Golfweek Fires Editor Over Noose Cover

Golfweek magazine, which published a cover with a noose set against a purplish sky to illustrate its coverage of a controversial comment about Tiger Woods, announced Friday that it had fired Dave Seanor, the editor who approved the cover.

The Golfweek cover was in response to the remark by Golf Channel’s Kelly Tilghman on Jan. 4 that one way for young golfers to stop Tiger Woods is to “lynch him in a back alley.” The magazine cover line reads: “Caught in a Noose: Tilghman slips up, and Golf Channel can’t wriggle free,” and points readers to a special report by the weekly magazine.
