More bad news for the world’s best golfer. Tiger woods withdrew from the Arnold Palmer Invitational due to issues in his back according to Fox Sports. He withdrew after 13 holes.
“I personally called Arnold today to tell him that, sadly, I won’t be able to play in his tournament this year,” Woods said on his website according to FOX Sports.
This is around the same time Jason Day also withdrew from the tournament after a thumb injury. This leaves us with many questions. Will he ever catch Jack Nicklaus? Will he even one another major? With the Masters just three weeks away, will he be healthy enough to play at Augusta?
“It’s too early to know about the Masters, and I will continue to be evaluable and work closely with my doctors,” Woods said according to FOX. “I feel badly that I won’t be able to play in this great tournament this week.”
If he does play in the Masters this year then I honestly don’t think he has a chance. He already withdrew once from the Honda Classic and now he withdrew from a tournament that he won eight times as a pro. That’s a big problem since it’s a tournament that he’s so familiar with. I honestly feel that the sunset will be setting for Tiger sometime. He’ll still win tournaments but I don’t know if I believe he’ll win another major and I don’t think he’ll catch Jack. He already left a magnificent legacy though because as soon as he hits 40, he’ll be in the hall of fame in a heartbeat.
Now, some people may say I’m a “Tiger hater” because I don’t think he’ll catch Jack but let’s be honest. True golf fans don’t call people “Tiger haters” or “Rory haters”, etc. True golf fans will give you a legit reason why Tiger may or may not win another major or catch Jack’s record. So to all of you real golf fans out there, you’re all amazing and I love you. My main reason why he might not win another major is simply because of the injuries he’s had plus he’s not the dominant figure he was back in the day. The same goes for any athlete in that situation. It’s not Tiger’s fault, it’s just kind of bad timing. The only thing we can really do is see how well he recovers and see if he’ll be able to play in this year’s Masters. Best of luck to both Tiger and Jason on their recoveries.

First of all, What?! Why?! How?! I don’t know but according to Deadspin and TMZ, model Liz Dickson is suing Playboy and a radio host for a stunt that involved a golf ball, a tee and her booty. It’s pretty obvious that the radio host was apparently trying to hit a golf shot off her booty and must of nailed her cheeks instead of the ball. Dickson has filed a complaint in the Los Angeles Superior Court against Playboy Enterprises and Kevin Klein who is the co-host of the Playboy Morning Show. Liz is looking for $500,000, that’s right, half a mill.
She could definitely shout C.R.E.A.M (Cash Rules Everything Around Me) if she gets that much dough. She’s also seeking “punitive damages” for battery and negligence. It all started long long ago in a land far far away….well at the Playboy Golf Finals in 2012 on March 30th where Ms. Dickson was invited to help host according to the complaint from CBS Los Angeles:
“Dickson agreed to have a photo taken of her lying on her stomach “with her buttocks partially exposed” so that Kevin Klein, co-host of the show, could hit a golf ball put atop a tee that was inserted between her butt cheeks, the suit alleges.
However, Klein missed the tee and “struck plaintiff on the buttocks, causing her injuries and damages,” the suit states.
Dickson suffered pain, suffering, worrying and anxiety as a result of her injuries, the suit states.
Below is a copy of Ms. Dickson’s lawsuit and it says that she sustained severe bodily injuries, a portion that are permanent.”
OK, first of all, how come she didn’t complain about this earlier? This happened back in 2012. It’s 2014. Secondly, why did she agree to do the trick in the first place? Did they force her or something? Did they offer her a ton of money? Because, if you’re trying to hold a tee between your booty cheeks, I’d assume it would be hard to keep the tee steady enough for the guy to take the swing. Also, she would have to squeeze her butt cheeks together pretty tight which I’m sure would be quite uncomfortable. Now, I also got to put at least 50% of the blame on the dude taking the shot. If you’re going to do a stunt like that then KNOW WHAT THE HECK YOU’RE DOING!
Because whipping a golf club around will easily reach over 100 mph so can you imagine the impact….on her butt? A butt injury is one of, if not the most cringing injury I mean…it’s your butt! So, let’s hope that Dickson is continuing to make a recovery and hope nothing but the best for her going forward. Also, let this be a tip to all of you out there. If you’re not a great golfer, don’t hit a golf shot off a woman’s booty. Not your wife’s your girlfriend’s, your female best friend’s, your Mistress’s NOBODY’S! Because injuries like this occur and you live with guilt.

