Man someone dislikes Tiger? All he ever does is good things and winning. He doesn't seem like the type of person you can hate.

I don't like Vijay Singh too much. He seems like a sexist, especially when he refuses to play rather then teaming up with a woman....

What makes you say his ego is too big?

I mean yes he knows he is the best and plays like he should win everytime, but isn't that what people should do? Just cause he wants to win and thinks he should win every match doesn't make him a bad person. If he doesn't win every match he has to hear how he is in a slump on the media.

I think all star players should have a little ego, a little swagger to them.

I'll be honest. I don't like Phil Mickelson. I think his facial expressions and his sort of not being able to finish things off make my image of him bad. i don't really like vijay's personality, but Phil doesn't seem all that great to me. He may have the talent, but he doesn't have the kind of killer attitude I'd like to see in a sports idol. Tiger is the man.

I guess I was a little too negative then. Although Tiger is a great player and has inspired many golfing players. I think over time his ego has become a little big for himself.
I imagine it would be hard to stay humble when you're the best golfer in the world right now, probably ever.....:rolleyes: I don't even look at him as being egotistical. Egotistical is hitting a wedge on a par 3 that you normally have trouble reaching in 2 just because your buddies are hitting wedges. Egotistical is blaming everything around you but yourself for a bad shot. Knowing inside you that you're going to win and having the confidence in yourself to pull off any shot your imaginations comes up with is NOT egotistical.

P.S. I agree with the comment about Daly. Even worse, now he's got that TV show on the golf channel.:confused:

How can you not like Tiger Woods?!? Tiger is awesome.

I would have to say Sergio Garcia. I think he gets way too much attention; in my opinion he isn't very good. Everyone thinks he is really good but he has never really had a "great" year like Tiger has had.

Hes too popular for his own good.Too many expectations.

If I say Tiger Woods it would be out of jealousy because of his success in the game of golf. He is a great player and in my view he has turned more Hollywood worried more about his character then the game of golf. When Tiger stepped on the scene he wanted to be the best and he was doing good and when he hit his goal I think he began to treat golf as a job. I mean how many of us after work think to ourselves man if I would of only gave 100 percent instead of 70 percent. I just think it is a job and like many other people we hate our jobs.

I don't like Tiger Woods at all. It isn't because of his golfing, he is a GREAT golfer, one of the best ever, but rather his personality. He is completely liberal, and claims to not be african-american. He made his "own race". What a joke. I will never like Tiger, although I think he is a great golfer.

I don't like his attitude. Last year, when he didn't wait for his playing partner, Ben Crane, because Ben was playing too slow, to me that was completely classless. He also has a sourpuss look on his face at all times it seems.

I used to think Tiger was arrogant, but I think it was just immaturity (this is back when he was pretty young). Now, I think he handles himself very well and is a good ambassador to the game.

what's wrong with john daly?

everyone on tour loves him. behind tiger and possibly phil he's the biggest draw in golf. 99% of the fans love him

is it because he's been honest with the things that have gone on with him off the course?

you've never had any personal problems? lucky for you and me and joe blow next door the media doesn't care what happens to us. unfortunately for Daly every time anything remotely bad happens to him on and off the course the media jump all over it.

It has to be woods, his ego and the way he acts on a course by spitting his dummy out everytime something goes wrong as to make him my least liked golfer.
I agree, a couple years ago, he hit his drive behind a big rock and then he had a lot of guys move it for him since he could not(I forget what rule it is but the one where "you" can move something in your way) eversince I have not had much respect for the guy, he is a good player though by all means.

jeez you sound easy to please. :rolleyes: because a guy got some fans to move something for him you lost all respect for him? don't you think that's a little overboard?
