Tiger Woods’ DUI has sent shockwaves throughout the golf world. From everyday golfers to the world’s best players, the videos and images stemming from Woods’ arrest have caused nearly everyone to have a reaction and opinion.
One such person who wasn’t afraid to let their feelings be known was former World No. 1 Martin Kaymer. The 32-year-old two-time major winner sprung to Tiger’s defense in a heartfelt Twitter video.
“Obviously a lot of people know what happened to Tiger Woods the last few days, few weeks,” Kaymer said. “There’s so many comments, so many opinions. They are so unfair and so disrespectful, in my opinion.
“He inspired kids, teenagers; he inspired all of us,” Kaymer said. “I find it so nasty that people just kick him while he’s already on the floor, and at the end of the day it’s just using someone else for your own sadness. Yes, he’s in the public eye, he’s in the spotlight a lot, so of course people will talk about him.
“But why so nasty? Why don’t you try to do the opposite and help him now in the way he inspired us?”
