Here’s the photo you’ve all been waiting for; what, you haven’t? Well here it is anyway. The National Enquirer — those fun folks who started this whole thing in Australia back in November — have what they say is a photo of Tiger Woods strolling outside a sex rehabilitation clinic in Hattiesburg, Mississippi (no, that’s not it on the right). I’m linking to it after the jump, and like any Bigfoot photo or police mugshot of Mel Gibson, you can examine the blurry image and make up your own mind on if it’s real. Several news sources are trumpeting it as the first sighting of Tiger in the wild since before Thanksgiving, and he’s described as “scruffy.” Well, why not? Gillette was one of the first sponsors to dump him.
Here are the photos. (Please observe the No Loitering sign. Who loiters outside of a sex rehab clinic?).
From Radar Online, which ran the photos today:
These are the exclusive first photos of Tiger Woods in rehab for sexual addiction at a clinic in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. As RadarOnline.com reported he checked into the Gentle Path program, part of Pine Grove Behavioral Health and Addiction Services.
The photos of Tiger appear in the new issue of the National Enquirer.
OK, I’m heading to the Safeway to
steal purchase a copy legally. Anybody want anything while I’m there?
And an eyewitness confirmed there was no doubt that the man in the photograph is Tiger, saying that while he was bundled up, the golfer was recognizable in person.
Tiger is living without a roommate in one of the cottages at Gentle Path. The Enquirer reports that he checked into the six-week program on December 30.
Author Benoit Denizet-Lewis, who has written a book on sex addiction, said earlier this week that sources told him Woods indeed has checked in to the Hattiesburg clinic.
Question: Did the photographer earn $500,000 for his efforts? Sweet payday for a grainy image from a hundred yards off.
