THE world’s No 1 golfer may have been both Tiger by name and nature with claims emerging that at least three women have had flings with him.
Tiger Woods’s wife, Elin Nordegren, is also said to have demanded a rewrite of the couple’s prenuptial agreement.
Reports have been rampant that Woods was having an affair with New York nightclub hostess Rachel Uchitel, 34, and now two other women are also being linked to the golfer.
The tabloid article which teed off the Tiger Woods soap opera focused on Uchitel. She said the claims were “totally untrue” and even said she would take a lie-detector test to prove she is “innocent”.
Next up was Jaimee Grubbs, a Los Angeles-based cocktail waitress who claims to have had a 31-month fling with the 33-year-old golfer.
Grubbs, 24, told US Weekly that she and Woods had sex 20 times over 31 months, beginning in April 2007. She also told the magazine that she has saved 300 racy text messages from Woods to prove her claims.
More tight-lipped is Kalika Moquin, another nightclub worker, but this time a marketing manager with a Las Vegas operation.
She’s not talking about everything that happened, not yet anyway. The New York Daily News has Moquin saying: “It’s not appropriate for me to comment one way or the other.”
Yesterday, Woods issued an apology on his personal website.
The statement said: “I have let my family down and I regret those transgressions with all of my heart.
“I have not been true to my values and the behaviour my family deserves. I am not without faults and I am far short of perfect.
“I am dealing with my behaviour and personal failings behind closed doors with my family. Those feelings should be shared by us alone.”
