Australian PGA Leaves Clive Palmer's Resort, Distances Event From 'Incendiary' Comments
Published February 12, 2013
MAKING NICE: In Sydney, Brent Read reported the PGA Tour of Australia has contacted Tiger Woods "in an attempt to distance itself from comments" made by Palmer in which he described Woods "as an emotional wreck and a poor example for children." It emerged that Thorburn had emailed Woods' management "to clarify the incendiary comments." Palmer made the assertions about Woods, "including the suggestion that he would rather have Peter Senior at his tournament, in an interview with The Australian" at the end of '12. The article "attracted international attention and Thorburn, wary of the potential for the comments to damage future attempts to attract Woods to the event, felt strong enough to extend an olive brand to the 14-time major winner" (THE AUSTRALIAN, 2/12).
