Tiger Woods talking about beating on his shaft as funny as expected (video)

Tiger Woods had a pretty solid opening round at The Open Championship at Royal Lytham & St. Annes on Thursday, walking off the links course with a 3-under 67, three strokes behind clubhouse leader Adam Scott.

Woods described the opening of his day as “a sweet start,” but had some troubles on the back 9 down the stretch, including a troublesome lie in a sand-filled divot after a nice tee shot into the fairway on the par-4 10th.

In the video above, Tiger describes his approach to the tricky shot, and how he goes about explaining it is nothing short of sophomoric, innuendo-charged brilliance:

 “I was trying to lean the shaft, get as open as I possibly could at impact and just beat on it you know. That’s what I did. I beat on it pretty good didn’t I?”

Oh man. That’s gold. Now, if there’s one quote today that will get you giggling like a 6th grade boy, that has to be the one. And I love how Tiger laughs afterward, likely unaware of how his commentary could be interpreted in a most perverted fashion. It was awkward and hilarious all at the same time. Awesome.
