Golf Australia Express : OTG Express 159 - PGA Wrap
T IGER Woods has long been accused of giving nothing at a press conference, and now it has come back to bite him. Woods got awkward silence after cracking a joke during his pre-tournament presser. Asked if he thought he was a step behind the main challengers for the majors, Woods deadpanned: “No, I can still walk the same pace on the golf course.” He broke into a big smile, obviously expecting the laughs to follow but was met with crickets and tumbleweeds.

Japan’s Hiroshi Iwata fired a major championship record-equalling 9-under 63 in the second round. In the media centre after his round, an eager scribe asked Iwata through his interpreter: “You shot a 62 at Thailand in the second round, can you compare this round to the 62 that you shot in Thailand.” Iwata’s reply: “Just one shot different. Nothing else.” IWATA IS THE KING OF COMEDY 7 25 DAYS IS A LONG TIME IN GOLF 8
