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.

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.  Click the picture to view a larger version.

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…

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.

Tiger Woods is #2 – Are the world golf rankings a joke?

Is everyone OKAY? Anything new? Has hell frozen over? Planets all aligned correctly? Aliens landed?

Lee Westwood has taken over the world #1 spot over Tiger Woods as of yesterday. That may only last for one week though as Tiger, Phil Mickelson and Martin Kaymer are all playing in the HSBC Champions event. With a win in the HSBC, any of those three could take over the world #1 spot.

Are the world golf rankings a joke?

The world rankings have become a bit of a joke in my opinion. They haven’t really reflected who the #1 golfer in the world is for at least a year. My pal Armchair Golf Blog points out that Jack Nicklaus doesn’t care much for the world golf rankings either.

Who has played the best golf over the last year?

And yes, I too wonder how someone who hasn’t won a major can be world #1, though there was a time over the middle of this season when there was nobody on the planet playing better overall golf than Lee Westwood. You could have given Jim Furyk a few votes though.

Who does it really matter to the most?

Who would care about the rankings? I’d say the media, because they need something to talk about. Writers (and bloggers) need something to write about. I just typed four paragraphs about it.

I doubt Tiger Woods cares a bunch, except for the fact that he’ll have to endure the agony of fielding hundreds of dumb questions from the media about it.

Equipment manufacturers would really eat it up if their staff player was #1. So for now, PING (Westwood) has to be riding high. Nike, not so much.

World Golf Rankings Below

If you want to see who is in the top 50 world golf rankings, read below. I’ve read it twice now and I’m not happy. My name wasn’t in there.  It is also interesting to note that only four of the top 10 players in the world are from the USA.


Tiger Woods WILL drop from #1 world ranking on Halloween. His ghoulish replacement is unknown.

Due to his schedule and the way the world golf ranking works, it is a FACT that Tiger Woods will drop from the #1 ranking in the world on October 31st.

In all likelihood Lee Westwood will become world #1 on 10/31.

Martin Kaymer (winner of the 2010 PGA Championship) could take the #1 spot though if he were to win the Andalucia Valderrama Masters.

I thought this Tiger Woods photo was fake – Cigar Guy

I hadn’t posted this photo because I thought it was fake, but apparently it isn’t.  Photographer “Mark Pain” (quite the pun, considering this situation) snapped this image right before a Tiger Woods’ chip shot hit him in the chest and fell to the ground.  So was Tiger that far off or did the photographer get in the way of the shot?  And nobody has mentioned whether or not Tiger’s caddy Steve Williams smashed the photographer’s camera…

Update:  There’s a guy on the right with a mustache and a cigar.  This guy has been photoshopped into hundreds of photos all over the net.  “Cigar Guy” has become quite a rage….  Read the next post.
