Dan Jenkins’ fake interview with Tiger Woods. The legendary writer, who made a career of poking fun at the high and mighty in sports, famously pointed his poison pen at Tiger in an obviously fake interiew in the current issue of Golf Digest.

Tiger was not amused, and he cried foul.

Even some of Jenkins’ fans think he went too far, that the parody was too mean spirited. Judge for yourself:

Q: Why haven’t you fired Steiny, by the way? You’ve fired everybody else. Three gurus, Butch, Hank and Sean Foley. Two caddies, Fluff and Stevie. Your first agent, Hughes Norton, who made you rich before you’d won anything. Other minions.

A: I’ll probably get around to it.
