Tiger and Stevie Shake It Off
By Stephanie Wei under Presidents Cup

The most-anticipated first-tee handshake in Presidents Cup history

As the sixth and final match of the day, Tiger Woods-Steve Stricker vs. Adam Scott-K.J. Choi, was about to commence,  Tiger made the customary rounds, shaking hands with his competitors, their caddies, scorers, marshals, etc. — of course, that included Scott’s caddie and Tiger’s former caddie Steve Williams.

In case you missed it, no punches were thrown. Geoff Shackelford compiled a play-by-play slideshow of The Handshake, which can be seen here.

Tiger looked less happy when he shook Stevie’s hand after losing 7&6 to Scott and Choi. Understandably so — he and Stricker had just gotten a butt-whupping. I wonder what Stevie and Adam said after the round in private (or perhaps even during). Oh, to be a fly on the wall…

No words needed
