Tiger Woods April 1, 2008, 9:46 am

Tiger Woods may break all records but he will never be the best golfer on tour - never.
The best golfer is one who loves the game and plays well. So far, Tiger is in. The best golfer understands that golf is a gentleman's game where tradition and proper decorum is honored and respected. The best golfer is a humble person who recognizes talent in others and puts other ahead of himself. In this department Tiger is out.
Tiger Woods is typical of a younger generation which is self centered and focused on themselves. Having a charitable foundation doesn't repair the damage done on the course by a foul mouth in the eyes of children and true golf lovers world wide.
So, can we expect more of the same - you bet!
Mechanically, Tiger is probably the best golfer in the world. Too bad it is not a complete package because the could then be the greatest golfer in the world.
Perhaps Tiger needs to go and take a lesson from the likes of Jack Nicholas, Arnold Palmer, Raymond Floyd, Lee Trevino, Gary Player, Bernard Langer, Lee Jansen, Davis Love III and so many others.

Tiger's Outburst April 1, 2008, 9:45 am

by J. Steele
Is Mr. Tucker serious when he writes, "unfiltered profanities of a deranged street bum" and "the grand game". It is a game, a sport. I do not excuse Tiger's or any other public figure's outburst of profanity, but let's get serious here. Has Tucker played a round of golf at the CC lately? Let's put this in its proper perspective. The real irreverent issues of life are in Iraq,Darfur, etc.

Tiger's outbursts April 1, 2008, 9:38 am

by Doug Podolak
The game of golf continues to frustrate with many arcane and petty rules, interruptions and hindrances. Another subject that is root to the difficulties it is going through. None of these are the issue with Tiger's behavior. I am a major fan of Tiger's and believe he long ago demonstrated that he is not just now but in history the greatest. However, Tiger's behavior which is usually exemplary is too often inconsistent with that profile. No one doubts that he is consistently under public pressures that few encounter but this does not excuse his outbursts. Being ultra-competitive is one thing, boorish behavior is another. I wonder whether Earl would have or Kutilda approves of this behavior and better yet would he act like that in front of Sam?

Tiger and profanity April 1, 2008, 9:32 am

by Rick Huff
Keep the ef-fing cameras out of his face and respect that he is doing his job on the golf course. How ef-fing rude and just who do you think you are that you can't abide by a simple curtesy of being quite and not HAVING cameras on the course. Once ef-fing word won't diminish the good that Tiger's done for the association and children. Give him some ef-fing slack!

Profanity April 1, 2008, 9:16 am

Why blame Tiger? You hear the same language every day from the majority of americans. You can't watch a movie without listening to the same profanity. The problem is deep in the current american culture and only a concerted effort from parents can change it. I'm a member of an England golf club and seldom hear such profanity and see lots of raised eyebrows when you do.
A concerned american!

Tiger Wood-intergrity April 1, 2008, 9:10 am

Don't put Golf to much on a pedestal.
Golf has the most stupidest rules of any sport on earth.Golf is run by high collar snob freaks.So no wonder they would be offended by some of Wood's demeanor.Having said that I think that Tiger is affected by some product tied to his training that would affect his temper.When they drop their clubs and fist-fight on greens ,I would then
start being offended.

Tiger's bad tempers / foul language April 1, 2008, 9:09 am

by Ger Ennis
I think it sad that Tiger is letting himself and his legion of fans down. Jack, Arnie, Gary etc were always gentlemen on and off the course and they still are today.
Tiger, you are the best golfer around today but do not leave a bad legacy behind you. I grew up in the area of the Big 3 in the 60's and they were the best role models ever for the game of golf.
I am sad to see the loutish behaviour of fans at pga events - the comments to Vijay recently were disgraceful. Tiger is King and he should be following in the footsteps of Jack.

Tiger and the Legends April 1, 2008, 9:08 am

They say that Arnie and Jack popularized the game, but Tiger is bringing it to the masses. And that is for better or worse. This is more a true reflection of society than the counrty club image golf had. We can all use golf to teach our children about sportsmanship and fair play. But now it will be interspersed with the odd profanity. The thing that bugs me about Tiger is that he is so quick to dismiss his own responsibility for losing and blame everyone/thing else. If I played with cameras going off in my backswing, I'd practise with them going off as well.
