The reaction throughout the golf world over Tiger Woods‘ alleged alternative lifestyle has been mostly muted, until now.
But when outed by the Sentinel over the changes, we got yet another opposite day quote for the obvious disassociation with Woods.
Tournament director Scott Wellington said the banner was updated two weeks ago. The redesign was “not necessarily” prompted by Woods’ recent infidelity scandal.
“We are always changing the Web site and keeping it fresh,” Wellington said. “[Woods] is our defending champion, and that’s not going to change.”
Not necessarily? Does that mean the tournament director doesn’t know the ultimate reason for the change?
Reminds me of Tag Heuer reps denying they pulled billboards of Woods in Australia because of bad publicity, then a week later announcing they were dropping Woods.
The opposite day hedges are going to cease if we get more material evidence of affairs or other questionable lifestyle decisions of Woods. And I don’t know too many people who don’t think that’s a possibility.
