Alleged Tiger Woods mistress arrested

Posted: 07:43 AM ET

The cocktail waitress whose voicemail from Tiger Woods helped unravel the golfer's sex scandal last fall was arrested in West Hollywood, California, Wednesday night on several driving-related warrants.

Jaimee Grubbs, 24, was expected to spend the night in the Los Angeles County Sheriff's West Hollywood jail unless she posted bail of $30,309, according to a statement from the sheriff's department.

She was pulled over in West Hollywood by deputies who traced the tag on her 2004 Mustang and realized she had three outstanding warrants, all for previous driving-with-a-suspended-license arrests, the statement said.

When she was arrested on February 4 in Beverly Hills, she spent a day in jail before posting a $250 bond, jail records said.

Phil Michelson wins Masters; Tiger Woods finishes fourth

Posted: 08:16 AM ET

We know at least one thing about Tiger Woods that hasn't changed: He still doesn't have to play his best golf to get into contention at a major championship.

Woods proved that with one of the most Jekyll-and-Hyde weekends of his career at the 74th Masters. He made seven birdies in Saturday's third round but didn't break 70 and lost ground to the leaders. His highlight video from Sunday's final round might convince you that Woods shot 64 and won this Masters by six strokes. A package of his bad shots from the same round would make you think he's a 3-handicapper who shot 89. The truth was somewhere in between: this was one of the ugliest rounds of three-under-par you've ever seen.

Skeptics who doubted that Tiger could survive 72 holes of Augusta National this week got a boost right off the first tee when he pull-hooked his opening drive into the adjoining ninth fairway. His 40-yard pitch from in front of the green — a bread and butter shot for an in-form Tiger — was lucky to remain on the back fringe of the green and led to a bogey that put an immediate crimp on his chances to win, and sent exactly the wrong message to the leaders, Phil Mickelson and Lee Westwood, that he wasn't going to breathe down their necks.

Still, Woods still has the never-say-die spirit in him. When he holed out with a wedge from the seventh fairway for an eagle — a kind of I-can-top-you-Phil moment after Mickelson's hole-out for eagle at the 14th on Saturday, the loudest roar of the week — then followed it up with birdies at the eighth and ninth holes, it appeared he might still be a factor. But that was as close as Tiger ever got.

Nike to run first new Tiger ad since scandal

Posted: 09:00 PM ET

CAN TIGER WOODS REPAIR HIS BROKEN IMAGE? WATCH LARRY KING LIVE THURSDAY NIGHT @ 9PM ET TO FOLLOW THE DISCUSSION!

Via Wall Street Journal

Tiger Woods and the voice of his late father star in a new commercial from Nike Inc., one of several new advertising campaigns that suggest the star golfer may be on his way to repairing his shattered image with corporate America.

On Wednesday, Nike was set to begin airing a black-and-white TV spot featuring Mr. Woods looking directly into a camera. In the background, the voice of his father, Earl Woods, seems to be talking to his son about the importance of taking responsibility for his actions, say people familiar with the matter.

"I want to find out what your thinking was; I want to find out what your feelings are. Did you learn anything," the elder Mr. Woods says in the recording.

The ad ends with the image of a Nike Swoosh.

The commercial is Mr. Woods' first new television ad since unflattering revelations about his private life emerged last year. It is expected to run on Walt Disney Co.'s ESPN and Comcast Corp.'s Golf Channel, say people familiar with the matter.

The ad was filmed several weeks ago at Isleworth Country Club, a golf course near Mr. Woods' home in Florida, people familiar with the matter said. The voice of Earl Woods, who died in 2006, was taken from old interviews, one person says, but this person didn't know the original context for the recorded comments.

A spokeswoman for Nike declined to comment. Mr. Woods couldn't be reached for comment.

Woods says he's 'better person' after rehab

Posted: 05:00 PM ET

Augusta, Georgia (CNN) - In his first news conference since scandal broke, Tiger Woods said Monday that the six weeks he spent in rehab after admitting to infidelity changed him. 

"I was in there for 45 days, and it was to take a hard look at myself - and I did," he told reporters at the Augusta National Golf Club as he prepares to return to golf at the Masters. "And I've come out better - certainly a much better person for it than I was going in."

Woods said he will continue therapy and also indicated that he hopes to woo back sponsors who have left him in droves.

"Do I understand why they dropped me? Of course," he said. "I've made a lot of mistakes in my life."

He added, "Hopefully, I can prove to the other companies going forward that I am a worthy investment, that I can help their company, help their company grow and represent them well. I felt like I was representing companies well in the past, but then again I wasn't doing it the right way because of what I was engaged in."

Woods did not answer when asked whether he had taken Ambien before the car crash in November that ultimately led to the world learning about his infidelity.

He simply said the police had investigated the case and fined him $166. "It's a closed case," he said.

Rumors that Woods had used the sleeping aid extensively arose after the crash.

He admitted he was nervous to play in a tournament again, saying, "I didn't know what to expect."

"I've done some things that are just horrible. And for the fans to really want to see me play golf again, that felt great it really did," he said.

Tiger Woods to face media today ahead of the Masters

Posted: 07:57 AM ET

Note: We've got some great guests on LKL tonight to discuss the latest news regarding Tiger Woods and his news conference today – Tune in at 9pmet and let us know what you think about Tiger's appearance today!

If you're curious how Tiger Woods morphed into the sports world's version of the E! True Hollywood Story, the Los Angeles office of Harvey Levin is a good place to start. Levin is the managing editor of TMZ.com, a celebrity website that has proved more difficult for the golfer than any bunker blast from a downhill lie. Staffers of the TMZ newsroom mockingly call themselves members of TNN - as in the Tiger News Network. The site has published nine Woods stories since April 1 alone, and it's sure to have at least one more after Woods holds a news conference Monday afternoon, his first meeting with a room of reporters in months.

"It is mistake to look at Tiger Woods as a sports figure," Levin says. "He is a celebrity. He is not in the niche of sports. Celebrities can be cooks, actors, musicians, athletes or politicians. Each area has an A-list and a B-list, and Tiger is an 'A' and an 'A' across all categories. He is one of the most famous people on the planet, and people are interested."

Source: Elin doesn't want to attend Masters

Posted: 11:54 AM ET

(PEOPLE.com) - While Tiger Woods is preparing to return to golf at the Masters in Augusta, Georgia, on April 8, his wife Elin Nordegren must decide whether to attend the tournament, in what would be a very public display of support for her husband.

And that's just the scenario Tiger's camp would like to see happen, according to a source close to Nordegren.

"Elin does not want to go to the Masters and is preparing for a trip to see her family and friends in Sweden," the source told PEOPLE. "She is also being asked by Tiger to attend the Masters, even if for a half day, to look like she is interested in supporting his return to golf. But she would rather not be there."

Instead, the source believes that Nordegren will continue to keep a low profile and fly a commercial airline to Sweden, where her family lives.

"Tiger's [private] plane is too 'in your face' for her now," the source said. "She really does not want to go to Augusta, and it is easier for her to be far away than home in Orlando."
