Vanity Fair: Tiger Woods Laid Bare

By admin

Tiger Woods Vanity Fair cover

Tiger Woods is no stranger to being on front covers at the moment. Despite recent…shall we call them ‘challenges’… to his popularity US Vanity Fair’s February issue joins the throng by leading with a photo of the fallen golf star lifting dumbbells semi-naked.

The “raw, never-before-seen” photos, which will hit newsstands next Tuesday in the UK, were taken by photographer Annie Leibovitz before the car + crash + golf club + sex scandal.

Buzz Bissinger’s article that accompanies them then dwells on the “tales of kinky extramarital sex” in lavish detail.

The Pulitzer Prize winning journalist writes: “Tiger’s story has been driven by sex, tons of it, in allegedly all different varieties” before listing some of the more colourful stories.

In the “greatest single fall in popularity of a non-politician” Vanity Fair notes how Woods’ US approval rating has plummeted from 87% in 2005 to 33% in mid-December.
