Tiger hunt proves fruitless for media
HE'S been moving around Melbourne like a ghost, but there are clear enough signs that Tiger Woods’ $3.25 million visit will leave plenty of frayed nerves.
Despite the best efforts of those trained to track down the likes of Tom Cruise and Britney Spears, the world’s most recognised sportsman gave them barely a glimpse yesterday.
From the moment his private jet touched down at Essendon Airport in the morning and he was whisked away by car to Crown Casino, Tiger Woods’ plans were top secret.
We know Woods went to Crown because the three media helicopters tracking his car told us so.
But even those charged with promoting this week’s Australian Masters at Kingston Heath, to which he will drag sell-out crowds of 20,000 a day, professed to know nothing of his schedule.
