Tiger Woods' Sex Scandal

            Tiger Woods has always been a sports icon. To many, he is the world's best golfer, who has overcome many obstacles, including race and age, to establish himself prominently in the world of golf. With 66 tournament wins, including multiple wins at the Masters Tournament, the PGA Championships, the U.S. Open Championships, and the British Open Championships (Golf Legends), Tiger was set up for another great year in 2010. He was on track to surpass the billion dollar mark in career earnings. Instead, with his life turned upside-down after his sex scandal was revealed in late November, he can look forward to an expensive divorce. .
             Heads first started turning in the early morning of November 27, after a neighbor called 911 reporting that Tiger had crashed his Cadillac Escalade into a tree outside his home (Gawker). At that time, it was unknown what had caused Tiger to crash. Some reported that Tiger's wife, Elin Nordegren, had chased him out of the house with a golf club, while others reported that Elin had merely used the golf club to save him from his wrecked vehicle, both of which we now know hold some truth. Two days later, on November 29, Tiger released a vague statement claiming, "This situation is my fault. I'm human and I'm not perfect. This is a private matter and I want to keep it that way" (Gawker), although he never really clarified what exactly the situation was. To silence the speculation, Tiger's alleged mistress, Rachel Uchitel, scheduled a press conference on December 3rd (Gawker). However, the public was highly disappointed when the press conference was cancelled, only to find out six days later that OK! Magazine paid off Uchitel to do an exclusive story with them instead (Gawker). Apparently, Uchitel was not only one of Tiger's mistresses, but she was also setting him up with other mistresses while he was on tour (Gawker). Since the initial incident, alleged mistresses have been coming out of the woodwork.
