Here's one more note...Rocco may have cost himself $200K by rinsing two balls in Rae's Creek. That's an expensive drink of water!

This was a boring Masters. Phil is not Mr. Excitement and the course was taken out of play with all the changes. I tuned out early and I imagine the numbers are down from last year. The only thing that could save this lumbering Dinosaur is to invite Michelle next year.

Slow news day,huh? Long hair is sweet; just wish I had enough.

Agree on the commercials---they blew wax.

You want Tiger every year? We have it good enough. He'll be more primed than ever to win the Open at Winged Foot.

Hairy Spanish men kick ass. Jimenez has the Spafro, now Chema's caddie has the chestrug.

You make all your putts, Jen? Always hit the right key on the keyboard?

Why is Ron Mon so bitchy to the sweet Mario ? What did she do wrong ? It is not like she is getting 10 million dollars endorsement like Michelle Wie.

Tiger Apologises After 'Spaz' Gaffe



Apologetic: Tiger Woods has reacted quickly to criticism following comments he made to BBC2

Golfing superstar Tiger Woods has been forced to apologise for saying he putted like "a spaz'' during the final round at the US Masters tournament.

Woods, 29, who failed to retain his title after shooting 70 in the final round at Augusta, said on BBC2: "I putted atrociously today. Once I got on the greens I was a spaz.''

His comment prompted reproach from the Disability Rights Commission (DRC) and charity Scope, and Woods' spokesman Mark Steinberg later said: "Tiger meant nothing derogatory to any person or persons and apologises for any offence caused.''

Scope, formerly The Spastics Society, was lobbied by disabled people and groups to change its name, because the word had become offensive.

The charity's aim is equality for disabled people, and a spokesman said: "Tiger Woods has demonstrated, as George Bernard Shaw said, that 'England and America are two countries divided by a common language'.

"Although in the US the term 'spaz' may not be as offensive as it is in the UK, many disabled people here will have taken exception to likening his poor golf stroke to that of 'a spaz'.''

He said the charity was "confident'' Woods would be devastated to learn something he said could offend his fans - disabled or non-disabled.


The spokesman added: "But 'spaz' - as used in Woods's context - is suggesting that symptoms of spastic cerebral palsy are 'clumsy' or 'inept'.

"All Scope asks is that people - particularly in the public sphere - watch what they say, especially as their remarks are read and heard worldwide. Sporting celebrities have a unique and wide influence, often spanning international communities.''

Jen,

I can't speak for Mon a-doo Ron Ron, but my impression was he was just poking fun.

I actually place some validity on your question #3. Doesn't U. of Iowa cover the visitors locker room with pink paint? - the carpeting, the walls, the urinals etc. The vistors psyche themselves out just by trying to cover it up.

I think Tiger did an Iowa to himself.

I like One-Putt's suggestion. The Masters' committee and Augusta National should consign their qualifications, rules, and traditions to the trash bin of history and invite Michelle Wie to next year's tournament to save this dinosaur called the Masters' from extinction. And I would even go one better. Miss Wie should be automatically seeded into the final two days of the tournament. If she were somehow unable to make the cut, many real golf fans like One-Putt would tune the Masters' out in favor of Arena football. Now, many will probably protest that the Masters' grounds and clubhouse tickets are sold out for about the next five years, and a waiting list and a lottery for tickets is in place for anyone wanting to see a Masters' after that, but so what? That doesn't mean a thing. The committee MUST do a lot more to attract and keep the fickle television viewers like One-Putt if the tournament is to survive. Michelle to Augusta in 2007!

Alex... your suggestion is about as insightful as Martha Burk's suggestion to move the Masters away from Augusta.

JR, That post was meant to be a joke, son. It was a spoof of One-Putt's and other Wie Warriors' calling for Miss Wie to be invited to the Masters' without previously qualifying. Of course, Hootie and the good ole boys will never allow the mongrelizing of THEIR tournament. Martha Burk will be a Playboy centerfold before that happens.

Basically I thought the Masters was a good show but the camera man and director needs to go to school on what golfers really want to see.

I do not want to see golfer A taking a bottle of water out of his golf bag and then golfer A watching golfer B make his putt.
I wanted to see what golfer B was doing, golf as it happens.
It's the camera man and directer who are making me less interested in watching golf.

There may be 5 questions, but there are only 2 results that count. 1) The WIE-ner did not get to participate and 2) Tigger did not win!
