Video: Tiger Woods’ incredibly awkward interview with Maria Bartiromo

CNBC's Maria Bartiromo apparently didn't get the memo that you're supposed to ask generic softball questions to Tiger Woods during "exclusive" sponsor-related interviews.

Speaking to the 14-time major winner on Oct. 19, Bartiromo asked a number of interesting questions during the five-minute interview. And by "interesting" I mean incredibly awkward.

From the opening question regarding Woods' stake in FUSE to asking Woods about Lance Armstong coming back and how he handled endorsements post-hydrant, Bartiromo's interview was all over the map and actually rivaled Woods' initial Google+ hangout.

If CNBC was trying its best to keep Woods away from the network in the future, it should consider the wacky interview a complete success.
