ESPN just came out with this article. Tiger would have been a SEAL if he wasn't a golfer.

Then there's the story of the lunch, which spread throughout the Naval Special Warfare community. Guys still tell it, almost a decade later. Tiger and a group of five or six went to a diner in La Posta. The waitress brought the check and the table went silent, according to two people there that day. Nobody said anything and neither did Tiger, and the other guys sort of looked at one another.

Finally one of the SEALs said, "Separate checks, please."

The waitress walked away.

"We are all baffled," says one SEAL, a veteran of numerous combat deployments. "We are sitting there with Tiger f---ing Woods, who probably makes more than all of us combined in a day. He's shooting our ammo, taking our time. He's a weird f---ing guy. That's weird s---. Something's wrong with you."

Some of the richest guys I know are cheapskates

One guy who retired from my work, easily a millionaire, still comes in here to get free coffee and to use our postage, fax machine, copier, etc

Cheap fuck

You're referring to Eldrick circa 2006. The Tiger of today is a shitty golfer AND a shitty person.

The SEAL story is no surprise. He is a notorious cheapskate. His public persona was a facade.

This will not surprise many in the catering industry, ask any waitress.

Not sure why guys would expect some other guy to pay for their meals.



I mean Tiger has always been a dick and the RIGHT thing to do would have been to pay for everyone lunch as a form of appreciation for taking the time out to show him things.  However, he's not obligated to.


Don't expect another man to pay for your meal simply because his check is bigger than yours.

That was alluded to in the story.  People always think that celebrities with bigger paychecks should be picking up the bill, when in reality he should just be expected to pay as any normal person would.

However, you're right - for all the things the SWC did for him, a small token of appreciation would've been to pay.

Not surprised. Heard he doesn't tip, ever. I was at a pga tournament one time inside the ropes. Followed tiger around for a while. I was 5-10ft away from him and the way he talked to people, he was just a dick to everyone.

Unless the SEALS were planning on putting out later that night, why would they EXPECT someone to pay for their meals???

The dude has been rich and famous since he was about 16.
It wouldn't surprise me if he was socially retarded.
If I was tiger, I would want to pull out my credit card as little as possible and would always have a money person to handle those issues.
I also don't expect Tiger to carry around a wad of cash.
It wouldn't surprise me if he didn't fully understand the social expectations of paying for dinner, using up someone's ammo, tipping, etc.

My daughter is 15, she just got her first debit card. I make her pay for dinner and tip with her card.
She had no clue about tipping until now.  If she got rich and famous tomorrow,  I would never let her use her own card or sign a receipt etc.

Get what you are saying.   If it was simply we went to dinner with Tiger and expected him to pay, sure.

But it was, we did this favor for Tiger, gave him access etc., the decent thing of Tiger to do, just like anyone in that situation, would be to pick.up the tab.

It sounds like Tiger basically invited himself to shoot with these guys. Using THEIR weapons, ammo, and time. It would be common DECENCY for a billionare to pickup the tab. I don't think they expected him to pay the full tab, but the least he could of done was grab the bill first then not sit there like a looney toon.

9/10 when I take new shooters to the range using my ammo, firearms, and time they will pickup the bill for lunch, coffee, whatever it is. I don't expect it, but it is a nice gesture. Some of these people make minimum wage.

It should have been:

SEAL: "Separate checks, please."

Tiger: "No way, guys this one's on me.  Thanks for a great day, and all the things you do."

But it wasn't.  It was a bunch of grown men, staring at another man, expecting him to pick up the tab, which is pitiful enough in it's own right, but to continue to tell the story about him not paying for them, years after the fact . . .  


If you had Tiger Woods money and everyone knew it, and every time you went out to eat with people, they all just stared and waited for you when the check came . . .  that might affect the way you approach those types of things.


ETA:  For all I know, Tiger may have been thinking that they should pay for his meal, because they got to spend time with him.  I'm not defending him.  I just think that repeating the story about how you expected someone to pick up your dinner tab is poor form, and reflects more about you.

Yeah, I'm really not sure what part of that people are missing or not understanding.  I would think the ammo alone would be valued at more than the dinner tab

Actually, we paid for the ammo.  Does that mean Tiger owes us a dinner?    
Link Posted: 4/21/2016 12:15:15 PM EDT
The ammo wasn't on their dime (it was issued) but the time and effort to change their routine for an outsider was on their dime. I'm sure they all had better things to do than play babysitter.

