Default Tiger's Yacht, "Privacy"

If everyone keeps making fun of him he will just go play golf by himself where he will have some "Privacy?"





























This is his real yacht to "Entertain"

I hope he just comes out and tells the truth.
It's not getting any better the way he is going.
Hate to see this Icon torn to pieces even though he brought it on himself.

Believe it or not, I saw this one (a sistership to Woods' yacht) coming down the Tennessee River past my house back around 2002 or so. I dropped my deck boat from the lift and chased it to get a better look.

The owner was taking it to a UT football game, and it made the six o'clock news when he did. I remember their chopper news guy flying overhead and saying it was the biggest boat he'd ever seen. They had to ferry their passengers on and off with a 46' Sea Ray as they couldn't get it into the docks.

The funny thing is, he could afford to own an older model.

To bad the photo shop has Tiger so big....but I guess they had to do it to show that it was a person.

Nah man, that was a hell of a sight to see coming down the river. I was sitting in my den that afternoon watching TV when I saw it coming. I yelled at the wife, "you've got to come see this damn boat coming down the river".

When it was passing by, I gave it the old thumb test as I knew my thumb would cover about 50 feet of boat in the channel, and this sucker was three thumbs long. Sure enough, when I found out about it on the news, it was 155 feet long. We chased it down and passed it, then we sat waiting for it to come around the bend. Funny thing was, it was probably cruising around 12 knots or so, but wasn't making more than a two foot wake with all that displacement.

We saw it coming back as well, and it was at night. It sure was pretty all lit up. The owner kept it at what was then Loret Marina above Chattanooga.

Oh hell no. That deck boat would run better than 40 MPH.

Ah....the USS Tiger Golf Ship looks like a great course, but a bit narrow, windy, and way to much water for my game....FORE
