How many times is the PGA tour going to allow Tiger Woods to cheat in a golf tournament and not be disqualified? He clearly takes advantage of the rules at times and his character comes into question a lot.

Golf is a game of honor and Woods has proven himself less than honorable both on and off the golf course. He gets caught cheating more than any other top ranked golfer in PGA history and he doesn’t get disqualified.

He latest event comes at the BMW championship. Woods moved the ball on his first hole and failed to call the penalty on himself.  He didn’t learn of the 2 stroke penalty until he was in the scoring tent.

Why is that? Woods had played the game of golf long enough to know if he moved the ball or not. His eyes certainly are good enough to see if he moved the ball or not. Woods is playing stupid.

He tries to act as if he doesn’t know if he moved the ball or not when it was him who moved the ball. The incident happened when Woods hit his second shot over the green on the first hole he was playing.

He hit the ball into the trees behind the first green and a film crew who was filming for PGA entertainment captures the ball moving on video that they sent into the PGA.

Now, if they could see the ball being moved, how does this escape Tiger Woods? The guy surely could see whether the ball moved.

After the PGA informed Woods of the 2 stoke penalty, he actually became mad about it. He stormed out of the scoring room and wouldn’t even talk to reporters.

How long is the PGA going to continue to cut him this kind of slack. Woods clearly knew whether or not the ball moved. The PGA has disqualified others in the past for signing an incorrect scorecard, why won’t they do the same for Woods?

It all comes down to television viewers, when Woods is playing, the PGA has a higher viewership. The man has no honor. We have seen it in his personal life and we have seen it on the golf course.

Golf is supposed to be a game of honor, over the years we have seen other great players asses themselves penalties and we have yet to see Woods do that. It is time the PGA does the right thing and that would include a disqualification of Tiger Woods.
