Martin Kaymer Supports Tiger

Martin Kaymer has come to Tiger’s defense as the first playing pro to do-so publicly since this week’s incident. Considering the legality involved and the potential public danger of the situation, it’s understandably tough for players to share their true opinions. Some may empathize, knowing Woods’ troubles over the last decade and others may look strictly at the poor decision at-hand. Kaymer, however, elegantly left the facts aside and showed his support for Tiger Woods the golfer and friend.

“Yes, he’s in the public eye, he’s in the spotlight a lot, so of course people will talk about him, but why (are they) so nasty? Why don’t you try to do the opposite and help him now, the way he inspired us?”

Hopefully other players will come out and show their respect for the man who changed the game and we hope that Tiger feels the support for our tight-knit community rather than feel shunned.
