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.

Too bad this all had to happen.The only thing I have to say is stay away for some time. Take care of your personal life and works things out. Just make sure your family is protected and safe from harm.

Screw Tiger Woods, he brought on his problems HIMSELF! They should not have extra security for him. In 1977, Hubert Green was getting serious death threats during the US Open Tournament - but WON it.. with on extra security. In 1978, Jack Nicklaus had several threats of assassination during the final two rounds of the Masters. And TIGER has extra security to avoid HECKLERS? WAHHH! Poor Tiger!



By the way...

What a country we live in when people feel they have a right to get up in someone else's private business. He doesn't have to explain himself to anyone but his wife. wonder how these reporters would feel if we discussed their private lives? he isn't the first nor will he be the last to cheat on his spouse, and from what I read these days women are cheating as much or more than men. His wife knew what she was getting, he got her didn't he? the baby sitter makes it big. If I were him I'd never play golf again and screw em all. The more he makes in money the more the women will get....People talk about someone you actually know.

I would love to be Tiger lady. But he only want barbie doll. Not a sister. And people need to leave him alone. What's is done is done. End of this crazy story about his sex life. Hop on to something else.

To Lady Carolyn at post # 46 above ... in addition to myself, I'm sure that there are "many" who would find much pleasure, were His Highness to take on someone like you as his lover ... God bless you and praise be. Unfortunately that is not likely to happen, as Tiger Woods detests both his African blood and anything connected to black culture ... he is a cruel and racist pig, completely intoxicated on his own self-worth and grandeur. However, I've just read a passage in my Bible, which I believe may assuage some of the disappointment that you might be feeling. It reads: "Invite the adulterer to a grand feast and there offer him a generous fare, laced with poisons ... as he suc***bs to God's will, you must hurl stones and cedar logs upon him ... whence the serpent has expired, you may then burn his fat, which will produce an aroma that is very pleasing to the Lord".
