I thought a sports competition was about challenging the payer to do his/her best.

Golf only allows one player to work at a time, the balance of their time is their time and how they spend it is up to the player.

If smoking bothers the audience, they can leave to watch another player elsewhere on the course.

Role models are created by the people who need them, the individual role model is doing his job, if you don't see him as your role model, there are other players for you to choose.

The fact that a player of a sport is not your idea of a proper role model does not diminish his skill.

How many other players are popping pills during their break or taking insulin?

B-Tuck, did you get the delineation of the trebidity story along the 17th hole at Whistling Straits? That thing about why the water looks like it does along the shore? I think that it is a caddie staple.

Sorry, Ron, but I think B-Tuck has the Big Mo' on his side. So few people smoke on TV these days, the Cabrera footage looked like something unearthed from a time capsule created in the 50s.

By the way, what does Cabrera do with the butts, toss them on the greens?

I believe that he chews them up and spits out nails. Who is the big mo'? How about the big Po' as in POlitical Correctness? Take away some more individual rights, Goddess.

Steroids are illegal. Cigarettes are not. Let's not lose sight of the big picture.

Just as long as they don't throw the filter on the course, I am okay with it.

1. All of what players on disability?
2. What fans are leaving b/c Daly flips a butt or two? Not many from what I can tell.
3. What the hell happened to free will?

As a former Marine, I fought for individual rights. Last time I checked, this isn't a police state. We have the right to abuse our body in any manner in which we choose. Some drink. Some smoke. Steroids have been deemed illegal by our society, so they are outlawed by sport. If you feel that strongly, get cigarettes outlawed, then we'll talk.

What's next...drinking?

Screw the "business" of golf. That's exactly what is wrong with this damn game. That's why we have a 16 year old femal who shouldn't be on tour competing for exemptions on the PGA tour. The business of golf? Give it a rest. Go play the game, and get your head out of your abacus.

Ronald, everyone knows the Big Mo is Momentum. And you call yourself a sports writer.

It says that even chess is a sport. Is truth, when it comes about golf, maybe you can’t really say that that’s a sport… and it’s quite boring too, but I don’t agree with all the things you said about baseball. Think about all the running in the field, and all the speed that people need in this game!

Will: I actually thought about posting the pictures of Rick Bender and Gruen Von Behrens on the Blog, but decided not to because of how discomforting their pictures are. But maybe you are right, maybe they should be seen so that people can see what can happen with smokeless tobacco

Yes i agree steroids are useful but not harmless focus on what harms you more than anything.
