Fellow PGA Pros Speak Out On Tiger Woods: 'A Phony And A Fake'
This is how bad it's getting for Tiger Woods: even his fellow pros are now starting to speak out against him.
First it was Jesper Parnevik expressing his frustration and disappointment, saying he "probably thought [Woods] was a better guy than he is." But Parnevik's outrage is understandable, given that he was the one who initially introduced Elin Nordegren to Tiger Woods.
Now, however, two players with no apparent direct connection to the scandal are taking their shots at Tiger. Ben Crane, an eight-year pro with two wins on the PGA Tour, and Charles Warren, a six-year veteran of the PGA Tour, each sharply criticized Woods, on the record, in the current issue of Life & Style magazine. (Visor tip: Sports By Brooks)
"This is no surprise to anyone who knows Tiger," said Crane, pictured above. "He's a phony and a fake and he can't retain that squeaky-clean endorsement deal any longer."
Crane also hinted that Elin Woods could have known all about Woods' alleged extramarital activities. "She's no fool," he said, and speculated that she possibly "turned a blind eye because of the money and the kids and the lifestyle he provides."
Warren also had a bit of advice for Elin, with uncompromising words for Woods. "She was very young when Jesper introduced them," Warren said. "She had stars in her eyes and maybe dollar signs too. But no, she should not stay with him.
What kind of message would that send to her sister and mother and all the women out there? prominence and, in turn, their paychecks. But Crane's comments indicate that Tiger's alleged proclivities were an open secret among Tour players.

“A phony and a fake”??? I thought they were talking about Obama.
NO WAY!!! I'M SHOCKED!!!
wasn’t Elin Parvenik’s nanny?
And these guys have made a lot more money because of Tiger.
Fear not, a vast majority of the gutless wonders have remained silent.
“I’m glad he got caught and not me”
Tiger is slime but the fan boys will cheer on a man who lied and violated the trust of his wife dozens of times and also lied to his fans.
Tiger fan boys are bigger kool aid drinkers than obama voters.
I dunno, maybe a phony in life. But out there on the course, certainly the real deal.
This will blow over and Tiger never forgets those who slighted him. Throughout the years, he made it a personal vendetta to kill them on the golf course. Just like Kobe who almost had the same scandal, this will eventually go away in time but Tiger wont forget. There was 1 golfer who talked smack about him and Tiger whupped him at a golf tourney while the press hounded the poor guy to humiliation.
That’s OK.......thoes idiot golf announcers Dan Hicks and Johnny Miller will keep their kneepads on for Tiger.
I actually have no respect for these guys. They haven’t done anything other than pile on. And sound envious to me.
Tiger is a disgrace. No sense in adding their two cents.
These golfing guys should keep a dignified silence.
Granted, golf has benefited from Tiger but it was here before Tiger and it will be here after Tiger.
The PGA should have the "balls" to censor Tiger because his actions has brought shame to the organization.
Tiger has enough problems without all these no-name yahoo’s chiming in. These guys come across as jealous whiners. Sure Tigers actions should be condemned, but I really hope he can turn his life around and be a good husband and father from now on. I am not even a Tiger woods fan, but I will cheer for him to change.
That could change if steroids comes out. His Canadian "doctor" who helped TW recover from knew surgery is under pressure for his "blood spinning" technique used on Tiger.
Considering the HUGE increase in his muscles and physique, I'd say steroids is a real possibility and show him as a fraud on the course, too.
Cheating on his wife makes cheating on the course easy.
As long as they can golf, he has no say.
How many times here is it demanded peer groups apologize or distance themselves from others in other areas?
JACK Nicklaus said the fallout over Tiger Woods' car crash and allegations of extramarital affairs is "none of my business".
They should be lauded for speaking the truth about the phony.
