The Tiger Woods green jacket ad

Last time the U.S. Open came to Congressional, The Post printed this amazing Tiger Woods ad in its special section.

Jessica Simpson Sings National Anthem

Here's Jessica Simpson singing the National Anthem before yesterday's ceremonial opening shot. Radar says Simpson "gave Roseanne a run for her money," but I didn't think it was that bad. Of course, Svrluga and I couldn't see a lick of this live, because everyone was standing at attention, and...

Ask Tiger Questions

In advance of the AT&T National, Tiger Woods has agreed to take some questions from Post readers. Send them to asktiger@wpost.com as soon as possible, and we'll forward a selection of them to Tiger, then run his responses July 1 on washingtonpost.com. (If I had the opportunity to ask Tiger...

Cliff Kresge: The Aftermath

I never made it back to Congressional after Cliff Kresge's round on Friday. If you recall, when we left our hero, he was one-under for the tournament, tied with Tiger Woods. Then I went to Philadelphia for a wedding, where my hotel got the Golf Channel, which I watched obsessively,...

Follow Cliff Kresge

Words have meaning. They're not mere trifles, to be scattered aimlessly about like so many range balls. When you write something, you need to stick behind it. Yesterday, I told you all to join the Cliff Kresge movement, before it became standing room only. I promised you that there would...

Drink The Tiger

I tried to talk my way into a few corporate tents yesterday, and was shut out, which was fine. Luckily, a source close to a corporate tent gave me the official recipe for The Tiger, which for all I know has already been published in The Washington Post. I don't...

Stop Watching Tiger Woods

I figured I should watch Tiger play today, at least for a little bit. I lasted one shot. Littles, Official Caps Beat Writer Tarik El-Bashir and I met Tiger and his 817 best friends between the 9th green and the 10th tee. Great rivers of polo-shirt-wearing humanities flowed toward us....

Charley Hoffman Looks Like a Girl

I caught up with Charley Hoffman's threesome as they were making the turn this morning. Hoffman, you might recall, told me the other day that he's "about a four-year-old at heart," so I figured I should see for myself. Anyhow, he doesn't necessarily act like a four-year-old on the course,...

Greg Owen Hates His Middle Name

I've realized it'll be a lot easier to just sit in the media center and type off transcripts. Like this one, with Greg Owen, who apparently is a professional golfer. Question: "I've heard you're a big fan of movies and I noticed your middle name is Clive and there's a...

Phil Mickelson Loves Condi Rice

Phil Mickelson spent July 4 at the White House. He was asked how this came about. "I don't really know how it all came about, but it sure was fun," he said. "It was a very surreal experience to be on the veranda watching the fireworks with both President Bushes...

Rain at the Golf Course

Chick Hernandez, his Comcast SportsyNet crew and I were waiting outside the scorer's shack to interview Bubba Watson. Chick was going to interview him about the rough, or his drives, or something, and I was going to ask him about his pink head covers. Then Armageddon arrived, in the form...

Baby Advice for Tiger Video

If my normally made-for-television voice doesn't do it for you, below you can hear my approaching-death-bed-status voice. You can also see Jason Gore talk about baby poop. It doesn't get much better than that. I think I'm writing about golf for the rest of the day, so be forewarned....

Parenting Advice for Tiger

As someone with a four-month old child, I consider myself slightly more advanced in life than, say, Tiger Woods, who has been a parent a mere two weeks. But I have to admit that I'm not necessarily an expert yet. For example, when it's 9:20 p.m. and the baby's been...

Tiger Woods With Chewbacca

Big photo: Tiger Woods. Smaller photos: Adam Scott, Vijay Singh, Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els. Fine print: "Field to be...

Waiting for Tiger

When I arrived at Congressional at 12:45, there were already two cameramen waiting outside the fountain by the clubhouse's front entrance, just in case Tiger decided to enter from that direction. There was speculation about exactly what sort of Buick he'd be driving. There was chatter about the Tiger mystique....

Golfing With Tiger

Or rather, golfing on Tiger's course in honor of Tiger's tourney while Tiger flits around in helicopters and poses for photos with Congressional groundskeepers. The media were invited to golf Congressional this morning. About 120 people went out, not all of them media. I came up with this great idea...

Tiger Speaks

Tiger Woods just had a press conference at Congressional Country Club. It was packed. The Washington Post's various companies alone provided probably 104 or 105 people. I'll write more on this later, but for now, some quotes from a surprisingly quotable Tiger Woods. He said he had strep throat. Maybe...
