TMZ.com reports that Hooters in Augusta, Georgia, will hold a bikini contest with golf-themed events during Tiger Woods‘ return to golf at the Masters Tournament next week. The boobs-and-hot-wings chain will allegedly host games like a putting competition and a long-drive contest to, uh, celebrate golf alongside their, um, celebration of the female form. Klassy, Hooters, very klassy.
However! In all fairness to Hooters, whether Tiger is in town or not, doesn’t a bikini contest seem like something they’d be doing anyway? [TMZ.com] Keep reading »
Today in sexist marketing — some dude is selling golf balls featuring the faces of Tiger Woods’ mistresses, so now, you too can “play a round” with them. The perfect gift for the inane douchebag in your life. [$53.90, Tail Of The Tiger] Keep reading »
So, Tiger Woods cheated on his wife. For those of you who don’t know, Tiger Woods is a professional golfer worth a billion dollars. He is involved in a sex scandal, much like your average politician, rock star, or preacher. I have no opinion on the topic. Except that Tiger Woods has the fashion sense of a middle-aged suburban father who screams into his clenched fist every time he surveys the smoldering ruins of dreams that dot the empty horizon of his soul. Which might be the standard plight of golfers, as the sport is just an expensive version of lawn darts for plumpers with platinum cards.
Wait. That’s an opinion. I hate golf. I blame golf for giving us Tiger Woods in the first place. Keep reading »
Ugh, I am actually a fan of Justin Timberlake so it broke my heart to hear that NYC lit agent David Vigliano is shopping around Timberlake’s golf memoir proposal. Maybe it’s just the die hard golfer in me, since I loved him being a singer, dancer, fashion designer and even enviro-friendly golf course owner, but this makes no sense. Why? It’s true he did play golf all through high school and I know he made the pro-am (pro-amateur) celebrity golf tournament circuits, but from what I understand from those who know better is that he isn’t exactly an avid golfer. Back in the day one of my friends was partnered in a round with him and decided that he was more interested in signing autographs than playing ball. Can’t Justin just write about his rise to fame like Vigliano’s past successful book deals with Shannon Doherty and Clay Aiken? Oh well, let’s hope I’m pleasantly surprised. [Um, for all us non-golfers out there, and we are many(!), does this sound like the most boring book he could possibly write or... ? -- Editor] [Observer] Keep reading »
Sure, Cheyenne Woods is the niece of Tiger Woods, but there’s more to the Wake Forest golfer than that. The 18-year-old, who will turn 19 this month, made her LPGA debut last week but missed the cut by four shots. She’s currently ranked 93rd in the country by Golfweek. Since she was groomed by one of the best golfing coaches, grandfather Earl Woods Sr., she’ll continue to get media attention even after the unsuccessful debut. Learn more about Cheyenne after the jump. Keep reading »
In a sudden death match against underdog Rocco Mediate, Tiger Woods pulled out his third U.S. Open win yesterday. Sports expert-types are calling it his best performance, which we kind of agree with, because honestly? Since when do we care about golf? We were on the edge of our seats! It doesn’t hurt that Tiger is super fine to look at — who knew golfers could be so muscle-y? Anyway, we just wish one thing for Tiger — can he please develop a new celebratory stance? When he bends his knees and pumps his fist, it looks sort of like he is sitting on a toilet. Keep reading »
The avid golfer is welcome on our putting green. [Golf Digest U.S. Open Challenge, San Diego, CA, 6/5/08] Keep reading »
Get thee to a golf course. A new study published in the Scandinavian Journal of Medicine & Science in Sports says that the death rate for golfers is 40 percent lower than for other people of the same sex, age, and socioeconomic statues. This corresponds to a 5-year increase in life expectancy, and golfers with a low handicap (that means they’re good) are the safest. I gotta get a set of clubs. [EurekAlert!] Keep reading »
