Top golfer Tiger Woods, who has been struggling in recent golf tournaments, was caught on camera spitting on the green in Dubai and was fined an undisclosed amount for breaking the rules of the game.
A report by says. "Woods was blatantly seen by television viewers spitting on the 12th green in a clear breach of the European Tour's code of conduct, with a clip of the incident appearing on video-sharing website YouTube".
The tour said in a statement that tournament director Mike Stewart reviewed the matter and "feels there has been a breach of the tour code of conduct."
"The Euro Tour is right - it was inconsiderate to spit like that and I know better," Woods said on Twitter. "Just wasn't thinking and want to say I'm sorry."
The tour would not give the amount of the fine but it is probably between $400 and $16,000 for a minor breach.
It appears Woods infuriates people nowadays just by merely being in golf, a Bleacher Report columnist says.
"It was considered a tasteless act in the game of golf, but I think it's also worth noting he simply slipped, not realizing what he had done before it was too late," the report added.
Woods is trying to regain his top spot in golf after breaking up with his wife following his scandalous involvement with several women including some porn stars.
