"Spirit of the games is not winning but taking part"

But these are elite professional golfers ... They play to win ... Laughing

Agree.. In a competitions, it's all abt winning .. Legally of cos... As for exhibition , charity ... It's abt taking taking part......

I agree that for professional, its about winning. However, I feel that tiger is not a good role model. Throwing and kicking his clubs, swearing, etc. I just feel that Tiger and Sergio are not graceful in defeat unlike Jack Nicklaus and Phil Mickelson. Having said that I'm still a fan of TW.

Ego is the biggest enemy of human being, where a goose think he's a swan....

guess what? now the marshalls said they never spoken to Tiger to tell him that SG has hit his shot and he can pull out the fw to much cheers from fans and distraction to SG who was about to hit his shot

tsk tsk tsk... so, TW may not be the nicest guy around, but nobody said it is a popularity contest. Good guys don't necessarily finish first...

Nail it on the head, DRGjr72!

I believe somewhere in the R&A rules, if a player brings disrepute to the game, there is something something something.....Cool

Have a great week ahead.

The problem is it is all about winning. However after the event or round or whatever is over you should be able to take off your hat, visor or whatnot and shake a persons hand.

As a former professional who has played at the highest level, respect of your competitors is one of the great things about the game of golf. Regardless of winning or losing, shake the man's hand and say something nice. The person with the lowest score wins, despite how it happened. I have had many occasions where I did not like the guy I was playing with and we were hyper competitive. At the end of the round, the golf was over and whether you played well or not, you shook the guys hand and said great round or you will get em next time or something of the sort. It takes a bigger man to put the round and the nonsense behind them and be a gentleman.

Missing in many parts of society today, not just golf.

Clearly Sergio and Tiger don't get along. Tough situation as we don't know all the details of why the dislike is there. I don't know who is at fault, although I do get the impression from TV and what I have heard that Sergio is little off mentally and Tiger is not the coolest/nicest guy out there. So maybe it is just a combo of two extreme personality types that converge to produce an extremely uncomfortable pairing.

Who was right and who was wrong, it is immaterial now as it can't change the fact that one winner has emerged on Sunday ... Here is a recap - TW's road to victory ... Sit back, relax and enjoy another fabulous performance from the World's #1!

Too much arm chair officials, the official following should have the final say
