Included below is the full exchange where Tiger Woods took a new stance on drug testing in golf, but before that, check out this Rally Killer of the Year candidate. Apparently Tiger has changed his schedule and is going to take the chartered jet to Ireland with his teammates Monday and Tuesday.
Q. Are you going to the K Club?
TIGER WOODS: Yeah, I'm going. We're all going together. I had to reschedule a couple things.
Q. When are you coming back?
TIGER WOODS: Wednesday morning. I get back Wednesday morning here.
Q. What's the puppy's name?
TIGER WOODS: Yogi, like Yogi Bear. He looks more like Yogi Bear.
Q. What kind?
TIGER WOODS: It's a Labradoodle.
Back to golf (laughter).
Q. Obviously you thought it was important enough to reschedule things to go next week. What was the thinking behind that?
TIGER WOODS: I've seen The K Club enough, but just to be with the guys. We're going there as a team and going there just to hang out and relax and play a little golf. Most of the guys haven't played the golf course very much, and if I can help out at all, I can hopefully, and maybe pass on a few tidbits that I've learned over the years of playing there.
Do we have a winner? Certainly a rally killer of the year finalist! And the exchange on drug testing, unfortunatey, minus the questions.
TIGER WOODS: There are a lot of things I've shifted since I've been on Tour, a lot of things. That's just one of them.
TIGER WOODS: I think certainly it can be in the future, and I think we should be proactive instead of reactive, and I think that we should just like the driver situation, we were reactive there instead of proactive.
I just think that we should be ahead of it and keep our sport as pure as can be. This is a great sport and it's always been clean.
TIGER WOODS: Have a program in place before guys are actually doing well, know who's doing it, and then create a program. I think that would be reactive.
TIGER WOODS: I'd be in favor of that, no doubt about that. I would be in favor of that, yes. I don't know if we could get that implemented in time. It's fine with me.
TIGER WOODS: It depends on what it is because each sport kind of takes a few things off of it, and some sports are pretty strict about what they can take. They can't even take aspirin. I don't know how that would work.
