There Is A New Intimidator In Town

After Greg Norman’s comments that Tiger is intimidated by Rory McIlroy, we knew the Wednesday Tour Championship news conference would have some Rory/Tiger intimidation questions.

Woods said that “It’s got to be the hair” when asked about the comments.  He also said “No, no one is the size of Ray Lewis who is going to hit me coming over the middle, so this is a different kind of sport. We go out there and we play our own game. And see where it falls at the end of the day.”  I think Woods is pretty relaxed.

Rory chimed in also and said that Tiger has a new nickname for him, The Intimidator.  Rory then added “No, how can I intimidate Tiger Woods? I mean, the guy’s got 75 or 70-whatever PGA Tour wins, 14 majors. I mean, he’s been the biggest thing ever in our sport.”

Rory and Tiger are #1 and #2 in the Fed Ex standings and paired together in the closing event, The Tour Championship.  Should be a great tourney, with an exciting ending on Sunday.  No matter what happens it is good to see Tiger joking around for a change.
