Hello. I'm Mark Crossfield. Welcome to The Waggle.
00:03
We're talking Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods split.
00:07
Now am I happy or am I sad?
00:09
The whole world I don't think can really work it out.
00:11
Am I happy or am I sad?
00:12
More golf. No love. Ahh it's all just too confusing.
00:16
(upbeat music)
00:21
So Tiger Woods, when asked about the breakup
00:24
with Lindsey Vonn, how is he feeling,
00:26
he said he was sad, he was upset.
00:28
Who wouldn't be, any breakup, but he also said when he gets
00:31
inside those ropes he can concentrate, get in his world,
00:34
get in his zone and do what he needs to do
00:36
for those four hours.
00:38
(crying)
00:40
Lindsey. I don't, how am I gonna play?
00:43
How am I gonna play? It's gone.
00:46
Don't know how I'm gonna do it.
00:48
(upbeat music)
00:58
Four hours, it's the PGA tour. Five to seven hours.
01:02
Always love the story that Lindsey Vonn was questioned
01:05
in an interview about did she enjoy golf or not,
01:07
and she hinted strongly that
01:09
it doesn't really appeal to her.
01:10
You can just imagine the conversations they would've been
01:13
having at home, can't you?
01:14
Know what us golfers are like. We wanna talk golf.
01:19
[Lindsey Impersonator] How was your day then?
01:21
Oh it was amazing, I was practicing my chippin'.
01:23
Hit this chip like that one I hit on 16,
01:25
remember that one?
01:26
Went up the slope, came back down, it stopped on the edge
01:28
and then it went in (mumbles). Yes!
01:32
Sounds great dear.
01:34
Now they've split Tiger's lovely teeth should all be safe.
01:38
Remember the story, he went to the World Cup in Italy
01:41
watching Vonn skiing and lost a tooth. Lost a tooth.
01:47
How d'you lose, he lost one clean out
01:50
from a cameraman apparently.
01:52
(camera hitting teeth)
01:55
You'd have to be pretty accurate, wouldn't you?
01:58
So are we happy or are we sad?
02:01
So the overriding feeling on the World Wide Web
02:04
I think is one of happiness. Generally it's men reporting.
02:08
So the fact that we might have our Tiger back,
02:11
no more distractions, no more love distractions.
02:14
The man is back to win more Majors and there's
02:16
no more excuses. He is here for us.
02:19
He plays for us. Not for himself, all for us.
02:21
And the excuses are all gone.
02:23
Oh, he's got his glutes though.
02:24
He popped that hand out, didn't he. He popped that bone out.
02:26
But you can pop 'em back in, can't he?
02:28
