The Day the Music Died at the Northern Trust Open

Northern Trust got blasted for having Earth Wind & Fire and Sheryl Crow perform concerts at the Northern Trust Open last February... and that's why they just announced that there will be no live music acts at this years golf tournament.

So why did they get blasted? Simple, because they took $1.58 billion in bailout money from the Troubled Asset Relief Program. Yes, they have repaid that money, but they are going to stick with golf-related speakers this year. Smart move.

Loudmouth Golf

I'm sure by now you've seen Loudmouth Golf clothing at your local club. If you haven't, you've probably at least seen John Daly wearing some stylish yet crazy colored clothes on the links.

Rocker Alice Cooper, former NFL quarterback Jim McMahon and Pro Long Drive hitter Bobby Wilson all wear Loudmouth Golf gear too.

And so does yours truly - No Three Putts. A few months ago a Loudmouth Golf associate gave me a pair. I have to admit, I get more than a few glances when I wear them, but they always seem to come with a smile, and a comment like, "Hey, nice shorts."

Here's a link to their website: Loudmouth Golf.

I definitely recommend these golf shorts. They are well made and you'll definitely get noticed.

AT&T Ditches Tiger Woods

AT&T is ending its sponsorship of Tiger Woods. Just like Accenture and Gillette - AT&T is dropping Tiger because of his 16 "transgressions."

I guess this means Tiger Woods won't be the host of the AT&T National PGA event next July... and he won't have that big logo on his bag in 2010.

I'm sure the list of sponsors dropping Tiger Woods will continue to grow.

Is Nike next?

Is Tiger Woods a Sex Addict?

Rumor has it Tiger Woods is in Phoenix, Arizona... but not for plastic surgery as some have suggested, but to get help with his sex addiction.

From what I gather, rumor has it Tiger Woods is at one of two upscale rehab centers in Arizona: Cottonwood de Tucson or The Meadows.

Is Tiger Woods really a sex addict? Is there a "cure" for it?

I don't know...

Barack Obama the Golfer?

According to a White House correspondent President Obama has played 25 rounds of golf since becoming President. But he's only played seven basketball games on the south lawn of the White House.

How important is golf to Barack Obama?

Well, he waited 3 days to address the attack on Flight 253... refusing to interrupt his Hawaiian golf vacation.

President Obama has even agreed to be the honorary chair at the President's Cup Tournament.

A Real Golf Club Slaying

With the Elin and Tiger golf club incident making all the news these days... a real golf club slaying just sent an 18 year-old Detroit area kid to the slammer for 5-15 years.

Apparently Robert Lowry beat another 18 year-old to death with a golf club in September. You can read the full story here.

Cops Say Tiger Woods Had a "Fat Lip"

According to Florida Highway Patrol spokeswoman Kim Montes - Woods and his attorney met with troopers on Dec. 1.

And Tiger Woods had a "fat lip" but there were no other visible facial injuries, four days after the infamous "accident."

The meeting took place somewhere in Orlando. The meeting took place so the cops could hand him a $164 citation for careless driving.

Montes told Orlando television station WESH that Woods had a "fat lip," but no other visible injuries.

What does Tiger Woods want for his 34th birthday?

Today is Tiger Woods 34th birthday, and obviously this years celebration won't be too exciting...

I have a few questions I've pondered regarding Tiger's birthday:

Which (if any) of his 16 mistresses do you think he'll celebrate with?

Will his kids be there?

What do you get him for a gift? Condoms? A prepaid cell phone? Never mind it's too late for one of those.

That's all for now. Oh, I almost forgot - Happy Birthday Tiger!

The "Tiger Woods of Poker" Phil Ivey Gets Divorced

Not only does my favorite poker player, Phil Ivey, look like Tiger Woods... but he has something else in common - he's getting divorced too.

Ivey and his wife Luciaetta filed a joint petition in a Nevada court on December 22. The divorce was granted on December 29, 2009 and both parties were present for the ruling.

