    If anything it's a great reminder that even pros can act like donkeys on the course just like any player at your local muni.

    Yeah, I am waiting for the next explosion out of his mouth. The audio today caught his "God Damn#t" which CBS and the sponsors would love to have on Easter Sunday. Man was he lunging at the ball today. He was more accurate when he kicked his iron on 16 tee.

    But I will say he was scrambling like crazy to get mostly pars. Alot of pros would have shot 80 today with some of tigers tee and iron shots.

    He hit a bad tee shot on 13 the mic caught him referring to himself in 3rd person......hilarious.

    I hate Tiger and wish him nothing but leprosy. But I think you might hate him more than me.

    Maybe not him so much, but the lemmings (including the TV folks) who insist on drinking the Tiger koolaid. I don't get why they choose to dismiss his bad behavior both on and off the course.

    I like Tiger. But even I have to admit that was an embarrassing display today.
    If I were paired up with him, I think I'd talk trash to him constantly. Because at this point in his life, his focus is inconsistent.

    Besides, we need more trash talking in golf.

    lol @ bad behavior off the course. Freddy boom boom was ******* broads all over the place while his first wife was dying of cancer and the press didn't say ****. if running around off the course were against tour policy half the guys out there would be off the tour.

    Re: tiger is great tv

    I dont really think he is a disgrace to the game at all. If anything he is showing that he is a real person trying so hard to compete at the game. He is showing how difficult the game really is.
    Prior to his "scandel" Tiger was could do no wrong. He won everything with ease, seemed almost like a machine. Things have changed for Tiger now, can you imagine how hard it has to be on him mentally? To be so dominant and now to struggle so much? I think it would be tough.
    I have zero problem with him saying god dam*it or kicking a club, sure its a little extreme for a tour pro, but what do you or do when we hit a bad shot? I swear, god dam*it is one of the less offensive things we say on the course. I've kicked or thrown clubs. It can be the most frustrating sport on the planet.
    Tiger is good for the game and is not a disgrace. He shows how difficult the sport is. People will love or hate him (personally I'm not a huge fan), but he makes a game I love interesting to so many people. As Duff has said, he makes for phenomenal television.

    Thank you for making my point. The fact that you find it permissible for your own bad behavior on the course to be acceptable at the profesional level is half the problem with Tigger fans today.

    If the game was so hard at the pro level, they would all be behaving as badly as Tigger.

    I'm with Igothawked. I still love watching Tiger play golf.
