A video of Tiger Woods hitting a drive at Medalist Golf Club on Saturday was shared on social media on Sunday evening – but it has since been deleted due to being an “unauthorised video” According to the popular @TWLegion account on Twitter, Woods has this week been walking the golf course at Medalist back home in Florida.
It is understood that Woods’ caddie Joe LaCava has also been out there with him.
Tiger Woods, unauthorised video
The @TWLegion account claims “a bunch of college kids” were out practising at Medalist GC on Saturday afternoon and that it looked like “somebody took an unauthorised video” of Woods hitting a drive.
From the video we caught on social media earlier today, someone had taken a video of Woods from quite far away, almost like they were hiding in the bushes as to not be caught. ù He is among the most successful sportsmen ever, as well as one of the richest in the world.
When it comes to firsts Tiger Woods is always present: 15 majors won, 110 professional tournaments, the most successful golfer in the history of this sport. Statistics that explain why he managed to stay at the top of the world ranking for 683 weeks (of which 281 consecutive) and above all because in 2014 he became the first sportsman in the world to have broken the billion dollar barrier.
Astronomical figure that also justifies the fact that Tiger Woods can afford a yacht like the Privacy, a real fairytale boat. And obviously we are talking about something that has cost a lot. If you imagine a luxury yacht and some comfort on board, then Privacy has it.
48 meters long, with a total area of 600 square meters, this yacht was purchased by the golfer in 2004. Equipped with five cabins capable of accommodating a total of ten people, she also boasts four quarters for nine crew members.
Tiger Woods usually calls it “my dinghy” even if everything looks like a dinghy: with a cruising speed of 18 knots, he also has a gym on board where the golfer keeps training. Woods, in fact, prefers to stay on this yacht during the tournaments held in New York.
With cherry wood interiors, Privacy also features an elevator for three people, a huge Jacuzzi, large enough to accommodate eight people, and the inevitable cinema room and corner bar. The extra something for this mega yacht is provided by the area that Tiger Woods wanted to be dedicated to scuba diving: this also explains the presence of a decompression chamber (inflatable) and an area dedicated to filling oxygen cylinders.
The luxuries are also completed by three jet skis and two scooters for short shore excursions. Obviously, all of this has a price: Privacy cost 17 million euros and its annual maintenance amounts to 1.7 million euros.
