Serena Williams busted trying to take picture of Tiger Woods from gallery

Serena Williams golf pictureSerena Williams attended the Honda Classic at PGA National on Friday, and she learned the hard (and embarrassing) way that spectators are not allowed to take pictures of golfers from the gallery.

The tennis star was stopped by the marshal while trying to take a picture of Tiger Woods. She admitted the mistake via Twitter, pleading innocence:

The Honda Classic is in Serena’s home area of Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., which explains why she was there. At least she did grab one pic of Tiger that she managed to upload before being shot down:

There’s just something awesome about the top women’s tennis player in the world taking a picture like a fan and getting shut down just like the rest of us.

    It is ridiculous than fans can’t take pictures of PGA golfers.  PGA golfers are the biggest babies in sports.

    I didn’t know this was a rule. I see Tiger yelliing at people for taking pictures during his back swing but never heard you couldn’t take them any other time……guess I won’t be going to any tourneys soon!

    My guess is that Tiger Woods is set up VERY comfortably (financially). Why, then is he concerned about fans taking his picture? Is he worried that the images might get sold on E-Bay? I doubt if that would be taking anything out of HIS wallet. For all anybody knows, some of those fans, STANDING in the gallery, off to the side, sometimes in the sun or rain, might have traveled a great distance for the pleasure of watching this golf icon. The least TIGER could do is allow the fans to capture a memory of being there. I’m voicing this from a photographer’s point of view, as well as from my opinion that ALL pro sports figures owe at least a modicum of appreciation and recognition to the fans for their loyalyu.

    Apparently it’s the PGA’s rule, not Tiger’s.

    Nobody said Tiger had anything to do with this incident.

    Another knee jerk reaction to facts not established.

    I’m surprised the Tiger queers aren’t commenting today how “Tigers in the hunt chasing Thompson 16 back with two to play”
