Tiger unwelcome at aussie event ...

16 posts in this topic

pretty harsh ... would seem to be far more to this than meets the eye.

"Tiger Woods isn't the No 1 golfer in the world any more," Palmer said. "We don't want to look backwards, we want to look forwards. So why would you get Tiger Woods here? I would prefer to have Peter Senior than Tiger Woods.

"I am sure Peter Senior could beat Tiger Woods on a good day. I am sure he could.

"Tiger Woods has improved a lot but he's an emotional wreck and he's not a good example for kids, anyway."

For those who read this, that's Clive Palmer, the local crckpot, not Arnold Palmer the hall of famer.

Sounds like nothing more than your basic Tiger hater.

Maybe they just didn't want to pay an exorbitant appearance fee?

Maybe so, but he sure went out of his way to bash Tiger.

This seemed pretty strange until I read the linked article about the large dinosaur he built between the 9th and 10th that not only moves but roars.  He has some 'interesting' ideas for the course too by the sounds of it.

Why would any tourney not want Tiger there. He draws people in to watch. He is better to have at your event than a giant damn dinosaur. But, if Clive would rather have a dinosaur than Tiger, that is his choice. I am sure the Australian PGA can find a better place to host an event.

This guy is the local equivalent of Donald Trump , total space cadet. He's also building a replica of the Titanic in China , who will be game enough to go on that maiden voyage? The Dinosaur at Coolum , he wants to put a couple of hundred more around the course. It's a pretty sure bet the PGA won't be at this froot loops course next year so his opinion on Tiger Woods don't mean squat .

The next best thing to having Tiger at your event is having all the press reporting on your bashing of Tiger......

Reverse psychology. He wants Tiger to show up with a chip on his shoulder, throw out f-bombs, set the course record, and lead the charge where he, Ben Crane and the Golf Boys plus 1000 fans tip that T-Rex over and stomp it into a bazillion pieces. Hey, I'd pay to see that.

The guy is an idiot, Tiger still draws the biggest galleries and is the most recognized name on Tour.  Sounds like this guy took a page out of Miceli's handbook on how to get famous bashing Tiger.

Exactly what I was thinking! A very unoriginal attempt to drum up interest in an event.

    • Finding Value in The Used Club Market
      I'm liking this:   That makes a lot of sense.  Local Retailers may be getting some of the last years models dumped on them when the new clubs start cycling through.  I was thinking about doing the demo days thing to get a taste of what is out there.  The R7 limited and R11 Taylormade Drivers were good to me.  I think a X2 hot/Big Bertha/etc/ect would probably be more forgiving.  Still, I look at the clubs of old... the Cleveland Launcher Comp / Callaway Hawkeye and think: "If I can buy that club for $20... and I can buy newer (used) for $50-$100... hmmm.  Spinning the wheels.  Thanks for the advice though I really appreciate it. If anyone has a Driver / had a Driver they loved from (2009-2014) let me know about it!  What did you like/didn't like?
    • My ex-home courses closing, changing - proofs that golf is in decline
      I just found out that my ex-home course, Sunol Valley Golf course, went out of business last month.  I played 2 - 3 times a week for 2 years not too long ago.  The course was done in by shrinking golfers, and 500% increase in water cost in the last 4 years of CA drought.  They could not make money.   Another ex-home course is now doing business as a golf and foot golf (soccer golf) course.  Golfing customers were not enough. Another course nearby (Santa Clara Tennis and Golf Club) is going to turn into a parking lot for a recently built football stadium. It is sad that despite improved economy in Bay Area, CA, golf business is in decline.  They have been in decline since 1990s but most of the courses around here survived 2008-9 recession.  The current drought and the resulting water cost going through the roof appears to be the final nail in the coffin for the weaker courses.   Sad.
    • Injury Question
      I didn't play golf for about 11 weeks due to it being difficult to play with work after day light savings time fell back.  Now, from the sounds of it, I played through the majority of the repair time as I walked 9 holes 4-5 times a week with 1 day of walking 18 for 7-9 weeks after the injury....I know, I'm an idiot. As it stands now I don't really notice it 90% of the time, its just something that pops up on a swing every now and then.  From the sounds of your healing time, I may have caused it to heal improperly leaving me with a hitch....  If I really just need to not do anything and it'll heal over time then I'd gladly do it, kicking and screaming the entire way as I already had a plan in place to push my handicap into the single digits by years end. I don't like the sound of having something happen as "I get older," I'm only 26 damn it .
    • Injury Question
      I had this injury last spring/summer. You have pulled your intercostal muscles in your ribs. It is a nasty injury which requires a lot of downtime (4-6 weeks minimum more like 8 weeks) to let them repair. It happens as we get older. You need to research ways to heal and take time off from doing those motions such as winding up and releasing. It took 4 months to completely heal and that included lots of ibuprofen as an anti inflammatory and stretching. Take the time off to stop the inflamation or it won't go away and could take longer to heal. It is a difficult process that takes time and when you first feel like you are okay you are more than likely to re injure and make it as bad or worse. You just have to take your medicine or that painful stitch won't go away.
