Golfweek editor fired over cover image

The editor of Golfweek magazine in the US, Dave Seanor, has been fired following a decision to publish a controversial image of a noose set against a purple sky with the caption: “Caught in a Noose: Tilghman slips up, and Golf Channel can’t wriggle free”.

According to The Daily Telegraph, the image appeared on the 19 January cover following a comment made by Golf Channel presenter, Kelly Tilghman, in which she suggested that the only way of stopping Tiger Woods would be to “lynch him in a back alley”.

Golfweek has apologised for causing offence.
