Tiger Woods seemed destined to eclipse Jack Nicklaus' record of 18 major titles. However, Woods’ journey went awry due to his struggles with nymphomania, chronic back pain and substance abuse. Nicklaus believes that his mark remains intact because he was blessed with long-term healthiness.
"I was just lucky from a physical standpoint," said Nicklaus, 77.
"I never really had many injuries. Early on in my schedule, I sort of focused on the major championships and I felt like my year was four tournaments. When you do that, you're not abusing yourself too much. You can play a longer time.”
While multiple back surgeries certainly hindered Woods’ game, his unbridled womanizing also caused an array of problems. Woods, who has won 14 majors and none since 2008, was infamously unmasked as a serial adulterer in November 2009. Eventually, Woods admitted to cheating on his gorgeous wife, Elin Nordegren, with dozens of floozies.
"I know I have bitterly disappointed all of you," Woods, 41, said in February 2010.
"I had affairs, I cheated. What I did was not acceptable, and I am the only person to blame. For all that I have done, I am so sorry. I owe it to my family to become a better person, I owe it to those close to me to become a better man. I have a lot of work to do, and I intend to dedicate myself to doing it. I ask you to find room in your heart to one day believe in me again."
Nearly eight years after Nordegren wielded a golf club as a weapon, let’s enjoy 15 seductive photos of some of Tiger Woods’ mistresses.
15 RAYCHEL COUDRIET
Granted, this photo of Raychel Coudriet isn’t exactly risqué. Nonetheless, the specifics of Tiger Woods’ unprotected intercourse with a then 21-year-old Coudriet are beyond salacious.
“(Rachel) was infatuated with (Tiger). They exchanged phone numbers . . . then he began texting her,” said the source.
“The two of them had sex on a couch for hours — right next to a crib for Tiger’s children. The crib made Raychel feel guilty — that she was having sex with a married man with children. But she was smitten.”
Although Coudriet was apparently ashamed of the session, Woods continued to send her lewd text messages.
“When are you coming home again? I want to see you. What are you doing right now? Are you touching yourself? I want to f- – – you,” according to the report.
14 MINDY LAWTON
Tiger Woods had adult relations with a Perkins waitress in Orlando named Mindy Lawton while Elin Nordegren was pregnant. Lawton was admittedly enamored with Woods’ reproductive organ and agreed to have sex without a condom.
"He wanted that last piece of booty before he could go to his tournament. To make him shoot better,” said Lawton, who also divulged that she was menstruating during their first tryst. “(Woods’ penis) was the biggest I've ever seen.”
Lawton’s sister, Lynn, recounted details of Woods’ interactions with Nordegren at their favorite nearby diner.
“Mindy said he and Elin seemed disconnected,” said Lynn, a primary school teacher in Orlando. “There would not be much conversation. Tiger would just sit there, looking at Mindy. She doesn't know much about golf, but she did know he was married because Elin was sitting there.”
13 THERESA ROGERS
Theresa Rogers is a hungry cougar who swears she taught Tiger Woods how to become a sexual dynamo.
“She just wanted to be the woman who schooled Tiger in the bedroom,” a pal reportedly said of the then 48-year-old Rogers.
Following a slew of romps, Rogers claimed that Woods was the father of her 6-year-old daughter. A glorified extorter, Rogers purportedly negotiated a $2 million settlement with Woods.
“Theresa was bragging about her affair with Tiger last week. She wasn't making a secret of it,” said a source.
Predictably, Rogers says that Woods badmouthed his stunning wife and only exchanged vows with her to create an image of domesticity. Those are some stunning allegations indeed, but considering all that happened, doesn't seem all that farfetched.
12 RACHEL UCHITEL (THIS BEAUTY WILL BE ON HERE AGAIN!)
Rachel Uchitel is surely Tiger Woods’ most recognized paramour. Uchitel initially gained fame when the New York Post captured her holding a picture of her fiancé outside of the World Trade Center following the September 11 attacks. Often referred to as “Mistress #1,” the former Las Vegas nightclub manager admitted in May 2015 that she’d rekindle with Woods.
“He would have to do some major apologizing to get back in my good graces, that's for sure,” said Uchitel, a 41-year-old twice-divorced mother.
"We both loved each other very much. But it was humiliating and devastating to have to break up that way."
Now, two years after considering reviving her relationship with Woods, Uchitel stated she “(doesn’t) care about Tiger anymore.”
