Chilly reception for Woods
Pebble Beach - It was chilly enough as Tiger Woods played his practice round on Tuesday. As he waited for two groups ahead of him on the 10th tee, it got even cooler.
The gallery parted, and Tom Watson stepped onto the tee.
Watson made small talk with some of the players, the gallery and commentator Roger Maltbie, but made no effort to speak to Woods, who was sitting on the bench. Woods never made eye contact with Watson or any attempt to speak to him.
Watson was critical of Woods earlier this year, saying that along with needing to show more humility after his downfall, he needed to clean up his language on the course.
Both are US Open champions at Pebble Beach and Stanford alumni.
