Lesson for Rookies: Don't Call Tiger Out
By mustang6560 on 2/15/11
Tour veteran Scott Stalling blogs for BNET in addition to his golf. And he offered Brendan Steele some advice and all rookies for that matter. PGA Tour rookie handbook section A, lesson 1: "Don't ever, EVER call out a veteran player on tour. Especially Tiger Woods".

To refresh your memory, Brendan Steele told SI he didn't think Tiger "gave it everything" at Torrey Pines at the Farmers Insurance Open. The media ate that up and produced several stories about it. Here's what Scott had to say about it:
Now I know Brendan and I have no doubt that he meant no ill will toward Tiger. But it’s a good lesson for all of us rookies playing on the PGA Tour for the first time.

Unlike the lower level events in golf where guys are used to working hard and not getting a whole lot of attention from the press, on the PGA Tour the players are the event. What happened with Brendan couldn’t be a clearer example of that.
Whoa Mr. Bigtime Rookie Man, who do you think you are offering your opinion on TW?

Maybe Brendan was just trying to get some attention or simply he made those remarks in error. But I totally agree with Scott - never question the work ethic of major tour players.
