Feud for thought

Ernie [Els] gave me grief about my belly putter. I only used it for two months. I won my second tournament, the [2004] Deutsche Bank TPC of Europe. It was portrayed in the press that he felt it was cheating. That's his opinion. I was disappointed that he brought out those feelings after I had just won the biggest tournament of my life. Other guys had won with long putters and nothing was said. I've known him since I was 5. It was touchy for a while.

My golf hero

Cue the 'cue

Heir guitar

My dad was in a band and played guitar. My brother's in a band. I play too. I have a guitar headcover! I've got a whole music room in my house with lots of memorabilia, signed guitars by different bands, pictures that inspire me. It's a big part of my life. I'm a frustrated rock star [


Not bad, Tiger

I was playing with Tiger Woods at Isleworth [Tiger's home course in Florida]. The 17th hole is a par 5, and he cut the corner with his tee shot. He has about 290 yards to the flag, which is way back on a long green. And he hits driver to five feet from the semirough. That's the best shot I've ever seen.
