Northern Irish golfer Graeme McDowell has taken to the popular micro blogging site Twitter to clear the air about certain comments he made about Tiger Woods last week during a press meet.
McDowell spoke to a group from the media during his appearance at the Arnold Palmer Invitational which took place in Florida and a part of his interview made its way into the official website of the US PGA Tour where it is written how the Northern Irishman believes that Tiger has lost that force field of invincibility that used to surround him during his heyday.
He also added that the aura emanating from him is that strong anymore.
G-Mac also commented that that doesn’t change the fact that he is still Tiger Woods, the greatest player he has ever seen or played with in his opinion. McDowell also said that he doesn’t remember the first time he played with him but remembers that he had a certain ‘wow’ factor surrounding him. It was almost as if he was playing a different game than he was. But he also said that players get older and things change and that is how it should be.
And now, McDowell has taken to Twitter to comment on the interview saying that some of the comments he made during that interview have been taken out of context as well. He wrote that 90% of the questions he was asked during the press meet at Bay Hill were about Tiger speculating where his game was at the moment.
He also wrote that many of the comments he had made were taken out of context and spun in a negative light which didn’t make good reading when reviewed later. He also hailed the impact Woods has had on the sport in his brief rebuttal on Twitter.
