Tiger Woods avoided a golf tournament in Thousand Oaks this week, even though it was raising money for his very own Tiger Woods Foundation. After last week's solo car crash that raised questions and ultimately led to the unveiling of his alleged Los Angeles mistress of 31 months, cocktail waitress and reality TV contestant Jaimee Grubbs, the "media circus"--as the LA Times puts it--has come to Los Angeles. A voicemail allegedly left by Woods on Grubbs' phone has been spreading like wildfire.

A press conference scheduled this morning by attorney Gloria Allred, who is representing a different alleged mistress, Rachel Uchitel of New York City, was a abruptly canceled and now speculations say Woods' camp is offering $1 million to keep quiet. And if that wasn't enough, there is apparently another misstriss: Kalika Moquin.

True or not, this is all a bit ridiculous. In the end, it's Woods family and those who benefit from his foundation that are hurting. ESPN said this week's fundraiser tournament will suffer because of it.