“I’m not like Donald Trump. I don’t scour the Internet for my news,” Uchitel wrote after learning of Woods’ DUI arrest in May. “I’m out of the country. … I’m away with my daughter, I can’t speak about this.”
11 LOREDANA JOLIE
Another one of Tiger Woods’ bedroom conquests, Loredana Jolie, wrote an explosive book detailing her time with the disgraced athlete.
“The largely endowed golfer liked three-ways with women, fantasized about men and was stuck in a marriage to an uncaring gold digger,” Jolie wrote in “The Real Diary: Lessons from the Good Time Girl to Champion.”
Like most strumpets on this list, Jolie lauded Woods’ abilities in private moments.
“When I was having my relationship with Tiger, I was like on the seventh cloud especially from a sexual perspective,” she raves, apparently confusing Cloud 9 with seventh heaven. “There is at least no doubt about the fact that Tiger was awesome in bed.”
Pathetically, Jolie had the audacity to accuse Elin Nordegren for Woods’ unfaithfulness.
“Obviously, they didn’t have such a close relationship because if I was in his house where the hell was she?” said Jolie.
“If I had my husband, I would make sure I know [who] was coming to my house. At that point, I started realizing it was more a less [sic] financial reasons why they were married — she was in it for the money.”
10 JOSLYN JAMES
If Joslyn James hadn’t flourished in the adult industry, she would have made an excellent middle school teacher. James, with enhanced 36E sweater kittens, was curtly told by Woods to remain shadowy during a particular business trip.
“Guys from dubai. Investors. So my agent being suggested that we go back to my room at the mansion for lunch,” texted Woods. “He doesnt know about us, obviously.”
Unfortunately for the fallen star, James apparently failed to follow Woods’ orders and the two were spotted together.
“I told you. Oh my god. I cant believe what just happened,” texted Woods.
“Don't ***king talk to me. You almost just ruined my whole life. If my agent and these guys would have seen you there, ***k.”
9 HOLLY SAMPSON
Ah yes, another star from "the other industry" Holly Sampson had sexual intercourse with Tiger Woods during his bachelor party in September 2004.
"Yeah, I f***** Tiger Woods,” said Sampson, 43, who once appeared on an episode of ABC's "Wonder Years” as Fred Savage's love interest.
"Me and my girlfriends did a bachelor party for Tiger and it was amazing. And then he (Woods) picked me to go in the room. It was pretty simple, straight up sex. I have to say he was really good… pretty amazing. I don’t care. It was fun.”
The 5-foot-5, 110-pound Sampson, who has made 73 films, then raved about Woods’ looks.
“He’s like the whitest black boy you’ve ever met,” said Sampson. “His teeth are perfect and he’s the perfect gentleman. He’s beautiful.”
Take those words as you will.
8 JAMIE JUNGERS
Sin City lingerie model Jamie Jungers isn’t exactly classier, or prettier, than Elin Nordegren. Nevertheless, Woods betrayed Nordegren and bedded a penniless Jungers for almost two years.
“The one time out of the whole year and a half I was with Tiger, I asked him, ‘Can you please help me out?’ ” Jungers said.
“I didn’t give him a dollar amount. I didn’t say, ‘Can you buy me a house?’ I wasn’t specific about what I needed, but I did say, ‘Can you help me out?’”
Woods denied Jungers’ request and she subsequently refused to offer Nordegren an apology. “I wouldn’t want someone to do it to me,” Jungers said when asked if she owed Nordegren an apology. “But I’m not going to take full blame for this.”
7 CORI RIST
Wannabe model Cori Rist was married with a 7-year-old son when she began an affair with Tiger Woods in 2009. Rist’s ex-husband, Neil Santos, discovered “wire transfers [of money] from Tiger to Cori” and almost immediately filed for divorce. Santos used the financial paperwork, and discussed Rist’s chaotic lifestyle, to win custody of their boy.
“(She) put me through hell,” said Santos. “And she’s continuing to put me through hell.”
Somewhat surprisingly, Rist strongly defended Woods after his DUI arrest in May. "People woke up this morning and used this man's life for their daily entertainment,” said Rist, 38.
“I hope everyone will realize there is a human being on the other end of this story…A man who has feelings and two small children who adore him and love him very much. I don't know about anyone else, but I am praying for him. I would encourage people to take the high road here and offer their support."
6 JULIE POSTLE
Former nightclub waitress Julie Postle began banging Tiger Woods after the two met at the Roxy nightclub in Orlando. Hailed as “Mistress #11,” Postle did the horizontal poker with Woods while in a “serious” relationship with her former boyfriend Brian Kimbrough.
