Tiger Woods gets some earthy advice from...Kid Rock?

February 27, 2015

Everyone, it seems, has advice for Tiger Woods, who has taken a hiatus while he attempts to resurrect his golf career.

Here's some from an unlikely source, Kid Rock, who apparently has joined the Bear's Club in Jupiter, Fla., and visited Woods at his Jupiter Island estate, even hitting balls in his backyard:

"Nice kid," Rock told Rolling Stone. "A little bit of an Eminem and Axl Rose syndrome. Very reclusive, literal, and sometimes you feel a little bad for them. Sometimes they think the world's against them. You gotta loosen up, man! People are gonna talk [bleep]. You just gotta enjoy it!"

He did not elaborate, nor did he reconcile why one might conclude the world is against them when earning tens of millions of dollars from corporations asking that you represent them to large numbers of people.

Rock has become an avid golfer, who played in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am in 2014, is a friend of John Daly's. As for his membership in the Bear's Club, he told Rolling Stone, "If you told me five years ago I'd have to take my hat off and tuck my shirt in, I'd have slapped the taste out of your mouth. Now I'm like, Look at me, hair slicked back, shirt tucked in.'"
