PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem won't openly discuss his differences with Tiger Woods.
``I don't want to talk to a player about an issue through the press,'' Finchem said Friday. ``I never did, and I'm not about to do it now.''
Woods has described his relationship with Finchem as barely a dialogue except when the commissioner wants him to play in a certain tournament. Most of Woods' complaints are about how he perceives the tour to be taking financial advantage of him -- through implied endorsements or jacking up the media rights for his unofficial events.
Any meeting will not take place this week, although Woods' agent met has briefly with PGA Tour officials.
``These are issues, apparently, that we need to sit down and talk about,'' Finchem said. ``I'll sit down and talk to him after the season, and I look forward to speaking to him.''
Finchem was at Valderrama Golf Club, site of the American Express Championship, to announce a $250,000 donation to a local First Tee youth golf program.
