Report: Tiger Woods to answer questions from fans, not media, at Quail Hollow

Tiger600As he usually does, Tiger Woods will answer questions next week before the start of the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow. What's unusual is who will be asking the questions.
Instead of taking questions from the media, Woods will only answer questions from his fans. According to, Woods will post a video on his website Monday and answer questions from Facebook and Twitter.
"We've been thinking about this for a couple of months now," Woods's agent Mark Steinberg told on Friday night. "We wanted to have a little bit more direct interaction with fans, and they've been very good to him over the years. We're probably a little bit behind with social media and this is a way to do that."
Steinberg said it was not a response to any negative media coverage, and Woods would only do this a few times a year. Steinberg also said Woods would continue to meet with the media after his rounds, and before the start of major championships.
Woods returns to Quail Hollow for the first time since 2010. He is coming off his worst finish (T40) at the Masters since he turned pro. Woods is also scheduled to play the following week at the Players Championship. More Tiger: Life in Pictures | Childhood Photos | SI Covers (Photo: David Cannon/Getty Images)
