Woods ' World Golf Hall of Fame career has been fueled in large part by his dominance on the par 5s, his power advantage providing him more scoring chances than his competitors. As Mark O'Meara once said about Woods and par 5s, "It's been his trademark That's kind of what Tiger Woods is all about."

Tiger Woods once made his caddy pull over on the side of the highway so he could practice his swing. His former caddy, Steve Williams, said that no other golfer was as driven and obsessive about improving as Woods . "We were driving down this freeway, and he goes, 'Stevie, stop the car!

"Yeah, you're out in the parking lot. That was my job," Maltbie told reporters at East Lake earlier this week ahead of the Tour Championship. "Jack wouldn't do them. Watson wouldn't do them. Tiger's not going to do it. Tommy, he's not going to do it. Ask him anyway. So I asked him one time, I said, 'Hey, Tiger, I hate to bother you, but they pay me a lot of money. They asked me to do this. They paid me a lot of money. I don't mean to be a pain.' He looked at me and said, 'they pay me a lot more to not do it.' Bingo! I said, 'you're right.'"

Well played by both. Maltie was then asked if Tiger had "a smile on his face?"

"Sure, he did. He's a good guy," Maltbie answered. "I've never had a problem with Tiger, never, ever, ever, ever. But I know when to leave him alone. And it's not that we don't have the occasional word on the golf course, but I'm not seeking it. I'm not approaching him for anything. I mean, if he walks by and makes a comment, great, but those are few and far between, and that's fine."
