What do you all think about the Tiger drop? Legal or not?
I missed it. Is there a clip I can view?
Teein' Off on Links
Don't have a link handy but lots of discussion on the golf channel. Did he drop as near as possible to his original spot on 15 is in question.
ESPN saying he got a 2 shot penalty
Goal in life is to make the Huskers Illustrated Hall Of Fame
Didn't he do something like this last year and was penalized as well?? Something about not asking for a ruling, just deciding on his own. You would think he'd learn.
Oh, wait I forgot, Tiger does think he's above the law.
Great golfer, but I really don't have much respect for him after that. He's always thrown clubs or smacked them into the ground on a bad shot. Just a bad sportsman. I refuse to play golf with anyone that acts like that. But if it's for money..... and they act like that, it's okay, because I know I have them beat.
I hope he can get his life together someday.
Hate Tiger much?
He didn't say anything particularly inaccurate. For some his attitude is a tremendous turnoff.
I don't really care about that, I just like rooting against him. That being said I think the penalty is a bit ridiculous.

Not sure but I think if they dig a little deeper in the rules it also says within two club lengths of original ball position so my guess is there will be no penalty. If there is a penalty he is dq'd for signing inaccurate scorecard.
I'm with you I cant stand Tiger either
I'd love for people to break down why they hate tiger.
Cuz he had an affair? Ok, that means you hate over half of out nation.
Cuz he is intensely private in his relationship with the media? I would be too if poperazzi was in constant pursuit of my daily actions.
Hate his dominance...? Are you are a fan of mediocrity?
Tiger haters, please explain yourself
Why does anyone have to like him?
If these are the reasons why you root against Tiger Woods, then you must also dislike Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, and Kobe Bryant. Heck, there isn't a guy in the NBA that you can root for.
I don't feel particularly compelled to root for Tiger Woods. And I never rooted for Michael Jordan. I hated the Chicago Bulls (sorry Beardown). They ruined my life in 1996 (Sonics fan).
I recognize the greatness. I don't have to root for it.
Feel exactly the same.
I am a avid golfer and believe on the rules of golf. I am with nick Faldo and brandel chamblee tiger should have withdrawn. But didn't expect tiger to do that. He gained an advantage by his not knowing the rule and he signed a score card with the wrong score. Open and shut DQ but CBS and the masters couldn't afford to DQ him and in my opinion golf is worse for it. What is the masters going to do now award a green jacket to the family of Roberto De Vincenzo for when he signed an in correct scorecard?
The reason I brought it up is that it seems to be trendy to root against tiger and most people that I've come across have poor reasons. They simoly say they hate tiger an want to see him fail. If he's just not your guy, that's fine. I just like poke at people that simply watch golf for the singular reason of rooting against him.
I am in awe o his greatness and his ability to rebuild his golf swing, dominating with essentially 3 completely different golf swings. There has never been a human with the knowledge and skillset to do what he has done with the golf swing, granted it was by choice, but the simple fact that he had the ability to achieve this feat absolutly impressed me to no end. There will never be another tiger woods.
He didn't knowingly break a rule. There was a discussion with the tournament committee before he signed his card and they decided at that time that there would be no penalty. After additional inquiry, they felt he did take the drop as an advantage. Due to a new rule put in place last year, a penalty can be assessed that does not result in a DQ. (Rule 33-7).
I hope he goes on to win. It will be a pleasure to hear all the media and fans whine and call him a cheater.

Even rule 33-7 is iffy in this case as ignorance ( their words not mine) of the rule is not an excuse.
Ignorance would be the tournament committee telling him that he didn't incur a 2 stroke penalty, then later, after additional inquiry, and after he signed his scorecard based upon their decision, to assess a penalty that would result in his disqualification.
Tiger did exactly what the tournament committee told him to do at the time he signed his card. If they had decided to assess him a 2 stroke penalty at that time, I'm sure he would have agreed to their ruling at that time just like he is agreeing to the assessment of the penalty today.
I, along with most of the world, was taken back by AWESOMENESS that Tiger brought to the game. You cannot deny or ignore his record.
But there was something about his play that started to wear on me. His antics after a bad shot were (and still are) childish.
If I would've acted like that at anytime during a sporting event, my father would've walked right there, slapped the back of my head and insist that I apologize to everyone in attendance, as well as my competitors. That's how I was brought up.
I understand that things have changed somewhat over the years and there's a lot more "ME" in every sporting event, but I think his drama after a bad shot does nothing but lessen the game.
Not one of us turn the channel when he makes a spectacular shot, but when he pounds his club into the ground.............
No one player is great enough to humble the game, but the game is great enough to humble every player...........
I could care less about his personal life, except that I hope he figures things out. I hate to see anyone that struggles with "demons" in their life. I wish him the best.
It's all about the respect that he does not show the game.
Hope that helps you understand why some of us tune out when the talk turns to Tiger.
I don't like Eldrick. Never have, never will. Saw too many things with him with my own eyes loooong before the stuff about his private life finally came to light a few years ago.
Though I will be watching his group like a hawk tomorrow because my college roommate is Tim Clark's caddie - so he should get A LOT of TV time in Eldrick's group tomorrow.
Your team. All the time.
Tim Clark had a hell of a round on Saturday.
Tiger kind of teed this one up for the New York Post.
He moves it around the course pretty well for a guy who would likely get out-driven on the LPGA Tour.
the rule should be this:
Once the round is officially over, no protest from his playing partners or tourney officials, the sun goes down the round is official, PERIOD!
What other sport lets casual sports fans call in the next morning and make the officials reconsider stuff like this is beyond belief? No fans should be allowed to call in and say the ball moved one/thousands of an inch, this is BS.
Little inconclusive things go on in every tourney, TW did not willing or consciously break the rules, end of story! Should not be a penalty, this is on the course officials, they have them on every hole by the way! I was there and
saw them make a ruling on hole #2 green on thurs with Furyk, he thought his ball moved, official came out of the gallery and made the ruling. His ball moved before he addressed it, the ruling was he could move it back with no penalty.
But what should we expect from New York? In the 2000 US Open at Bethpage, we had New Yorkers heckling Sergio Garcia to hit the ball.
