Dismissing him is too easy. So is portraying him as some out-of-touch, past-his-prime professional golfer standing alone in the rough, with only his insensitive tweets for company.

And he quadruple-bogeyed on Tuesday, sending a series of controversial tweets about openly gay NFL prospect Michael Sam (two of which he later deleted, reportedly at the request of the PGA Tour).
