An Affair is Very Public,


except when it’s private.

Shorter NYT: the Chairman of the prestigious country club located in Georgia that somehow still doesn’t admit women in the year 2010 rebuked some guy for disrespecting women rather than being a role model for our children and grandchildren.

Slightly longer:

Payne began his remarks with a list of accomplishments and acknowledgments associated with the upcoming tournament, then suddenly mentioned Woods. He said Woods’s golf game and work ethic were worthy of comparison to Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Bobby Jones, but he quickly added that Woods had forgotten that with “fame and fortune comes responsibility, not invisibility.” He called Woods’s behavior “egregious” and added, “Our hero did not live up to the expectations of the role model we saw for our children.”

And later in the article . . .

” ‘Is there a way forward?’ he asked, referring to Woods’s future. ‘I hope yes.’ ”

Of course, at the end of the article, it’s clear that there isn’t a way forward for the country club itself, when said chairman points out that regarding the membership issue, it’s a private affair. “As you know, that is subject to the private deliberations of the members.”

  • What I’m wondering is how many private conversations among golf elites have racialized Tiger Woods’ affairs, longing for the days where blacks were only caddies.

    If Tiger’s behavior so offended the delicate sensibilities of the Augusta National members, they always could have refused to extend an invitation to their little tournament to him.

    That club admitted like one black guy in 1990 just to pro forma integrate, so they can pretty much STFU on any moral matter.

    btw, ever notice those jumpsuits the caddies have to wear at the Masters? They pretty much just wear ordinary golf clothes at the other majors, befitting their status as quasi-coaches to the pro golfers. But at the Masters they have to wear livery. Funny that.

    Spare a sympathetic thought for the Augusta National Unhinged Schmucks (ANUS). How they must feel, what with the Kenyan Usurper living in their house and the Golfing Mandingo out collecting all their wimmen. Please mail your contributions to [email protected].
