The Golf Writers Association of America won’t be at Tiger Wood’s impending press conference. The GWAA had negotiated with Mr. Woods’ camp to get the number of non-wire reporters double from three to six, but with 950 members, that didn’t help them all that much.
“To limit the ability of journalists to attend, listen, see and question Woods goes against the grain of everything we believe,” the group’s president, Vartan Kupelian, told CBS News.
Of course, the boycott shouldn’t much affect the ability of any GWAA members to actually report the event, since Mr. Wood’s isn’t taking questions, and the so-called press conference–or “press conference penitent spoken-word performance,” as David Carr called it–will be broadcast all over the internet anyway.
