Tiger Woods has certainly gone through quite the journey over the years. When the public first met him as a fresh-faced teenager who was absolutely killing it in the world of golf, they had nothing but admiration. After all, it’s hard to have something bad to say about a sixteen year old who breaks records and has the kind of pro sports career most men could only dream of. He was talented, he was beloved, and he was earning sponsorships left, right and center. He had many, many successful years where he brought in the big bucks, won countless tournaments, and even helped introduce a wider audience to the sport of golf.
And then, it all started to unravel.
There were always a few things about Tiger Woods’ personality that rubbed some people the wrong way – his confidence often bordered on cockiness, and he definitely knew how talented he was. However, the troubles started when his personal life became more interesting to the tabloids than his tournament wins. One mistress came out to talk about an affair, and suddenly an endless stream of affairs and mistresses and sexual issues came out of the woodwork – and the public’s opinion of the golf legend definitely changed.
Now, just when you thought Tiger might slowly be returning to the top after his fall from grace, he gets arrested for a DUI. Oh, Tiger.
Here are 15 of the most despicable things that Tiger Woods has done over the years.
15. He slept with his neighbour’s daughter
Yep, you read that correctly. The list of women that Tiger Woods has engaged in X-rated activity with is basically endless, but there are some that are more despicable than your average affair. Amidst all the prostitutes and affairs, Tiger Woods at one point apparently slept with his neighbour’s 21 year old daughter. And no, it wasn’t that she was some sort of vixen who just wanted her fifteen minutes of fame, or just wanted to get with a pro athlete. She was apparently incredibly upset when she found out that he was sleeping with countless other women as well, which means he likely tried to play the situation like she was the first one outside of his marriage he had been with, and that he just felt something special for her. Uh, gross. She confessed that she felt violated by what had gone on between them, and the way he treated her. Poor girl.
14. He skipped sleep in order to get busy
Look, everyone has had certain nights where they make an irresponsible choice and stay up late finishing up a juicy book or watching a few more episodes of the television show they’re currently binge-watching. However, we keep choices like that to a minimum because we know that in order to work to the best of our abilities, we need to be well rested. Tiger Woods doesn’t particularly care about that. It turns out that, as many of his mistresses confirmed, Woods would often skip sleep entirely in order to spend more time getting busy. Now, there’s nothing wrong with having a healthy, spicy sex life, but when you have countless people depending on you to perform to the best of your ability, including companies who have put up tens of millions in endorsement deals, it’s just plain rude to jeopardize your well-being just for a little bit of fun.
13. He threw clubs on the course
Most of us have gotten frustrated at work at some point or another. After all, we’re just human. Sometimes if a presentation doesn’t go well, or if a co-worker gets a promotion above you despite not working nearly as hard as you do, it can be incredibly frustrating. Most of us know, though, that you have to put on your adult pants and deal with it – or, at the very least, wait until you’re in the privacy of your own car or home to yell or scream or cry or whatever it is you need to do to unleash those emotions. Tiger Woods wasn’t worried about being a professional. There were many times on the course when, if his shot was bad or he missed a putt or something like that, he’d lash out and slam his club into the ground or throw it or just get aggressive in general. That’s not the image you want to portray as a professional athlete.
12. He faced off with photographers
Look, we get it, it’s probably super irritating to have cameras in your face when you’re trying to concentrate on the task at hand. However, when you’re a professional athlete, it’s kind of something that you need to learn how to deal with. If the paparazzi climb your fence and take snaps of you while you’re at home, in a supposedly private setting, that’s not cool. However, if photographers from sports outlets are trying to take some shots of you as a professional athlete, playing his sport, well… that’s kind of expected. Tiger Woods often let his frustration get the best of him and would verbally lash out at photographers who he felt were interrupting his concentration, and it’s just not cool. It’s understandable to maybe request that they keep it down, particularly if it’s going to affect your performance, but there’s a more respectful way to deliver a message that doesn’t involve yelling.