Phil Ivey made roughly $12 million this year. He's not exactly in the same league as Tiger when it comes to money - but it's not chump change either.

Tiger's Wood - the Porno

Apparently "Tiger's Wood" is the name of the porno, that's calling itself "the 'official porn parody' of the non-golf exploits of the sports icon. The script riffs on the story and (presumably) makes up stuff where it might make things spicier."

And the cast is in place...

Porn star Kayden Kross is starring as Tiger's wife "porn-Elin," and Tyler Knight will play "porn-Tiger."

Tyler recently blogged, "I'm Tiger Woods, bitches."

In other Tiger Woods porno news, Vivid, is offering up to $1 million to any current or former mistress of Woods' who will star in a porn.

Ya just don't get to read about this stuff in Golf Digest!

Tiger Woods' Stuff on ebay

ebay is flooded with everything related to Tiger Woods right now...

From $21,000,000 Tiger domain names... to a $29,999 Tiger Woods worn shirt from the 2007 U.S. Open... to a signed golf ball for $6,500... there's something there for everyone.

If you didn't get the Tiger gift you wanted for the holidays - no worries simply go here now.

How Much Did Tiger Woods' Transgressions Cost Investors?

Two professors from University of California, Davis estimate the loss to shareholders from Tiger Woods's marital infidelity at up to $12 billion.

The researchers said their study answers the question of whether celebrity sponsorship impacts a firm's bottom line.

"Our analysis makes clear that while having a celebrity of Tiger Woods's stature as an endorser has undeniable upside, the downside risk is substantial, too," said Victor Stango, professor of economics.

Stango and fellow economics professor Christopher Knittel studied the stock market for 13 days after Woods crashed his car on November 27.

The UCD economists compared returns for Woods's sponsors to those of the total stock market and of each sponsor's closest competitor, a UC Davis news release states.

The study focused on nine sponsors: Accenture, American Express, AT&T, Tiger Woods PGA Tour Golf (Electronic Arts), Gillette, Nike, Gatorade, TLC Laser Eye Centres and Golf Digest.

Shareholder value fell 2.3 per cent - or about $12 billion.

Investors in - Tiger Woods PGA Tour Golf, Gatorade and Nike - fared the worst, experiencing a 4.3 per cent loss, or about $6 billion.

Note: The pattern of losses is unlikely to stem from ordinary variation of stock prices, the researchers stated in their study.

John Daly Playing Golf Topless

Here's a classic video of John Daly playing golf without a shirt and no shoes on.

Warning: Do not watch this video on a full stomach.

He actually looks thin here, for him that is.

Rick Reilly, Steve Williams and Tiger Woods

Apparently Tiger's caddy, Steve Williams, was not happy about an article written by Rick Reilly for ESPN The Magazine.

In short, sports columnist Rick Reilly said Woods should fire Williams if he is going to make an effort to repair his marriage.

“(Woods) needs to clean house,” Reilly wrote... “If he wants to keep his wife, he has to get a new agent, a new caddie and some new friends.

“It’s hard to believe all this went on without their help or knowledge. How can she see them as anything but enablers?”

But here's the ridiculous part: Williams denied having knowledge of Woods’ transgressions.

Here's what Steve Williams said, “What people fail to realize is I (just) work for Tiger Woods... I live in New Zealand, I travel to and from New Zealand to caddie for Tiger Woods. I am not with him 24/7."

He went on with his ridiculous banter...

“Whilst I am a very good friend of his … I don’t know what he does off the course. His indiscretions have probably been (when he wasn’t playing). When he is not competing, I am back in New Zealand. I have no knowledge of what he is doing.... I am an honest person. I had no knowledge of what was going on (with Tiger). If I did, I would say I did.”

Does he think people are that stupid? Are we really supposed to believe that load of crap?

It's obvious Steve Williams is trying to save his own marriage to Felice (pictured here with Steve). Who is probably concerned that Steve was out with Tiger having transgressions of his own.

