Tiger Woods: If you get intimidated by me that's your own f------ issue
14-time major winner Tiger Woods has issued a warning to his fellow pros ahead of this week's Open Championship.
Woods was conducting a master class to media and fans at his recent "TigerJam "charity event in Las Vegas where he was filmed giving a speech to those in attendance about control.
"I can't control you," said Woods. "The only thing I can control is I. Now, if I do this more efficiently than you, if you get intimidated, that's your own f------ issue."
Woods will pair off in his first Open for three years with Russell Knox and Hideki Matsuyama at 3.21pm.
"If you get intimidated, that's your own f***ing issue"

Woods has said that it has been amazing to see how Carnoustie, the course of this year's open, hasn't changed during his career and added that he has missed playing and competing at the oldest major championship in golf.
“Coming here to Carnoustie, it is special,’’ said Woods. “This is my fourth time playing it as a tournament (he played it once as an amateur). From my first time coming here as an amateur to being back now, it’s just amazing how this course doesn’t change.
"It is right in front of you, it is hard; it’s probably the most difficult one we play in the whole rotation.
“It has been a while and I’ve missed it. This is the oldest tournament we have in our sport. I have my name on the trophy a few times so that’s pretty cool. To come out here and play in the Open Championship is always good.’’
