Boyce Watkins: Fellow Golfer Calls Tiger Woods “Selfish”

by Dr. Boyce Watkins 

Tiger Woods is planning to have the press conference of the year tomorrow, during which he will talk about his past, present and future. He will be in the TPC Sawgrass clubhouse in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. He is not going to answer questions and the world will be watching.

Police Suspended After Beating Teenager
