The Enquirer Reports Tiger Woods' Secret Tryst With Amanda Dufner

 


Nat -enq -square _0


In the past it's safe to say you'd typically dismiss the outragious National Enquirer tales about a targeted celebrity. 

That was before their November 2009 bombshell breaking story about Tiger Woods and his serial sexcapades while married to Elin Nordegren that ultimately led to divorce and millions lost in endorsements. 

Now, the tabloid is publishing a report that Woods has been canoodling with Tour player Jason Dufner's now ex-wife Amanda Boyd Dufner--which also led to now ex-squeeze Lindsey Vonn breaking things off in May. 

Given the high probability of facing huge lawsuits from deep-pocketed celebs if the story wasn't true, you'd have to believe the Enquirer carefully checked their facts before posting the story. 

And if true (boy I hope he's smarter than that), how sorry is Tiger (who could nab just about any skirt he desired) for going after a fellow player's spouse? Talk about a flawed guy with zero scruples. 

Anyway, here are the details:

“Even though Tiger dated Lindsey for years, he had a ‘thing’ for Amanda,” a source told The ENQUIRER. “At first, it was just innocent flirting, but earlier this year it became serious.”

According to the source, Woods and Boyd have been carrying on their steamy affair for months.

Dufner, 38, and Boyd married in May 2012 and became social media darlings after he won the 2013 PGA Championship.

“Amanda is gorgeous, and she’s known as a big flirt with the other players on the PGA tour,” said another insider. “I guess her flirty ways and good looks caught Tiger’s eye.”

But when Dufner found out his ex had been with Tiger, adds the source, “He was devastated!”

According to divorce papers filed on March 16, Boyd and Dufner finalized their split, which they said was due to an “irretrievable breakdown of the marriage,” the following month.

Woods, 39, flew Boyd from her home in Alabama to Seattle for a few days in early June while he was preparing for the U.S. Open.

Of course, Woods' agent Mark Steinberg vehemently denied his boss did such a thing

“Absolutely 100 percent false,” agent Mark Steinberg said in an e-mail to FOX411 when we requested comment on the report. “Complete lie and fabrication.”

“The report is categorically false. Absolutely zero truth to that ridiculous rumor.” 

However, he also didn't say they'd sue The Enquirer. If it was truly false, wouldn't Woods and his legal begals go after the tabloid in quick fashion?

Looking ahead, things could soon get mighty interesting and dicey on the range--although Dufner isn't playing in the Greenbrier Classic this week (Woods is).  

 

Donald Trump: "Let Golf Be Elitist"

 


Trump _Hair


Billionaire and new Presidential candidate Donald Trump isn't helping the game of golf much these days.

First, he banned Univision staffers from his Doral Golf Course

A week ago, Univision announced that it was dropping its coverage of all Miss Universe and Miss USA events after Trump made divisive remarks about Mexican immigrants in his presidential campaign announcement. Trump is a partial owner of the pageant system.

Then yesterday, in a Fortune magazine interview, The Donald stated he believes golf needs to be an elitist sport

Should golf be elitist?: It may be elitist, and perhaps that’s what golf needs. Let golf be elitist. When I say “aspire,” that’s a positive word. Let people work hard and aspire to some day be able to play golf. To afford to play it. They’re trying to teach golf to people who will never be able to really play it. They’re trying too hard.

Yeah, he's doing wonders for a sport that's desperately seeking new players from all walks of life. 

Thanks for nothing you buffoon.  

At what point does the PGA Tour, PGA, USGA and LPGA step in to give Trump a strong talking to? For organizations who are so carefully image conscious, it makes no sense sticking with him and his WGC-Cadillac Championship.

UPDATE: Then again, maybe not. 

NBC, Univision and Macy's have cut ties with the real estate mogul following his comments, but the PGA of America, the LPGA, the USGA and the PGA Tour will go forward with their previously scheduled plans to host tournaments on his courses.

The PGA of America's Grand Slam of Golf is scheduled to take place in October at Trump National Los Angeles, and Trump Turnberry in Scotland is set to host the LPGA Tour's Ricoh Women's British Open at the end of this month, though that event is run by the Ladies Golf Union. 

There are "no plans to alter any of our upcoming venues," LPGA Commissioner Mike Whan told the Associated Press.

 

Charles Barkley's Swing Is Channeling Thru Shaq

 


Shaq _Bubba _Feature 2-482x 550


Shaquille O'Neal played in the Greenbrier Classic Pro-Am yesterday.

Apparently, he's taken lessons from the noted golf-embattled Charles Barkley


See for yourself as Shaq whiffed three times on his opening tee shot. Big clubhead speed only helps if you make contact. 

 


Good luck Shaq and stick with it. 'Cause if you do make contact, the ball may travel Herman Munster-esque distances. 

