It could be the color of Tiger Woods' skin or that he has won too much; the amount of money and fame he has and that he cheated on his wife; and that, in America, some live to build a man up and then revel in his failures.

I thought it was racism but now that excuse no longer flies for TW. He is an unashamed egomanical Whoremonger and a horrific example of a Father, and an American Man. Throwing clubs and his hissy fit tantrums demean and devalue the entire Golf Community.

tiger is an A--h---e plain and simple and always has been. His arrogance and general attitude had to be tolerated when he was on top but now that he has shown the world the kind of man he really always has been the party is over and it couldnt happen to a nicer guy. It has NOTHING TO DO WITH HIS COLOR. If he never wins another tournament it will be fine with me.
Woods is a total goof

No one watched Golf except golfers until Tiger came on the scene and dominated the sport. I know people who donít golf but will watch if Tigerís in the field. He fell from grace and has picked up himself up; heís the one that has to live with what heís done to his wife and children. We dufferís hit a bad shot our expressions and thoughts are no different than Tigerís except his is on national television for all to see and comment about.

Tiger Woods is the best golfer that ever lived, bar none. People hate the best, the winners, the people who achieve the highest degree of excellence in their field. There isn't a person out there that should cast a stone, period!!!
Whiners, snivelers, complainers all!! You guys should man up and admit that w/out Tiger, golf is like womens' pro basketball - booorrrrinnnngggg!!

Wait a second... I forgot we determine success on how he treat's his wife, if he spits and swears. His arrogance/attitude. DROPPING a club!!!!! You guys are correct but going the wrong direction. How about we get back to GOLF. People hate tiger woods BECAUSE NOBODY ON EARTH CAN DO WHAT HE DOES....
Don't like tiger because he takes everything for granted! Doesn't appreciate fans or even acknowledge their existence. He is nothing without fans and still treats them as a nuisance. Without fans he is paying to play like the rest of us. Control freak needs mental help, no one around him will tell him that because he controls them too. Personal life is irrelevant to me.

Glad Tiger finally won again. Not enough to shut up all you Tiger haters who have better in their lives than to trash the best player in the game. He is not a perfect person in many ways, no-one is or ever will be. He has done more for golf in many ways than anyone else will ever come close to.
Anxiously waiting another win because Tiger is far from washed up!!!

Tiger is so disliked and that's because of his attitude...Dan Jenkins wrote about him several months ago and all you have to do is read his article on Tiger to know why people dislike him so much.

Love him or hate him the golf world needs him and he's exciting to watch.Golf wouldn't have been as popular if it wasn't for him.Yeah he's an arrogant twit at times but so are others.Imagine someone as boring as westwood being in tigers shoes.Nobody would be watching and people like Tiger,Rory and bubba make golf exciting at the moment

Tiger has played some great golf but he has dragged the sport down. Easter weekend at the Masters and I heard him say the GD words two times. The coverage was all about Tiger on Friday but not even a mention of his name on Saturday. Golf is a gentlemans' game and the game should be respected as such. That is why I dislike Tiger Woods.
