Azinger terms Tiger Woods club-kicking tantrum at Augusta Masters 'embarrassment'

April 10, 2012 - Washington

Former Ryder Cup captain Paul Azinger has slammed iger Woods' club-kicking antics at the Augusta Masters as 'an embarrassment to the game.'

"Tiger's antics this week were an embarrassment to the game, to the membership at Augusta. I was really disappointed to see him carry on that way," The New York Daily News quoted Azinger, as saying.

"He's not trying to endear himself to anybody. And after he won Bay Hill I thought, 'here we go again, this is going to be Tiger just kicking butt and taking names.' I don't know. I thought he acted like the south end of a northbound mule," he added.

Paul Azinger, who has always been positive on Woods, was peaking to SiriusXM's Mad Dog Radio channel.

He also criticized Woods' game.

"I think his brain is full of swing thoughts, not swing feelings. He thinks he needs to know it all so he can fix what's wrong, but that's not what happened here," he said.

When it started to go off he didn't have a go-to shot, there was nothing he could do. I can't compare my career to Tiger Woods' career for sure, but I'll say this, in the 28 years I've played golf for a living I've never been as lost as he looked out there," he added.
