During their usual post-round banter as they wrapped up Day 2 at the Plantation Course at Kapalua, Tilghman and cohort Nick Faldo discussed young players who could possibly challenge Tiger. Faldo, ever the joker, said perhaps the youngsters should "gang up (on Tiger) for a while." The pair laughed a bit before Tilghman responded by saying, "Lynch him in a back alley." The pair chuckled awkwardly before moving on.
The Golf Channel said it received a limited number of complaints regarding the comment.
Tilghman, realizing her faux pas. "I've reached out to Tiger to make an apology, and I've done the same with our viewers," Tilghman said.
Attempts to reach Woods or his agent, Mark Steinberg of IMG, were unsuccessful. A Golf Channel spokesman said no disciplinary action is planned, "other than the mistake she made is regrettable and an extreme learning experience for her."
Well looks like black people and Nooses are not completely out of the American mind yet.
You know I have to wonder what reallly makes some one that stupid.
Where in this idiot's brain did she get the idea that this was alright to say out in public let alone TV?
Way to start off the New Year.