Well, this might be a controversy stirrer for some. Patrick Reed won the WGC Cadillac Championship on Sunday going wire to wire for the victory and afterwards told NBC how great he’s played and where he stands in the golf world.
“I’ve worked so hard, I’ve won a lot in my junior career, did great things in (my) amateur career, was 6-0 in match play in NCAAs, won NCAAs two years in a row, got third individually one year, and now I have three wins out here on the PGA Tour.” Reed said according to GolfChannel.com.
“I just don’t see a lot of guys that have done that, besides Tiger Woods, of course, and, you know, the other legends of the game. It’s just one of those things, I believe in myself and – especially with how hard I’ve worked – I’m one of the top five players in the world.”
Of course the top 5 comment lit up social media like Broadway, the Vegas Strip or Chicago on a summer night. Not to mention the comment where he said not too many guys did what he did might be disrespectful as well. He seems like a pretty nice guy, just those comments were a little too much I mean, your college and junior careers? This is the PGA Tour son! I appreciate his confidence but he’s not top five, not even close. He hasn’t even faced the drama and stress of playing in a major yet. Wait until the Masters come along buddy. Again, seems like a nice guy but he’s young and I guess he let those three wins get to him. Plus, his caddy’s a chick who happens to be his wife so that makes him feel great too I’m sure.
I was listening to a bit of CBS Sports radio and Amy Lawrence even threw him in the same sentence as NFL cornerback Richard Sherman but all she said was “He’s not Richard Sherman but golf’s a gentleman’s game” so it wasn’t a big deal and Amy is a gentle lady so I can understand her comments because she’s full of awesome. Yes, golf is a gentleman’s game and unfortunately we’ve seen some pretty mouthy players over the years including Ian Poulter, Steve Elkington, Rory Sabatinni and Sergio Garcia. Look, y’all are professional golfers making millions of dollars, just shut up and play. As for Patrick Reed, I got two sides of this. I don’t think he’s even close to how the guys I named above are and also, he’s real young as I mentioned and I think over time, that quote will wear down.
In the winner’s conference Sunday, Reed mentioned his personal top five players which included Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Graeme McDowell, and Dustin Johnson and of course himself. It’s easy for us to say hey, this guys a total d-bag but again, this is the first time we’ve heard him say something else and very well could be his last and we should most certainly take that into account.
One thing that Patrick can definitely feel goes about is this. He’s only the fifth player behind Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Sergio Garcia and Rory Mcilroy to win three times before the age of 24. Pretty elite if you ask me.
So, what do you think about Patrick Reed’s comments? Cocky? Just really confident? Leave your thoughts in the comments below! Also, for fun, since Patrick mentioned his personal top five players, why don’t you name yours? Who are your personal top five players right now?

Tiger Woods’ Former Mistress, Joslyn James, is on Government’s Most Wanted List for Being a Terrible Mother
Well y’all, porn star and former mistress of Tiger Woods, Joslyn James has done more than just screw Tiger and other dudes. She made the biggest mistake of her porn career and that’s screwing the government. According to TMZ Sports, James nailed herself on a government “Most Wanted” list for bailing on almost $20,000 in child support for her 14 year old son. What an amazing parent right?! When she gave birth to her son, she was ordered to pay child support to the dad since she was the breadwinner in the relationship. However, despite the thousands upon thousands or even millions of dollars she’s earning, she still decided to play the role of porn star and act her way through the mess but now let’s say the government will definitely be sticking things in her for this account of stupidity.
In her record that is and get this, she’s on the division’s “Most Wanted” list meaning she’s in the top 100 in the state’s 370,000 child support cases according to TMZ Sports. Man, I feel bad for the son, he’s probably like “What the f*#k mom?!?, nothing says I love you son by not paying my child support!”. Sure, some may say that he’s ignoring it right now but 14 year olds are a lot smarter than you think and pay attention to detail. A spokesman DCS told TMZ Sports that the list is “the worst of the worst. It signifies you’ve made no effort. If you’re currently making any payments, you’re not on the list.” That’s just awesome! Truly, one of the best mothers anywhere! Of course James’ rep says that she loves her child and that she’s a doting mother.
Yup, of course she is, talking about being biased for your client. Just face the facts, Joslyn is just a crappy mother, I mean it’s possible that she really does love her child but if this was true then why wouldn’t you pay child support when you work in the porn industry which makes tons and tons of money. It’s an ENTERTAINMENT business, she has money. Plus, you can’t tell me Tiger didn’t lend her some money when they were twisting the sheets. $20,000 should be pocket change for this woman. I mean, top 100 on a “Most wanted” list? Seriously? All that porn work has been messing with her head apparently. Well, I guess Tiger had a thing for the baddies huh?

