In Dubai? He's probably lucky he didn't have his tongue cut out for that.

The elites of the world see it as disrespectful and gross. The tournament acted like he took a crap in the 12th hole. Which may be the appropriate response from Tiger. I might respect him again if he did that. :)

In Dubai ???? In the 3rd world countries, spitting every 30 seconds is quite an ordinary habit.

After seeing the story, I came here to say What about Andre Agassi blowing snot rockets on court all the time? That was so gross! This is one of very few times I agree 100% with golf and their rules which are sometimes stupid.

I know some of those countires over there will throw you in jail for spitting in public. So that has somehting to do with it.

But as a purely golf standpoint. In atournament where there hundereds of thousands of dollars on the line. I would not want to have a putt lined up heading directly in the hole to have it skid through some spit and miss by 1/2 an inch. So the fact that it is on a green makes it worse also.

Parts of Dubai are like a third world country but parts of America look like a third world country to me. Dubai is not 14 bil in debt.

Great point.

Also, cutting down the other (non US) countries is beside the point. Tiger broke the rules of golf while playing golf. If he finished his golf game and went downtown and spit on the sidewalk, or on the floor indoors somewhere public, that would be a different issue.

And when a person is in a foreign country, he/she represents the country they came from. They need to be on their best behavior. I as an American have been embarrassed by him.

Is there time violation rule in those countries, I mean if you spit after 35 seconds?

Guys, i am not trolling but trust me on this, spitting is okay. It's a guy thing.

If you don't believe me, watch Titanic. See Kate spit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zY8HZAQag-o