 

 

 

Oh, and Shaq told ESPN's Jason Sobel about his game:

"Better than Barkley's, but awful. I took him for $100,000 once."

That must've been either excruciating or great to witness. 

 

Man Pleads Guilty To Stealing Robert Allenby's Credit Cards

 


Allenby


Remember Robert Allenby's wild and bizarre story of being abducted, beaten and robbed in Hawaii back in January?

Well, maybe the scenario is still unbelievable, but it appears police did arrest a guy for stealing Allenby's credit cards.

Owen Harbison was arrested in February on charges of identity theft, attempt theft and unauthorized possession of confidential personal information.

As part of a plea deal, Harbison agreed to a five-year prison term, Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Jacob Delaplane said. Sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 12.

Harbison used Allenby's credit cards and ID around Honolulu to buy gift cards, clothing and jewelry, Delaplane said. The total amount spent wasn't available.

It's still unclear what happened to Allenby after he left Amuse Wine Bar. Harbison is the only person who has been arrested in connection with the case.

The saga generated interested when Allenby took a photo of his scraped and bloodied face and posted it to his Facebook page after he got back to his hotel. He first said he was beaten, robbed and thrown from the trunk of a car. He later said he was told that by a homeless woman who helped him escape from a park.

Allenby said in a text message that he would wait until the sentencing before commenting.

We can hardly wait. Wait...yes we can.

The OWGR Are Very Different For The Last Six Months

 


CIznz Vd Uc AAppk6


The World Golf Rankings are flawed mainly since it's a two-year cycle. Compare the above rankings for the last six months vs. the official list. Via Nosferatu on Twitter. 

The main moves are Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy switch places at the top, Bubba Watson drops from 3rd to 11th, Jimmy Walker (12th to 4th), Paul Casey (23rd to 7th) and J.B. Holmes (13th to 6th). 

The hottest players should be ranked higher and a 6th month span is more than a fair assessment of a golfer's game. 

BTW, Tiger Woods now drops to 220th entering the Greenbrier Classic this week. 

 

This Is How You Say "I'm Sorry For My Slow Play"

 


Slow Play Prov1


GolfDigest.com posts a reassuring story that not every slow golfer is a clueless oaf on the course

We can all agree that slow golf is the worst. There's nothing as painful as watching someone take four practice swings for every shot on their way to shooting 102. But there are a few situations that merit slow golf. The most obvious is people who are learning how to play. Whether they're juniors or adults picking the game up, you've got to cut them some slack when it comes to slow play on the course.  

This Reddit user was out playing by himself, and had a couple in front of him who were clearly learning how to play. The course was busy, so he couldn't play through. Instead of getting frustrated, he played two balls and let the couple do their thing. When he got to the last hole, the sleeve of ProV1s was waiting for him, with a note thanking him for being patient. It read simply: "Thanks for being so patient! Have fun!" 

A shining example for all the course snails to follow... 

 

Is Tom Brady Too Famous To Join This Exclusive Club?

 


Brady


Tom Brady and wife Gisele are one of the highest-profile celeb couples around. Most golf clubs would love to admit them as members. 

Except for maybe this one. The Boston Globe reports why the Country Club in Brookline could have reservations about welcoming them with open arms. The club is ranked 19th in Golf Digest's top-100 greatest courses. 

Word around the club’s meticulously manicured grounds is that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and his supermodel spouse, Gisele Bundchen, whose mansion is just an errant tee shot away, would like to join. But it’s not clear if the club famous for understatement and insularity will accept the glamorous power couple as members.

Why? Because the 133-year-old institution prizes privacy and discretion above all else. And Brady and Bundchen, trailed as they often are by paparazzi, and occasionally controversy, attract the sort of attention abhorred by the multimillionaires who belong to the primrose playground on Clyde Street in Chestnut Hill.

“I don’t know what they’ll do about Brady,” said a prominent Boston businessperson who is amused by the club’s predicament. Like any bastion of Brahmin privilege, “The Country Club believes your name should appear in the newspaper just two times: When you’re born and when you die.”

Besides the Pats quarterback and his wife, homeowners in the pricey neighborhood include real estate developer Jonathan Davis, Patriots owner Robert Kraft, and Reebok founder Paul Fireman, who, in the late 1990s, built a sprawling, 25,000-square-foot mansion adjacent to the club, to much harrumphing by TCC members.

The club has a well-deserved reputation for being exclusive — some would say exclusionary — when it comes to its members. Consider this: No Jews were admitted until the 1970s, no women (as full members) until 1989, and no blacks until 1994. In his memoir, “A Reason To Believe,’’ former governor Deval Patrick revealed that he and his wife, Diane, were rejected — “blackballed,’’ he wrote — by The Country Club.

Somehow, I think the dynamic duo will manage just fine...
