Chris Rock says Tiger Woods needs girlfriend like Lindsey Vonn

Chris Rock is not only one of the best comedians of all-time, but he's also one of the most observant people -- after all, it's his business.

Rock joined host Jerry Seinfeld in the latest episode of the brilliant Web series "Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee," and the topic of Tiger Woods came up in the conversation.

The former "SNL" star said Woods dating Lindsey Vonn should be good for the world No. 1.

At around the 7:45 mark, Rock explains: "Tiger Woods is back. He's got a new girl. And he's a guy that needs a relationship. He's a guy that needs to make that call every night. 'Alright, I'm in. Round was good.'"

Rock then compared Woods to, of all people, Prince.

"I was hanging out with Prince, and he was like, 'Oh, I gotta go make that call.' Prince calling his wife. 'Yeah. OK.' He made the most routine call to his wife you could ever make. ... Prince knew, I gotta make this call."

Maybe Rock is right. Woods was introduced to now-ex-wife Elin Nordegren at the 2001 Open Championship. He then proceeded to win two majors in 2002 before going on a skid of 10 majors without a win before taking four of the next eight and six of the next 16.
