Skip to comments.Tiger Woods, the $8-an-hour diner waitress and the deal that kept their affair out of the news

Today, Mindy Lawton, 34, knows that she was just one of many mistresses taken by the golfer. Throughout their 14-month affair she thought that what she had with Tiger was special & that they were in love.
She and Tiger met in summer 2006, when Mindy was working as an $8-an-hour manager & waitress at Perkins, a diner only a short drive from Tiger's home.
Tiger & his wife Elin would regularly take breakfast there.
He called her at Perkins & said, "This is Tige," - that's the pet name he always used for himself - "Will you meet me at the Blue Martini?"
'She was very excited but nervous so she asked our next oldest sister, Bobbi, to go with her. She was like, "Oh, I'm going to hang out with Tiger!"'
It is now known that this nightclub & cocktail bar was a favourite haunt of Tiger's. Tiger & Mindy left the club separately.
Mindy drove her sister home then met Tiger on his way to his house. She followed, driving at a discreet distance, & at the gated development was waved in by the guard.
Lynn said: 'Mindy told me the next day, "We went to his house and & sex. He was extremely good."'
Lynn thinks Elin was out of the country that night. She said: 'That was always the pattern. Mindy would drive her old Saturn car & follow Tiger in his Escalade.
According to our investigation, when 'Team Tiger' discovered that a tabloid magazine not only had blurry pictures of him & Mindy in the car park but evidence of the consummation, they went into a panic. Then they went to work.

I expect to hear that he has checked into a rehab for sexual addiction.
I hope his wife cleans his bank account out!
Yep. Anyone notice that all of tiger's girlfriends are white? Is this some kind of discrimination?
In fact, it seems likely that Tiger's affair with Mindy overlapped with his relationship with Jaimee Grubbs, the 24-year-old cocktail mistress he met in April 2007 and with whom he had a three-year affair.
“I hope his wife cleans his bank account out”
I suspect she has already sucked him dry.
His wife deserves every penny she can get.
Sounds like Elin called Joey Greco
There is an old saying about how you shouldn’t $hit in your own backyard....
If Tiger likes to play the field so much, why did he ever get married?
No but every woman he has screwed around with has!
Oh man, you don’t think he was doing the dog, too?
Tiger is a POS and slime. His wife should demand $40 million more for every additional new mistress.
Pay up Tiger because Elin would make sure your only sponsor would be Trojan condoms and probably Nike because they will sponsor Vick, Ray Lewis, Kobe and other scum.
This guy is a sociopath...
Imagine having to read these things about your husband...
Tiger Woods is total scum. No wonder his wife beat the crap out of him.
Who is Joe Creco? I hope Elin and these other women take every thing they can get. Ho;arious watching Nike, Gatorade, Accenture, AT&T try to do damage control for this slime. Too bad the PGA will do nothing.
He wanted beautiful children.
He's lucky she didn't have a gun.
“Tiger in his Escalade.”
Are Buick execs a little peeved about all the publicity his Escalade has been getting? (Yes, I know it’s all in the GM family.) Not that I ever thought he drove a Buick.
In the movie A Guide for the Married Man one of the rules Robert Morse teaches Walther Matthau about being a successful adulterer is to never have the tryst in your own home. To illustrate the point in the movie Terry Thomas takes Jayne Mansfield home when the wife is out and she them misplaces her bra. Leaving Terry to worry about the wife one day finding the missing bra.
My thoughts exactly.
Tiger is too arrogant to care about that.
Call me a simpleton but why doesn’t Tiger just divorce Elin and move on with his life and honor the original pre-nup instead of paying her all this extra dough? He really can’t expect her to be devoted and affectionate towards him any longer. His high-priced lawyers would insist on joint custody of the children, wouldn’t they?
He probably has an iron clad pre-nup with Elin but she should get a good lawyer and “go medieval on his a*s” Tell I want a divorce and half or you will have no sponsors. Whta a POS he is.
That could worry Elin if he wants joint custody. The kids would be exposed to his bimbos.
Is that about it? Is tramp too strong a word, or would that be the appropriate name of someone who's sleeping with a married man?
Reminiscent of Der Leader ... all a facade.
I feel sorry for Elin too, and this pathetic waitress should go after him for money. Maybe she saved text messages or voice mail.
He could have ended up like McNair(?).
I wonder when she went whacking on him if she thought there was only one bimbo? Geez.
If I were his wife, I would have the kids in Sweden by now. He doesn’t deserve to be their father and until he gets help, she needs to protect herself and her innocent children.
If he just divorces her with the original prenup, he can’t dictate the hush-up. $$$ will be used to attempt to minimize damage (if that’s possible at his point).
What a scum (understatement of the year!)
One of the articles had him currently at 9. These were ongoing “relationships,” not one night stands.
I’ve lost count of the number of women. If you look at Google news, another one seems to pop up every day. The tabloids have the courage to expose the story. The golf media is silent, as far as I can tell.
Time to grow up women...time to grow up.
The chances of any man - in a contested divorce - getting joint custody when his job requires him to be away from home 20 or more weeks out of the year, is slim. Very slim. I would be surprised if she wasn't awarded anything other than sole physical custody, FWI.
I wonder if Tiger read the autobiography of Wilt Chamberlain and took things in there too seriously?
I'm sure Elin had no clue about all these women. His bodyguards and staff protected him.
I watched a little of the tournament today. From what I heard, not a peep was mentioned. Perhaps I missed it.
Give me a break. Woods physically is not an ordinary guy.
He has the drive, focus and physique of a gladiator. That is why he is a world class athelete.
So his libido is strong, and he has hurt himself and his family because of it.
Should he be married? I don’t think so. He needs many women not just one. I do not believe he is a marriage type of guy, and perhaps he has just discovered for himself that he is not suited for marriage either.
So what? C’est la vie!
He works hard, plays hard, and loves hard, and one woman is obviously not enough for him.
Lets move on. There are many men and women who are just like Tiger, but are not public personnas. I know a few myself. Not everyone is cut out for marriage.
I think Woods is trying to tie, or perhaps break, Wilt Chamberlain’s “had sex with 20,000 women” record. At least that what Wilt claimed.
Depends on how long she had his cell phione and what see found.
Sounds like he could be a bosom buddy of OBOZOS!!
They both appear to have equal moral Characters!!
This article, and as usual the Brits have better details than the USA papers, describes SIX women. Oy vey, Tiger. Oy vey.
I think Tiger thinks waitresses are there to provide him with ANYTHING he’s in the mood for.
Nine? That's ridiculous. He's only been married 5 years - barely.
I'm sure her legal counsel has advised her to get tested for HIV. What a conversation that must have been - and what fear she must have about it.
His problem right now is that HE IS MARRIED with 2 babies.
So funny and so true. I'm not into golf and never had any opinion about Tiger.....until I read this article. Now I have an opinion. He's garbage. I bet he voted for O.
A quickie in the Escalade in a church parking lot, photographed by a tabloid. That has to be an all time record!
He’s such a cheap bastard as well. If he had gone with a high end escort service, we would probably never know. (most of the Emperor’s Club clients were never released)
Well, penny wise, pound foolish as “Tige” will find out when he sees the divorce settlement.
I said the same thing. If I were her, I’d get my half a zillion and be on the next flight out to Sweden with the kids. Let him have his bimbos and their diseases.
