Tiger Woods Angry Over Parody Article

Tiger Woods isn't one for playing around off the course.

He lashed out at Golf Digest magazine over a Q and A article by Dan Jenkins titled "My (Fake) Interview With Tiger." Yes, it's a completely made up article.

But that didn't stop Tiger from getting ticked off. Really ticked off.

The parody piece touches on his off-course controversies and his not-so-humble side. Jenkins fake-asked fake Tiger about his list of the five best golfers of all time, and he says they were all him at different points of his career.

Real Tiger didn't like that.

He went as far as writing a real article called "Not True, Not Funny" that starts out, "Did you read Dan Jenkins' interview with me in the latest Golf Digest? I hope not. Because it wasn't me. It was some jerk he created to pretend he was talking to me. That's right, Jenkins faked an interview, which fails as parody, and is really more like a grudge-fueled piece of character assassination."

Except we know it was a fake interview. It says so right in the title.

He went on to call Jenkins' article "below the belt" and claimed the writer resented the him for not being more available to him for interview.

Fortunately his rant might've sparked an idea for Jenkins' next article. The writer tweeted, "My next column for Tiger: defining parody and satire." We look forward to it.
