Tiger Woods spoke to the press on Wednesday at the Quicken Loans National, one of two events run by the Tiger Woods Foundation — the other being the Deutsche Bank Championship at the TPC Boston.

Some of the topics Tiger discussed, included:

  • His Health: “Getting better”
  • The Tiger Woods Foundation: “20 years goes by fast, real excited, big things “
  • The Olympics: “Wished it was stronger field, liked to have seen it set up like a WGC event”
  • His Game: “Numbers good off the tee, actually gained distance”
  • Mentoring Younger Tour Players: “Close with Jason Day”
  • The PGA Tour: “Misses it badly”
  • The Proper Term for PGA Tour Champions Tour(?): “Seniors, I mean Champions… there you go”
  • The USGA Fiasco: “Awful, no one had a clue”
  • The Advances in equipment: “Davis [Love III] was playing a persimmon [wooden] driver when I beat him in 96… it’s freaky”

The discussion he gets into about the advances in equipment is worth the 2 minute watch.
