Tigers don’t roar, they tweet
Tiger breaks silence… on twitter
I could make up a lot of titles for this, but Tiger Woods has started tweeting on Twitter. I’d be interested to read Tiger’s tweets, provided they were about behind the scenes stuff and thoughts on tournaments etc, which weren’t covered in his pressers.
Here’s your chance to get some fine jewelery from Tiffany & Co., Harry Winston and Cartier.
Reports are surfacing that Tiger’s former wife Elin Nordegren will be auctioning off her jewelery from Tiger through auctioneer Sotheby’s.
Proceeds of the expected $2.5 million take will go toward a mental health clinic Elin wishes to start, as well as to other charitable causes.
Furky wins PGA Tour POY
Congratulations to Jim Furyk, winner of the PGA Tour player of the year. Well done. Bravo! Bravo! I predicted Jim would be the man a while back. Isn’t it great that you can make predictions, but only brag when they’re right?
Kuchar wins Vardon and Palmer awards
My friends at Bridgestone Golf must be very excited. Their man Matt Kuchar won the Vardon Trophy (for lowest scoring average on the PGA Tour) and also the Arnold Palmer Trophy (winning the most money at $4.1 million, on the PGA Tour).
Matt Kuchar must be feeling the mojo of having me stand three feet behind him at the Tuesday Masters practice round on #15. That’s why he played so well from that point on. He had HOG mojo. I’ll take the credit.
Speaking of awards, give the Byron Nelson to Freddie Couples
Speaking of awards, another notch in Bridgestone’s cap is credited for Fred Couples, who won the Byron Nelson award. That award is for the lowest scoring average on the Champions Tour. Freddie shattered the old scoring record of 68.58 by averaging an amazing 67.97. It must have been the shoes.
Whenever there are emails floating around about Tiger Woods home they’re often tied to real estate entities of some sort. I got an email from a guy named Jeff Lichtenstein which had this attachment of Tiger Woods house, with the new golf layout etc. Needless to say, this pad doesn’t suck.

If you are considering playing this course, you might want to wait 2-3 weeks. It looks like the greens have just been punched and sanded…
Tiger Woods Home – November 2010 – Click to view larger version
Jeff is with Christies / Great Estates and Illustrated properties and/or jeffrealty.com. At the risk of posting a copyrighted photo without permission I’m mentioning his name, and here’s a link to an analysis of the property and the practice facility by Cary Lichtenstein. I don’t know the relation but I’m sure there is one.
I’ve got many more images of Tiger Woods, Tiger Woods homes both real and fake in the HOG Tiger Woods image gallery.
Rory McIlroy has joined Lee Westwood and Martin Kaymer in saying “no” to the PGA Tour and the FedEx Cup for 2011.
If you’re not playing well in the States it can be a lonely place. But if you’re not playing well on the European Tour you still have plenty of mates to hang out with.
The $10,000,000 FedEx Cup prize isn’t enough to entice these great players to play here full time. They don’t like being forced to play in events they don’t want to play in, to be eligible for the Cup.
I wish I had enough dough in the bank and a good enough golf game to be able to say no like that… Maybe in my next life.
