In a string of tweets on Thursday, Graeme McDowell sought to clarify statements he made about Tiger Woods seeming far less invicible on the PGA Tour these days.
McDowell was asked repeatedly about the state of Woods' game at the Arnold Palmer Invitational last week. The golfer from Northern Ireland seemed to say that numerous players are no longer intimidated by Woods.
The comments were seen as being highly critical. McDowell responded with the following tweets Thursday morning:
...Many of my quotes have been taken out of context and spun quite negatively. It's hard for me to comment on Tiger in the early 2000s....— Graeme McDowell (@Graeme_McDowell) March 27, 2014
...He seems more beatable nowadays simply because the players around him are better and have more belief thanks to Tiger moving the needle.— Graeme McDowell (@Graeme_McDowell) March 27, 2014
...I really shouldn't get caught up in speculation and opinion especially when talking about TW. You set yourself up for failure. #nocomment— Graeme McDowell (@Graeme_McDowell) March 27, 2014
Woods had to withdraw from Palmer's tournament as he continues to struggle with back spasms. It remains unclear if he will be able to play in the upcoming Masters.
