What They Said, What They Meant: Tom Watson-Tiger Woods edition


HOYLAKE, England -- The gift that is Tom Watson keeps on giving. Unless it’s a Tiger question. The 64-year-old made the British Open cut, played just in front of Woods Saturday at Royal Liverpool and graciously answered media questions after his third-round 75. Until you know who came up.

Q. Have you talked to Tiger this week?
TOM WATSON: I just said hello to him. Which, if you aren’t aware, is my nice way of saying, we don’t sit down and shoot the breeze even though we both went to Stanford, we both love links golf and we should have plenty to talk about.

Q. Anything else to talk about the Ryder Cup?
TOM WATSON: I just said hello. Thanks so much for asking essentially the same question, again. You know, in hindsight -- the five seconds since you last asked a question I really don’t want to answer, I wanted to talk Stanford football with Tiger, but it just wasn’t the right time to catch up with my old buddy. My old pal. My kindred spirit.
