Disgusting behavior for a professional golfer. She ought to be ashamed of herself. But I guess that's what you can expect from a 21 one year old. And who had no business hanging out getting intoxicated with a married man. I'm sure George is going to feel the heat too. How humiliating. What an embarrassment to his family. If you're going to being cheating and I'm assuming he was. Next time pick on someone your own age and hire a driver. Don't let the stupid Ho(who in my opinion that's what she is now going out with a married man)you're about to go to bed with do the driving.

Good luck with that. I live in Bradenton, FL, just a few miles north of Sarasota and the 12th Judicial Circuit court is the TOUGHEST court to fight a DUI in, the State's attorney has made it his life to not let anyone get away with DUIs like they do in California or Nevada. They cross their Ts and dot their I's to make sure the paperwork is in order and not lost.

black man's kryptonite? dumb little white girls. I'm sure his wife doesn't mind him partying it up with a girl half his age.

Look at all the NFL players with multiple kids from multiple women.

Who was george's best friend? Steve McNair who was murdered by his 21 year old little mistress on the side.
