Strange says Woods should be more open, forgets what happened last time

Two-time U.S. Open winner Curtis Strange told Reuters that Tiger Woods is missing an opportunity to connect with fans by sharing more of himself with them.

"I think he is missing a wonderful opportunity to show his personality and his inner feelings," Strange said, according to Reuters. "He doesn't tell us anything (meaningful), he never says anything to us.

"The people don't want everything but I think the general public and the press just want something. I don't understand and don't know why he wants to be so distant from the world."

What about the Google Hangouts? The hostage video? He tweets sometimes.

Tiger's been better with the media, particularly showing interest in questions that don't involve any of the following topics: Jack Nicklaus, major championships and Sam Snead.

Then again, does the world really want Tiger to open up more? During The Unpleasantness, we learned about the all-star lineup of side women he engaged with when he was married. We got a glimpse into how he shares popsicles through Hank Haney's tell-all book. We have seen him hurl clubs into galleries when fuming on the course.

Maybe keeping a tighter lid on things in the first place would have been better, no?
