We may have a new diversionary interview tactic! Just label it speculation and therefore it's inadmissible!
The only question: did Tim Finchem come up with this before Tiger Woods? Or the other way around?
Finchem, in a Q&A with Larry Dorman where he didn't like the question:
But this is a speculative question that is focused on a scenario we do not see happening.
Tiger, at Quail Hollow, was posed the question about Hank Haney's status as his instructor. Thomas Bonk writes:
In the meantime, there is certain to be some questions about the status of Haney, who was not with Woods at Quail Hollow or TPC Sawgrass. Woods had a chance to diffuse any hint of a problem last week at Quail Hollow when he was asked if Haney was in trouble.
"That's entirely speculation," Woods said.
That's also not denying it.
Since the Commissioner went to law school I think he's going to have to take the blame for this one.
Meanwhile, Brian Wacker makes the case that Tiger hasn't been nearly as bad as stats suggest.
