"Given our reputation in our sport, how honorable our sport is and always has been and will continue to be, I think that the penalty has got to be somewhat significant," Woods said in a conference call to announce the field for his Target World Challenge.
"I think it would be very disappointing if it did happen," he said. "I think that person's reputation would be obviously damaged pretty significantly."
Woods could have been a bit less vague in my opinion.
I'm new to golf and my progress is slow, but one thing that stands out in my study of the game is that golf is a game of honor and self-regulation.
Anyone who breaks the code of honor that has been so integral to the game for so long should in my humble opinion be banned from the game.
