Tiger Woods uses Twitter to apologize for the spitting incident

Tiger Woods' Twitter account is never going to rank in the top ten of pro golfers you must follow, but it's moments like this weekend that make the website helpful to the top name in the sport.

Woods, as you can see above, apologized for spitting on a green during the final round of the Dubai Desert Classic, an incident that eventually landed this response by the European Tour on Monday: "Tournament director Mike Stewart has reviewed the incident and feels there has been a breach of the Tour code of conduct and consequently Tiger Woods will be fined."
