CBS Jim Nantz Blasts Tiger Woods Profanity, Swear Word Tantrums at Masters 2010
The voice of the Masters on CBS, Jim Nantz was critical of Tiger Woods and the language the golfer used during his comeback at the Masters 2010 tournament.
While Jim Nantz had high praise for Phil Mickelson's incredible Master's victory, his words for Tiger Woods were far more critical during an interview with Mike Francesca of WFAN.
If I said what he said on the air, I would be fired. I read in the USA Today and it was called “mild language.” Someone on my broadcast dismissed it as him having a camera in his face. Well, guess what? Phil Mickelson had a camera in his face all week and did you even hear him come close to approaching that? He didn’t hit every shot the way he wanted. Have you ever heard Arnold Palmer or Jack Nicklaus use that kind of language? What are the parameters between what’s right or wrong?"
To be fair the CBS camera (see video) caught Tiger Woods saying "You Suck, God Dammit." but as Nantz indicated in his quote the Masters 2010 champion did not use such language Jim Nantz said Tiger Woods profanity laced tirade would no bother him so much except Tiger had pledged to clean up his act but clearly didn't.
Let's see how Tiger Woods swing and swear words hold up at June's U.S. Open at Pebble Beach.
