Long-time critic throws massive barb at Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods Rick Reilly

One of Tiger Woods’ biggest haters has thrown a huge jibe in the direction of the 15-time major winner.

Woods is making his long-awaited return to golf at the Masters more than a year after being involved in a car crash.

Huge crowds have followed the five-time Masters champion all week, while his return has been met with widespread goodwill.

But it appears not everyone is pleased to see him back.

Sports writer Rick Reilly, a long-time critic of Woods, slammed the former world No.1 over the circumstances leading to his near-fatal crash.

“Not to spit in your ice cream bowl today, but Tiger Woods was going nearly 80 and was out cold when he crossed two lanes, flipped a median and two oncoming lanes before smashing into a tree,” he wrote on Twitter.

“And he never even got a ticket. Now tell me about ‘all he's been through’.”

Authorities in California, where the crash happened, previously said there was “no evidence of impairment” after their investigation.

However, they did note they would not be releasing the findings of their investigation to the public due to “privacy concerns”.
