Tiger Woods struggled throughout his final round on Sunday, finishing the Dubai Desert Classic with four bogeys on the day, including a double bogey on the 18th. But worse than that? Here is video of him SPITTING on the putting green:
Yes, worse than his play was his grave, callous disregard for all that is decent and held dear in the game of golf. So, in the name of Jim Nantz and guardians of chastity the world over, I heartily co-sign the message from the announcer in the video above. As he says:
"You look at his work ethics and he is a credit to the game and an inspiration to all of those who are trying to become professional golfers. But there are some parts of him that are just arrogant and petulant. Somebody now has to come behind him and maybe putt over his spit. It does not get much lower than that."
...What? You think this is no big deal? Just an athlete getting a little frustrated during a tough day? ... Then you're probably the type of classless urchin that would answer your cell phone at the country club, or consider wearing jeans to the dining room. Thankfully, the European Tour has higher standards, and has announced he'll be fined for this heinous act. Justice must be served. NO SPITTING ON THE GOLF COURSE.
(Of course, maybe he was just trying to fit in with the locals out there in Dubai.)
