St Andrews, Apr 28 (ANI): Chief of R&A – the regulatory body of golf, Peter Dawson has announced that no extra security will be provided to the beleaguered golfer Tiger Woods at the Golf Open in St Andrews.
The move may leave Woods, who has faced stinging criticism following his numerous extra-marital dalliances at the mercy of jeering spectators.
That notwithstanding, Peter Dawson maintains St Andrews is not “a police state and people can say what they like as long as it doesn”t put them off and it is not intrusive to the game.
“The response we saw at Augusta was not exactly enthusiastic. The overwhelming feeling was relief. Tiger was back when it looked like he might be out for quite some time.” the Sun quoted him, as saying.
“His behaviour deteriorated. No one who cares for the etiquette of the game would have been happy” he added.
Woods’ unsportsmanlike at the Masters this year had shocked spectators after he threw clubs and uttered obscenities as he missed a cut in a Major for the first time in thirteen years as a pro.
Woods has made a comeback to professional golf in the aftermath of intense personal turmoil and negative publicity. (ANI)
