The Real Reason Tiger Woods Quit Golf

tiger-woods2WANT to know why Tiger Woods has quit golf? Anorak’s Man in LA knows:

TIGER Woods could have avoided most all of this mess if he had only gotten in front of the story and changed the headline as soon as the corporate gossip site TMZ started posting unfounded rumours and conjecture that odds indicated would pay off (every tabloid journo had already figured that a two a.m. front yard car wreck and a National Enquirer front page mistress story added up to a scuffle with the missus– the only problem was confirming it, a slight nuisance that CNN’s sluttier cousin has a history of ignoring) and mainstream organizations began treating it conveniently as fact.

Sad that a billionaire corporate sports star doesn’t have the advisers or organization to handle a simple problem like that– let alone an understanding with a former nanny wife from who he’s separated for probably six months out of the year.

But in the middle of it all, it’s worth mentioning that it wasn’t the corrupt scumbags at TMZ or any of the attention-seeking sex partners who caused Tiger Woods to walk away from his job and go into deep hiding, but a legendary tabloid television private eye.

Hollywood dick Danno Hanks drove the final nail in the Tiger Woods story when he provided the evidence that backed recent Hollywood madame Michelle Braun’s claim that Tiger paid for her prostitutes. After Danno’s quote hit the wires, Tiger threw in the towel.

As well the superstar should have, because Danno has always known where the bodies are buried when it comes to Hollywood scandal. Along the way in his illustrious and colorful career and lives, he did the undercover work for the tabloid television giants in the glory days of A Current Affair and Hard Copy, earned himself a place in the book Tabloid Baby, including the story of how he came up with wiretapped phonecalls from then-Hollywood madame Heidi Fleiss.

And note it was ABC News that quoted Danno in the hours before Tiger quit.

As OK! magazine reports:

That scandal grew today amid allegations from Hollywood madam Michelle Braun that she arranged meetings with Tiger and at least four prostitutes from 2006 to 2007 for a total cost of $60,000, according to the New York Post.

“’Tiger has been one of Michelle’s clients for years,’ private investigator Dan Hanks, who worked for Braun, checking her clients’ backgrounds, told ABC

“Hanks, who had access to Braun’s client list and spoke with Braun earlier in the week about Tiger, said he knew of an occasion in which Tiger hired three prostitutes at one time for an evening in Las Vegas…” – TB
