Tiger Woods reportedly cheated on girlfriend Lindsey Vonn, but some are now casting doubt on the story of the golf pro’s alleged infidelity.
Tiger and Vonn split up last week after dating for more than two years, with reports claiming that the breakup came after Tiger admitted to cheating.
A source told the Daily Mail that Tiger’s infidelity came after he was forced to withdraw from the Farmers Insurance Open in February. The source claimed that Tiger was upset about his setback and looking to blow off some steam.
The report claimed:
“He withdrew from Farmers. You have to understand, while it’s not right, it’s not really wrong either. Tiger isn’t married. He doesn’t really drink or do drugs. So what else does he have when he can’t afford to lose again? He is allowed to find some relief.
“Most men would drink over such losses.Tiger has sex over it. Usually with local hookers whom he pays exorbitant amounts to, probably so they will want repeat business and won’t tell.”
But the report about Tiger Woods allegedly cheating seems a bit far-fetched to some. The Golf News pointed out several inconsistencies in the report, including errors about Vonn’s location. The report claimed that Vonn made sure to wait until she was out of the country to announce the split, but Vonn just posted a picture on Instagram showing she was at Disneyland.
The report point out other errors, including mistakes about Tiger’s performance in the tournament and the size of his divorce settlement.
“Trust this if you want, but, typically, when someone has the goods, they write it better than this,” the report noted.
Whether true or not, the story about Tiger Woods reportedly cheating has already taken on a life of its own. With neither Tiger nor Lindsey offering any kind of explanation the story has spawned all kinds of rumors.
One of those is that Tiger is trying to get back with ex-wife Elin Nordegren, who herself is recently single after getting out of a long-term relationship. Tiger and Elin have maintained a close relationship for the sake of their kids, but rumors have occasionally surfaced that they are trying to rekindle their romance.
The gambling website paddypower.com, which has been known to list odds for celebrity-related topics, has posted its own odds on who Tiger will take for his next girlfriend. Elin Nordegren topped the list at 7-1 odds.
Like the report that Tiger Woods cheated, there is no corroboration to reports that Tiger and Elin are getting back together.
