  • I can't believe that golfers throw their clubs.

  • Do mushroom hunters throw mushrooms?

  • I sure hope harpists and violinists don't throw their instruments.

    Chris Pruett's response:

    I wonder if golfers take their 9 iron to the woods to hunt mushrooms? It could be some good practice? Come to think of it, I'm usually in the woods while playing golf so I may hunt for some mushrooms while I'm there!

    Thanks for reading,


  • Marines throw hand grenades. Sailors have been known to use profanity. Unlike Johnny Miller,

    Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson grew up in career military families (U.S. Army & U.S. Navy respectively). Tiger was exposed early to a far different environment than Mr. Miller has ever known; and, we are all better for it.

    It ain't a perfect World. Tiger Woods is not perfect. Arnold Palmer used to smoke like a chimney and advertise tobacco for profit. Where was his Father when he was advocating addiction?

    Johnny Miller is no Saint. I'm sure there are some skeletons in his closet also. And, he sure was no Tiger Woods on the golf course.

  • Johnny Miller would be well advised to bite his tongue when criticizing Tiger. Without Tiger, Johnny would have no bread to butter with his silver spoon. Mr. Miller is at best observatively crass, and at worst annoying and condescending.

  • I don't care for Tiger's foul language, but I still highly enjoy watching him play. The world has had far more visibility of his maturing than it has had of mine, and for that I'm grateful.

    If it weren't for occasional outbursts of temper, I'd have some serious doubts as to whether he was actually human.

  • If i had a good 9 iron, since i can't play golf i would probably use it as a walking stick to hunt mushrooms. I have thrown a shroom or two in my time, but i always feel bad afterwords. As far as golfers throwing tantrum? everybody has a breaking point and we are all human. We just don't get our fits televised.
