Not all eyes are on Tiger

  • Follow Letters

The front page of the Sports section June 15 bore the headline “All eyes on Tiger.” That is a misnomer, because not all eyes are on golfer Tiger Woods.

It is a fact that at the Masters Tournament on the 13th hole, he missed a shot and came out with the Lord’s name in vain, as he has on several occasions. I have, for what it is worth, boycotted NBC, as this has happened on several occasions, also on ESPN.

When we put our priorities on a person such as Tiger, we are showing what kind of nation we truly are. Support the golfers who show Christian attitudes, such as Bubba Watson, Ricky Fowler and Bill Haas, just to name a few. They have their priorities straight.

I don't follow golf, but hasn't the Masters been on CBS, not NBC, for over 50 years?

We need to throw all our

We need to throw all our support behind good men of faith. We need to stand together to support whomever shows strong morals. I wouldn't exactly throw Tiger under the bus because he cursed as quite a few of us are guilty of the same. Its his history of dishororable behavior that caused me to lose interest in him. I don't wish him bad luck, I just don't care what or how he does. I just won't support him.

Isn't it just Golf?

How 'bout we just enjoy watching good golf. Does everything have to have some other context?

No it isn't just Golf. Golf

No it isn't just Golf. Golf is more than just hitting a small white ball around the course. It is about the integrity of the players, the sportsmanship and respect that they give the game and each other. I can honestly say that I've watch a lot of golf (my cross to carry with three men in the house) and I have never seen or heard another golfer show disrespect for the game and it's players as Tiger has. I can say that I've never heard a golfer curse (much less take the Lord's name in vain), knowing it would be captured on recording and played for all to watch. You can't get much disrespectful than that, in my opininon.

I don't know about CBS, but

I don't know about CBS, but The Open was on NBC this year. I think perhaps it is a bidding war to see which network gets to air the tournaments.