11. The botched press conference
When the huge scandal with the car crash and suspicious activity came out way back when, Tiger Woods followed it up the same way virtually every professional athlete or celebrity follows up a huge scandal – with a press conference. Press conferences are supposed to help a star deliver a sincere apology to the public, and hopefully regain some of the respect that their scandal caused them to lose. The problem is, Tiger wasn’t quite following the script at his press conference. He obviously had a speech prepared, and he even had Mama Woods in the front row showing her support for her son. However, instead of taking responsibility for his actions and admitting he was the only one to blame, Woods unleashed a few confusing comments, particularly his statement that, “Elin deserves praise, not blame.” Uh… no one was blaming Elin. They were just trying to figure out just how badly you treated her.
10. The Cadillac crash
Ah, the crash – the thing that many identify as the moment where Tiger Woods’ stock started plummeting dramatically. When it hit the news that Tiger Woods had crashed his Escalade in front of his home, the rumors started swirling and people immediately began speculating about what had happened. Add to that the fact that his wife Elin had knocked out a window, either to hurt him or to save him, whichever reports you believed at the time, and you had a whole big mess all over the tabloids. Who knows – if that hadn’t happened, there’s a chance that his mistresses would have stayed silent. For some reason, the whole scandal with the crash and the suspicious reasons behind it opened the door for all of Tiger’s secrets to come tumbling out – and tumble out they did. It turns out, a questionable encounter with his wife was just the tip of the scandalous iceberg for Tiger Woods.
9. The constant foul language
You would think that someone who entered their career in professional sports at a young age would know better than anyone how to maintain a sense of decorum and keep their cool in all situations. After all, when you’ve had the cameras around you since you were a hormonal teenager, you know how to handle yourself, right? Well, not if you’re Tiger Woods. The golf pro had a bit of a reputation for letting his language get far more than PG-rated on the course when he got frustrated. Listen, we all get frustrated at times. However, when you’re a professional athlete, there’s a certain degree to which you’re supposed to keep cool and collected, and not just fly off the handle and start cursing up a storm. Sure, for television broadcasts the network generally caught it in time and bleeped or blurred out any foul language, but still. Not cool.
8. Mistress…after mistress…after mistress…
Having an affair is an awful thing to do. In many cases, a scandalous affair can signal the end of your career if you’re a celebrity. Or, at the very least, you’ll probably lose a ton of fans. However, Tiger Woods didn’t just have one affair, as most people will know. He had one, then another, then another… After the first woman stepped forward about her X-rated activities with the married pro golfer, an endless stream of women followed in her footsteps. The total varies, but most estimate it at around 12 women – and we’re willing to bet that there were probably a lot of women who just didn’t feel comfortable stepping forward. All the while, he had a devoted wife at home with his children. That’s not just bad decision making – it’s despicable decision making. Honestly, we wouldn’t blame Elin if she had busted out those golf clubs a few more times after that and slammed a few of his prized possessions. Big screen television, perhaps?
7. He ditched Lindsey Vonn when she got injured
Somehow, after his gorgeous supermodel wife divorced him for all the scandal and infidelity, Tiger Woods managed to convince another smoking hot blonde to date him – professional skier Lindsey Vonn. Vonn is a gorgeous woman who could have her pick of basically any guy in the world, and for whatever reason, she picked Tiger. Hey, the heart wants what it wants. And, just like Woods, Vonn went through some issues with injury and the gruelling recovery that follows. However, while Vonn was recovering and grappling with some serious pain, Woods was out travelling. Vonn was so lonely, she decided to adopt a dog, and often had to have her physical therapist pull her out of bed. Look, we get that it’s tough to put a busy schedule on hold, but the man has millions – you’d think he could charter a jet to check in on his girlfriend every now and then.
6. He pulled out of a charity tournament
Shortly after the scandal with the car crash and the affairs all erupted, Tiger was scheduled to participate in his charity tournament, the Chevron World Challenge. Now, while he understandably cancelled most of his public appearances while things calmed down a little bit after the scandal, you wouldn’t think he’d cancel on charity, right? Oh, that’s where you’d be wrong. Tiger just wasn’t feeling up to dealing with any tough questions or probing eyes, so just simply packed away his clubs and informed the charity that he wouldn’t be coming out. Talk about a jerk! Sometimes you have to suffer through some uncomfortable situations for the greater good, but that’s something the selfish pro golfer doesn’t quite understand. We hope he at least wrote a couple big checks to various charities after the tournament to make up for his no show. Seriously – personal issues aside, you need to honour your commitments.
