I have seen Tiger Woods quite a few times and appreciate his ability with the golf ball but really dislike him as a human being. He seems so arrogant with the public. You would think that he could sign a few autographs and wave back to a few fans. He basically ignores his playing partners, the fans, and the other caddies. People will yell, Tiger, Tiger!! but he acts like they are not there. This is during practice rounds. Cant he remember why he is at the tournament? Loosen up Tiger!

I guess maybe all this attention has gone to his head.

the ones who remain humble and appreciative of other human beings around them are the true class acts.

He's probably just concentrating on his golf game and while it seems like he's not being very fan friendly, you must still remember he is "at work" if you will. Yeah, I'd kill to be paid to play golf too instead of pay to play golf, but you have to understand where he is coming from.

I'm a person who likes to go down and try to get close to the athletes and get autographs and such but I understand that sometimes they have things to concentrate on. Some are more fan friendly than others, but I don't know that it's fair to say they are a jerk because they won't wave, pose for pictures, or sign autographs while they are trying to concentrate on their job. I know where you're coming from too, but I'm also trying to see where guys like him are coming from.

Now if you happen to run into someone like that out in public or something and they act like a jerk, then maybe it would be ok to call them out on it. I'm sure it sometimes gets old having people go crazy every place you go, but that's part of it IMO.

I agree with that too, but see my other post above.

When I did security for professional footballers (soccer) they generally only signed autographs before heading into the stadium and leaving the satdium.

During training sessions again, they did the above but during one break they signed autographs.

Perhaps one of the reasons that he is so good is that he shuts out everything, including the fans, when he is on the course. The point is to score the lowest, not to please the fans. Concentration is the deciding factor between the star and the also-rans.

Scoring the lowest does please the fans :P
My post basically said what you said. There is a time and a place for autographs.
