Tiger Woods kicked off his return to the world of professional golf at the Masters in Georgia today, but not everyone has forgiven - or forgotten - the sex scandal of the past few months...

While playing his first hole, a plane flew over the course with the following banner: "Tiger: Did you mean bootyism?" This, of course, is a reference to when Tiger apologized, explaining that he had "gotten away from my Buddhism."

Later on, another plane flew above with this banner: "Sex addict? Yeah. Right. Sure. Me Too!" Ouch.

Woods did not appear to see either of the banners... but the rest of America did!

Is this poetic justice or just poor taste?

X17 XCLUSIVE - Tiger's Alleged Mistress Will Strip Down The Street From Masters Tournament

Apr 8, 2010 11:42 AM

Joslyn James, Tiger Woods' alleged mistress, will be working the pole starting tonight through Sunday at the Pink Pony strip club - who claim they're "Atlanta's ONLY National Award-Winning Club."

This "club" happens to be only two hours from Augusta National where Tiger and the gang will be hitting the greens for The Masters Tournament this weekend.

As for Joslyn aka Veronica Siwik-Daniels, Pink Pony tells X17online exclusively that for $10 you can watch Miss James take it all off during her stage performances at both 9:30pm and 12:30am. They stressed to us that this will be "full nudity." The club's logo may be deceiving because we're told there are no ponies included in the show, "just a pole."

A few days ago, Joslyn told the world through a press conference that Tiger is "a big, fat liar" and confirmed that she would not be attending The Masters. I guess performing over 100 miles away is fair game.

Tiger Woods' Dad Speaks From The Grave In New Nike Ad

Apr 7, 2010 04:00 PM

Nike has revealed its new TV commercial - which will begin airing today on ESPN - featuring golfer Tiger Woods, in an intense black and white close-up, staring silently at the camera.

And in a bold move, the voice of Tiger's late father Earl can be heard in the background:

    "Tiger, I am more prone to be inquisitive to promote discussion. I want to find out what your thinking was. I want to find out what your feelings are, and did you learn anything?"

Nike has stuck by Tiger's side since the sex scandal broke late last year, but it looks like they aren't trying to shy away from his recent controversies. Will this ad help allow America to forgive Tiger, or does he need to kick butt in the Masters first?

X17 Poll

Does Nike's new ad humanize Tiger Woods after sex scandal?

No. Tiger looks bad; Nike looks bad.
Yes, it makes the viewer feel like people can learn from their mistakes ... and wear Nike while doing it.
I'm ambivalent -- it's just weird!

Tiger Woods and his wife Elin are trying to get the intimacy back in their 5-year marriage, according to Us Weekly.

At Monday's Augusta National press conference, Woods confirmed that his 30-year old wife would not be joining him at The 2010 Masters Tournament telling reporters, "Elin's not coming this week."

Sources tell the magazine, "She's happy this will take some of the heat off her. But at the same time, she would rather Tiger focus on himself, his family and his treatment -- not his career."

As for why the couple has been distant, the source adds, "She's still embarrassed. And they definitely have not been intimate yet."

Just when you thought all of Tiger Woods' mistresses have come forward already...

A source tells The National Enquirer that Raychel Coudriet, a 22-year-old college student, had a one night stand with the golfer last year on a couch in his office... "right next to a crib for Tiger's children."

But when it was revealed over the past few months that Tiger had been sleeping with multiple women, Coudriet allegedly became enraged and confronted him.

"I feel extremely violated by what you did to me!" Coudriet reportedly said, to which Tiger responded with: "Sorry about that."

The source adds that Tiger again did not use a condom and that the sex was "mechanical and unemotional."

So what number is this - 19, 20? And if the story is true, could there be even more mistresses waiting to emerge?

Tiger Woods is not only the #1 golf player in the world, but he also ranks as one of the unsexiest, according to The Phoenix.com's annual top 100 Unsexiest Men list. Ouch!

