Revisiting the "Tiger Tandrum" Connundrum for a Moment
I'd like to thank One-Eyed for directing me to this incredible article from Golf Digest in 2004, when Earl Woods talked about Tiger's behavior on the golf course.
His exact quote goes as follows ...
Yes, Tiger is known to swear on the course. You can't have it both ways. You can't have the fire, intensity, competitiveness and aggressiveness if you don't blow off steam. Profanity is the language of youth. I don't say it's right, I just say that's the way it is.
Tiger is 33. Far from a youthful excuse anymore, if you ask me. That being said, I yelled the f-word yesterday loudly when I hit a bad drive on 17, so who am I to criticize?
