An Irish magazine has infuriated Tiger Woods and the rest of the U.S. Ryder Cup golf team by calling their wives "filth" and running bogus porno pics of Woods' wife.
Editors at The Dubliner apparently didn't know that phony photos purporting to be the golf great's sexy, 26-year-old Swedish spouse have been floating around the Internet for years.
Clueless Dubliner columnist Lou Slips thought they were real — and used them as an excuse to write a scathing personal attack on Tiger and the other U.S. golfers, who have gathered in Ireland for the biennial America vs. Europe tournament.
"Most American golfers are married to women who cannot keep their clothes on in public," Slips declared under the headline: "Ryder Cup Filth for Dublin?"
The intensely private Woods is reportedly "appalled" by the baseless slam, according to the U.K. Daily Mail, which broke the story.
When the attack article ran, Woods and many of the other U.S. players and their wives had already arrived in Dublin for Friday's tee-off.
The "Filth" layout included a nude pic allegedly of the lithe Nordegren — but really of a D-cup model who looks more like Pamela Anderson.
Despite the obvious fakery, Slips declared that Woods' wife "can be found in a variety of sweaty poses on porn sites across the Web."
Woods wasn't the only American pro golfer to see his wife slimed.
The mag also ran a shot of golfer David Toms' wife, Sonya, clad in a teeny white bikini, and quoted her as saying she finds it "liberating" to wear at home.
Chad Campbell's wife, Amy, was derided as a "large-chested singer who entered 'American Idol' but didn't get anywhere."
Slips then insinuates that "geeky" Jim Furyk's wife, Tabitha, married him for his money.
"Isn't there a law against people like this?" he finishes the sarcastic column.
No one at The Dubliner could be reached for comment. Woods' spokesman, Mark Steinberg, declined to comment.
The K Club — which is both the site of the tournament and the place where the Americans are staying — has reportedly banned The Dubliner from the premises.
