Martin Kaymer rips people for kicking Tiger Woods while he's already down
The former U.S. Open and PGA Championship winner stood up for Big Cat
Two-time major winner Martin Kaymer hopped on Twitter this week to defend Tiger Woods following his DUI arrest in Florida on Monday.over the last week on social media and beyond, and Kaymer felt as if he needed to stick up for someone who has given so much to athletes and fans all over the world for the last two decades.
"There are so many comments, so many opinions," Kaymer said. "They are so unfair and very disrespectful in my opinion. Everybody who is involved in golf was changed by his legacy, by his play, by so many things that he has done. He brought cultures together. He made races -- African Americans -- feel more comfortable to play golf. He inspired kids, teenagers. He inspired all of us.
"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 be so nasty? Why don't you try to do the opposite and help him now the way he inspired us?
"He has a huge impact. My wish would be, stop being so nasty. Try to help. We all want to see him be happier and hopefully one day to see him play golf again. That's my only wish. Be kind and all the best from me."
