Golf Tourney -- Extra Protection for Tiger Woods

4/18/2010 10:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The golfers aren't the only people looking to knock Tiger Woods off his game at the upcoming Quail Hollow Championship -- officials are beefing up security to make sure the hecklers stay away from the world's most famous athlete. 

TMZ spoke with the tournament's Executive Director Kym Hougham -- who tells us that in light of the drama surrounding Woods, they are taking the necessary steps to make sure he gets through his rounds undisturbed ... which means more hired muscle than usual.

Woods received similar treatment at the Masters -- but hecklers were still able to penetrate the sky.

Round one of the tourney begins April 29.

Tiger needs to divorce this wife that exposed him to shame. She will only give him more and more trouble. He must be very naive or very arrogant to think that his wife is staying with him for love. She is just trying to accomplish something that's it.

I couldn't understand why Tiger didn't just say to his sponsors "Get lost, I've made enough $$$, I'm just going to play golf and try to repair my marriage". Instead he's a whore for Nike! Vanity Fair this month has an article about Tiger Woods that describes a gambling problem. Elin should get out while she can, and take whatever $$$ was promised to her in the pre-nup. If she waits, and more mistresses are paid off, who knows what will be left of his fortune.

WHO is paying for licentious, lascivious, lewd lecher Woods' extra security, and why is it so important to quiet hecklers? Is he the president of the United States? I know he rubs elbows with Obama, but this is ridiculous.



The tax payers shouldn't be paying for his unpopularity when HE is the cause of it. But then I guess the lecher always led a sheltered double life, safe from the real world.

Q    

As much as Woods himself is to blame for that creepy crawly commercial with his HO chasing Father returning from the Dead---dont let Nike's Ad Agency off the hook---Weiden + Kennedy out of Portland has been Nike's Ad Agency for years, and they were the brains of this immoral attempt at trying to sell product over adultery, Ho chasing, and a Dead daddy who chased HO's himself. Shame on them, Woods, and Nike. Phil Knight and those he hires will sell their Souls for a buck, and Knight has claimed for decades now he is a follower of all that is Eastern Mysticism. Since when is the selling of the Soul an accepted practice by any Group? Stay away from Knight, Woods, and Weiden + Kennedy. They are Evil personified.

" Extra ' protection huh ? Tiger Wood's is a wuss / wimp; saw the other day where he made an outlandish accucassation that he was bullied in his kindergarden class by others and his teacher did nothing about it ( and she rightfully so, wants an apology from him for fabricating such a story ).
This whole mess has been going on far too long; IF Woods had had ' fessed up ' in the very beginning, he woold look like / be more of a maninstead of the rich spoiled brat he obviously is. Umm, I wonder IF he used EXTRA protection when he had his golf club out of his zipper with all of those w*x#%s ?
