Tiger Woods

Used Childhood Friend as Cover

12/3/2009 8:04 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned one of Tiger Woods' employees helped the golfer secretly rendezvous with at least one woman with whom he allegedly had a sexual relationship.

Childhood Friend
Sources say Bryon Bell, a childhood friend and President of Tiger Woods Design, bought a plane ticket for Rachel Uchitel to go to Australia in mid-November to secretly spend time with Tiger.

The ticket was purchased by Bell using a credit card. He also booked a room for Uchitel at the Crown Towers Hotel in Melbourne.

The trip coincided with the Australian Masters -- which Tiger won.

We've learned Bell actually flew with Uchitel to Melbourne and both had rooms at the hotel.

Hmmm......    

I hope she got a few good licks on him. He probably deserves a lot more than what he got. Wonder how Tiger would have felt or handled it if things were turned around and he'd just found out Elin had been having not only ONE AFFAIR.........but three.........that we know of so far anyway. You think Tig would've been okay with that.......no probleemo Elin......just practice safe sex honey???? And, if 3 men aren't enough baby....find you a few more.

Ha.....I hope Elin has been screwing around on the little nasty bastard. That would be the icing on the cake!!!

Tiger and Bill Clinton should make a commercial together advertising condoms and how important it is to wear one.

Tigers kid asks Elin, "is daddy going to play golf today"? Elin answers, "either that or the field".

Tiger seems very cold calculating devious and selfish. Sounds like he got that way from his mom, too. She was in Australia when Tiger and Rachel were hooking up. She doesn't seem to think there is anything wrong with it.

GROSS!    

Tiger is no different than anyone else. In this society everyone will cheat if some pretty piece 'puffs' it up and offers a free one. Is he a saint? NO. He's an $SS. He broke someone's heart(s) and his child(ren) will never respect him. He's just like every other human walking next to us.

The difference? Ones with morals and respect of themselves and their loved ones and those with none. We all have a choice. He chose to be the low life.

142. @Leave Tiger alone already!

In a nutshell, so you DO think he's a role model since you ARE teaching your kids what not to do. So what if we all just said how great he still is and never discussed our feelings on his mistakes. Then, how would you teach your children when the whole world is saying otherwise

Uh, that would be a no. Despite the good attempt at semantics, a role model is described as someone a kid should emulate. None of my kids play golf, so there's really nothing to emulate about Tiger in my particular situation. They can't emulate his character or manhood because we don't know him. The danger of molding your kids after celebrities is the fact that you DON'T really know that person. And if the real person does emerge and it's different from what you are used to, you may not like what you see (perfect example is Tiger). Now, can Tiger serve as an EXAMPLE of how it takes decades to build a good reputation but only the blink of an eye to ruin it? Sure! I never said otherwise. But I DID say that in addition to his recent mistake, I also plan to tell them about the complete man, including the good things he's done, be it golf, or philanthropy, or whatever, not just the cheater all over the news. And I would suggest that instead of judging him, they use his example to learn of the many pitfalls and temptations that exist out there. That's about all Tiger can do for me. But I'm not going to sit here and keep bashing the guy or judging him. All these "pure, holy, sanctified, good christian, church going, blah blah blah" folks are calling for Tiger's head. Obviously, not ONE has heard of or follows Matthew Chapter 7. I'm not the top Christian of the week, but actually knowing God's word, rather than talking out my rear keeps me grounded. Like Tiger, I am FAR from perfect. Then again, unlike many people on here, I never hinted at or acted otherwise.

Tiger, Tiger, Tiger. A little marital trouble is par for the course these days, but this story is getting absurd.

Tiger won all his championships due to high testosterone from cheating:

You would think people would learn -- in this day and age, someone is going to find out -- noone keeps secrets, almost everyone can be bought -- Technology is going to catch you also. So if you are not ready for consciences do not stray.
