I remember when Mike Weir won his Masters Golfing Championship, It brought a tear to my eye, just like the time I watched the movie Ole Yeller. Lost all respect for this Canadian boy when on national tv he belittled his caddy with foul language for all the world to see and hear In a childish behavioral tantrum. That man (caddy) did play his game for him and did not deserve that disrespectful treatment from Weir who obviously thought he above another human being. His fall from golfing grace, his problem.
