    And now there’s yet another new experience Tiger Woods has to deal with. And it’s the last thing we ever thought we’d see from the man who used to be the greatest golfer most of us had ever seen. He quit Sunday in the final round of the Players Championship. Picked his ball up on the seventh hole, said his neck hurts, and didn’t even walk off the course. He climbed in a golf cart and rode off into the metaphorical sunset. Except that little kid running behind him wasn’t yelling, “Come back, Shane!” He was yelling, “"Tiger, say so...

    " What the hosts do is more like placement. ...At the door, a host will procure a man’s credit card and his I.D. and quote him what the minimum will be at a certain table. Table minimums are usually around $1,500 at clubs in Manhattan, but a prime spot can go for as much as $30,000. And Uchitel has seen bills of $245,000 and higher for patrons who are buying huge Methuselahs of Champagne—the equivalent of eight standard bottles in one—or, in their schnockered magnanimity, have decided to treat other tables to rounds of Cristal."

The world’s top golfer, 34, is said to have told estranged wife Elin Nordegren the amazing number of women he bedded during her visit while he was in rehab. Legal sources told US paper the National Enquirer: “When Tiger was in rehab for sex addiction, he filled out four pages, listing the amount of women he’d had affairs with – there were 121 in all.” Now,...

    What would Jesus say to Tiger Woods and Jesse James?" posed the pastor of a Texas megachurch. Addressing the recent celebrity scandals and adulterous affairs that have been adorning tabloids and magazines for the past several months, Pastor Kerry Shook of Woodlands Church challenged the congregation not to cast any more stones than have already been thrown. "A lot of people have been throwing rocks at Tiger Woods and Jesse James," Shook said, alluding to the New Testament account of the adulterous woman the Pharisees wanted to have stoned. "I'm not going to pick up another stone and add to...

    Viewers' general reaction to the "Did You Learn Anything?" spot from Nike featuring Tiger Woods? In a word: "ick." According to ad evaluator Ace Metrix, the commercial scored well below norms for footwear ads overall, garnering low marks for both persuasion and watchability. Ace gauged the clip using an online panel of 500 adults. The 30-second commercial, which featured a voiceover from Tiger's dead dad, received an overall score of 365 out of a possible 950 points. (The norm for spots in the apparel footwear category is 501). For persuasion, the ad scored 428 (vs. a 554 norm for the...

The whole show was just too compelling. It wasn't that way over the weekend. I wanted Tiger to lose -- and it's not just the sex thing. The guy's just too weird." I got that opinion from everyone I talked to about the Masters -- men, women, teenagers, younger kids, hard-core fans, casual observers. Go, Phil. Tiger's the bad guy now. He may eventually get...

    After Tiger got caught cheating on his wife with porn stars, pancake waitresses, cocktail waitresses and many others, he disappeared for months and eventually went to rehab for “sex addiction.” He’s back at The Masters and he’s doing quite well for having taken so much time off. But he hit a terrible note during a press conference when he compared his comeback to that of Ben Hogan, one of golf’s legends. In 1949 Ben Hogan and his wife, Valerie, were driving in their car when a Greyhound bus crossed the center line and hit them head on. Ben threw himself...

A shame, because even though his own kids aren't here, the gathering on the eve of the Masters would have been the perfect way to show off the new Woods that we've been promised. A time to show him having a few laughs with the...

    Tiger Woods will be guarded by a ‘ring of steel’ of 90 private bodyguards – including former FBI and Secret Service agents – as well as armed deputies on his return to golf at the Masters tournament this week. The unprecedented security is in place because of fears he may be confronted by one of his 15 alleged mistresses. The bodyguards are thought to have been given photos of his alleged lovers, including porn star Joslyn James who has threatened to picket the tournament with a group of friends with megaphones. One guard said last night: ‘None of these girls...

"I am asking Tiger for a private and public apology to put my mind at ease and set the record straight," said Decker, a smiling 69-year-old.

In a 2005 book written by Charles Barkley, Woods said he was taunted at a young age by schoolmates because he was bi-racial. The teacher, Maureen Decker, said the story is a complete lie and that she's been unfairly maligned. Decker, who has hired lawyer Gloria Allred, wants a retraction and an apology.

    For Tiger Woods, it's a (big) rush to redemption as the Masters nears By Sally Jenkins Friday, April 2, 2010; D01 Tiger Woods treats his audience like his bimbos. Increasingly, his public remorse over his sex scandals seems merely calculated to make it easier for him to step back on the golf course at Augusta National. As Woods prepares to play in his first major since he wrecked his car and his image, he sounds about as sincere as he did in those text messages suggesting, "You're the only one." Who does he take us for?

    Tiger Woods has got a million problems, and one of them is that he's out $10 million. That's reportedly the amount he paid mistress No. 1, Rachel Uchitel, to keep quiet right as the scandal broke. Uchitel was outed by the National Enquirer as having an affair with Woods in November. A week later, Woods crashed his car into a fire hydrant in his neighborhood, allegedly after his wife, Elin, confronted him about the story and the affair after finding text messages from Uchitel on his phone. In the day after the stories of Tiger's cheating came out, Uchitel...

