Kelly Tilghman Suspended for Lynching Tiger Comment

Three hours after the big mouth Al Sharpton made a call... Kelly Tilghman has been suspended from The Golf Channel for two weeks.

Here's the official statement from The Golf Channel: "The Golf Channel regrets the poorly chosen remarks made by Kelly Tilghman on a recent broadcast and, again, extends our apologies to anyone who was offended. There is simply no place on our network for offensive language like this. While we believe that Kelly's choice of words was inadvertent and that she did not intend them in an offensive manner, the words were hurtful and grossly inappropriate. Consequently, we have decided to suspend Kelly for two weeks, effective immediately."
