Cameron Morfit of SPORTS ILLUSTRATED has some inside the ropes dope about Tiger Woods from “Tiger’s one-time texting buddy Mark Calcavecchia.”
“I didn’t really think about it, but in the course of last year he changed his number five times. The last time he did, I said, ‘Man, you change phone numbers more than I change underwear.’”
Calcavecchia is also the only PGA Tour men’s player so far to go on the record about the love life of the world’s most famous golfer.
“I did know of a girl he was seeing in Phoenix. But I didn’t know the time frame. I didn’t know if it was before or after he was married that he was with her. I knew it was close. It was 2004 sometime. I didn’t think much of it then…”
I’ve heard from multiple sources that Woods doesn’t even own a phone these days. Calcavecchia:
“I sent him a couple of texts right after all this stuff started and obviously he didn’t get back to me. I’m sure one of these days out of nowhere he’ll text me and say, ‘This is my new number.’”
After Calcavecchia pulled back the curtain on Woods to Morfit, I’m not so sure about that now.
