Tiger Woods and Navy SEALs

| February 24, 2021

Just in case there is a rush on this – there are several misstatements that Tiger Woods was a Navy SEAL.

Tiger Woods was not a SEAL.

Woods visited the SEALs a few times and got the VIP treatment. He was able to shoot and do other things.

His agent was said Tiger was tough because of his Navy SEAL training, but perhaps this was a misstatement so it should be given the benefit of the doubt.

Tiger Woods did say he wanted to be a Navy SEAL.

From the Navy Times:

Tiger Woods just wanted to be a Navy SEAL: report

Tiger Woods, an athlete who at one time dominated his sport like few athletes in history, wishes he’d just enlisted in the Navy and become a SEAL.

That’s one of many revelations in an explosive story posted Thursday by the sports network ESPN, which details Woods’ personal and professional turmoil over the past 10 years since the death of his beloved father, a Green Beret.
.
Woods has been given special access to the Navy’s most elite combat teams. He has been invited to secretive training facilities in the California desert and been taught to shoot, clear buildings and even jump from aircraft, the article claims, backing up reporting with images and interviews with former and active-duty SEALs.

    Funny, I was always under the impression that Tiger really wasn’t welcome around the spec ops guys anymore.

      Hack Stone knows exactly how those Navy SEALs feel. When Hack was in Saudi Arabia for Desert Shield, Steve Martin stopped by his camp for a USO tour. Steve Martin participated in all of the normal celebrity events, signing autographs, posing for pictures, yadda yadda yadda. As Steve was climbing into the vehicle to take him to the next event, Hack yelled out “Steve, let’s do lunch sometime!” He replied “I’ll call you.” 31 years and some change later, Hack Stone is still waiting for that phone call.

    I highly doubt he made the claim.

    Tiger may have some challenges with women, golf, drugs, etc., but he is not an idiot.

      I hope, despite all the memes and the jealousy, and general shit slinging that the public and the interanetz does, that he not only survives, but heals, unless it’s God’s plan that he doesn’t.
      That would suck but hey, we all know not, what each of our plans are.

    I have a Lady Friend that took a trip out to San Diego awhile back. She did the whole nickle tour, The Zoo where she fed the seals some fishes. Sea World where she played with the seals in all of their training. Fed them some fishes too. Even went out to the beach where there was a buncha seals in the water and on the sand doing their thing. After playing a few rounds of putt putt she returned home and watched the plumber change the wax seal on her toilet (where Tiger’s golf career is now).

    Yep, she’s legit…she’s a seal trainer…that golfs.

      Tigers recent leg problems are sure to seal the deal
      on his career as a golpher.

      For many years I bragged that I saw Shamu, the killer whale, whenever his name was brought up.

      My world came crashing down when I found out that many of the killer whales at Sea World were named Shamu over the years.

      Next they’ll tell me that there were several Lassies.

    Looks like he should have been getting some training down at the DMV.

  5. Bill R. says:

    Tiger Woods, a SEAL? Tiger Woods never served, period. Who the hell would think he was a SEAL?

    “y, wishes he’d just enlisted in the Navy and become a SEAL”

    Horseshit.
    To paraphrase an old saying, “There was nothing between Tiger and a Navy recruiter but fear and atmosphere”.

  7. Sparks says:

    Tiger Woods wanted to be a SEAL? Hmmm?

    On another note, I woke up at 3 AM in a lurch when I realized there were more nipples in the world than people.

    Go figure.

    • MarineDad61 says:

      Sparks,
      There’s more FEMALE nipples in the world than people,
      assuming the 50.2%/49.8% statistic is true.

      Just ask Tiger, who until just recently was trying to count them.
      In person.

    Do you know what Tiger Woods and Baby SEALS have in Common…???

    They both get Clubbed by Norwegians….!!!!
