Before his practice round on Tuesday, Tiger Woods headed towards some fans to sign some autographs and after they all pushed forward, he turned and left with a smile.
After his round Tiger spoke about why he didn’t sign for anyone.
“Well, the fence almost came down. So they almost knocked the fence down. It gets dangerous. We had a little girl get crushed today, and she was just on the ground crying. People get so aggressive for autographs. And security is trying to be aggressive to protect the little kids up front. You try and sign, but sometimes the adults start running over the little kids up front, and especially on a fence like that, on a hard fence, it can get dangerous sometimes.”
It’s too bad that overly aggressive adults, desperate to put a Tiger Woods autographed item on eBay or in their homes would endanger children to do so, but I guess that’s the world we live in.
