Pro Golfer Tom Watson: Tiger Woods Needs to Clean Up His Act

Longtime pro golfer Tom Watson offers up his opinion of fellow athlete Tiger Woods, telling USA Today he thinks Tiger needs to own up to his actions on and off the golf course.

"I'll let the cat out of the bag," Watson told the newspaper while attending the Dubai Desert Classic. "Tiger has to take ownership of what he has done. He must get his personal life in order. I think that's what he's trying to do. And when he comes back he has to show some humility to the public."

Watson, 60, said that his experience with Woods on the green was that he exemplified some bad manners. He hopes this will change when the pro golfer returns to the sport in April. "I feel that he has not carried the same stature that other great players that have come along like Jack (Nicklaus), Arnold (Palmer), Byron Nelson, the Hogans, in the sense that there was language and club throwing on the golf course," Watson explained.
