Tiger: Old, trolled and over par
By Stephanie Wei under British Open

Even the AARP is making jokes at Tiger Woods’ expense. Woods had a rough day at the Old Course, opening with a four-over 76 in benign conditions on Thursday morning, but it just got a little more brutal, thanks to the 50-plus crew over at the AARP.

In Tiger’s pre-tourney press conference Tuesday, he was asked if he’s ever considered hanging up the clubs for good. “Retirement? I don’t have my AARP card yet,” the 14-time major champion cracked.

Well, the elderly fired back with the following tweet shortly after he finished the first round of the Open Championship.

Wow. Shots fired! That’s pretty harsh. At the same time, I’m not going to lie — I laughed out loud. I’m assuming it was meant to be a light-hearted joke, but you know it’s bad when the AARP piles on after a crappy day at the office.

Lesson learned: Respect your elders.
