Sport's Spitting Scandals

Tiger's Dubai Spit

The most recent spitter on our list is Tiger Woods. Tiger spit on the 12th hole after missing a par putt on his way to a 3-over 75 during the final round of the Dubai Desert Classic in February 2011.

Tournament director Mike Stewart reviewed the incident and "feels there has been a breach of the tour code of conduct."

The tournament hosts were outraged by Wood’s actions and issued the golfer a fine. While the actual amount was not disclosed, the fine is estimated to be in the range of $400-$16,000.

Tiger responded to the punishment via Twitter, "The Euro Tour is right — it was inconsiderate to spit like that and I know better, just wasn't thinking and want to say I'm sorry."