Our favorite golf chicka continues to shine as she won the HSBC Women’s Champions in Singapore and how she did it is what was the amazing part. Paula nailed what any of us what have thought as an impossible putt as it was a massive 75 feet, that’s right, 75 feet! Dude, is you for real?! If I was Azahara Munoz (Her opponent at the time), I would have been like “No way! You have GOT to be kidding me?!?!”. This was Paula’s first win in almost four years despite playing solid golf. Here’s the video below so please be prepared to NOT understand the greatness of this putt as you stare at the screen in daze and amazement as your friends/family/co workers look at you like you’re insane as they reach for the phone as they try to call a doctor to help you..well, you know, here you go!

Tiger Woods Might Be Focused More on Money Than Prestige as He is Urged to ‘Respect’ the WGC-HSBC Champions
The WGC-HSBC Champions tournament has been quite a popular one and golf’s biggest star hasn’t played in the event in a couple of years. Instead, Tiger Woods has decided to play in exhibitions that offered solid payouts. HSBC’s sponsorship chief has urged Woods to respect the bank’s large investment in the tournament and play the event this year instead of “meaningless money-making opportunities”. HSBC’s global head of sponsorship Giles Morgan said that the bank had “had words” with the different golf tours about impressing on players the importance of appearing at the sport’s biggest events according to Yahoo Sports.
“I do think the tours — and I think the tours are working on this — should make sure that there is respect to the tournaments,” Morgan said in an interview in Singapore according to Yahoo Sports.
“As opposed to playing in meaningless… money-making opportunities around the World Golf Championships (WGC).”
Morgan also added: “It’s up to the tours to enforce the criteria to their membership. And we’ve expressed our position to the tours, which is that we know they can’t enforce their players to play and that’s fine, we understand that.
“But we do think that players need to be respectful of… these major events (which) are really at the top and the pinnacle and the lifeblood of the sport.”
So, this situation feels like it can go both ways. Yes, it’s kind of disrespectful to not play in a golf tournament that people work hard to put together but at the same time, the golfers can do whatever they want. HSBC gets plenty of golfers to their tournament but I understand that this is Tiger Woods we’re talking about and the more Woods is in the tournament, the more boost the tournament gets. The question is, why hasn’t Woods been playing in this tournament? Is it a money issue? Because if it truly is then that’s a shame on Woods’ part since the man just earned over a billion dollars for his career. However, could it be a greed thing on HSBC”s part as well? Or do they really want more players to play to help bring more fans to the event? The tournament is already highly popular but I guess I can kind of see the frustration from Morgan.
I’d too be wondering why a player of Woods caliber would play in any other tournament but mine but not in a selfish way but in a sense of “Man, am I doing something wrong with this tournament?”. Mr. Morgan should probably chill out though I mean, Woods is only one golfer out of the several that join the tournament plus, the HSBC Champions is still one of the bigger tournaments in the world so he should just let it go. Besides, it’s only been a two-year absence so I don’t really see the big deal but it can honestly go both ways considering Woods was taking part in supposedly “meaningless opportunities”. Again, if Woods was missing out on the HSBC because of money and nothing else then he should be very ashamed of himself as he is easily one of the richest people on earth. So, what do you guys think? Is Tiger Woods losing respect for the HSBC Champions? Is Giles Morgan over reacting to the situation? Maybe Morgan’s comments are kind of knock to the players who are committed to the event? Who knows, but please leave your comments below on this situation!
