Tiger Woods Spits On Green, Upsets The Golf World (Video)

Tiger Woods was once regarded as a model citizen, but that image has since given way to one that portrays him as a cheating husband with a rabid potty-mouth…and now a disrespectful spitter as well?

That is what some were left thinking after Woods unleashed a mouth full of saliva onto the 12th green during his final round at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic.  Woods headed into the final round just one shot off the lead, but a score of 75 dropped him all the way down to 20th.  It was a round that would see Tiger lose both a shot at his first victory in almost 15 months, and the respect of many in the golf community, including Sky Sports commentator Ewen Murray, who had the following to say about Woods’ loogie:

“You look at his work ethics and he is a credit to the game and an inspiration to all of those who are trying to become professional golfers.  But there are some parts of him that are just arrogant and petulant.  Somebody now has to come behind him and maybe putt over his spit. It does not get much lower than that.” [Sporting Life]

Just when things appeared to be looking up for Tiger, this may change all of that.  Although, I can’t help but ask what the big deal is?  So the man had a bad taste in his mouth that he wanted to get rid of.  That spit probably just absorbed into the ground along with all the bird droppings and unpleasant substances before it, prior to any balls passing through.  And if that wasn’t the case, it wouldn’t be the first time Woods’ fluids have left their mark on someone.

Here is another look at the loogie.
