See what I mean, tmf9? This is a pretty common view of Sergio, I think we can safely say. People "love" Tiger's on course attitude, but not Sergio's. Why? Is it because he's Spanish? Maybe, I don't know. But I bet it has mostly to do with the fact that he's not a winner.
I'll say it again. People don't love Tiger because of his behavior. They put up with it (or don't mind it) because he wins.
I dont think nationality is a point, as people appreciate other spanish players. as for me I live one hour from spain.
tiger has had a couple of bad moves on the course yet they illustrate he's pissed of with himself. (to my point of view).
sergio punishes anything but himself. He plows bunkers, hits trees and fairways, spits in bogeys, trows club is water, looks at the sky as gods punished one, cries in his mothers arms, says to the media that the when his ball hit the pin it flew yards away yet any other players ball would go in...
not the same to me !
