Lindsey Vonn, Tiger's girlfriend, visited Katie Couric and was asked, simply, what is Tiger like? Vonn answered with plenty of compliments, saying he is "funny, laid-back, a great guy, always making jokes, very competitive ... if there is one thing I can say, it's he's funny, he's goofy, like dorky-goofy."
Vonn followed that up by saying, "He's probably not going to be that excited that I just said that," which is true if you look back at the history of Tiger. That said, I think anyone that has watched golf closely this year has seen a more laid-back Woods, and considering he didn't lose it over Vonn putting a live squirrel on his shoulder during the Presidents Cup, his new approach to all things could be attributed to Vonn.

Also, Couric probably shouldn't be as shocked by the "dorky-goofy" label that Tiger landed considering his college teammates used to refer to him as "Urkel" during his time at Stanford.
