If there was one golfer that got the most heat of anyone right now, it would have to be Tiger Woods. Some want him to quit the game forever. Others want him to take the rest of the year off. People are mad at him, disappointed, confused, weirded out. It's a strange situation, and just a few minutes on Twitter will show you the obvious outrage.
So lucky for Team Tiger, Woods doesn't spent a lot of time on that social networking outlet. Maybe Rory McIlroy should follow suit.
The Golf Channel's European Tour analyst Jay Townsend, who has played some professional golf in his life, took a shot at Rory's course management on Twitter, saying "McIlroy's course management was shocking." Apparently, Rory wasn't a big fan of that, and this is what he wrote back.
Ehh, come on Rory, you're better than that. Anytime I write anything controversial over at Yahoo!, I get four or five comments about how "I don't know because I never played on the PGA Tour!", and trust me, if I'm comparing you to a Yahoo! commenter, it isn't a compliment.
But I guess that just shows youth and fire. I don't hate that he fired back, I just wish he would have gone about it another way. While I don't love LeBron James that much, I still respect how he handled that ridiculous question during the NBA Playoffs about him shrinking in the fourth quarter. That is how superstars handle critics.
