David Toms has finger on pulse of the gallery
I’m bummed to admit I didn’t actually see live coverage of David Toms flipping off a member of the gallery Sunday at the Memorial Tournament in Dublin, Ohio. I’m not losing any sleep over his salute, but I do think it was pretty lame of him to then basically deny it. “What kind of question is that?” Toms responded to a reporter who asked about the incident. “Do I look like someone who’d flip someone off in the crowd? I mean, I can’t believe I’m even talking to you.” Dave, it’s on camera!
For what it’s worth, though, in the wake of his win in the 2001 PGA Championship, folks behind the scenes at the PGA of America raved about how down-to-earth Toms is.

Greg Norman would have gone into the gallery to 'discuss' the advantages of keeping one's inebriated mouth shut, and we can safely surmise that Steve Williams response to something untoward directed at Tiger might well have brought four more fingers to the party.
Was Toms wrong? Yeah. Fine him? Yes.
Get over it.
And you're right, Toms is a class act.
kids asked him to sign an autograph he snatched a hat out of one of their
hands, didn't stop walking, never looked at the kid, signed it (while he was
walking away) and threw it behind him (over his head) not even caring if the
right person got their hat back. David Toms is the biggest jerk on the tour
and his attitude needs to be addressed by PGA officials. They are aware of
his problem and now they have evidence on tape. Now all they have to do is
give him the treatment that he deserves.
