It was bad enough when Golf Channel broadcaster Kelly Tilghman recently suggested that other golfers should â€œlynchâ€ Tiger Woods in a back alley. She was suspended for two weeks and apologized to Woods for the inflammatory comment.
But Dave Seanor, the editor of Golfweek, was replaced Friday after the magazine ran this over-the-top cover picture about the flap, showing a swinging noose.
PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem blasted the image, calling it â€œoutrageous and irresponsibleâ€ and smacking of â€œtabloid journalism.â€
Clearly, many readers agreed. Who knew golf was so controversial?
