Tiger Woods says he's in "a no-win fight", braces for inevitable baldness

By Luke Kerr-Dineen

Don't worry, Tiger. We know how it feels.

In his one-on-one interview with Fox Sports, a portion of which was published online on Wednesday, Tiger Woods gave the world an extraordinary admission about something that has been weighing on people's minds for quite a while: his hair loss.

It's not something that Tiger hasn't noticed, but he seems in good spirits about it.

"I'm comfortable with it, but my hairline isn't," Tiger said, after being asked by host Colleen Dominiguez if he was comfortable aging. "I have a nice skylight [at home] and I'm at the point where if I don't wear a hat, I can feel the heat."

Then Dominiguez asked the big question: if Tiger would ever consider shaving off the rest of his hair.

"I think I will, but I'm fighting the cause, and I'm fighting it hard," Woods said. "It's a no-win fight, but I'm hanging in there."

To get a better idea of what he's talking about, here's Tiger's hairline at the 1997 Masters, compared to his hairline at the 2014 British Open.
