Should Tiger receive the same wrath as Lebron?
This is huge!! This is Buster Douglas knocking out Mike Tyson huge!
Last June, Nike stablemate Lebron James took some hits from national media for being unsportsmanlike - immediately leaving the court after his loss and skipping the media interviews.
Flash forward to this evening... Tiger is soundly beaten head to head after having a lead going into the final day of a major for the first time. After the last putt, it was just a little handshake to Yang and immediately leaving the course - skipping his typical interview with CBS after the match. Should Tiger receive the same wrath as Lebron?
The golf telecasts are centered around tiger, so he should provide a little review after the match - good or bad. How hard could it have been?
"Yang had a big shot late in the round to eagle the par 4 to take the lead... I hit my shots well but the putter wasn't quite there. Congratulations to Mr. Yang and the big opportunity to make golf more popular in his homeland..."
Instead, he cuts out without a comment. The coverage is definitely centered around Tiger. Fridays TNT coverage left the air after Tiger finished the 18th with other golfers still on the course (Lee Westwood was only a few shots back on the 17th). The other thing that was odd was the final putt today. If Tiger was in the winning position, Yang would have finished his putting to clear the area for Tiger to sink the winning putt. Today, Tiger waits for Yang to putt out before trying his putt. Tiger's ball was only a few inches further than Yang's - why not ask to finish out to give Mr. Yang is well deserved last putt of the tournament?
This is huge!! USA Hockey beating Russia huge!
