Serena Tweets Her Tiger Photo, Media Violated!

Shouldn't the PGA Tour be cracking down on Serena Williams for a blatant violation of spectator policy by knowlingly Tweeting a photo she took of Tiger Woods at the Bear Trap Classic even after marshals told her to put her camera down?

Not to mention the real story here, the complete and utter violation of the media rights!

Jay Busbee with the horrifying Tweets to her, gulp, 3.5 million followers.

Kyle Porter with the requisite GIF (thanks reader Andrew).

Ty?  Can we get on this ASAP? Ban this unruly spectator now for promoting your product and undercutting the media's ability to tweet its own uninspired images to its thousands of followers!

The video proof of the sinister act from PGATour.com, which is profiting from this by including the beloved 5-Hour Energy ad, back by unpopular demand.

How lawless, devout of any morality, and consideration for the human soul by Serena. What a hideous crime, indeed.

At least I only got the Bubba/Hunter PING putting app commercial. No training aid has ever been accused of contributing to the death of any user. (Unlike certain Jim Furyk-endorsed elixers.)

Tiger would never have noticed her. She's not a blonde.

While I understand the joke and the whole tweeting bs, didn't she actually do something wrong? Maybe I am ignorant but I thought photos were prohibited at Tour events? This is a perfect example of a generation that does not believe in rules or regulations. And even if they do believe in them they are for all others, not themselves. All one has to do is go to a public outing of some sort, baseball game-Disney-Resort Pool, to see blatant examples of what I am talking about. I was recently at a Broadway musical when an announcement was made right before the lights went down saying NO PICTURES whats so ever. It was really clear to everyone....Lights go down, flashes start. WTF. I don't get it. It's as if the nice lady never made the pre-show announcement. I know I sound like an old grumpy man but what happened to following rules? Obviously to Serena they don't apply.

Enigma, that is so original and thought provoking. You obviously are pissed off because you are one of these "rules are for everyone else" whipper snappers. Do you also park in front of the super market and use the handicap spots because you're just going in for a quick pick up? And you're the only one that is able to text and drive as well, everyone else should be arrested.

"Twenty Pecenters" scorecard, desert report:

36 players today..zero anchorers...3 day total: zero for 65. On a side note, I talked to the cart guy...he works weekends at this busy So. Arizona public course..300 plus rounds on the weekends...I asked how many players he sees using an anchored putter...he says "very few...maybe one out of 200...no, make that one out of 300"

Ok...now back to bashing Serena

PGA tour doesn't need fans or attendance, nor a fake drug policy
Bobby D. Singapore count for belly putters that I have seen - 1
