Watson: Woods must clean up on-course act too

Although the criticism in golf circles over the two months since Tiger Woods began his spiral into exile has been fairly tame and downright limited in many regards, there have been a few salvos fired across the bow of the No. 1 golfer.

Jesper Parnevik, Colin Montgomerie and former coach Butch Harmon each have offered frank opinions on the fallout from the Woods scandal. The latest to join the choir, albeit with reasoned tones and a complete lack of hysteria, is Hall of Famer Tom Watson.

Watson, in an intervierw with an NBC affiliate in his hometown of Kansas City, said this week that he believes Woods not only needs to put his personal life on a fast fix-it list, he needs to rein in his outbursts on the golf course.

Over the past year, Woods' anger-fueled antics probaby reached a professional nadir, with two publicized incidents wherein thrown clubs wound up in hazards or the gallery.

"His swearing and his club throwing, that should end. That's not part of what we want to project as far as a professional golf tour is concerned," Watson said in the interview.
