Better choices of words have been made.
Golf Channel announcer Kelly Tilghman is facing heavy criticism for saying that the world’s up-and-coming golfers should “lynch Tiger Woods in a back alley” during a Friday broadcast of the PGA Tour’s opening event of 2008.
Presumably, she meant that in a figurative sense, since Tiger Woods wins every tournament and is thus the bane of every other golfer’s existence.
But still, not the smartest move by Kelly Tilghman, a 1991 Duke graduate and former college golf standout who made history in becoming the sport’s first full-time female TV announcer. People are asking: Should she be fired over this?
Kelly Tilghman has since apologized to Tiger Woods publicly and personally.
Upset, the announcer said that “I used some poorly chosen words… “I have known Tiger Woods for 12 years and I have apologized directly to him.”
Dumb as it was, maybe this incident can simply blow over. Just don’t comment on the fake Elin Nordegren nude pics, Kelly. Take our advice on this one.
