Everyone’s freaking out about this kid who snuck inside the ropes for Tiger’s autograph



During Tiger Woods’ Wednesday practice round at the Valspar Championship, a particularly bold young fan slipped under the ropes and approached the 14-time major champion.

Golf‘s Dylan Dethier captured the tiny trespasser in action.

Now, in assessing the early #taeks on this event, many have pointed out in previous Woodsian eras, Steve Williams would have tackled the tot like he were suspected of wearing a dynamite vest. Joe LaCava however, is caddie to a kinder, gentler, Tiger, one who, perhaps surprisingly, gave the enterprising young man his signature.

And while this may seem on the surface like a heartwarming told of a cute little boy in a “Tiger, my mom wants your autograph” tee shirt, it is dangerous. Dangerous, I say! A veritable menace!

We’re setting a potentially disastrous precedent here at Tour events. “Don’t queue up after the round to get your favorite player’s autograph, just bull rush him during a practice round, kids!”

And the possible ripple effect of the endorsement of this child’s brazen behavior is even more troubling. Today he learned that he can break the rules and benefit in a big way. What happens when he begins applying this logic in other arenas of his life?

Tiger Woods ought to have denied the young man’s request, scolded him for his fairway invasion, and sent him back outside the ropes empty handed.

Discipline! Character building! Actions and consequences! What has our society come to?

And does this child’s mother really want Tiger Woods’ signature, or is this merely a calculated rouse to get the golf legend’s ‘graph?

We’re obviously dealing with a budding criminal mastermind here, so anything is possible…which isn’t to touch on the conspiracy theory that the boy’s family may have sent him inside the ropes, knowing he had the best chance of scoring the autograph they clearly so desire.

Yes, you’ll want to remember this face, folks, you’ll see it on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted List (and in your nightmares) soon enough.

But really, credit to Woods and those involved for the handling of this situation…let’s just hope the lad’s parents reminded him fairway invasion is a faux pas (but also life is a gamble, take calculated risks, and all that good stuff).

    Calm down Ben, you are the one who seems to be “freaking out”. If Tiger hadn’t signed the shirt what would the reaction have been then …

    And you are now doing publicity for this kind of event.

    He’s lost that killer instinct. Probably rather stoop down to smell the flowers rather than read a putt. The old Tiger would have scared that kid to wet his pants and called that his signature moment.

    Old Tiger didn’t sign no autographs for no stinking kids or their hot moms

    He is truly a changed man

National Golf Foundation’s nationwide course surveys show human and business impacts Coronavirus has had on golf



National Golf Foundation

The National Golf Foundation has conducted multiple surveys to study both the human and business impacts that the Coronavirus (Covid-19) continues to have on the game of golf.

Amongst their findings, the NGF found that based on phone surveys for over 1,000 golf facilities, 74% of in-season golf courses remain open despite the current Coronavirus pandemic. (As of March 27)

National Golf Foundation

The organization also revealed that there is a temporary golf course closure in the following states – Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusettes, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Washington and Wisconsin.

National Golf Foundation

From a golf business standpoint, the NGF asked the ‘Top 100 businesses in golf’ how the ongoing spread of the Coronavirus had affected their business – with 23% saying severely, and 42% saying significantly.

National Golf Foundation

The consumer perspective has also changed dramatically due to the pandemic. The NGF’s findings show that while previously the situation had not had an impact on consumer’s golf equipment purchase decisions, the research now shows that the vast majority are now delaying any golf equipment spending.

Check out all the findings from the NGF’s research here at
