I’ve not commented about the latest strange happenings in the golf world as of yet. I’m sort of sitting on my proverbial couch, eating proverbial popcorn, and watching the freakshow unfold.
Tiger Woods: Tough and Ruthless or Rough and Toothless?
First off we have the toothless Tiger Woods. Apparently he was in Italy to watch his girlfriend Lindsey Vonn compete in a ski race. In the hustle to get positioning, a camera man knocked out Tiger’s front tooth, the discolored one. Tiger is no fan of the media at all. I can imagine there was a nice, pleasant discussion following said de-toothing.
For the record by the way, the discolored tooth Tiger had was not as a result of his ex wife Elin Nordegren knocking it out on that crazy Thanksgiving night. The tooth was discolored for years before that. Many uninformed news outlets and golf social networks have claimed that the discolored tooth was because of Elin, but it is not. Get your facts straight.
Tiger is playing in Phoenix at the Phoenix Open next week, a tournament he said he would not play in again. It will be interesting to see if he has had the tooth fixed by then, and if the media will have the balls to inquire about what happened. Maybe he’s waiting for Obamacare to kick in.
Robert Allenby Kidnapping
At the Sony Open Robert Allenby missed the cut. That would be the best thing to happen to him that weekend. News came out that he had been kidnapped, robbed, beaten, put in the trunk of a car, and dumped in a park six miles from the wine bar he had been patronizing. Over the last week the story has gotten more and more fishy, and eyewitnesses are coming forward with different stories. The latest stories are saying he was drunk and fell on his face, on a rock. One story even includes a strip club, not a wine bar.
Odd things which stand out to me: Allenby did not contact the police immediately after the kidnapping. Also, he’s never appeared with any bandages. Seems strange.
I’d better pop more popcorn for this one.
Dustin Johnson and Paulina Gretzky
DJ and Paulina Gretzky are now parents. Dustin is gearing up for a return to golf, and denies any rumors of cocaine use.
My question is, will Paulina be breast feeding? Golf Digest could get some even bigger boob photos for their next “fitness” article if so!
More popcorn please, with butter.
