Great article. I cannot agree with you more. And Tigger being so popular is only teaching the younger generation these same manners...too bad! I see it a lot these days. It needs to stop and the PGA should levy fines for such behavior. The fines should be at a higher rate for those higher on the money list, since these are the ones who are watched the most.

I was really troubled with TW's club slamming. I'm sorry but that is anger management behavior.

And it seems to me that if he slowed down his swing just a tad he wouldn't be getting himself into the trouble he found himself in.

You're spot on, Brandon, Tiger Woods will never be as adored as Tom Watson is and always will be on these shores even if the former overtakes Jack's record.

A lesson in temperament from Tom and others, I am still struggling with I rerget to say.

They ought to check that mutant Woods for steroids. Classic "roid rage" in concert.

Wonderful article, agree with all.

The thing most younger folks don't know, with all this talk of Watson's struggle with the putter, is that BEFORE that became an issue he was a brilliant putter. He hammered in putts on the shortish side with a strong pace, not worried about leaving a 5 footer should he miss. And on the slower Open greens (intentionally slower because of the wind) that was particularly effective. He was wild off the tee, though not as bad as Seve Ballesteros, and would make up for it with a very strong short game around the greens and fearless putting.

watching Tiger throw clubs ia all part of the package. Most agree that it is amazing he is so mad about bad shots and never becomes complacent with the Billion in the bankage. Deal with it boy as this is Tiger's world for the next 10 years- Ha Ha

Michael,

You're the one acting like a "boy." I believe Woods is the greatest golfer of all time. However, people of wisdom understand that there are more important things in life than hitting a little dimpled white ball. One of those things is setting a good example for the young.

I also have to correct you about something else. It's isn't Tiger's world — it's OUR world. And we have a duty to future generations, part of which is instilling them with a proper moral compass.

Grow up.

Well said, Brandon. It's about time we called him to task. You would hope he would read this and take it to heart. I wonder what Jim Brown would think.

I really don't care if Tiger Woods slams his club in the ground or not. Divots can ans are replaced all the time. If that is all you can find wrong with Tiger Woods perhaps you should focus on something. There is more pressure on Mr. Woods than any other golfer on history, for various reasons. I like that he shows passion and gets upset with himself. So you like Tom Watson, that's fine but don't try to compare or associate him with Mr. Woods, talentwise, because it just doesn't work. Mr. Watson has had a great career but he is not Tiger Woods; Tiger Woods is not Tom Watson let's not get them confused.

I couldn't agree with you more. TW may be the greatest golfer in the world, but that doesn't excuse him for having "tantrums" because he hit a bad shot. Kid look up to him, if it's ok for him to do it, it's ok for them. Shame on you Tiger.

Great article, Brandon. I am 58 and have been a PGA member for 35 years. I still remember at age 11, my father sending me to the clubhouse in the middle of a round after I threw a club. It was the last time I did that. Having watched Nicklaus, Palmer, Player, Watson and others for many years, I have no memories of them doing what Tiger is getting away with....I don't care how much money he is worth, his tantrums are getting old and it's time he grew up.

Wouldn't happen if Earl Woods were still living!
Tiger Woods will be taken to the wood shed for his
behavior in Scotland, of all places, where golf
behavior is revered as part of the game. See Tom
Watson, and his press inverview following the Open.
Tiger's "people" will call him on this behavior.
Tiger needs to change this behavior, and the
swearing on the golf course.

No shit, Maynard! It is not very easy to confuse the two....you can tell them apart by their actions on the golf course.

I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crises. The great point is to bring them the real facts.

Our dilemma is this: were limited to roughly seven full days of sightseeing/travel (Sat thru Fri) and are having trouble fitting both Big Sur and Redwoods into the agenda without wearing ourselves out from too much car time. The northern redwood groves (and preferably the cool climate ones) are a real draw for us in that we want our kids to experience the same cathedral like feeling that we did several years ago when we visited the Jedidiah Smith Redwoods SP and Lady Bird Johnson Grove near Orick.

Regardless of the August crowds or the winter storms, you are probably safer here than in a big city.

Next time Im in the valley, Ill drop by Gowans and reassess my review. Im all for supporting locals of all stripes (which is why I didnt single-out Gowans by name in my initial review), whether they believe in growing organically or not. But if Gowans fruit still doesnt taste as good as the Apple Farms, Ill stand by my initial assessment.

Hey there I must say I revere your principals. As a Boston Cab driver I meet all kinds of interesting peeps and now I just can`t get enough. As soon as I drop off my Boston Taxi I come right to the bat cave and fire up my idiot box looking for entertaining and informative blogs like this one. The next time you are around zip code 02127 Southie Mass.stop by and see us!

It is difficult to make a man miserable while he feels worthy of himself and claims kindred to the great God who made him.
