Golf Headline: 'Tiger Takes First Commercial Flight in 10 Years'
The 41-year-old Woods missed the cut at the Farmers Insurance Open. Then, due to protests at Los Angeles International Airport, he couldn't reach a private plane across a terminal so he hopped on a commercial flight instead.
Golf can be such a humbling game. I wonder how many autographs Tiger signed on that flight.
I've flown out of LAX many times, but never during protests (that I can recall). I usually arrive two hours before my flight and visit the Starbucks. It's a big, noisy airport. No one bothers me. And then I get on a plane and fly to Charlotte or wherever.
Yes, every silly little thing about Tiger is news. Yes, I'm having a little fun with that sad truth.
