    There are some serious Tiger homers on this forum. What have you seen about his game that gives you fools hope? His game sucks and he is done. Get over it!

    Who really cares what the choke master has to say about Tiger. He’s a big Tiger hater anyway.

    None of us will be watching Tiger this weekend at the Genesis Open. Greg just got a head start on the rest of us.

    Don’t ever come back to Australia Greg. You’re are good dumb American now, so stay there.

    Greg Norman tied for the biggest choke in Masters history. Winner of the biggest ego award in golf. Not worthy of eating Tiger’s dirty underwear.

    That said, who gives a poop what Norman thinks? He has a long history of arrogant self-righteous comments and behavior.

    When he shows up in Naples for the annual shootout event the staff at Tiburon has to be paid bonuses to not quit for the week he is around.

    I listened to this interview and the discussion about Tiger was what? One Minute or so? Greg Norman spoke about so many other subjects and the headline here focuses on Tiger? Come On Man.

      I wonder why the Shark is so dismissive of Tiger Woods. Actually the entrance by Tiger into the game allowed Greg , who was the #1 attraction in pro golf make a graceful exit from the game.

      Those who claim a tint of racism colors Greg’s opinion might just be right. And Norman comparing Dustin Johnson to Tiger Woods is preposterous. Yes Dustin is ranked #1 but Tiger was #1 light years beyond the #2 guy. Besides Johnson was a thug from Myrtle Beach, was involved in the murder of some guy, he supplied the bullets to the shooter. A real thug!

    good, give tiger all the air-time possible.
    the man is a living legend, only rivaled by the likes of michael jordan and wayne gretzky. I love watching him play. I feel privileged to watch him compete again…
    95% of the rest of the tour players are nobodies from the web.com tour so who cares.
    If tiger is playing well and on the hunt, give the man a fat chunk of airtime! heck, even an obese chunk! Besides, it’s not like they don’t show anybody else PERIOD, Greg is just crying because it’s more of like a 60tiger/40rest split in terms of broadcast time, instead of 90rest(akaboring)/10tiger…yeah, duh tiger is gunna get a nice chunk of broadcast time, that’s kinda how it should be when you have an actual living LEGEND in contention, moron. We’re not just talking about some great player here like a phil mickelson, ernie els or a tom watson, we’re talking about an actual legend in the pure sense of the word, something we very likely won’t see again in our lifetime.

    give tiger MORE airtime. ty.

    Nothing better than a Friday morning breakfast of French toast, scrambled eggs, bacon, and coffee!!! Go TIGER!

    Don’t blame him a bit, I agree and will be following suit.

    I’m suffering from Tiger Fatigue syndrome. My doctor told me that if Tiger is within sniffing distance of the lead (that is, less than fifteen shots) to not watch the broadcast. It will be like Tiger is the only golfer out there.

    I have nothing against Tiger. It’s just the media. I mean, North Korea could lob a nuke at us and the network wouldn’t cut away until Tiger sank his 2-foot tap-in and they showed us eight replays. Honestly!

        Hey Gerry Taintgrab,
        I have no idea why you are even on this forum. You are a self-described 90s shooting hack who uses your mom’s Adams golf clubs. Please go on another forum and discuss your love of that golfer who used to be known as Tiger. Peace out brah.

      Yep. I find myself not watching tourneys where Tiger is playing, not because I’m a Tiger hater or a racist, but because I find it boring to see so little of the tournament field.

      Norman is a classless individual anyhow, he could play golf but was a user.

        is there a pga pro more disliked by fellow pros than Greg Norman?

        For good reasons.

        • Gerald Teigrob

          Feb 16, 2018 at 7:01 pm

          I highly doubt it! Always nice to see him lose in the President’s Cup. Seems like he has the same disease as others who support him here have…arrogantitus!

        As an entertainer: Tiger by a small margin.
        As a businessman: Greg hands down.
        As a person: Greg by a small margin and that is not saying much.

        • Steven St Clair

          Feb 16, 2018 at 7:07 pm

          Tiger’s margin small on entertaining? Maybe if you are counting the entertaining swoons and chokes by Norman as big entertainment. How entertaining is it to watch someone swallow 14 majors, almost always with a unique storyline and often with an amazing shot or 5 vs. watching someone choke away another major.

          Tiger hasn’t ever tried as a businessman, hasn’t needed to, so there’s no comparison there.

          As a person: that’s just subjective opinion about 2 personalities that we don’t know except through the media lens.

            Yet another who knows nothing of Norman’s golf career, especially his international success, other than the ’96 Masters. Norman didn’t need to go into business either, but he did because he has the head and perspective for it. Tiger does not have the sophistication to be successful at business without a lot of outside help. Nevermind that Tiger has ruined his brand with his personal antics over the last 10 years. Norman was apparently smart enough to keep his personal shortcomings more private.

    And we care WHY? Greg is STILL pissed because Tiger didnt ask him for help.
    Get OVER IT GREG! Pettiness isnt becoming to you.

    or maybe just tell us why instead of the clickbait for a podcast that I don’t have 40 minutes to listen to.

      Amen! I don’t have the time. Just type it out so I can skim to the part I want to read.

      Pass on this for me!

    Arrogant man, Greg is. Go fishing and dont worry about the PGA Tour buddy.

    Ryan on why he doesn’t care what Greg Norman watches…

  19. Getemgoose

    Had to scroll to listen for the “clickbait”, 16 min he says his 3 sentences about Tiger. “Won’t watch, even if Tiger has the 54 hole lead.” Guy has a lot of things outside golf now, good for him.

  20. What a joke WRX has become

    Feb 16, 2018 at 11:39 am

    Didn’t realize Greg Norman’s opinion on the Genesis Open deserves an article. Oh, wait, that’s just a clickbait headline.

    He is an idiotic racist Aussie like all Aussies after all.

      Idiotic Racist ? Ha ha ha ha, who is the idiot. Stupid racist comment.
