Martin Kaymer has seen the reaction to Tiger Woods’ DUI arrest and the comments made this week after footage of the police giving him a field sobriety test was released.
And he thinks people are being “unfair” and “disrespectful” to the golf legend.
Kaymer posted a two-minute Twitter video in which he said he’s been bothered by the way Woods has been treated, that he did so much for the game of golf and inspired so many. So he’s disturbed to see the nastiness directed toward Woods:
His message, ultimately:
“Why [are you] being so nasty? Why don’t you try to do the opposite and help him now, the way he inspired us? That’s why we are where we are now. That’s why we can have what we have. So he has a huge impact and my wish would be just stop being so nasty, try to help and we all want to see him be happier and hopefully one day, he can play golf again. That’s my only wish.”
Kaymer’s comments echo those of Jack Nicklaus, who said of Woods, “I think he needs all our help” before his Memorial Tournament this week.
