Tiger's Temper June 16, 2008, 10:35 am

by Irena
Yesterday, Tiger was very proud of himself, obviously. I, however, was not. Throwing his club was childish, rude, and definately not the actions of a fine sportsman. RUINED IT FOR ME.

it's obvious that you are oblivious to the real problem.
the tournament officials better get control of these jerk photographers, both amateur and professional--their actions can cost tiger a touranament, and just tiger, no one else has to deal with all of that--so tiger can do or say whatever he thinks will get him back into his game, including cursing and threatening the jerks--if the tournament officials were doing their jobs, he wouldn't have to do this. and you are picking on tiger? shame on you and your narrow view of the circumstances.

frank, jerk photographers are not "the real problem." They are A problem, granted. But they are a different problem, not at all what the writer was discussing.

Tiger and class April 4, 2008, 10:22 am

by Bruce Thom
Tiger has no class (for that matter neither does the sour faced foul mouthed millionaire who carries for him. Nicklaus, Palmer, Watson - they epitomized class.

It is my opinion that there have been similar comments made during their careers by all of the famous golfers you can name. They DID NOT have microphones so able to pick up what they said, nor did they have the level of media following them at any time. You who do realize the difference and are so ready to judge Tiger are rediculously naive. Go Tiger, you are the best thing that has EVER happened to golf. Thank you for being the good sportsman that you are. May God protect you from these judgemental wannabes.

tiger and civility April 3, 2008, 4:28 pm

Yes, the prize money does change things. When your every stroke has such high stakes -- millions of dollars or a place in golf history -- then you get reactions such as Tiger's.
The pressure-cooker golf Tiger and his PGA Tour buddies play is much different in intensity from the game we play with our families and friends -- just as Major League baseball is a different annimal from the ball we play on playgrounds.
We want our athletes to show passion and have a huge desire to win, then we carp on them when they show too much emotion.
I'd rather hear Tiger curse when he's fighting hard to win a close tournament than see a Top 20 pro jovially stroll the fairways smiling because he's going to cash in another 10th-place paycheck.

Keep those photo seekers away from the players. Tiger goes thru this all the time and nothing seems to be done about the photographers. I cursed sometimes in the front of my kids and they grew up to be great people. Keep those microphones away from the players they are human beings just like you and I.

Your Readers Have Spoken... April 2, 2008, 12:03 pm

by Ivory Rubin
Are you listening?? Will you pass it on to your shortsighted, narrow-minded colleagues? Or will you continue to look at Tiger's flaw as a means to continue being a "persona arsonist"? Using whatever means necessary to try to bring Tiger down to the level you, and others like you, want him to be? I guess in your mind he can't be as good as he seems...and you're out to prove it. The arrogance of you fanning the flames of divisiveness is what irritates me the most. If what I have said here isn't true, then let's see how much ink you'll contribute to reporting on Tiger's humanitarian accomplishments.

Target Tiger April 2, 2008, 9:15 am

by OWatson
Recall when a spectator yelled out as Vijay took his shot " in the water ..."? Even the commentators said spectators should be escorted out for this type of behavior. Spectators use profanity with children present in their midst. Who checks that? Do they care? With all the beer drinking I think kids hear more from the spectators than they do the players. Ever hear the racial slurs and swearing thrown at Tiger by spectators as he plays? The players have changed and so have the spectators! Tiger is not the only player on tour who slips now and then with the language. There needs to be respect by the photographers, spectators and players. And, yes it is done so much to him could it be deliberate attempts to sabotage his game? Look at the bigger picture.

Comments about Tiger Woods April 2, 2008, 8:09 am

by John P. Phillips Jr
I am white, 65 and love golf. I watch it, I play and I live on a golf course. That said, if I every read another shortsited comment about any golfer in Worldgolf.com like this last one on Tiger Woods I will stop the newsletter. Your as dumb as Johnny Miller. Who is another f__king know it all. There is never a right time for bad or poor word usage. But, it would appear that the photograper think they can do what they want when they want, that is wrong. What if the photographer did it as an attempt to cause Tiger to loose his focus. Then would you be so quick to write what you did? We don't need anymore articles that are not researched and thought out before being put to ink. GROW UP!! If you don't like the bad choice of words then start a campaign to get the movies and TV movies banned that are R and X rated removed from all media.
