Should the club throw be glorified?

For the past 24 hours I have seen the media glorify the three-iron that Rory McIlroy propelled on Friday. I must say that it was a heck of a throw, but should this throw be celebrated.

If Tiger “bleeping” Woods would chuck any club any where on the course he would be chastised and told about why clubs should not be thrown.

Yes, it is true the world hates Tiger. I do not, but most people do. We need to be fair across the board and criticize all players equally.
