*Tiger Woods’ lackluster performance in golf nowadays could come from not tipping service workers, according to the author of a new book on the pro golf star.
During an appearance on the Conan O’Brien to promote his book “Tiger, Meet My Sister … And Other Things I Probably Shouldn’t Have Said,” Rick Reilly compared Woods’ tipping habits to tips from Wood’s PGA rival Phil Mickelson.
Media sources note that Mickelson is known for tipping generously. Woods, on the other hand, has a reputation for leaving little or no tip for workers. Reilly referenced a situation where he once saw Mickelson leave a little girl a $100 tip for a 50 cent cup of lemonade as well as times where the golfer gave his umbrella to the homeless when it’s raining.
For Mickelson, tipping comes second nature as he gives those doing work at the Masters $2,500 for the work they’ve done during the tournament. The reason for Woods leaving little to no tip for valets, wait staff at restaurants and anyone else who provides a service leaves many wondering, considering he’s made more than $1 billion in his career
You need a court order to get Tiger’s wallet open,” Reilly joked to O’Brien.
