Meanwhile, Back At The Woods Sted…

The reactions of the guy in the green jack and his good friend are priceless. For the record, it was taken during the Masters.
It’s good to be Tiger Woods again, particularly when you have Lindsey Vonn, the media and Sergio Garcia slobbering all over you. OK, maybe not Sergio. But you get the point. Earlier in the week, Tiger was all the rage for getting drunk and being somebody at a party with Lindsey. Today, everyone is singing his praises again.

Updated Status: In A Relationship

Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn using Facebook to announce they’re sleeping together? What is the world coming to?
From Tiger: “This season has been great so far and I’m happy with my wins at Torrey and Doral. Something nice that’s happened off the course was meeting Lindsey Vonn. Lindsey and I have been friends for some time, but over the last few months we have become very close and are now dating. We thank you for your support and for respecting our privacy. We want to continue our relationship, privately, as an ordinary couple and continue to compete as athletes.”
From Lindsey: “I guess it wasn’t a well-kept secret but yes, I am dating Tiger Woods. Our relationship evolved from a friendship into something more over these past few months and it has made me very happy. I don’t plan on addressing this further as I would like to keep that part of my life between us, my family and close friends. Thank you for understanding and your continued support! xo LV”

Jack Of Clubs

    With his victory Sunday in the AT&T National, Tiger Woods passed Jack Nicklaus and moved into 2nd place for PGA wins. Good for him. Is he back? Not like before. Not even close. Still, we couldn’t help noticing the return of his annoying habit of being a jerk after the tournament. But that’s Tiger.

Shot In The Arm

    We’ll give Tiger Woods props for winning the Memorial Tournament on Sunday. We won’t be banging the drum about how he’s back in the high life again. Ain’t happening.