Williams is ready to carry Woods’ bag when he returns to golf.

In his words, “I have always stated that my last caddie job will be caddying for Tiger... I am committed to him. I understand he needs a break to sort his personal stuff out and I will be there for him when he wishes to return to play.”

Nick Price Goes Quail Hunting

Nick Price, a part-time Jupiter Island resident, spent Christmas killing quail in Okeechobee at the Pine Creek Sporting Club.

Price is one of the founders of the ranch. So is Jack Nicklaus, former New York Giants running back Tucker Frederickson and Stephen Myers a Palm Beach developer.

I'm not a fan of hunting, especially farm-raised animals, that are solely bred to be shot and killed. The irony is that I have no problem eating chicken, cow or fish raised so I can eat them. Oh well.

Tiger Woods Audio Book?

According to the New York Times, Hachette Audio will release Tiger Woods’s 2001 best seller, “How I Play Golf,” as an audio book in May 2010.

In it, Tiger Woods shares the “psychological practices he uses daily to keep his game in top shape and help him transcend all the ups and downs of golf,” according to a description in Hachette Audio’s spring-summer 2010 catalog, which was mailed recently to bookstores and journalists.

“The catalog went to bed months before the scandal unfolded,” Anthony Goff, publisher and director of Hachette Audio and Digital Media, wrote in an email. “We had no idea he’d be all over the news for anything other than his golf game.”

The ironic part of the audio books release: They plan to release it for Father's Day.

Tiger Woods Removes Forum From Website

A few Tiger "fans" are speaking their minds on his website forum... and apparently Tiger doesn't like what they have to say.

For instance:

“You are such a piece of garbage ... good job wrecking your family, butthead,”

Another wrote: “You are a laughing stock - just another arrogant athlete who thought he could get away with anything ... your image was nothing but a fraud.”

So, to avoid postings that Tiger doesn't want on his website - he removed the forum.

Too funny.

Is Tiger Woods in Texas Getting New Teeth?

A reliable source with direct ties within the PGA tells me Tiger Woods is in Texas getting three front teeth fixed.

Did Elin smash Tiger in the face and break his teeth? I don't know.

All I can tell you is I live about 5 miles from the PGA of America headquarters - I'm playing at PGA National Golf Club today - and that's what I've heard.

I heard that when his "entourage" went to Costco to load Tiger's boat Privacy with food, it was done as a decoy so he could sneak out on a jet and go to Texas for dental work.

Here's a look at his mouth before Tiger's "transgressions" incident:

Again, I'm not sure if there is any merit to this, but if I'm right - remember where you heard it first!

Helen Alfredsson Reveals Golfers Knew About Tiger's Transgressions

Swedish golf pro Helen Alfredsson is the first golfer to reveal that it was common knowledge on the golf circuit that Tiger Woods was cheating on wife Elin Nordegren.

"I heard it last summer during the British open," Alfredsson told Sweden's TV4 station.

Alfredsson, 44, said Woods is"cold" and that there is "something odd about him."

"If he just paid for the escorts, I [would] understand it a bit more," she said. "Then no one needed to know. But now he did everything and a girlfriend and everything."

Alfredsson, is married to former National Hockey League player Kent Nilsson, also mentioned that she wondered why Woods bothered to get married.

"When he says to the girl that he cannot see her because he has family matters, when Elin will give birth, is he not a bit cold?" she asked.

You'd think a fellow Swede might have given Elin a hint something was going on. It's pretty easy to break silence now... I'm sure Elin wouldn't mind swinging a 5 iron at her for not bringing this up long ago and sparing her the public humiliation!

Is Golf Digest Severing Its Ties With Tiger Woods?

Apparently Golf Digest is suspending Tiger's monthly instructional golf articles. At least for now while Tiger is "taking a break" (avoiding public humiliation) from golf.

Woods has an exclusive contract with Golf Digest valued at $3 million per year.

A spokesman for the company didn't reveal much, "We have nothing to say in regards to Tiger's compensation."

