Lots of Rock Heads let loose with some great comments last time we talked about Tiger and his temper. Some highlights:
Faxon40: Shame on you Tiger. There is never an excuse for bad behavior. Would Tigers dad endorse these actions? I dont think so. Many young people look up to Tiger as a role model. Do you want our young people growing up thinking this behavior is acceptable?
wayne: Competitive is no excuse for the way he acts. Not a role model. Kick him and his buddys like him OUT.
Terry C: I think he has earned a right to throw clubs, swear, and get pi__ed off when he hits a bad shot. There is a little more riding on his play that your Saturday foursome. I would like all these whiners that criticize his actions to tell their kids ,students, team, etc that when they put as much time,practice, play & history into the game as he has they can complain about it.
Justin: Give me a break guys. I doubt any of you havent cursed on the course (whether it be profane or not dang vs. damn). The highlight reels every week show Tigers great shots with him cheering and fist pumping, and to do that you have to be animated. You cant have one without the other.
At the end of the day I think you’re right Justin. There’s nothing better than watching Tiger (and the entire gallery) react to yet another amazing shot, and it might just be worth a few F-bombs getting dropped along the way. But until he’s buyin’ his Nikes from Rock Bottom, I gotta say he shouldn’t be throwing his clubs!
So what does Mr. Woods himself have to say about this?
“It is what it is. Unfortunately I do make mistakes and I hit bad shots and I say bad things at times. I don’t mean to, it just comes out. It’s not something I try and do. It just happens. Have I been trying to get better at that? Yeah, my entire life, but it happens from time to time and I’m not the only person that does it.”
