“We try to keep it positive,” Walters said.
Fred Couples, taking the appearance money to show up in Australia this week, also weighed in on Tiger. As an aside, is there any golfer who compromised his career more in the search of cash than Fred Couples? He must rank up there with the most talented golfers who delivered the least in their career. Anyway, Freddie had this to say (source):
“When Tiger gets going again our (US PGA) Tour will get going at a better rate,” Couples said ahead of his appearance at this week’s Australian Open in Sydney.
“We were blessed to have him come on about 12 years ago and dominate and sponsorships, everything went up.
“He was here (in Australia) two weeks ago and I’m sure there was a buzz, but maybe not as much as before because he hasn’t won two majors and seven other tournaments this year.
“He’s still the same golfer, just not playing like he did last year for a lot of reasons.
“One would be his golf game, but another would be a lot of emotions going on, a lot of tough times, and I personally think next year if everything is going okay in his life he’ll turn his game around and start playing better.”
Then there’s this tale about Tiger’s alleged mistresses having their own get together this week in LA. I guess it is kind of like an opposite field event, the bimbo version of the Reno-Tahoe Open.
The get-together will reportedly be hosted by Holly Sampson, Jamie Jungers, and Joslyn James at a Los Angeles restaurant.
The party will celebrate the one-year anniversary of Woods’ car crash at his Orlando home that led to more than 15 women coming forward to claim that they had had affairs with the billionaire sportsman.
I think the restaurant’s owner is unlikely to see the guest of (dis)honor:
The restaurant’s owner Routz Yaz told RadarOnline: ‘It’s going to be a great night. I’m excited to have the girls here.
“We’re going to have signature cocktails, great music and complete blast as only Holly, Jamie and Joslyn can throw. Tiger is also welcome to join the party.”
He added: ‘And since he’ll be at the country club right down the street, he’s welcome to come on it and have free cocktails on the house.”
Oh, and in case you are interested, Woods is hosting his golf tournament this week. Hopefully he demonstrates some return to form, the first step in making all of these stories start to disappear.
