Is anyone hanging out with Tiger Woods today?

In just over an hour, Tiger Woods will be hosting his first Google+ Hangout. I'm tuning in, for obvious reasons, but I was wondering if anyone else was going to spend an hour or so hanging out with Tiger?
The hangout starts at 4:00pm EST over on Tiger's Google+ page. If successful, I'm sure we'll see more golfers, and athletes in general, hosting "hangouts". If not, Tiger may be forced to return to the more traditional pre-tournament press conferences like the rest of his peers. And we all know how much he loves his pressers...

I'd hang out with Tiger Woods!
I'm not going to pretend like I understand all this new media jive talk. Honestly I kind of miss when internet was just email and some html. Still don't fully know what a "hashtag" is and when that word became common parlance. Screw all of you.
What's a hashtag, never heard of it. And I am not kidding.
@DD- It's the #poundsymbol of the 21st Century!

I know there will be people who slam Tiger for his "contrived" PR stunt. But, I thought it was pretty cool. I don't see Phil Mickelson reaching out to fans on Facebook, Twitter, etc. or hosting a Google+ Hangout.
If you missed it live, you can watch the replay here:
Maltbie's shirt color made him look topless. At least, I thought so and it made me laugh.
Not so fast there Nate, that's cuz Phillyboy is out there in the trenches, shaking sweaty hands, patting fat backs, signing autographs til his hand goes numb. Easy to sit on a couch in front of a computer on a Google Hangout Plus or whatever. While Tiger is fiddling around on Facebook Phil is out there giving em something called face TIME.
how boring. why doesn't he just do a dam press conference like a normal athlete?
i like the idea of embracing the Google+ Hangout, but i don't like Team Tiger filtering the questions that will be asked. i would also like to see him do this on top of his usual pressers.
and shake more hands during tournament week, like Phil.
