Tiger Confirms He'll Sit Out Grand Slam of Golf

September 12, 2007

ATLANTA--Golf's Big Two, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, spent some time with the media Wednesday, and both expressed opinions about whether they view the FedEx Cup playoffs as a success. Read the transcripts of today's interviews at the Tour Championship.

The best moment might've been when Tiger was asked if $10 million still gets his attention. . . . Woods nodded his head, slowly.

Later, Tiger confirmed on his website that he will not be playing in the PGA Grand Slam of Golf in Bermuda next month. Instead, Jim Furyk will join Masters champion Zach Johnson, U.S. Open champion Angel Cabrera and British Open champ Padraig Harrington in the Oct. 15-17 event at the Mid Ocean Club.
