Tiger Woods and Mark O'Meara in Dubai

I have a very fun Twitter list to follow called TigerPoulterWestwood.  The Twitter hash for it is @TigerPoulterWestwood.  There are only three people on there, Lee Westwood, Tiger Woods and Ian Poulter. 99% of the time Lee Westwood and Ian Poulter are harassing Tiger.  It is very fun to follow.

Yesterday Westwood caught a picture of Tiger Woods and Mark O’Meara hanging out in Dubai (right) and dished out a little dig following Tiger’s and O’Meara’s win in the Dubai Desert Classic Challenge Match.  The Challenge is a nine hole, par-3 event which pitted Woods/O’Meara against Lee Westwood/Miguel Angel Jiménez and Jeev Milkha Singh and Noh Seung-yul.  Woods and O’Meara won the event by two shots at -4.

Westwood’s congratulatory dig

“Breaking news! Omeara/woods win in Dubai . 1 win in 18 months!”

Tiger on playing golf with his pal Mark O’Meara

“It’s always fun to play with Mark.  We don’t play as much as we used to.  Obviously he’s on the Senior Tour now and it’s nice to catch up and play and we’ll have dinner this week.  It’s always fun.  He’s like my big brother and it’s always fun to get out there and play with him. I hit some good shots and he made all the putts!”

I’m actually jealous of Tiger.  Not because of his dough and all that, but because he has such a good pal in O’Meara.  Having met Mark and talked to him for a while, he is one of the most genuine and coolest golf pros ever.

    I agree with this wholeheartedly. Mr. O’Meara is a lovely guy and I remember that he kindly took time out of his round over the Old Course last year to chat about my ‘West Highland Way Walk’ in aid of the veterans society, based here in Scotland called Erskine.
