    Quite frankly, the blow up with Tiger was the best thing that could have happened to his career.  He's not playing regularly on the PGA Tour, mostly playing on the European Tour (which pays less) and while he has played better the past two years, he is clearly not the player he once was.  

    So... let's pick a fight with the most popular player in golf, make a racist comment (but hopefully not so racist that your sponsors will drop you), apologize (or if they do drop you, work hard to "atone" a la Tiger Woods post-sex scandal and regain sponsors) and return to relevance.  I've worked in the industry and seen this play more times than I can count.

    Whether he believes it or not is not the point, the point is that he said it and needs to be held accountable for it.
