Would you pay $40,000 to play with Tiger?

Instamarv has somehow found this link on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7161142939 where someone won the “privilege” to play with Tiger in a Buick Pro Am. Cost: $40,200 bones.

Something is a little fishy here though. First, the ebay user selling this item joined in June of 2005 and has zero feedback. Second, the funds need to be paid to via paypal and within 3 days of the auction close. Third, look at the photo they used. Tiger is hitting his old Titleist there. You’d think Buick and whoever handles Tiger’s promotional material would come up with a more recent picture wouldn’t you?

Perhaps this deal is legit and I’ve just missed it by skipping over it with my Tivo. I don’t pay attention to the ads much anyway so that is probably the case. At any rate I hope the poor sucker who is rich and dumb enough to pay $40,200 to play with Tiger actually gets the chance and doesn’t end up trying to track down some internet scam artist…
