Middle East Peace Sounds More Likely Than Tiger/Sergio Truce

Steve DiMeglio with Tiger's one-word answer and an exclusive follow up on whether he has thought to call Sergio and bury the hatchet after last month's Players Championship incident.

"Obviously, the matter has been put behind me. The truth came out," Woods told USA TODAY Sports about the incident with Garcia. "As I was saying the entire time, I told people what I had heard and what had happened."

More importantly, he reiterated his views on the proposed anchoring ban and suggested he'd like to see the a ban sped up for the PGA Tour.

" … And as far as the PGA Tour, I hope they do it as soon as possible to be honest with you. I've always said that. I've always felt that golf you should have to swing the club, control your nerves and swing all 14 clubs, not just 13."

Anyway the USGA can just ban Keegan Bradley? Such an easy character to dislike.

Tiger Woods be disingenuous. Didn't he try out the belly putter but found it didn't suit him?
Funny, I like the people who want the tour to play by a rule that is not a rule. Than after the rule may go into effect, we will have people who dont want to play by that rule.

c&c, you tell us, did he?

"The truth came out" - famous last words.

TW is correct
Wasn't C&C caught in the men's stall with his...ahem...pants down?

No, not really, but isn't it so easy to cast doubt on someone's reputation just by throwing some spaghetti against the wall?

@Lee Watson. Yes, I see how easy it is to dislike Keegan Bradley. Which of the following is so despicable that it makes him so unlikable:

A). Probably the most accomplished American player under 30
B). His great connection with and acknowledgment of the fans, sponsors, other players, social media, ect.
C). His obvious love of the game
D). Clutch play and love of the Ryder Cup
E). When his "spitting" problem was pointed out, immediately corrected it and apologized.
F). That's right, he has a quirky pre-shot routine, and he plays a bit slow. Forget it, None of the above apply, go straight to "ban him', and "unlikable"

Facts are fun! Thanks BrianS!

@BrianS well 1) Keegan curses on course 2) he occasionally throws a club 3) he likes Tiger. Around here that can make for some nasty words being tossed your way. Then again I like Keegan

@elf - I hate Tiger and am far from the most popular poster here.

What's liking Tiger got to do with it?
05.20.2013 | Unregistered CommenterTiger Hater
I have no issue with Keegan. Rather I respect that he knows how to turn a ski and probably isn't scared (or complaining) of playing in cold/wet weather. Fair weather golfers are my pet peeve.

As for his golfing...err...moves. I think he has a great golf swing (with those long arms he gets lots of leverage and has 'easy' power. His long irons are solid, another sign of a solid swing).

But all (or most) of my admiration gets tested to the limit when I watch walk into his shot. Reminds me of Jack Nicholson's character in "As Good as It Gets". OCD or what?

I'm actually OK with his spitting, since he works outdoors and it's better to spit outside in the grass/dirt than indoors, just please be discreet about it. An no throat squids por favor.

It becomes irritating: I have to envy Mr. Woods for his golf game, for his new girlfriend and now for his sensible statements too!
05.21.2013 | Unregistered CommenterMartin
I would never admire Tiger for his taste in women, especially this current one. His ability to play professional golf is quite good, but I've pretty much given up Men's Professional Golf except for The Open Championship and the Euro Tour because I only watch to see an interesting golf course ....
