T Woods to become a billionaire........

Not too shabby for knocking a little white ball around a golf course. I wonder if he has run his numbers through firecalc to see if he can retire?

Woods will become world's first billionaire athlete by 2010, report - Golf - Yahoo! Sports

Give him time, they've only been together 4 years.........

Plus, he said no nannies for him, he wants to "be there" like his dad was for him..........

Instead of the helipad in the middle of that hole, they should have the helicopter land in a bunker. Also, what happens if you are hitting an iron or something and the ship speeds up or slows down? It has to completely mess up your precision!

I also heard he has never been been arested for DWI, cocaine possession, pandering, dogfighting, assault, illegal firearms possession, evading taxes, child support, murder, or rape.. I wonder how he can sleep at night with all that peer pressure?

That's it, Tiger for President. Can't be bought off, no skeletons, stays calm under pressure, and T.V. interviews with the first lady would be watchable again!

I know you are joking, but it wouldn't surprise me in the least if he decides to go into politics one day. When/if he passes Jack's record, I think his desire for golf will fade. I can see him playing and winning enough to set a record no one could reach and then calling it quits. He could easily be done with golf by 40. He will be a multi-billionaire by then and politics could be another mountain to climb.
