Getting Woods

by | 20th, September 2006


That’s the Star’s front-page headline, and it’s one illustrated by a shot of Swedish model Elin Nordegren wearing a white bikini.

Elin looks like a fantasy caddie as she sucks on a blade of grass, doubtless deciding on the direction of the prevailing winds as she directs Tiger to the correct wood.

Inside the paper, it’s “THE RIDE HER CUP!”, a play on words on the Ryder Cup, the golf contest between teams from Europe and America which begins on Friday.

And, yes, Woods is America’s biggest star. And these supposed pornographic snapshots of his wife have caused him to go about “roaring with rage”.

Readers of the Dubliner, an Irish magazine, are treated to shots of a woman said to be swimwear model Elin and the headline: “Ryder Cup filth for Ireland.”

It goes on to say: “Most American golfers are married to women who cannot keep their clothes on in public. Is it too much to ask that they leave them at home for the Ryder Cup?”

It continues: “Consider the evidence – Tiger Woods’ wife can be found in a variety of sweaty poses on porn sites.”

Sensational. And wrong. The pictures of a topless Elin are fakes. And in a game of spot the difference, the Star reproduces two of the fake pictures alongside a shot of a “The Real Thing” (a picture of Elin covering her naked chest with her arms).

And all done in best possible taste…
