Blown out of proportion. The Americans bent so much backward to be PC. What words did we expect SW to use? Purple a------? He made a nasty remark, but he was just being frank in his expression. Strange that in the West, USA especially, a mere mention of the word black will be perceived as being racist.

TW handled it well, and showed his upperhand by accepting SW's apology. Hope he can show the world that he is back in form for golf this week.

I agree to a certain extent, Greg Norman, (Steve caddied for him for years) said Steve is not a racsist bloke.

I dont think he is either, I think when he has a few beers he just opens his mouth before he engages his brain!

I worked for Americans for 20+ years, and I am closely aware of their sensitivites on race issues.

The baggage remains with Americans, they are still guilt laden with racial discrimination from days of slavery. But that's way past in history, and slavery was corrected by a white man, so they should just get over it, both black and white.

All those who defended SW were non Americans - McDowell, McIlroy, Adam, Norman etc. None of the Americans even dare open his mouth on this issue, except for Fred Couple. And Dustin Johnson, who sided with SW. (Johnosn lost his caddie to TW recently so he may be still sore).

This is happening to us all too when we had one too many. Suddenly we have the courage to speak up after the beer. Beer
