Can Buddhist Tiger Woods Take God’s Name in Vain?

It’s been mentioned in several holy scriptures that thou shall not take the Lord’s name in vain. Is Tiger Woods exempt from this rule because Tiger’s a devout Buddhist? After all, listen to him get pissed off after a poor shot on the sixth hole Saturday in the third round of the Masters:

I’m guessing anyone who’s screwed up in sports has had a similar reaction to Tiger but now that he’s a Buddhist, maybe the God Squadders won’t be able to criticize him.

    Well some would argue that buddhism does say no cursing. Others point out that it’s said such cursing is only
    bad if directed towards someone else in a negative way.

    any why all the uproar about this? Did people not grow up in the 80s when we actually watched regular season
    NBA games where the whole country could hear bird, magic, jordan, barkley, laimbeer, etc cussing up a storm
    every weekend on NBC?
