Do I wish (Tiger) well? Yeah, but I'm not interested in watching him," Nicklaus said. "I've watched him play golf for 20-something years, why would I want to go watch more? I don't watch anybody play golf." ......

Non story. Same idiotic media that keeps pressing tiger about explaining his personal issues. Jack clearly said he's not really interested in watching anyone play golf. God I hate the media and their useless click bait.

What the media says someone said...
"I hate golf!"

But the part the cut out really sort of changes things....
"I hate golf in the rain when I have a cold!"

That's pretty much how they go about reporting now. Take a small part of what is said, selectively highlight it and run with it as if it is the whole statement.

Sad.....

The man has been around golf for over 60 odd years.  Doesn't seem strange at all that he's not interested in watching anyone play golf, as he's probably bored out of his mind with it.  

I'm with him...every year it gets less and less interesting to spend time watching someone else play golf, when I could use that time doing something myself

congrats to Jack ,  I could care less if Tigger ever teed it up again in his life.  He made golf from a quiet game to a juggernaut where people yell half way across a golf course and act like idiots.  These same idiots would never have stepped on a golf course years ago.  It was called cow pasture pool and made fun of by lots of people.  It was perfectly acceptable.  1998 was the year all the idiots came to play.  that was the year I went from semi public or public courses to private country clubs with a hefty fee.   keep the riff raff out.   i dont care what nationality you are,  just follow the rules like it was done in Bobby Jones era.   Not that Mashed potato crap.

Yeah it was obviously a flame thrower headline but Jack’s words “I’m not interested at all.” were probably not the best choice.  I am guessing that if Tiger is on the leaderboard in a major or two Mr. Nicklaus will be watching and watching with interest.

Kind of a non-story but you'd think Jack who claims to want to see the game grow would be a little bit more supportive of Tiger given his potential impact on the game going forward.

Tiger on leader board to win his 18th major.  Mr. N., might take a gander...  Jack has never been a real warm and fuzzy guy.  Warmer and fuzzier than Tiger but still....can't really say he's a people person.  Can you imagine Tiger when he's Jack's age?  LOL

So Tiger is responsible for yelling and the mashed potato yelling.That is quite a stretch to blame that on Tiger and Jack said he does not watch any golfer anymore.
This also does not have anything to do about being a liberal or conservative.The thread should have been locked after that comment,this is a golf site and should not be turned into a left or right talking points.

Disrespect?  Honesty?  No big deal? Media stirring the pot?

Who is stirring the pot here?

Article speaks for itself, put the remarks in context.  Clearly not disrespect, no reason to raise that question. Edit:  looks like you weren't meaning to raise that question.

Jack has said a zillion times he watches little if any golf and takes little interest in the game any more, been that way for a long time - life is about the grandkids, other business things, fishing, you name it.

No surprise he isn't earmarking the TV Guide if Tiger happens to be playing.

Guys tells the truth, folks on here make snide remarks.  And if he said he was hanging on every shot, press would be all over him every time Tiger played. Can't win, but always classy, period.

No surprise he isn't earmarking the TV Guide if Tiger happens to be playing.

Guys tells the truth, folks on here make snide remarks.  And if he said he was hanging on every shot, press would be all over him every time Tiger played. Can't win, but always classy, period.

But why does he desperately want to dial back the ball, if he says:

"...I don't watch anybody play golf." ?
