STEVE INSKEEP, host:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.

Tiger Woods had to apply a serious backspin to one of his public statements. Woods was preparing for golf's U.S. Open and then somebody asked if he was watching hockey's Stanley Cup series. Woods said he doesn't think anybody really watches hockey anymore. That horrified enough hockey fans that Woods issued a clarification. He loves hockey. He just doesn't like watching it on TV, which is more or less what non-golfers like to say about golf.

It's MORNING EDITION.