Common courtesy dictates that you pick up the tab when someone has gone out of their way for you. Maybe he didn't want to offend them by throwing money around, who knows. He just sounds socially weird.

He should have at least offered to pay since he got to play with their toys and use their ammo. Yet I have heard him and most other pro-golfers are all asshole. Just like most pro sport people. Michael Jordon being one of the biggest pricks there is and he is 10 times worse than Tiger. Then on the opposite side you get ones like Shaq that is one of the nicest guys you will every meet. Wonder why so much of a difference between them.

Under similar circumstances I would have invited those guys out by insisting , up-front, that it was on me.
I would have added that if any of them found themselves in Texas near me to call and I'd do it again.

I'm not quite sure where to start.

How about IT WASN"T "YOUR" AMMO.  That was property of the United States Navy, and therefore, not the property not of the people at lunch with Woods.

I'll then point out there is this pesky thing call ETHICS LAWS AND REGULATIONS, back by the UCMJ for military personnel.  These place specific prohibitions on the giving and receiving of any item of value by a federal employee, including members of Naval Special Warfare units.  These rules apply both ways, and cap legitimate gifts at $20 per person per year.  I learned early on in my short fed.gov career that the really smart federal employee (military included) does not accept any gift from anyone when at work (family members are excluded from this, as are things like retirement gifts).  In addition, many corporations that do business with the fed.gov have policies that prohibit the giving of anything of value, including meals.  My last employer, for example, it was grounds for automatic termination.

Lastly, just because Woods is wealthy doesn't entitle anyone, including members of Naval Special Warfare units, to expect him to buy anything. That is thinking so far into the "give me my free shit" I am surprised to read that members of the Navy, particularly Naval Special Warfare, would contemplate it.

Yup, this same thing probably happens any time he goes to dinner with someone because he has more money.  Shit's got to get old pretty quick.

I'll then point out there is this pesky thing call ETHICS LAWS AND REGULATIONS, back by the UCMJ for military personnel.  These place specific prohibitions on the giving and receiving of any item of value by a federal employee, including members of Naval Special Warfare units.  These rules apply both ways, and cap legitimate gifts at $20 per person per year.  I learned early on in my short fed.gov career that the really smart federal employee (military included) does not accept any gift from anyone when at work (family members are excluded from this, as are things like retirement gifts).  In addition, many corporations that do business with the fed.gov have policies that prohibit the giving of anything of value, including meals.  My last employer, for example, it was grounds for automatic termination.

Lastly, just because Woods is wealthy doesn't entitle anyone, including members of Naval Special Warfare units, to expect him to buy anything. That is thinking so far into the "give me my free shit" I am surprised to read that members of the Navy, particularly Naval Special Warfare, would contemplate it.

You must not have been much of a bureaucrat.

That wasn't a gift.  They were doing "NSWF recruiting activity"with assistance of Mr Woods.
Hey can I help,it if the drug rep,ordered 80 entrees and couldn't finish them and asked us to help eat them.

I think he went into a tailspin after his dad died. I fully understand the anguish that comes along with that.

Not sure why guys would expect some other guy to pay for their meals.
I mean Tiger has always been a dick and the RIGHT thing to do would have been to pay for everyone lunch as a form of appreciation for taking the time out to show him things.  However, he's not obligated to.





Don't expect another man to pay for your meal simply because his check is bigger than yours.

True.  




On the other hand, I'm anything but rich and if a bunch of SEALS take me shooting with their weapons and their ammo, I'm going to buy them lunch, because I'm not a fucking choad.

Having had a brief run in with a couple of seals egos in my 0311 days, I prolly wouldn't be buying them lunch either if I got rich at some point. Prolly wouldn't hang out at the range. I'll stick with the force recon bubbas, now THOSE MFer were solid.

Indeed. Some contractors have to set up special arrangements so FedGov employees can pay for donuts at meetings. Any other customers, it's "here, have a Krispy Creme." The feds have to cough up a couple bucks.

Why would a grown man automatically assume that somebody else is going to pay for their meal?

I think it cant be underscored how WEIRD he is.  I doubt it was him being cheap as much as he's just an ignorant tool nag to certain social norms.

Some of the richest guys I know are cheapskates

One guy who retired from my work, easily a millionaire, still comes in here to get free coffee and to use our postage, fax machine, copier, etc

Cheap fuck

I only know a couple of very wealthy people. There is a touch of paranoia with them thinking everyone is using them or after what they have (I'm sure they have reason to feel this way), and they are a bit jaded from everyone thinking they should always pay for everyome and everything simply because they can.
