  • Tiger Woods fined for spitting on green

    As much as I love Tiger for what he's brought to the game, this has been a sticking point for me for quite some time with him, and can't for the life of me understand what's going through his mind when he does this.

    It's about time they fine him, and hope they keep coming after him for it as it has to stop.

    It's a smear job. Tiger was framed. The real spitter was Roger McDowell, up on the gravelly road.

      It is a disgusting habit for sure.

        Surprised someone like Tiger with lots of tournament experience would do something like this? The commentator kept saying how a spit could actually interfere with a putt.

          never noticed that it was habitual..is it something unique to him?

            under the rules of golf can you tamp down a loogey or is that improving the line?

              Was about to make a thread on this...
              Was the issue that he spit on the green?
              During the AT&T final round, almost every time the camera was on Steve Marino he would spit, and no one said anything.

                i think the issue was that the commentator made a big deal out of it

                  He's done it way too many times, and am surprised it's taken this long for him to be fined for it.

                  Now mind you he hasn't done it on the greens that I've seen up until yesterday, but even off/around the greens is annoying as hell.

                      To be honest, until I heard about the scandalous spit yesterday, I'd never noticed Tiger spitting before. But then I went on YouTube to try to find the incident in question and discovered a highlight reel of Tiger spitting over the years.

                      I've never understood why people sometimes feel the need to spit. How much extra saliva can you have?

                      Sergio got fined a year or two ago for spitting, though his spit was worse -- he spit in the cup.

                            I am not sure its an actual rule, rather it was deemed to be against the code of conduct and decency.

                            Has the PGA ever issued a similar fine? I doubt that this is the first time Woods has done it, or any other PGA player for that matter.

                              Would you tamp down your own loogie with your own putter? Remind me never loan you my putter if you ever pop a loogie while in my foursome
