FanDuel - WFBC

Tiger's Roar: The world number one was back to winning ways at the weekend. He let it rip [video] on the back nine (allegedly, although CBS denies it), but it wasn't the first time. How do his farts rate compared to Jack's?

The laws of physics state that whenever you have several thousand over-Screwdrivered Buick owners yelling "GET IN THE HOLE" following every stroke from tee to green, eventually there has to be a reactionary movement of hot air in the opposite direction.

I think what CBS recorded was the release of the dying breaths of the competition.

This only serves to bolster the whining from the anti-Tiger crowd who constantly complain that Woods "could fart and it would be front-page news!".

I hope he didn't follow through.

Obviously the Beaver and I think alike, I HATE those idiots yelling "Get in the Hole" and am willing to bet the players do, too. Anyone yelling that should be shown to the gate and given a swift kick in the ass !!!

Football players fart. Baseball players fart. Hockey players fart. Basketball players fart.

Golfers have flatulence.

One, I'm glad Tiger laughed, shows he enjoys fart humor!

Two, anyone that yells "Get in the hole", or "It's in the hole", or anything remotely like that, on a tee shot should be fed to the alligators living on the golf courses in Florida...the golfers would be happy, the alligators would be happy, and I'd be happy.

If they yell those phrases on a shot that actually has a better than 70% chance of going in the hole, and they should only be shot.

Just to restore some of the shine to Tiger's rep:

You'll notice in both videos that none of the other golfers or caddies back away from him after his pants growler. Further proof that his gas is devoid of malodorous quality.

"Devoid of malodorous quality"------yeah, and it didn't stink, either (with apologies to Curly, my favorite stooge). Nyuk Nyuk

several thousand over-Screwdrivered Buick owners

It appears that this was the last year for that to be an issue, as Buick has ended it's 50 year sponsorship of the PGA.

Did they upgrade his firmware? Or is that a bug in the software, like deja vu in the Matrix?

And Tiger effervesces

Maybe Tiger needs to drink some of that whiskey Russian fans are using to ward off Swine flu?
