Tiger Wins A Mil, Takes a Cab

9/5/2006 3:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tiger Woods won his fifth straight tournament on the PGA Tour yesterday just outside of Boston -- and didn't waste much time spending his nearly $1 million check. After finishing his round late in the afternoon, Woods cleaned up, jetted down to New York, and promptly celebrated his extraordinary victory at downtown hotspot Butter.

TMZ caught up with Woods as he finally took leave of the club alone, late last night, striding as purposefully to his ride home as he does up the 18th fairway. But it was extraordinary to watch the world's most famous athlete -- and a man worth a reported $300 million -- hop into a humble New York City yellow cab, just like the rest of us do.

Of course, not all of us could go ahead and buy the cab -- and probably the cabdriver as well -- with the change rattling around in our pockets.

Tiger is a arrogant F*CK! Remember, you are what your mother is and she is Taiwanese. All the ******* try to claim him as black and the Taiwanese say nothing. Nike bought his ass years ago so they could increase the sales of there over priced sport sh*t, please. They have there factories in third world countries and exploit the workers. Why do you think Tiger is a walking Nike billboard!

Zippo, you sound so angry! I don't think Tiger has hidden his mother's origin. She's constantly at golf rounds cheering him on. Relax!

This is for 'ZIPPO'.

Tiger Wood's mother is Thai. And you appear angry and demented. Did you forget to take your meds?

Wow, people hate Tiger for being 1/2 Thai & having a white wife? I thought this was America? Would people be less jealous if he married a black women? This man does a lot of good, haters need to shut it.

I usually get tired of the same team or person winning all the time, but in Tiger's case, the man deserves the accolades. He is truly a force and superior at his game.

you wanted to say nigger so why didn't you just go ahead and get your daily dose of ignorant racial outbursts out.....oops.I rather you talk about it in the open then smile in a black persons face and call them a nigger behind there back.Its unfortunate that you're such a coward you have to resort to this to get a platform to express your racial opinions....behind the safety of a glass screen.

Kill Yourself.