5. He doesn’t support his fellow athletes
Professional athletes know how hard it is to stay on top. I mean yes, they get paid handsomely for what they do – but they’re also under a lot of scrutiny and pressure to perform. So, you would think they would support one another, right? After all, they know just how hard it is. Well, it turns out that when it comes to supporting his fellow golfers, Tiger woods really doesn’t care about anyone but himself. In an interview with Time, the golf pro admitted that “I can’t remember the last time I watched golf. I can’t stand it… I watched Jason [Day] win the PGA. But it was on mute. It’s always on mute and I have some other game on another TV.” Talk about harsh! Well, we’re confident none of those athletes will be watching any of Tiger’s games now, that’s for sure. What a jerk, honestly! If you don’t have anything nice to say, just don’t admit whether or not you watched it either way.
4. He essentially paid his wife to stay silent
Once all the mistresses emerged and it became apparent what a serious problem he had, it was just a matter of time before his then-wife Elin Nordegren decided to divorce him. Honestly, we can’t blame her whatsoever. The only thing was, they had been married for quite a few years, and had built up a lot of assets together – and she fully intended to walk away with at least some of them. After all, she’d been there supporting him through the years while he was philandering and cheating. It’s only fair. And while a lot of those dealings will forever remain behind closed doors, the rumoured settlement – in the hundreds of millions – was inked with one caveat. His wife was supposed to remain silent forever about Woods’ indiscretions. She did get the children, and managed to get a few rules in place about what kind of women Tiger could bring her children around while they were visiting their father, but still – pretty shady to silence her.
3. He dropped hundreds of thousands on call girls
With the amount of women who came forward claiming to have slept with Tiger Woods, it’s pretty obvious that the pro golfer really had no trouble getting women. However, even that wasn’t quite enough to satiate his appetite. In addition to the mistresses who were willing to sleep with him for free, Woods also apparently dropped huge amounts of dough on procuring call girls for his enjoyment – often ordering more than one at a time. We can’t imagine what Woods would have done if he wasn’t a multi-millionaire pro athlete – given the amount of money he was spending. If he was an ordinary guy, his sexual appetite would have bankrupted him a long time ago. As it is, the fact that his multiple mistresses still weren’t quite enough for him is pretty insane – who knows what would have happened if he hadn’t gone to rehab for sex addiction shortly after the scandal broke.
2. He kept his phone loaded with XXX material
The Rated R saga continues. Whenever Tiger wasn’t with his wife or on the golf course, he was pretty much always with one of his many mistresses. When he wasn’t with his mistresses, he was probably getting busy with a call girl whose time he had paid for. And when there were no women around, he was keeping busy by looking at porn and X-rated content on his phone. That’s right – his sex addiction was so insane that, if he didn’t happen to be with a woman, he was endlessly staring at other women on his phone. I mean, it’s totally nuts. Honestly, given all the scandals and secrets that were uncovered, we’re mostly just stunned at how long he managed to keep everything under wraps. Those were a lot of secrets! Now, if he only practiced golf as much as he engaged in other activities as of late, perhaps he’d be back at the top.
1. He got a DUI
Unfortunately, DUIs are becoming increasingly common in Hollywood, and that’s just sad. Celebrities are so accustomed to being able to buy their way out of anything, or to name drop or call in a favour in order to avoid any consequences, but when it comes to the law, they can be arrested for driving while under the influence just like your any other person. On May 29, Woods was arrested in Jupiter, Florida for a DUI. On the evening of May 29, less than 24 hours after his arrest, Woods made a statement saying that he had been experiencing an unforeseen reaction to his prescription medication, and that alcohol wasn’t involved. We’re not quite sure whether we believe that, but hey – the truth will come out sooner or later. It seems that no matter how hard he tries to hide them, Tiger’s secrets always come tumbling out eventually. It’s just a matter of time.
