The Golf Blog says: Veteran golf writer Dan Jenkins wrote an admittedly fake interview with Tiger Woods for Golf Digest. Yes, Golf Digest. This is no April Fool’s joke. Jenkins painted the fake Tiger in a very unflattering light.
Tiger came out today with a response, calling out Jenkins and Golf Digest for their lack of integrity and journalistic ethics. Tiger wrote in the Players’ Tribune: “The truth is, Jenkins has no idea how I think or feel about any of the things he claims to know about, which is why he had to make things up. Frustration or resentment because I have not been more available to him should not give him a license for an underhanded attack on me as an athlete, as a professional and as a person. I guess Golf Digest’s editors believe this is a good way to sell more magazines.”
Golf Digest should be ashamed of itself for publishing such garbage. As Tiger put it, the article’s not true and not funny. Since when did Golf Digest become a tabloid?Tweet
