Hey, Tiger, I was just wondering if you and your wife ever go out on dates? I mean, I never see you out in People magazine, and I know the paparazzi are everywhere!
Katie from Newark, N.J.
Katie, I think Elin and I have avoided a lot of media attention because we're kind of boring. When we do go out, we like to go to the movies. When we go for dinner, it's usually at the same few restaurants. Mostly, people are very nice and just want to say hi. There are a lot of evenings we'll just rent a movie and stay at home. Sometimes, friends will come over, and we'll play video games. My record is pretty impressive in "Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10," but I never pick myself.
Are you friends with the Manning brothers? They are doing amazing this year, and my dad and I were just wondering if you guys know each other.
Lewis from Portland, Ore.
I do know them, and I'm pretty good friends with Peyton. He's a big guy and a good golfer. Recently, he invited me to stand on the sidelines for a Colts-Dolphins game. I've done that a couple times before in Tampa with the Bucs, and it still amazes me how fast the players are and how hard they hit. Even the linemen can really move. I'm just glad I chose golf as my sport.
I am enrolled in golf for this school year, and I am trying to practice as much as possible during the winter. What would you suggest for indoor golf conditioning?
Jon from Milwaukee
Jon, Milwaukee has a great golf tradition, and you have two outstanding PGA Tour players from Wisconsin with Steve Stricker and Jerry Kelly. I think I would do a couple things during the winter. First, see if there's a club nearby that has an indoor facility. Try to work on all your clubs and focus on specific shots. Also, get to the gym. If you can, find a trainer that understands conditioning for golf and work with him or her. The winter may be a great time to jump ahead of the competition.
I just wanted you to know that just by your playing each week, you bring my son and I closer. After every one of your tournaments, we talk about the ups downs, etc. Thanks for being you and giving the everyday golf fans some excitement!
Brian from North Royalton, Ohio
Brian, it sounds like you have a relationship with your son similar to the one I had with my pop, and one that I want to have with Charlie, too. It's wonderful that you spend time together and talk. I spent many hours with my pop, and he always tried to make it fun. He and my mom made sure I understood what was important -- school came first -- and always made me feel good at the end of the day.
If you were to go out to a restaurant, what would be one thing that you would HAVE to get on the menu? For me, it's calamari! Thanks, Tiger!
Loren from Mission Hills, Calif.
Loren, I try to eat healthy, but sometimes travel gets in the way. Food that I really like are salmon, broccoli, chicken and fruit. I'll grab a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or some nuts and a Gatorade when I'm playing. My diet definitely isn't perfect, and sometimes chips or chocolate will ruin my good intentions.
