Totally agree rs.....I too saw Stensen re-do the landscape! He just didn't slam it once but he kept beating and beating the ground. I am from the US and you are right.....every sport has it's frustration. I would even go so far as to say that GOLF is more frustrating than any other. I play myself and usually play in the 80's. I am a natural athlete and always get frustrated with golf......I just don't happen to be plastered on TV everyweek. Even sadder is that 90% of all golfers do exactly what TW did that caused his downfall, for now. That is nothing new and I would say your everyday man has a few trysts in his life.
So, my conclusion on this a witch hunt, after the greatest golfer ever. The fact that this has gone on for 2+ years supports that. The almighty Tom Watson was an alcoholic and had an affair with another pros wife causing a divorce. She happened to be married to the other Watson at the time so she didn't have to change her name. Lucas Glover who 2 years ago won at Bethpage Black hasn't been around for awhile - why - his wife happened to walk in on him while in the act with another woman but according to TGC, "it was nice to see him back after his personal problem."
Except for the beauty of Augusta and Tiger playing, I wouldn't give it the time of day....I'd rather be out playing myself. Bottom line, your right, frustration is part of every sport and frustration from these commentators is just as bad. Sad how they choose who they want to try and bury.....this is a man's occupation and I doubt without Tiger, TGC would have ever become what it is today!
I think discpline should be meted out fairly as you do. When I read that piece that said suspension was an option, the example cited said the last time it was used was for six months. I don't even remember where I read this.
It is out of our hands, but we can let our feelings be known.
Bet you saw that double eagle on the second by Louis. If not Tiger, I can live with Louis being the new champion.
You don't get respect by DEMANDING IT......you get respect by EARNING IT.......
TIGER has been like that since he was a kid. Tida has tried to correct him.
She has even punished him severely to no avail.
I think TIGER should appologize 'lightly' when he displeases the 'perfect people'.
And just go on being TIGER!
IT IS WHAT IT IS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
