Last Sunday Tiger Woods won a golf tournament when his opponent, Padraig Harrington, triple-bogeyed after muffing some difficult shots. Woods was angry after the tournament because PGA official John Paramor put the two players on a timer after the 16th hole. Harrington rushed his shots and subsequently lost to Woods. Woods said he told Harrington after it was over, “I’m sorry that John got in the way of a great battle.”

When asked if he regretted making the issue personal by singling out the official, Woods said, “No. Because he’s the one who did it.”

It's kind of cool to hear an athlete stand behind what he said in an honest, open way.
