    Maybe if we were given guns to play our game with, We might occasionally need to kick our gun for letting us down when we really needed some help.

    Kicking a club! I've seen clubs drowned, helicoptered, broke, broke over the knee, jack hammered, broke over trees,.... not me mind you. Mostly at charity tournaments when the "Beer Cart" has been by those type of fellas tooooo much. Always keep an eye open at such events later in the day. Fun viewing. Have also played with a few idiots in my day.

    Of course, the above events did not occur at Augusta!!

    I am glad you libby non- competitive sobs sit back and judge this guy! I have thrown, snapped, drowned many clubs over the years and I certainly did not hurt any of you pussies! You probably subscribe to all little leaguers get to play 3 innings even if you suck like most of you do! Have a nice day! Tom Rhoads

    Have you ever watched any other professional sport? Hell Tiger is a saint in comparison. Thugs cussing and fighting in hopes a game actually breaks out. So kicking a club is for sure reason to execute the guy. He has done more for the PGA tour than any athelete in any other professional sport. And i hate golf but admit the truth.

    Never kicked a bowling ball but took it home and shot it with full house 44 mag! Amazing how the jacket came back at me! Cut my face and never shot another one! Tom Rhoads

    It happens in all sports, if you don't want to win, you may as well stay home.The PGA tries to keep it under control but if you are competive, it's going to happen. I saw a shooter have a bad post in Caps yesterday, move the speaker very ruffly then he changed post, throwing hulls and making signs are just as bad, to win, what $35.00, try playing for Millions and see what comes out

    Hell that isn't anything. I saw Tom Weiskopf beat a small bush to death with a sand wedge. His caddy had to stop him.

    Shadow, do mean Tommy "Thunder" Bolt, who built a fire and burnt his wooden staff clubs in the middle of the fairway during a tourment.

    I used to play tournament racqueball, had a jerk pull that stuff on the court and I warned him to cool it. He pulled same trick soon so I drilled him right in the liver with a 100mph shot. He told me years after best thing he ever learned, do not piss off your opponent, want to throw a tantrum go do it in private. If your tantrum messes my game up I retaliate.

    I remember Tommy Bolt, played in a Pro Am with him once. he was colorful but people liked him. Tiger has lost his fans. I saw him say the God Da** word at the masters several times. Golf has had some temper losers but still is the sport with the most class and always will be

    One and the same. Quiet a colorful character in his day. He won the U.S, Open,or maybe it was the PGA, one year. Not a shabby golfer at all, but had a way with words we normally do not use when ladies are present----LOL.

    I had a habit of slamming my driver head down hard when I would slice a drive(about every other drive). I did this one morning after teeing off on hole #1. Hole #2 was a par 3 so no driver needed. Hole #3 was a par 5 so I grabbed my driver and swung away. I guess after slamming my driver down on hole #1, the head cracked where it attaches to the shaft. When I swung, the driver head flew further than my ball. I ended up using my 3 wood the rest of the day and decided to take it a little easier on my clubs.

    Tiger Woods is human and gets pissed like the next guy. The difference is most of us play for fun. This guy does it for his profession. I think the pressure to play good is more than we can imagine.

    the best and most competitive people i know have poker faces. win loose or draw you will never see it in their emotions, shooting, golf or cards. and the best of them are gracious about their wins

    Tell me that you have never seen a shooter hurl his shotgun out past the trap house after a bad round!

    I have seen several supposedly grown men do that!
