Tiger’s rep denies Boyd affair rumors: Tiger Woods Amanda Boyd, Serial cheater Tiger Woods is dating the ex-wife of a friend and fellow professional golfer, a report claims.
The 39-year old is said to be having a ‘steamy affair’ with Amanda Boyd, 27 – who divorced former PGA Championship winner Jason Dufner in April.
According to The National Enquirer, Woods and Boyd started their relationship while he was still with Lindsey Vonn.
However Woods’s agent Mark Steinberg has branded the rumored romance a ‘complete lie’. In an e-mail to FOX411 he said the claims were fabricated and false.
The Enquirer said the couple became an item after ‘flirting on the tour circuit’. They have allegedly been together for several months – and a source told the magazine the relationship is now ‘serious’.
Daily Mail Online revealed in May that Woods was dumped by Vonn because she caught him cheating in February during the Farmers Insurance Open – a week before Boyd and Dufner separated.
Her official explanation on Facebook was that they both led led ‘incredibly hectic lives that force us to spend a majority of our time apart’.
But friends said the real reason was that Woods had had a ‘relapse in the sex department’ and Vonn found out he had been with other women.
His rumored current girlfriend Boyd married Dufner, 38, in May 2012. He won the major in 2013 but has since struggled with back problems.
According to divorce papers filed on March 16, Amanda and Jason suffered an ‘irretrievable breakdown of the marriage’.
They separated on February 17 due to a ‘complete incompatibility of temperament’.
A source told the Enquirer that Boyd is considered a ‘flirt’ among Dufner’s colleagues on the PGA tour and, even though her ex-husband didn’t seen Woods as a close pal, he considered him a ‘trusted colleague’.
They have both played on the same U.S. Ryder Cup team.
The relationship is being kept a secret by the pair, but Woods is believed to have flown Boyd from her home in Alabama to Seattle as he prepared for last month’s U.S. Open – where he missed the cut.
His performance was distracted when a plan carrying a banner reading ‘cheater’ flew over the course at University Place in Washington.
Michelle Braun, a former Hollywood madame revealed that between 2006 and 2007 the former World Number One paid upwards of $40,000 for six ‘pay-for-sex dates.’
And in May this year, when Vonn broke off the relationship, it was because he’d been spotted with a woman.
A friend told Daily Mail Online: ‘When Tiger realized he was seen, he became concerned and eventually he decided to confess to Lindsey. Something he didn’t do with Elin.
‘He came clean and I give him credit for that.
‘Yes, Tiger cheated again. But it wasn’t with anyone special. He really wanted Lindsey to be the one. But he blew it again.
‘He can’t help himself. He’s got an addiction. He relapsed.
‘Knowing Tiger, he doesn’t even see it as cheating because there’s no romance or feeling there. It’s just a stress reliever, like a high-ball or two after a bad day.’
The friend said that despite pleas from peers and relatives to keep attending his self-mandated therapy sessions, Tiger stopped going completely – leading to the alleged ‘one-time slip’.