But he did say Tiger will remain the magazine's masthead as Playing Editor.

I think what he meant to say is, "Tiger will remain the magazine's Playa Editor."

Tiger Woods' Mother Kultida

Apparently Tiger Woods' mother Kultida is not very happy with her son.

Apparently a family friend says Kultida Woods is "angry and disappointed" with Tiger and wants to know "how he could do this to his family."

Of course, Kultida is familiar with this behavior - Tiger's late father Earl Woods supposedly cheated on her.

Although Kultida Woods is going to support her son, when she discovered Tiger's transgressions she said, it was "devastating," because she loves her grandchildren and "doesn't want to see them hurt."

Here's a picture of Kultida and Elin Nordegren:

Little Johnny Joke About Tiger Woods

Here's a pretty funny Little Johnny joke about Tiger Woods:

It is near the Christmas break of the school year. The students have turned in all their work and there is really nothing more to do. All the children are restless and the teacher decides to have an early dismissal.

Teacher: "Whoever answers the questions I ask, first and correctly can leave early today."

Little Johnny says to himself "Good, I want to get outta here. I'm smart and will answer the question."

Teacher: "Who said 'Four Score and Seven Years Ago'?"

Before Johnny can open his mouth, Susie says, "Abraham Lincoln."

Teacher: "That's right Susie, you can go home."

Johnny is mad that Susie answered the question first.

Teacher: "Who said 'I Have a Dream'?"

Before Johnny can open his mouth, Mary says, "Martin Luther King."

Teacher: "That's right Mary, you can go."

Johnny is even madder than before.

Teacher: "Who said 'Ask not, what your country can do for you'?"

Before Johnny can open his mouth, Nancy says, "John F. Kennedy."

Teacher: "That's right Nancy, you may also leave."

Johnny is boiling mad that he has not been able to answer to any of the questions.

When the teacher turns her back Johnny says, "I wish these bitches would keep their mouths shut!"

The teacher turns around: "NOW WHO SAID THAT?"

Al Sharpton's UnOfficial Press Release on Tiger Woods

Al Sharpton Blasts Tiger Woods for Lack of Mistress Diversity

The Rev. Al Sharpton held a press conference today to blast Tiger Woods for the lack of diversity among his mistresses. Sharpton claims that the lack of African-American women among Woods’ harem will have a negative affect on the black community, specifically young black girls.

“Why is it that a man who calls himself black can’t bring himself to cheat on his wife with a black woman?” said Sharpton, speaking to a group of supporters in Harlem. “What does it say to young black girls everywhere when you pass them over? Shame on you, Tiger Woods. What would your daddy say?”

Sharpton, who has long championed taking black women as mistresses, said that today’s black athletes need to stop neglecting black women when it comes to extramarital affairs, and should follow the examples of positive black role models such as Jesse Jackson and Martin Luther King, Jr., both of whom cheated on their wives with black women. Sharpton also stressed that cheating with African-American women would help the black community financially by giving black girls the chance to sell their stories to tabloids and gossip magazines.

Added Sharpton, “I’m not asking you to not cheat on your wives, I’m just asking you to give back to your own community.”

Gatorade Drops Tiger... Coincidence?

Gatorade confirmed Tuesday it is dropping its Tiger Woods drink, called Tiger Focus. They claim it has nothing to do with Tiger's recent "transgressions." And this was published in Beverage Digest 2 days before news first broke of Tiger's Escalade hitting the fire hydrant incident, but No Three Putts wonders if they somehow had the inside scoop and new this was coming. What do you think?

Tiger Woods, Elin Nordegren, and the Other Women in His Life...

Apparently the cat is out of the bag. From what I've read Tiger isn't having an affair with just one woman. There are several women that he's having relations with. These include:

Kalika Moquin
Jaimee Grubbs
Rachel Uchitel

I'll add more names as they come out of the woodwork.

Here's a link to an article with complete details on the women in Tiger Woods life.
