Tom Watson has not been shy about praising the skills of Tiger Woods over the years, but he expressed concern in a television interview aired Thursday about how Woods’ bad behavior is affecting the game.
“It’s bad for our game,” Watson said of the Woods’ sex scandal in an interview with KSHB-TV, a Kansas City NBC affiliate. “It’s something he needs to get control of and a handle on and make some amends and show some humility to the public when he comes back.”
Watson said some of Woods’ questionable behavior on the course can’t be ignored, either.
“His swearing and his club throwing, that should end,” Watson said. “That’s not part of what we want to project as far as the professional golf tour is concerned.”
