About (Late) Last Night: Tiger Woods talks with Jimmy Fallon, but doesn't say much [video]
Tiger Woods had his first late-night television interview Wednesday night with Jimmy Fallon, but we didn't hear too much from him about all the tabloid drama he's been in for the past couple of years, or much of anything, for that matter. Fallon didn't so much talk with Woods as talk at him.
Fallon thanks Woods for all the comedic fodder he's provided, then lists all the wonderfully hilarious double entendres golf provides, then describes -- to the man who owns it -- all the stuff he's seen about his house, then tells Woods that his golf game has improved.
What we hear from Woods is simply illuminating: Thanks... Uh-huh... Ha-ha... He doesn't wear any of his Masters jackets because they aren't "cool" to wear like that (even on St. Patrick's Day). Oh, and his caddy's name is Steve.
Woods is notoriously taciturn and naturally a difficult interview. But it would have been nice if Fallon, who was exceedingly polite and wary of stepping on Woods' toes, put in the extra effort to get something out of his guest. He should have asked a good question.
