Golfers react to Woods' news conference

By Brian Entin - email
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -Golfers at Southbridge Golf Club were practicing for their own weekend golf tournament on Monday.

But that's not what they were talking about. Most conversations were about Tiger Woods' press conference.

Golfer Jack Green wasn't near a television, so he listened to the news conference on the radio. "As a human I think everyone makes mistakes. So as long as he rights his wrongs and gets his act together with his family, then he is okay in my book, " Green said.

All the golfers WTOC spoke with on Monday said they forgive Tiger, but they aren't necessarily okay with Tiger being a role model.

"Being able to hit a ball or carry a large weight or run really fast doesn't necessarily make you a good human being," Frank Aliffi said.

Golfers say they are anxious to see how Tiger Wood's performs in the coming week.
