Golf reporters refuse to accept Tiger Woods'' million-dollar challenge

Golf reporters refuse to accept Tiger Woods'' million-dollar challengeLondon, May 25 : Reporters of golf have refused to accept Tiger Woods challenge to donate a million dollars to his Tiger Woods Foundation if they don't ask him about his injured leg.

The Woods challenge, which was relayed through the social network site Twitter about 45 minutes before a scheduled meeting with reporters, lasted all of 65 seconds.

According to The Telegraph, it was long enough for Woods to make an opening statement and get a microphone to his first questioner.

Woods has been on crutches and in a walking boot since his early exit from The Players Championship 12 days earlier.

He won''t hit golf balls until strength rehab on his left leg, probably next week.

And yes, the U. S. Open remains very much in his sights.

The US Open tees off in three weeks at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Maryland.

He classified himself as "doubtful'''' for next week''s Memorial Tournament, though his timetable gives little indication he''ll make the trip. (ANI)
