Australian resort owner calls Tiger Woods 'an emotional train wreck'

Kick him while he is down. This seems to be the approach taken by Australian golf course owner Clive Palmer in regards to the much-maligned Tiger Woods.

Palmer appears to think that his course, and the sport in general, would be better off without Woods as its proverbial face. From The Australian:

“Tiger Woods isn’t the No 1 golfer in the world any more,” Palmer said. “We don’t want to look backwards, we want to look forwards. So why would you get Tiger Woods here? I would prefer to have Peter Senior than Tiger Woods.

“I am sure Peter Senior could beat Tiger Woods on a good day. I am sure he could.

“Tiger Woods has improved a lot but he’s an emotional wreck and he’s not a good example for kids, anyway.”

Palmer is seeking to convince PGA Tour officials to keep the Australian PGA Championship at his resort on the Sunshine Coast. Palmer Coolum Resort just wrapped up hosting the aforementioned tournament on Sunday.

I am no expert, but I have got to believe that refusing to invite golf's most well-known figure isn't likely to help his cause.

But this is also coming from the same guy who brought in a giant dinosaur to his course.


  1. He only had an affair it's not like he went out & murdered someone. You're think he was the only golfer whoever had an affair. Shame on Palmer. Evidently he doesn't realize if it wasn't for Tiger Woods, golf would not be what it is today. We hardly ever watched golf until he starting playing.I feel the other pros get higher paychecks because of Tiger. They weren't paying the winner of a championship several million dollars for winning. I hope his golf course never earns another dime. Because who will be next that he doesn't want on the course. If I were Tiger I'd hold my head up high and tell Palmer to go to hell. Who needs him anyway. Maybe he's just jealous of Tiger's talents and his good looks. Isn't this discrimination? Good luck Tiger in whatever you decide to do. Lori

  2. just another mouth running FAT FV*K!

  3. This is coming from a person who has never been tested to see if he would make the same choices that Tiger made, people make mistakes. Tiger Woods is the best thing that has happen to golf since Jack. Lets see how you have made your money, probably from the sweat of someone else hardwork. If you point your index finger at Tiger, your thumb is pointed back at you. GOOD LUCK TIGER IN 2013

  4. Blow heart with mouth that moves well ahead of brain (saying there is one).

    Did we forget Wood's foundation for children to play golf???

    This guy needs to stay in Australia and snow ski.

  5. If I was that fat and ugly, I'd be mad too. Let's hope he doesn't have any mirrors in his house because he'll scare himself everytime he looks. Go Tiger!
