Really? This is the headline? Wow. The movie is Chinese, but whatever...they all look the same, right?

Tiger's putter failed him today. Also Yang has ice water in his veins. Great round to watch

Actually, this headline makes sense. Tiger did a lot of crouching today as his putts sailed by lip after lip and as for the dragon, who would have thought Y. E. Yang could hang, let alone beat Tiger.

Sick shot on 14. The approach on 18 was terrific.

I am normally never a big golf watcher but I lazed around and watched this round today.

It was amazing.

I believe he is more than that actually. He is more Chinese than he is African, yet for some reason he is a "black golfer".
 
2009-08-17 01:08:27 AM
My bad, you are right. he is only a qtr Chinese...Earl is only half African so tiger is only a quarter black too. His mother is a qtr Chinese and 50% Thai, which makes Tiger far more of Asian decent than he is of African decent.

You meant to say he is an attractive and sucessful afro-asian-american right? Right?

watching Harrington shoot that quintuple-bogey 8 was painful, as it reminded me of my own game heh.

Tiger's 1/4 Chinese, 1/4 Thai, 1/4 African American, 1/8 Native American, and 1/8 Dutch. Pretty much everyone is fighting over lineage rights on him, besides the WASP's.

For once, someone out-tiger'd Tiger. Yang nailed that really nice chip on 14, and I think it rattled Tiger. Yang was the first guy to not crumple under Tiger's gaze.

That's just it...He is 1/4 African. 1/2 Asian (if Africa all gets lumped together than so does Asia)...So why is he considered a black golfer and not an Asian golfer has always been my question.

Hey, Yang or whatever your name is.
You come to my country, and you take [the PGA's money], and you don't even have the grace to speak my language . . .

Because AMerica is only black and white, the rest of the people are just stealing America's money and sending it back to their motherland.

funny but if America didnt have all the in between people this country would go to shiat! Who is gonna mow our lawns, pick our fruits and vegetables, do our dry cleaning or clean our toilets. Not whites or blacks...whites are too good for that and blacks well we just wont go there.

I can't imagine the frustration Tiger must have felt missing so many putts by so little. This easily could have been a runaway win by 5 or 6 strokes.

Glad Tiger lost. Sick of golf announcers sucking his dack every two seconds. Seriously, stop gushing over him - IT'S EMBARRASSING!
 
2009-08-17 08:41:48 AM
Such a great match. Yangs chip in eagle at 14, and approach shot at 18 won this tournament.

Talk about handling pressure, I guess the fact that he was in the S. Korean military helped...

Farker Lewis Can't Lose: Seriously, stop gushing over him

Yeah, 'cause he sucks. He's three wins away from passing Jack Nicklaus for #2 all-time, and four majors away from tying the all-time majors record. And he's 33, which is just about when most golfers hit the prime of their career.

Having said that, all credit to Yang. That 3-hybrid into 18 was one of the best clutch golf shots I've ever seen. Doing it while paired with Tiger in the final round of a major makes it even more epic.

Also, who would be our doctors or run our gas stations? Both fields are slowly being dominated by east asians.

Then stop entertaining it. The media LOVES their stereotypes; this is nothing new. But we are not the farking media, so why'd you have to go there?

srhp29, you were the first one in this thread to mention he's a "black golfer". So at least in this thread, people will only talk about race as long as you keep it up.

The only people making a big deal out of his race are people making a big deal out of his race. You can be one of them or not, and right now, you are. By choice. So ending the discussion of Tiger being a "black" golfer will mercifully go away as soon as you let it go. Pretty much everyone else was talking about the game.

I've always considered him an American player.

How bout this. I will discuss what I want to discuss and you do the same. Agreed? Who the F are you anyway?

Tiger is widely, not by me, and pretty much exclusively considered a black golfer. I didn't make it up. the discussion of his race became a part of the thread. if you don't like it STFU up GMAS.

I honestly haven't experienced this rampaging world-wide celebration of his singular blackness.

No one of consequence; I'm just pointing out you seem to have an issue with Tiger being called a "black" golfer when you're the only one who brought it up. I mean, it's a free country and all and I really ought to GBTW myself, but I'm not quite so bored that I decided to go on-line just to have an argument with myself.

Of course I realize it, and SO DOES EVERYONE IN THE WORLD!!!1

Even you must realize that these announcers act like smitten schoolgirls when they can't go 1 minute without bobbing up and down on his cawk.

He's the best, possibly ever, and I respect his game. Unfortunately, the announcers have almost ruined my respect for the guy because they're making me hate hearing about him. Everyone knows how good he is - it's no secret. Do they think that someone is watching who never heard about TIger Woods and they somehow have to clue that person in on how great he is?

I'd be embarrassed if I were those announcers. Enough is enough.
 
2009-08-17 11:29:45 AM
....

Like, when someone else wears red shirt on Sunday, they're all like "ZOMG, SOMEONE ELSE IS WEARING A RED SHIRT!"

Like Tiger Woods is the only one who is ALLOWED to wear a red shirt on Sunday? A couple of weeks ago, someone had a little red on their shirt and that Feherty dooshebag said "He wouldn't wear that red shirt on purpose, would he?"

/how dare they do anything that would upset the oft-dacksucked Tiger!!

Absolutely right - I root for anyone to win but Tiger, and it's not his fault.

Unrelated question - I didn't see the shot in question, but today's paper mentioned when Harrington was having his meltdown he nearly hit his playing partner with a shot (I'm sure it wasn't that close).

But what is the ruling if you should strike a player with a shot? Is there a penalty, or is the humiliation enough?

After he hit it in the water he had to go back to the drop zone. He pulled the shiat out of that shot and almost got his playing partner (Stenson? I can't remember) in the head. The guy ducked out of the way, but it was hard to tell if that was necessary.

Yes, it was that close to hitting his playing partner. Missed his skull by a couple feet tops.

If you hit your playing partner with a ball, you play it as it lies, just like if you hit a member of the gallery.

The thing I hate about the Tiger love fest is it's disrespectful to other golfers. I don't mean when he's winning a tournament, I mean when he's not. There are 5 people ahead of him, but they give all the attention to Tiger.

Dude dominate like that are your in the news.

I don't like golf, but I remember ESPN pretty much on it's knees with a bunch of Vijay Singh in it's mouth when it looked like him and Mickelson or whatever was giving Tiger a run for his money.
