Tiger Woods reportedly had an affair with the ex-wife of golfer Jason Dufner, as the National Enquirer and Radar Online are reporting that Woods cheated on then-girlfriend Lindsey Vonn with the ex-wife of Dufner, Amanda Boyd.
According to Fox Sports, the National Enquirer reported on Tuesday that Woods and Amanda Dufner, the ex-wife of fellow PGA Golfer Jason Dufner, had a "serious" connection after Woods previously had a "thing" for Dufner. Mail Online reports that Woods cheated sometime in February and after that he was confronted by Vonn and the two broke up. The report says that it was during this time that Dufner and his wife were getting a divorce and it may have happened in Southern California.
Woods previously was with Vonn for a long stretch and that was the most high profile relationship he has had since his marriage with Elin Nordegren. That relationship blew up after the serial cheating by Woods went public and also after a Thanksgiving incident in which Nordegren reportedly went after Woods with a golf club. Woods has not been able to bounce back on the course since all of that happened and he also now will take another hit to his reputation off the course if it's true.
The sources reported to the Enquirer that Woods and Dufner have had a "steamy affair" for "months" and that "she's known as a big flirt with the other players." This likely will make things awkward for Woods if he is paired with Dufner in the future and it also likely will come up the next time that Woods talks to the media. While tabloid reports are often just that, when it comes to Woods and his past history, this surely will be a front and center story once he gets back in action.
Woods has not won a major in years and he comes in after having a tough time at the US Open and now he is back in the news, but not with the headlines he likely wants. The rumors could be just rumors, but with numerous reports coming out, there's a good chance this one has legs after the breakup with Vonn was front page news for the tabloids. Woods reportedly had Dufner's ex visit during practices for the US Open.
The Enquirer reports that Woods and 27-year-old Amanda Boyd, had a serious connection, writing that it was at first "innocent flirting, but earlier this year it became serious". The report says Vonn split up with Woods over cheating and this could have been the incident that she was referring to. Dufner and his wife previously divorced earlier this year and now the report about Woods has gone public.
"Even though Tiger dated Lindsey for years, he had a 'thing' for Amanda. At first, it was just innocent flirting, but earlier this year it became serious," reported sources to the Enquirer.
