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."

Sounds like nothing more than your basic Tiger hater.

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.
