Tiger Woods appears to have very little confidence on the golf course these days, struggling to even make the cut at most events he enters.
But the former top-ranked player in the world has come out with a very confident statement, strongly denying a National Enquirer story that made the Internet rounds on Wednesday.
It alleges that Woods cheated on Lindsey Vonn with Amanda Dufner, the ex-wife of PGA Tour veteran Jason Dufner.
“This is 100 percent false,” Tiger’ agent, Mark Steinberg, told The News York Post. “Absolutely zero truth to the rumor.
The timing of the story does seem a tad off, as Woods supposedly invited Dufner to stay with him while he practiced for the U.S. Open in Seattle last month.
But Woods and Vonn had already split by the time that Major Championship rolled around.
"I couldn’t deny this more vehemently,” Steinberg also told Golfweek, adding of Woods and Dufner:
“There is less than zero strand of truth to it. …They are not even acquaintances.”
Considering how strongly Vonn praised Woods in a statement on Facebook announcing the couple's break-up, we probably believe the golfer in this case.
But we hope he understands why his credibility when it comes to cheating must always be called into question.
