SILENCING THE HATERS IF there is one thing social media has taught us it is how much hate people have in their hearts. I was watching the final round of the Valspar Championship and keeping an eye on Twitter at the same time. I couldn’t believe how many people were willing Corey Connors, Paul Casey and a few others to lose or play badly just so Tiger Woods could win. Then there were the Tiger haters, perhaps in greater numbers, wanting him to lose. It’s no wonder that so many elite sportsmen and women these days suffer from mental health issues. If they followed everything that was said about them on Twitter or other social media sites they would start to have problems. I’d like to tell the keyboard haters to pull their heads in but it will do no good anyway. Thankfully, Tiger silenced the haters, and the doubters, by finishing second. He’s well and truly back and the game is all the better for it. Tony Chun Via email HOW GOOD IS GOLF? TO steal a line from Andrew Daddo...”how good is golf?” It was so good to see Tiger Woods back in contention over the weekend. What a great comeback from him. As someone who has had spinal fusion surgery, I can tell you it would be really hard for him to do what he’s doing ... even to just get to the 1st tee for every round. I really hope he stays healthy and can win a few more majors. Devoted Tiger Fan Via email The Big Q HAVE YOUR SAY ON THE GAME YOU LOVE THIS WEEK'S POLL WHAT'S YOUR VIEW?
