Tiger Woods Book Tells All

Posted Tuesday May 4, 2010 8:06 AM GMT

As a writer for People magazine, Steve Helling had access to all kinds of information about Tiger Woods’ philandering over the years. And he’s finally spilling it.

The entertainment journalist says he waited this long to spill the beans because he didn’t want to lose access to the pro golfer.

"Over the years, I had heard rumors of Tiger's partying - drunken nights at the clubs, dirty dancing with other women, phone numbers slipped to pretty blonds - but I didn't follow up on the tips," he writes in “Tiger.”

"Negative coverage of Tiger - or even positive coverage that wasn't approved and micromanaged - would often result in swift, permanent excommunication from the Tiger Woods camp. It was in everyone's best interest to sweep the rumors under the rug."

"[Tiger] dated a lot of girls even after he was married to Elin. When he was filming some commercials at Universal Studios, he asked out a few girls, and this was after he was married. If they said no, he'd move on.'"
