I love Tiger Woods too, but his apologists are amazing in their ridiculous PGA Championship bailout excuses
It’s hardly surprising that Rebel Blogger is defending someone’s right to be an irresponsible spoiled punk. But the reputable golf voices jumping right in line with the Rebel’s blatant Tiger Woods’ pandering is comical.
I know Jim Nantz wants Tiger to be his buddy, but to call the tournament after Tiger Woods’ inexplicable PGA Championship bailout and not call Tiger on it is inexcusable. And no, Nantz, saying it wasn’t smart once the whole weekend does not qualify as biting commentary.
Tiger Woods turned on everything he supposedly believes in by flying away with the PGA Championship still in doubt. He’s still going to go down as the greatest golfer of all time. I still believe as I’ve long said, he’ll roar past Jack Nicklaus to the tune of 22 major wins.
But that doesn’t change the fact he screwed up big time with that senseless, arrogant bailout. It’s all right to say it.
Maybe, if someone in his apparently increasingly bowing entourage ever did, Tiger Woods would be better off.
As for the Rebel, the guy’s a dimwit from Santee who loves to self hate on his hometown from the safety of a 1940’s hat. I’m sure Tiger’s resting easier knowing this guy has endorsed his fly away. Then again, Steve Williams is in Tiger’s entourage.
The Rebel might fit right in.

What the hell does being black have to do with your argument?
Stick in "white" or "asian" and you realize how ridiculous you sound.
This if anything will be an obscure footnote along with the GQ magazine joke on an article about how Tiger Woods was the best player ever 20 years from now.
Write something fresh and more antagonistic than this, so get back to the Michelle Wie subject!!!
"These Guys are Good!!!"
Don't you think you are being a bit unfair? Tiger is not the first and won't be the last golfer to celebrate after sinking a putt or emote in some way after failing to sink a putt. Tom Kite, Jack, seve and all the greats have used physical gestures to show emotion on the course. What about Garcia's scissor kick down the fairway? What about Hal Sutton who shook his fist in Tiger's face after winning the Players Championship? You obviously have a problem with Tiger but please try to be objective wont you?
It seems to me we all need to separate Tiger's golf game and showmanship from the decisions he makes that don't involve hitting a golf shot. Some player make a great contribution to the game...Jones, Hogan, Player, Palmer, Nicklaus. I wonder if Tiger will cross that divide some day...or just continue to make money?
