Agreed. Just when this unfortunate
incident was fading out, we get this shameless grab
for $.

WKW,

An explanation, please.

Is the third last paragraph of your blog your opinion or your take on the opinion of GolfWeek's editorial.

Please elucidate. Thank you.

Perhaps they should have a picture of Tilghman photoshopped inside the noose, chair with a chair toppled on the ground beneath her swinging body. The comment may well turn out to be career suicide.

The whole reaction to Tilghman is overblown.
She's a Brit and the Brits don't share American's
touchy and sometime outlandish political correctness
Golf is not worse than any other subculture that looks after it's own, there are so many examples of American sub culture picking on golf as being some racist bastion is disingenuous and intentionally inflammatory.
Al Sharpton's whole career is based on exploiting racial
friction to prop up his standing in the African American
community. The fact he got involved in this should make people in golf wary of his racial motives, not Tilghmanans
If Tilghman had said "shot Tiger in a back alley" would that have been politically correct? If Tiger were white, would the "lynch" crack have been politically acceptable? THe whole poltical spin put on Tilghman's crack and Al Sarpton's getting involved in this tempest in a teapot is absurd, and Tiger Woods reaction shows he's above racist politics in America.

"Don't worry, Wolfrum, Golfweek editor and VP Dave Seanor's head has been served up on the proverbial platter. And all is well with American society again."

Wow! Please share with the rest of us, how you have managed to live in a world where thoughtless and idiotic actions don’t have consequences – because in the real world (as Seanor has just found out)….they do.

Jerry Rubin,

Are you certain that Kelly is British?

I could swear that she once said that she was from South Carolina, perhaps Myrtle Beach.

Kelly Tilghman, born in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina is a broadcaster for The Golf Channel, and the PGA Tour's first female lead golf announcer. Tilghman, who played college golf at Duke University, works as the main play-by-play announcer during The Golf Channel's PGA Tour telecasts. She became an anchor in 2007 when the PGA Tour signed a 15-year deal in which Golf Channel broadcasts the first three events of the year, weekday coverage of all tour events, and full coverage of the Fall Series and opposite-field events.

Tilghman is not British.

The fact that Dave Seanor is no longer the Editor is an insult to all of us. Does anyone think he acted alone. Everyone know putting out a weekly magazine is a collaborative effort. I would like to see someone do a story on how many people in the staff meeting objected to the cover. The decision by Golfweek to use that cover is far worse in my opinion than what Kelly T said. It was not meant to be mean or even racist. Golfweek cover is a premeditated thing to sell magazines no matter who they offend. The apology from the "new" editor is laughable.

I'd like to lynch Al Sharpton, that rat. I now see my career in dark colors.

If it makes everyone feel better, we can pretend Kelly is British - but we're not having Dave Seanor, thank you.

Joe R - I believe "The Editor's decision is final" still stands.

I am so sick of worrying about the African-American opinion. White cracker, white man, whitey, etc. is
ok however. What a pathetic double standard. It's about time we revisit the American Constitution and the rights
of Americans. The liberals in this country need to
shut up. I am tired of everyone trying to be politically correct. Enough is enough.

Right on, Joe. It's as if the gold standard for behavior should reflect only black sensitivities. Last I heard, white people are human, too.

Golf is really screwed up.
Kelly Tighlman should have been fired.
Dave Seanor should be praised for having the guts to keep alive a story that golf is trying desperately to sweep under the rug.

The Judge and Joe are 100% correct, Al Sharpton lives on the stupid in society that crave to call everything that doesn't suit them as racial. No one reading the blogs or Golfweek
lived during the times when lynching may have occurred. . So it's time to quit being so petty about everything thats said or done. You want racism to go away, sorry some people just don't like other people for more reasons than skin
color, that just happens to be one difference. When
everyone is treated equal, and we don't cater to one geoup or the other ( read that as the Al's and Jesse's),
maybe tensions will ease.
