At one stage, he was caught on video proclaiming: “Tiger Woods, you suck God dammit.”

“I think people are making way too much of a big deal of this thing,” Woods said of his emotions, after his final round.

“I don’t know how people should think I should be happy by that.

“These are not normally things I do.

“I am not going to be smiling, I am not going to be happy… I am not going to be walking around with a pep in my step.”
