Tiger Woods -- No Stranger to Keeping Secrets

12/15/2009 3:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tiger Woods had crisis managers bail him out of sticky situations with women long before Rachel Uchitel became a household name -- sources tell TMZ.

Several years before Tiger Woods married Elin Nordegren, his lawyers and PR firm got him out of a messy situation over an Orlando woman who hooked up with the golfer.

We're told Tiger had met a cocktail waitress at an Orlando bar and the two drove off together. They pulled over and stopped on the side of a remote road. A cop car drove by and the officer became suspicious and approached the vehicle. We're told there was an exchange between the officer and Tiger. It does not appear anyone was arrested or cited.

One of Tiger's handlers at the time tells TMZ Tiger's PR firm and lawyer were worried the woman might sell her story and they "negotiated a carefully-crafted settlement" with her -- in the end, she never sold or went public with her story.

Sources say there were other situations where Tiger's team resolved messy situations with women that "could reflect negatively on his squeaky-clean image." The reps were especially worried because of the morals clauses in various contracts Tiger had signed.

Nike WILL NOT be dropping Tiger... EVER!

Direct quote from Nike's own Phil Knight....."Tiger's mess is a minor blip"

This story is suddenly boring the hell out of me. The only news I'm interested in is a statement from Elin and thatshe will have sole custody of the kiddos. Eff Tiger Woods. he is far from father material.

DAMN! Those sports agents and sponsors are money grubbing whores. I would not be surprised to hear they buried some bodies. You sports nuts have got to take the hero worship down a notch. No one is worthy of this kind of worship.

I can't believe that I admired this man for so long. I am a former teacher who has students make a video about me and my tigermania and send it to Oprah several years ago. I have trashed all my tiger stuff and even let me dog chew off the face of my build a workshop tiger...down to the red shirt and golf clubs. I poured out six bottles of Tiger gatorade...it was like throwing him out of my life...and I am in the medicare range. Tiger you should be ashamed and get down on your knees and beg forgiveness. You have hurt many, many people not just your precious family. Shame on you!

I could care less about this at this point. I just want to see him play golf. That's obviously all he's good for.

What would Tiger have to do in order for Nike to finally drop him? Commit mass murder or something? They'd probably still keep him on. No more Nike products for me and my husband. There are plenty of other brands.
