Pete Rose On Wimpy Golfers
Sitting in his box stand on Las Vegas Boulevard, signing autographs for $50 a pop to curious passing tourists on The Strip, Pete Rose found time to rip on the PGA Tour’s library quiet-please attitude. Baseball’s all-time Hit King claims to have been a 10-handicap himself at one point, but that doesn’t mean he feels for the trials and tribulations of Tiger Woods.
At least, not when it involves the need for silence.
“I’ve played baseball with whiskey bottles being thrown at my head,'’ Rose said. “At Shea Stadium, in New York. I have no sympathy for these golfers who can’t be bothered by a guy talking in the crowd. That’s all history…that’s what that shit is.”
Rose was only getting warmed up on the subject of golf, steroids and the modern athlete. For more on TravelGolf’s three hours in the box with Pete Rose, stay tuned to TravelGolf.com this week.

I've been a supporter of yours forever, but this time you can "BITE ME!". The game of golf demands an entirely different atmosphere that baseball, or football, or any other sport for that matter, and I am both surprised and disappointed that you do not recognise and respect that. By your standards, you should be able to withstand the impact of a 130 mph hockey puck in your balls, or an uppercut to the jaw from Mike Tyson and still maintain the stamina to put one out of the park.
Sure big guy. I'd like to see it!
