Soon-to-be-retired ESPN columnist Rick Reilly, while promoting his new Tiger Woods‘ book, “Tiger, Meet My Sister… And Other Things I Probably Shouldn’t Have Said,” alluded to Conan this week, that the iconic and very rich golfer is a super bad tipper.
Among other things, Reilly said that it’s a miracle for Woods to shell out more than $2 dollars for a tip, that is, if he’s carrying cash at all.
“I’ve covered [Michael Jordan] his whole career, but I don’t think he can hold a candle to Tiger Woods. You need a court order to get Tiger’s wallet open. It’s unbelievable. He’s always like, ‘I don’t carry cash.’ I know a valet here in town that stands between Tiger and his car just to get his $2. He’s really terrible. I’ve seen Phil Mickelson buy a 50-cent cup of a lemonade from a little girl and give her $100. When he leaves the Masters each year, he gives the guys $2,500. Tiger gives them nothing. I was with Phil once, and it was raining. He sees a homeless guy, and he gets out, parks his car and gets out his umbrella to give to the guy. Tiger would charge the guy!” source
