Dottie Pepper Doesnt Like Twitter


Golf Channel and NBC analyst Dottie Pepper didn't mince words when asked Thursday what she thought of LPGA Commissioner Carolyn Bivens' idea of using Twitter to communicate with fans in the middle of rounds.
'I think it's absurd, absolutely absurd,' Pepper said.
Pepper made the comment during a Golf Channel teleconference Thursday promoting next week's telecast of the McDonald's LPGA Championship.
Pepper said she likes the idea of building fan bases with new media, but not with tweets in the middle of rounds. She said the LPGA has made great strides speeding up play but using Twitter during rounds would be a step backwards.
'Competition is competition, time away is time away,' Pepper said.
