Tiger Woods on Intimidated Opponents: That’s Their F**king Issue

Woods talked about his mindset at his Tiger Jam charity clinic.

Thanks to a slew of injuries and off-course issues, Tiger Woods no longer has the claws he used to on the fairway.

Woods used to be an intimidating figure for other golfers to play against – and he’s completely unapologetic about it.

Speaking to golfers at his Tiger Jam charity clinic, Woods said the only thing he worries about on the course is himself – not what his opponent is doing or thinking.
