Tiger temper: Woods subject to discipline for kicking his club
AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) ' Tiger Woods is subject to discipline by the PGA Tour for kicking his golf club after a poor shot at the Masters.
Whether he is fined is not likely to be known. The PGA Tour does not comment on discipline.
Woods, after a bad miss with a 4-iron into the 15th hole on Friday, hit a poor tee shot with a 9-iron on the par-3 16th. He let the club fall from his hands, then turned and kicked it 15 yards.
According to tour policy, players can be disciplined for conduct unbecoming a professional even in tournaments that are co-sponsored or approved by the PGA Tour.
The tour is so secret about its discipline than when John Daly once told The Associated Press he had been suspended for six months, the tour still would not confirm it.
