Suspended Golf Channel anchor Kelly Tilghman returned to work Thursday and immediately apologized for an inappropriate remark that led to her being taken off the air.
Tilghman served a two-week suspension for suggesting, albeit jokingly, that challengers to Tiger Woods should "lynch him in a back alley."
The cover of Golfweek's Jan. 19 issue illustrated Kelly Tilghman's remark. The cover of Golfweek's Jan. 19 issue illustrated Kelly Tilghman's remark.
"I'm Kelly Tilghman," she said in a taped segment played at the top of Thursday's broadcast of the Buick Invitational.
"It is an honour to be with you again. In a recent live broadcast, I used an inappropriate word that was offensive to many.
"Over the last two weeks, I have taken this time to reflect and truly understand the impact of what I said. While I did not intend to offend anyone, I understand why those words were hurtful.
"I am terribly sorry for any hurt that I have caused. I would like to express my deepest apologies."
Tilghman made the remark Jan. 4 in a conversation with analyst Nick Faldo during second-round coverage of the Mercedes-Benz Championship.
Woods accepted Tilghman's personal apology, reaffirming "there was no ill intent in her comments," but she was suspended when civil rights activist Rev. Al Sharpton got involved.
A week later, Golfweek magazine published an issue with a photograph of a noose on the cover above the headline, "Caught in a noose." The subtitle stated, "Tilghman slips up, and Golf Channel can't wriggle free."
Readers were outraged because the noose remains a symbol of lynching in the U.S., where, according to Tuskegee University, it is estimated that 3,466 African-Americans were hanged from 1882 to 1968.
Golfweek vice-president and editor Dave Seanor, who approved the cover, was subsequently fired Jan. 18.

How come he didn’t just write a letter to the editor like everyone else???
What makes him so special to be on the front page???
Please make me understand????
I heard a few emergency vehicles racing pass my place.
A couple of minutes later, I heard on 92.3. FredFm that there was a major accident on the Westmorland Bridge.
I still got a bad cold and it’s cold out there.
The more I was thinking about the accident? The more it drove me nuts because there could be cars hanging from the Bridge?
Could it be that bad?? But I got a bad cold????
Then I said- F@CK IT!!!!
I put my clothes on and out the door I went.
I was walking towards the scene still coughing.
My God! It was cold!!!!
With my luck, the accident was across the bridge!!!
So? Am I a nut or just dedicated to the cause??? I wish I was paid for this hobby!!!!
I’m proud to say that nobody got seriously hurt!!!