The uncoveted list also includes John Edwards and Jesse James "by exhibiting spectacularly poor judgment."

The data used to create this list has been compiled from 2009 and early 2010. Also making the unfortunate cut: Glenn Beck, Jersey Shore's Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and Mel Gibson.

Justin Bieber got an honorable mention. How can he make the unsexiest men list when he's only a boy? Poor JB!

Check out the rest of the list after the jump...

Joslyn James Calls Tiger Woods "A Big, Fat Liar"

Apr 5, 2010 12:53 PM

joslynjamespresser.jpgImmediately after Tiger Woods' press conference at Augusta National, on of Woods' more infamous mistresses, adult film star Joslyn James, held her own press conference with her attorney Gloria Allred by her side. She told the media she is still expecting an apology from her alleged former lover, but has failed to receive one.

Allred, who described Tiger as "flawed, deceptive and irresponsible," said that she and Joslyn will not be attending The Masters Tournament, as had previously been announced. Instead, she says Joslyn will "move on with her life" and will "consider returning to her life as an adult film star."

During the presser, Gloria also made sure to repeat the following text that Tiger allegedly wrote to Joslyn:

"You please me like no one ever has or ever will." In addition, Gloria revealed that Joslyn "has some information about some medication [Tiger allegedly took during their alleged trysts]" but that "she's not going to be commenting on that."

Joslyn did say that 10 days after Tiger's daughter Sam was born, she hooked up with the golf star. She's now offering to sit down with Elin to discuss the details of her affair with Tiger.

The adult film star ended the press conference saying: "I will always have feelings for him."

Tiger Woods Calls Rehab Treatment "Personal", Says Wife Elin Not Attending Masters

Apr 5, 2010 11:40 AM


Tiger Woods held his third press conference today since the Thanksgiving Day accident that sparked a sex scandal, and in addition to apologizing once again to his fans, he also apologized to his fellow Masters' players and thanked them for the warm reception he's received at Augusta.

"Coming in today, I didn’t know what to expect, in regarding to reception.  The encouragement I got, it blew me away," Tiger said. "The people here over the years have been extremely respecting, but today was something that touched my heart."

He went on to apologize to his fellow players for enduring the massive amount of attention he's brought with him to the tournament. "I know that the players over the past few months have been bombarded by all of you and the public as well.  But I want to tell the players that they can be left alone and focus on the Masters," said Woods. "I apologize for all of them for having to endure what they’ve had to endure."

Tiger also said that he "missed" the game and the players while he's been taking time off to "look at myself in a light that I didn't want to look at myself," and of course, spending time with his family.

"What I’ve done over the past years has been just terrible to my family," he began. "It’s the pain and damage that I’ve caused.  My wife, my mom, my wife’s family....my kids...I’ll have to explain all this to them.  I have to take full responsibility, I did it."

On taking the sleep aid Ambien:

    "Yeah, I did take that.  I took most of the Ambien when my dad was sick. When my dad died, it was a tough time in my life."

On his stint in rehab:

    "Just prior to Christmas, I made the decision to enter rehab.  Having spent Christmas day with my family was incredible, and then having to go to rehab from there. I missed my son’s first birthday, that hurt a lot, I vowed to never miss a birthday again. I was in there for 45 day and it was to take a hard look at myself. I've come out a much better person for it.  I’ll still continue with my treatment." However, Tiger declined to reveal exactly what that treatment was for, instead saying "It's personal, thank you."

On the reckless way he was living his life:

    "I was rationalizing, I was denying...in total denial at time.  I lied to myself, I lied to others, just because I won golf tournaments, didn’t mean a thing."

In fact, Tiger said he was at such a low point in February that "I had no intentions of playing golf at all. After hitting some balls since then, 'the itch came back.'"

Tiger also revealed that his wife, Elin, will NOT be joining him at the tourney which begins this Thursday in Augusta.
