Tiger Woods drops next tournament

Tiger Woods was forced to pull out of the Chevron World Challenge Tournament in California, his last tourney set for 2009, due to  injuries incurred from his recent car accident, reports People. Woods wrote on his website yesterday (November 30), “I am extremely disappointed that I will not be at my tournament this week. I am certain it will be an outstanding event and I’m very sorry that I can’t be there.” He explained that he is not in top shape to play after the November 27 incident, but didn’t go into further detail about his injuries. The profits earned from the tournament will still go to the Tiger Woods Foundation. Nike, which paid Woods $40 million to represent their products, has given Tiger their support to overcome these rough times. A Nike rep stated, “Tiger and his family have Nike’s full support. We respect Tiger’s request for privacy and our thoughts are with Tiger and his family at this time.” ~BUM Interactif

    How about donating some of that 40 million to charity instead of spending millions to have an event to raise money for charity. This is just one way to get good publicity while donating money instead of just donating it. These events are a waste of time and are total bullshit.

    Tiger’s a loser. He can kiss his endorsements goodbye, as well as his family. Good riddance.

    Well, his money is his to do what he wants with.

    Sponsors throw Billions at Tiger. Beautiful women
    are throwing their gorgous bodies at him. He is only
    human, not that it was right. How many other men could
    refuse all that. For just about everyone the batting average would be 100%. He is just about perfect in
    golf but obviously his marriage leaves a lot to be
    desired. Just human I say. He’ll always be a winner.