“She said she wasn’t pursuing it but [that] she couldn’t stop [Woods] from calling,” said Kimbrough, who served as a bartender at the same nightclub where Postle worked.
“She’d tell me he’d call, invite her out to dinner, invite her to play golf, invite over to his house. She said she wasn’t going, but now that I look back, I’m sure she was . . . And when she called me for the phone records, she admitted it.”
Per usual, Woods told this bimbo that he felt nothing for Elin Nordegren.
“She said Tiger told her that his marriage was for publicity,” said Kimbrough. “She said it was for his image, and the tabloids and wasn’t real.”
5 JAIMEE GRUBBS
Jaimee Grubbs, also known as Jaimee “Blue Sky” Grubbs, reportedly had 20 sexual encounters with Woods over 31 months. Grubbs says she first snuggled with Woods in a hotel room in San Diego.
“'He just grabbed and kissed me and we started taking our clothes off and had sex,” said Grubbs, a Los Angeles cocktail waitress.
“Afterwards, he was like ‘you should go.’ He told me that he has a hard time sleeping in the same bed with somebody. We never talked about golf. Sometimes we talked about his stressful life. He told me his life was overwhelming.”
Shortly after their first romp, Grubbs received a text message from Woods.
"Send me something very naughty," Woods texted. “Go to the bathroom and take [a picture]. I will wear you out."
4 JOSLYN JAMES (TAKE TWO)
Busty adult star and escort Joslyn James hooked up with Tiger Woods throughout 2009. Born Veronica Theresa Siwik in Amsterdam, New York, the 5-foot-4, 115-pound James disclosed racy text messages between her and Woods.
“Next time i see you, you better beg and if you don't do it right i will slap, spank, bite and **** you till mercy,” texted Woods. “Have you ever had a g**** shower done to you? Just morbid curiosity.”
The 39-year-old James responded, “No, I've had baby showers with silver, bronze, platinum decor. Never golden. Planning something for (Elin)?”
“Really. You. You have done just about everything havent you,” replied a surprised Woods. “Never done it. I think i would get stage freight.”
James later messaged Woods that she was worried that he was just using her.
“Baby im not going anywhere or doing anything,” texted Woods. “You please me like no other has or ever will. I'm not losing that.”
3 KALIKA MOQUIN
Tiger Woods would have ditched Elin Nordegren “in a flash” in exchange for sultry marketer Kalika Moquin. Woods and a 27-year-old Moquin rolled in the hay for approximately six months.
“For Kalika, what she had with Tiger was the real thing,” a friend close to Moquin said.
“He professed his love for her and the feeling was mutual. He said he’d leave Elin in a flash if she wanted.”
Moquin gushed over Woods’ prowess in the sack and added that he was dissatisfied with Nordegren.
“Kalika was blown away,” said the friend.
“She said he has a great body and was amazing in bed. They’d have sex three or four times a night. He said Elin was a cold fish and they rarely had sex. He’s apparently in a loveless, sexless marriage.”
2 LOREDANA JOLIE (TAKE TWO)
Genuine sweetheart Loredana Jolie insists that Tiger Woods’ 'fantasies' are “not normal” and rehab will not help him overcome nymphomania.
“Tiger would engage in sex from 9 p.m. until the sun came up the next morning,” said Jolie.
“He likes role-playing, he likes to be the guy in control and wearing a suit while there are girls performing girl-on-girl and guys entertaining guys. Not really sure rehab for sex addiction will help him.”
Nowadays, the former Hawaiian Tropic model is selling wedding dresses.
“The fact that I came across as a home wrecker really put a lot of pressure on me,” Jolie told Fox411.com.
“I do believe in marriages and one day I want to get married myself. The dresses will be privately sold. The dresses are all handmade and they’re very beautiful."
1 RACHEL UCHITEL (TAKE TWO)
Rachel Uchitel naively believed she was Tiger Woods’ lone mistress. Sadly for the Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew reality star, Woods got cozy with a fleet of women. Consequently, Uchitel was left mortified that she contracted sexually transmitted diseases from the golfer.
"Rachel Uchitel has flipped out after learning how many women now claim to have had unprotected sex with Tiger and she is telling friends she will get screened for sexually transmitted diseases,” said sources.
Before the scandal went public, Woods swore he was preparing to dump Elin Nordegren for Uchitel.
"I want you to lay next to me, lay on me or where ever you want to lay," Woods texted. "Why didn't we find each other years ago. We wouldn't be having this conversation."
