ST. ANDREWS, Scotland (CBS) – Tiger Woods will have to keep his language clean at the British Open.

The British newspaper The Mirror reports the Royal and Ancient Golf Club, which organizes the British Open, is planning on a crackdown on inappropriate language and behavior at this year’s tourney in July.

Royal and Ancient Club chief executive Peter Dawson told the Mirror, “These guys are role models and we are looking for them to behave as well as possible on the course.”

Woods got himself in hot water back in February, when he spat on the green during the final round of the Dubai Desert Classic. He was fined by the European tour for the offense.

The British Open is set for July 14-17 at the Royal St. Georges Golf Club in Sandwich, Kent, England.
