- when he actually did and how he feels about it now and what happened back then.
And -- -- the other question about.
Tiger's image how he feels that have money for example.
The questions here about six money in golf.
That was all about golf nobody asked about the women but I -- -- and I'm still remember what we were talking about when we first walked into the room.
This is a room full of golf writers for the most part it's not that he and sees the world it's not even that you know a lot of the you know that the tabloids in the world.
Many of these people were golf quite as we recognize them as golf -- -- -- -- -- for years they asked questions about his putting.
Now how -- -- -- hurt him over the years at Augusta because those -- the question the golf -- and asked me to talk specifically to your point about how many of the people in the room were his friends and he expects -- to continue to -- his -- went bankrupt -- you know I really think -- in one way what -- it came down -- is he was trained really well you know to brush off those questions and when the hard questions when Adam.
No matter how hard you're gonna go Adam.
He was still -- a -- you know just put it all out.
And he did that well he said at one point this of what -- -- -- rehab -- -- said that's personal right OK that's fine but if you go back to the drug issue which is a huge issue when you talk about professional athletes.
The -- question.
Was that a factor.
In that accident his response was.
Oh it was -- you know there's -- there's the police is in our data but in the Malia or I was find a 166 dollars and and that's that's immediate trained -- a question I'm not sure he -- do anything else though Chris.
Had no idea -- that's what it was in the out the other question to what they said why did you speak to the police were up right after the accident happened he said I did everything by the letter of the law John and that's just.
That's what his lawyers told a mistake that -- just say now and forever I -- -- -- is that -- he's playing this tournament right now is money is -- image.
It's CBS involved in this is -- is PGA who's putting pressure on kinda play this week I didn't hear much from opt out or addressed directly to the sponsors and all this at all we take -- -- -- -- I can stock price a moment ago.
And tiger did speak at the beginning of his remarks have he had spoken to some of the sponsors.
When he was going through all this but we never heard that directly addressed -- following sports business for a living in the surprised by that.
Well you know.
I am and it away and just answer the question also you know why he came back for this tournament well.
This is gonna be as close -- in his eyes is broken off as possible where he's not going to be bombarded by.
Tons of -- you saw those people who get the sponsors back but he -- he.
It will take time but he will get sponsors back but I really think it's going to be at least a few years and again he's got to stay out of trouble you know he's got to stay at about one -- O'Connell and if you went.
And -- point that was made about not talking to the police why didn't speak to the police and I think his comment right after was.
I spoke to my sponsors yeah I mean -- I don't get -- out there would have been the fourth.
Talk to the police and I -- their sponsor very good point thank you guys for all coming and that's exactly when he addressed speaking to the sponsors when he was asked about whether he should have been speaking.
To the police floats on the playing golf we'll see what the ratings are like this -- -- thank you to our guests and our crew here.
