"I like the new Tiger, as well."

Stephen Ames, you're off the hook!

Tiger, responding to Rory Sabbatini's inexplicably stupid (even for him) comment about Tiger being "more beatable than ever":

Q. Did you have a reaction to what Rory said yesterday about how he thinks you might be more beatable now than ever?

TIGER WOODS: Well, if I remember the quote correctly, he said he likes the new Tiger. I figure I've won 9 out of 12 and I've won three times this year, the same amount he's won in his career. So I like the new Tiger, as well.

Tiger 1, Rory 0.
