    With the credit crunch in full swing, I doubt it. Besides, Tiger Woods is Tiger Woods, golf ain't basketball. Not like there will be a massive following in the sport among blacks. 90-95% of the world's golfers are white!!

    Golf is very popular among blacks. But they are for the most part pitiful golfers. Golf is irrefutable evidencerebutting the Big Lie that blacks excel at sports they are "interested" in. The Tiger Channel is promoting a new show that is about nothing but "Sir" Charles Barkley being given golf lessons by a white teacher. Although the showand the commercials for it arejust another of a daily mind-numbing promotion of the perpetually dysfunctional 1/8 of the U.S. population as some kind of incredibly gifted and cool group, when you think about it, it's pretty pathetic that a Hall of Fame basketball player can't execute the basic hand-eye requirements ofthe golf swing despite trying for many years.
