SUCK IT UP:

Westwood points finger at Azinger (BBC, 9/22/08)

Europe's Lee Westwood has blamed United States captain Paul Azinger for the "shameful" behaviour of some of the crowd at the Ryder Cup in Valhalla.

Westwood pinpointed Azinger's rallying call, in which he urged fans to cheer missed Europeans putts, as the reason for some of the unsavoury scenes.

"Some people don't know the difference between supporting their team and abusing the opposition," he said.


For all the grief A-rod takes, when he has an at-bat or a grounder and the game is on the line there are 50,000 people screaming at him. But in the country club sports--golf and tennis--one peep and the player has a nervous breakdown.
