Tiger's Now Laying 10

Your evening Tiger update: The British press has joined the fray, and the count of alleged mistresses has now jumped to double-digits: 10 in all, or eight fewer women than majors won by Jack Nicklaus.

Let's adjust the Tiger Paramour-O-Meter accordingly:



• RadarOnline is reporting that Elin has moved out, but Tiger's reps are keeping it quiet because "they don't want any publicity about what is going on in the marriage."


• Tiger's mother-in-law, Barbro Holmberg, late of Sweden's Ministry for Foreign Affairs, has arrived.

I don't think my brother or Woods ever managed to get over the idea women wanted to sleep with them. Despite their successes, despite the outward perfection of their lives, both of them still harbor a deep-seated, childhood insecurity that's only been made worse by middle-age vulnerability, by knee surgeries and receding hairlines. My brother and Woods both had affairs because they were looking for a validation that only sex with strangers gave them. That Woods's preference in road beef is, at best, medium-rare, just goes to show: In his mind, every time he made a new conquest, it was like the president of the chess club rocking the big-tittied cheerleader under the bleachers. Every hookup was another chance for him to prove to himself that he wasn't what he remembered he once was
