Oh no! Tiger Woods Caught Spitting on the Greens

With so much attention that is always focused on Tiger Woods, you would think he would have knew that the cameras would catch him in the act of spitting on the course. This is a big etiquette no-no in the world of golf. Woods was participating in the Omega Dubai Desert Classic over the weekend when the incident occurred. On the 12th green, Tiger can be seen apparently with a substance coming out of his mouth. Upon further inspection it was confirmed by tournament officials and also Woods that he indeed was spitting.

Officials at the tournament were so upset that they fined Woods an undisclosed amount and Woods agreed with them by saying on his twitter page “The Euro Tour is right – it was inconsiderate to spit like that and I know better. Just wasn’t thinking and want to say I’m sorry.” That is just the latest in a series of bad publicity for Woods, as we all know of the of his infidelity issues he had with wife Elin Nordegren, that eventually led to their divorce and his fall from grace in the media. His golf game has never recovered either.

Woods is still searching for his first victory since the scandal broke (The Australian Masters in November of 2009 was his last) and was in the running to win the tournament until he bombed out on the last day shooting a round of 75 in the final round.

  1. I golf a lot. I also (unfortunately) spit a lot. It's a nasty habit, I know. I can guarantee 90 percent of the players on tour spit, but I can show where Tiger went wrong. First off, he did it on the green, where the grass is an eighth of an inch high, it's like spitting on a basketball court. And second, he hocked a BIG one. Unfortunately the camera just happened to be on him, but then again, when is it not? He deserves the fine, if you're gonna do it, do it discretely. It's easy, I've managed doing it away from the cameras all these years! (get it? there are no cameras)
