Niece’s question brings out lighter side of Tiger

NBC on Yahoo! Sports

The man has made an entire career on his steely reserve and unflinching demeanor, but during Tuesday's press conference, Tiger Woods reacted to a question more lightheartedly than we've seen in a long time.

Unbeknownst to the 14-time major champion, his 22-year-old niece was among the reporters at the conference. Amidst all the questions about Sergio Garcia and Jack Nicklaus's majors record, Cheyenne Woods asked her uncle what he does to relax during the grueling U.S. Open. Tiger's response is as authentic and animated as we've seen from him. The overly private Woods even hints at some of the family's dinner plans for the week.
