HONOLULU (AP) -- Golf Channel has suspended anchor Kelly Tilghman
for two weeks for comments she said regarding Tiger Woods.
Tilghman said last week that young players who wanted to challenge Woods should "lynch him in a back alley." Tilghman was laughing during the exchange Friday with analyst Nick Faldo at the Mercedes-Benz Championship. Woods' agent at IMG said he didn't think there was any ill intent.
But the comments became prevalent on news shows Wednesday, and
the Reverend Al Sharpton joined the fray by demanding she be fired
Golf Channel didn't know who would replace Tilghman in the booth for the upcoming PGA events.
