Tiger! The Musical!
Immediately, there is suspicion that TIGER WOODS is not telling the whole story. Women come out of the woodwork, claiming to have had affairs with TIGER WOODS.
We had a good time
And he reached the green
In only two shots
If you know what I mean
We went out one night
And it was such fun
He did what he does:
Shot a hole in one.
He bought me a drink
And he asked me my name
Then he played off the first tee
It was a skins game

Phil Mickelson is 41 years old. His putting prowess has disappeared, he won just one tournament each of the past two years after multiple victories the previous six seasons, and kids half his age are winning majors.
Yet Mickelson is convinced that the PGA Tour hasn't passed him by. In fact, he believes his career is about to get a second wind.
"As good as these young players are, there are glaring weaknesses in their game," Mickelson said Tuesday. "I feel like being out there (on Tour) for 20 years, being able to work with top-notch instruction and have the practice really apply to my performance, that some of my best years are coming."

Mao Zedong's 'ping-pong diplomacy' thawed Chinese-US ties. Could Kim Jong-il's 'golf club diplomacy' do the same for North Korean-US relations?
Call it "golf club diplomacy." North Korean leader Kim Jong-il’s latest charm offensive involves a golf tournament, open to one of his country’s rarest sights: outsiders.
Mr. Kim may well be taking a page from 1971. That's when Mao Zedong, then leader of Communist China, famously invited American table tennis players to his country for a series of matches against local stars of the game. The move, later labeled “ping-pong diplomacy,” led to a thaw in Chinese-US relations.
North Korea's latest attempt at detente – the use of golf to entice a new branch of tourists – represents a departure from decades in the shadows as a notorious recluse. Desperate for foreign currency amid a cut in aid and reportedly crippling food shortages, the unlikely quest for foreign visitors, say observers, will mean striking a balance between tapping the market of adventure tourists and ensuring the visitors gain as little access to locals as possible.
As for the kind of experience tourists can expect? Ian Garner, tournament director, paints a more surreal picture of the course environment.
“The golf course wasn't designed as well as courses on the amateur circuits in Europe and
