Tiger On Hand Collision With Lens: "I'm fine."

Randall Mell quotes Tiger about his post-round inadvertent collision with a lens following a dreadful Saturday round. Flatlies.com has the video. Thanks reader Rob for catching it.

Not a Tiger basher, but I've watched in HD like 10 times. It's obvious that he intentionally walked into cameraman. Holding in all the F bombs and club slamming has metastasized itself into a run in with a cameraman. I'm 1:30 into 'Live From', not a mention....

Members of Tigger's Personal Security Detail, six large guys wearing black golf shirts with the letters "Xe" stenciling on the upper left-hand side and shoulers, were last seen beating that photographer with 5-irons in the private parking lot behind the clubhouse.

I am sure some blonde p*orno starlet is kissing his hand better now as we speak.

He reacted just like a Paper Hat

I had the same take as you Fiberspeed, he seemed to subtly veer into him, I think he got enraged by seeing the photog kneeling down preparing to snap the close up pic after his horrid round. He didnt count on hitting his hand against the lens.

What a melodramatic chump...
06.16.2012 | Unregistered CommenterUh...
Clearly the camera man was in the way. It was a narrow path way up a bumpy hill. As soon as Tiger hit him he jumped back where every other person was in a row. Of course you losers bash Tiger over it somehow...unbelievable.
Shipnuck, Elkington, and Reilly said the tournament was ove on Thursday, why are they still playing? Didn't they already give Tiger the trophy.
I'm not a big fan of Shipnuck, but he's paid to write articles that will draw readers and that it did. Seemed like as the stakes and the pressure got higher, Tiger's trust in his swing began to disappear. He has no chance today.

The PING commercial at the beginning was kind of funny.

"Hang around?" Hanging around at 5 back is a ticket for 11th place.

17 year-old Hossler is more mature than Tiger.

For a world class athlete Tiger seems to have trouble working his feet. He is one angry guy.

Although I doubt he'd ever consider one, I think Woods would benefit from a sports psychologist. Earl served that roll.

uhh.... role.

I wish Tiger would've given him a knee in the head and knocked that worthless photog out. What the hell are these guys doing inside the ropes anyhow? The USGA has no control whatsoever. All you Tiger haters can kiss my fat arse.

Go Tiger

Right on pal.

These Tiger haters are sick.

He could give millions to charity and they would find something to say.

Awwh Stanley, Tiger detractors got you down? So sad to hear ... you powder puff.

The sports thug needs to retire.

Tiger did it on purpose, it's as clear as day.
