"FartGate -- CBS Denies Tiger Supplied It" **

You forget that in our little golf world, when Tiger might be involved it becomes national news. Case in point: TMZ actually went to CBS for a statement about who was responsible for Buick telecast's final round flatulence (not Tiger!), which the PGA Tour took down from YouTube.

It's humorous that PGAT would go to such lengths to muffle a fart. I could understand removing any odor. I hope TMZ can get to the bottom of Fartgate.

this is what we get in the new world of imMEDIAcy. people (not geoff of course!) have nothing better to twitter, facebook and blog about. next thing you know people will be selling tiger's half-eaten apple on ebay. oops...that was last year.

It's too bad Sean O'Hair wasn't around. He would've had a lighter.

Given the Ulster inflection, his name IS pronounced David Farty.

Big surprise CBS & PGA Tour, The Queen farts too!

Seriously, the look on Tiger and Stevie face, it was undoubtedly Tiger. they are laughing hysterically about the "fart."

Makes me think of that iPhone app, Fartphone.... It's got some real winners, The Dirty Sanchez is good, but the best is The Mosquito. That fart is the Energizer Bunny of Farts. It just keeps on going and going and going.

Did anyone think for a second that maybe it was somebody using their iPhone app?

@ Nick.........

Yes Nick it appears domebody did think of the iphone app.

We now have the definition of "a slow news day in golf."

First Lebron gets dunked on and Nike confiscates the camera from someone who was legally permitted to be there filming and now this! I don't get it. There are too many indians now and too many chiefs.
08.3.2009 | Unregistered CommenterArdmoreAri
"Jeese, I never thought I'd be blogging about a fart. What a high point in my career."

Rest assured, Geoff, the fart has pretty well been codified and canonized in Western literature. Today you're merely standing on the shoulders of giants.
08.3.2009 | Unregistered CommenterMorg
Are we sure the sound wasn't residue from Watson's putt to win the British?
08.3.2009 | Unregistered Commenterjason
Sorry Nick, no way it was Tiger. The mic was too far away to come through that loud and clear, plus Tiger and Stevie both look to their right...probably right at Feherty or one of the camera crew. Otherwise, I'm a big fan of your debating skills.

Smeller's the feller! Tiger moved away first.

As someone that handles a Sennheiser shotgun every day, the only way to solve this mystery is to see a wide shot that determines exactly where the shotgun was pointed.
If aimed in the direction of TW and the Bib-Stripper, it most certainly could pick that up.

It was apparently the boom mic operator who dealt it.
