Kaymer critical of ‘nasty’ Woods reaction
Former world number one Martin Kaymer says the reaction to Tiger Woods' arrest has been "disrespectful and unfair".
In a recorded message posted on his Twitter account, Kaymer spoke out in support of Woods, who was found asleep at the wheel of his car with the engine running in Florida on Monday.
Woods said he suffered an unexpected reaction to medication, and Kaymer believes the only thing the American needs right now is help, not condemnation.

"Obviously a lot of people know what happened to Tiger Woods the last few days," Kaymer said.
"There's so many comments, so many opinions. They are so unfair and so disrespectful, in my opinion.
"He inspired kids, teenagers; he inspired all of us.
"I find it so nasty that people just kick him while he's already on the floor, and at the end of the day it's just using someone else for your own sadness. Yes, he's in the public eye, he's in the spotlight a lot, so of course people will talk about him.
"But why so nasty? Why don't you try to do the opposite and help him now in the way he inspired us?"
To date, Kaymer's message has received over 16 000 likes and nearly 7 000 retweets, with many congratulating the German on his message of support.
