I managed to land an interview with Tiger Woods this weekend in Asheville, North Carolina. Fabulous assignment, until I fell flat on my face, literally—more on that later. Woods was in Asheville to promote his first designed golf course for the US, The Cliffs at High Carolina, opening in 2010. You’ll see parts of that interview airing throughout the day Monday on CNBC.
You can see the entire interview below.
Woods talked about his recovery since having knee surgery after his memorable win at the U.S. Open. “I hope to play next year,” he says, “but I don’t know when. That’s the most frustrating thing.” He says he can chip and putt, but his surgeons and trainer won’t tell him when he can swing a club. “I can watch other people hit balls,” he laughed, explaining that he can still go to the driving range. When I asked him if it kills him to watch others play when he can’t, he answered, “No, not really, because I’d probably embarrass myself.”Page 1 of 7 | Next Page
