Like there is something else that inspires hatred of Tiger
Like what?

I dunno...you got some of the great sports heros in history who did just as much (maybe worse) but this guy is getting crushed. Except Ty Cobb, (who was white, so we can put the race card away) I can’t think of anyone that was that dominant in his sport that was so soundly trounced for off-field behavior. It’s weird.

I remember Mcilroy made a stupid statement on the Golf Channel about a few weeks back about America being weak’ (it was in the tone) and that he also hates coming here.

With liberal influence, America is much weaker than it was relative to the rest of the world, and most days I don't feel like being here either. But there's no better place to go. Rory's 21, so I'll give him some slack.

IMO only, woods has “used” some enhancements...perhaps HGH....perhaps steroids....don’t know for sure but he did have associates that were connected with such..

If you look at his physique now, and look at his physique when he was unbeatable, there’s NO QUESTION he was using performance enhancement drugs, IMHO. Still, the game of golf is truly more mental than physical at that level, but ANY enhancement is a step above the rest in terms of potential. He was “the Great Black Hope”, and a marketing phenomenon as a black (although he’s bi-racial, in fact), and the promotion was all about him being a black golfer in today’s PC world....

Go Rory!

Why don't you change your name to 'Free Ireland52' and be done with it.

We all know he’s a jerkwad sex-addict who cheated on his wife.

We also know it's not ours to condemn...

Phil or Greg Norman were labeled as chokers. McIlroy seems to have gotten a pass today. One more crash and burn like that, and he will be labeled a choker too, fair or not.

McIlroy is a 21 year old. He held up well through is first three rounds. Today, the 4th round, was the test. His youth and inexperience showed. That's not a choker, that's a young man being tried beyond his capabilities. I can't say how he'll factor what happened into his development, but I wish him well. I hope he comes back and succeeds. Look at Dustin Johnson for a lesson on that...

Well, that label of Phil being a choker was really accurate, wasn't it? As for Norman, it was, but how can we say that about a 21 year old who was good enough to lead through 3 rounds of the Masters?

This is a stupid discussion. The kid has his life before him. Maybe, in all fairness, we should wait and see how that plays out...??????

Shooting 80 while in the lead at one major, you can chalk that up to youth and give him a pass. Do it twice, as he now has, and he is a choker. No doubt about it. It is now up to him to prove he is not a choker.

If he were older with more time on tour I'd agree with you. But you hit the nail on the head with his youth and inexperience when it comes to handling the pressure of a Masters weekend. He needs to have a long chat with Dustin Johnson...

“Yeah, I’m a liberal alright.”

I didn’t say you are a liberal - I said you’re acting like one in this case.
