Dream Merchant... no wasn't for you, was for everyone.
However after reading more of what you wrote I will say you have no clue on what you are talking about with all your appeals and everything else. Seriously, you have no idea.
Brah, read what you have been saying because you actually make no sense in all those words and in all those words you absolutely have no clue on it all. I showed the kids, the junior golfers from Singapore Golf Association your posts and they are laughing at you. One of them even laughed and said "Yeah, maybe Tiger can ask for mulligan... how is he supposed to appeal?"
You name me five instances where a golfer replayed his swing in a major tournament, or in fact even one instance of a golfer who got to swing again because of "appealing" or because "it was the organizers fault by not telling people no pics" and I'll show you tons more where a golfer did not get to swing over because of a photog. Until then, the junior golfers are laffing your "logic" and "knowledge." In fact I may even quote you for an upcoming article in a magazine regarding this incident. I'm sure the reader's would want a good laugh.
Maybe it'll be like this:
One person's response to the Tiger's growll;
"It's the organisers' who want the spectators ticket money whose at fault...If a recourse for appeal is not in place, and assuming that such high-profile events are probably super widely recorded and documented, and such distractions are evidenced, since they are multi-million dollar events with intensive media coverage, then it might be an issue that needs to be addressed by the powers that be, assuming that the game at the pro level is supposed to be played in absolute silence and serenity." I suppose DM does not know what is acceptable ambient noise, nor does he have any idea on so called "appealing."
Furthermore, Dream Merchant goes on to say,"top and pro level athletes are supposed to delve quite deeply into very rigorous mental training with the aid of gazillions of dollars pumped into sports psychology and such, and a large part of the result is supposed to involve handling stress and less than ideal conditions, distractions, intentional or not, as well as upsets of any sort." Well thank you DM. It's good of you to let us all know how pros are supposed to train, I guess you played on the PGA yourself?
In conclusion he feels, "unless there were like 5 or 10 or more people firing their noisy DSLRs all at the same time when Woods was on the upswing, then Woods' losing his momentum or focus just at that point when he should have been fully 'in his zone' might have been a simple failure in his mental game, as well as the arrangements, security and logistics on the part of the organisers. If it was just one inconsiderate person with a machine-gun DSLR, and perhaps a few others with much less noisy PnS, than all the more shame on Woods' mental game and lack of ability to cope." Thanks again DM, we'll take your highly credible analysis of Tiger Woods since you seem to have an answer for everything except for one..., why not just follow the basic rules and none of this would happen. Golfers who read something like this would first be laughing, then be asking who the hell is this guy. And I would get fired for putting out rubbish from a person who obviously knows nothing. He has a lot to say, but nothing in those words.
One of the kids even told me,"This guy only want to talk lah, he doesn't know." So I guess I'll end it with this kid's analysis of Dream Merchant was right "lah."
Fark, if this kid won't even waste any time with what you have to say, then neither will I after this. Sometimes we gotta learn from our youth
One thing, just tell me you are making 3.7 million salary a year and I'll understand where and how you get your logic.