In April, we could have a new leader in the television ratings clubhouse when Tiger makes his much-anticipated “comeback” at the Masters. This time, however, a lot of people won't be watching to see if Woods breaks records, but to see if he breaks down. They won't tune in to...

    MONTREAL (AFP) - French guru Claude Vorilhon, alias Rael, advised golf superstar Tiger Woods in an open letter on Thursday to divorce his wife and embrace "Adultery is not mental disease but a very normal behavior among both humans and animals," said the leader of the atheist Raelian Movement, whose followers believe life on earth was created by extra-terrestrials. "I encourage you to explore what more and more people are calling 'polyamory,' which means loving many people simultaneously and with no jealousy," he said. .... "If she (Elin Nordgren) doesn't get therapy, you will be better off divorcing such a...

    Friends have been asking me why I haven't written my take on "the Tiger Woods deal," so here it comes. First, let me just say that I'm still having trouble getting past the video games and Fruit Loops. That's if I'm to believe the report that Tiger was so distraught after his indoor athleticism became public -- and turned into what some people call a Shakespearean tragedy -- that he crawled into deep, lonely hiding and occupied his time playing video games and eating Fruit Loops. Maybe it is true, and that's why Tiger's agent, Mark Steinberg of IMG, said...

    Gloria Allred's new feminism Is the pioneering attorney taking a trivial turn in the Tiger Woods case? Sandy Banks February 23, 2010 It was no shock that my column Saturday criticizing public scrutiny of Tiger Woods' apology drew plenty of e-mail response from readers, most of whom agreed that Woods is accountable to his family, not his fans, for whatever "transgressions" occurred in his personal life. What surprised me, though, was that so many readers were offended by the photo that accompanied the piece. "It's hard to take your comments seriously with the backdrop of television lawyer Gloria Allred, media...
  • The saddest part of the Tiger Woods statement last Friday

    The saddest part of the Tiger Woods statement last Friday was his public announcement of his Buddhist faith. Woods mother is from Thailand and a Buddhist. Woods claimed that he has been a practicing Buddhist all of his life, though strayed from its' teachings years ago, helping to lead him to make the choices that caused his downfall. Sadly for Tiger, even if his marriage is restored, he goes on to win a hundred more golf tournaments, ends up winning more majors than Jack Nicklaus, and earns 5 billion dollars over his lifetime, when he takes his last breath he...
  • Dalai Lama offers advice for Woods after asking, 'Tiger who?'

    The Dalai Lama said Saturday that he had - somehow - never heard of Tiger Woods. When Woods' sex scandal was explained to him, Tibet's exiled spiritual leader emphasized the importance of self-discipline. All religions have the same idea "when it comes to adultery," he said. "Whether you call it Buddhism or another religion, self-discipline, that's important. . . . Self-discipline with awareness of consequences." Woods, in his carefully scripted apology on Friday, struck a similar line. He said that in recent years he had "drifted away" from the Buddhist values of his upbringing. "Buddhism," he said, "teaches that a...
  • Tiger Woods' Apology Not Convincing: Where's Apology for Media and His Mistresses?

    I have to admit while watching Tiger Woods' highly anticipated mea culpa last Friday, I quickly lost interest. It was evident Woods was reading from a script and his apology lacked sincerity. In fact, I wish Tiger had my number because I could have written a more believable speech for a fraction of the cost he must have paid some high priced pr firm who didn't really get the job done. The operative question is: What was Woods apologizing for? The answer to this question is simple. Woods couldn't come back to the PGA without some kind of admission of...

    The Tiger Woods story is back in high gear and the media love it. I’ve heard several people compare his plight to that of Bill Clinton and other disgraced politicians. In my mind the only people to whom Tiger Woods owes an apology are his wife, children and his sponsors. Tiger Woods doesn’t foist his morals or lack thereof on the public by signing or vetoing legislation. Tiger Woods doesn’t nominate Supreme Court Justices and Tiger Woods is not the Commander of the most powerful military on Earth. Tiger Woods plays a game. If anyone, the people who owe us...

    Tiger Turns To Buddhism To Turn Life Around Apologetic golf star vows to use religion to bring ‘balance’ to his ways In the theater of American public apologies, it’s common for celebrities to invoke their faith. Disgraced golf superstar Tiger Woods did it Friday, in fact, with a twist. He cited the role of Buddhism in his life — and will look to it to help him recover from serial infidelity. “People probably don’t realize it, but I was raised a Buddhist, and I actively practiced my faith from childhood until I drifted away from it in recent years,” Woods...

    CHEATING Tiger Woods promised to mend his ways yesterday - with the help of Buddhism. The golf superstar had tears in his eyes as he apologised for betraying wife Elin during flings with a string of women. In a 13½-minute speech, Tiger, 34, said fame and fortune had led him to act as though he lived by different rules from his millions of fans. He confessed: "I was unfaithful. I had affairs. I cheated." Tiger will return to rehab today to continue the fight to rehabilitate himself and save his marriage. And he also revealed he is turning for support...
