The truth of Tiger's secret life is stranger than fictionIn the June issue of Vanity Fair journalist Mark Seal continues his expose on the secret life of the world's best golfer in, The Temptation of Tiger Woods, Part II: Losing Control, in which he reveals in-depth information on everything from the troubled phenom's disastrous pre-Thanksgiving car accident to his management team's mistakes to his many illicit liaisons. Among the wide variety of topics Seal covers, the most interesting tidbits come from some of Tiger's special lady friend's themselves, including seemingly "normal," women:

Cori Rist, who met Woods in a New York City nightclub, saw his childlike side, from his fondness for watching cartoons while eating Froot Loops to his insecurities as a boyfriend—according to Rist, he wanted to know where she was and what she was doing all the time. “From the moment I’d wake up, he’d be texting: ‘Who’s with you? Are you alone?’” she tells Seal. “It was almost like high school, when you call someone all the time: ‘Where are you? How do you feel about me?’ He needed constant attention and reassurance.”
Adult-film star Veronica Siwik-Daniels tells Seal that Woods insisted she quit the porn business, because he couldn’t stand to see her with another man. She also says she became pregnant by Woods twice, but never told him; according to Siwik-Daniels, the first instance ended with a miscarriage, the second with an abortion that she got when she came to feel that Woods was cheating on her—and not with his wife.

"Well, I get asked every day. Every day I do media, I get asked it, so it doesn't go away. Even when I'm at home, paparazzi still follow us, helicopters still hover around,"
"Does it test you? Yes, of course it does. Is that any excuse? No, because I'm out there and I have the same opportunity as everybody else here in this field to shoot a good number, and I didn't do that."

"It's absolutely unbelievable, I don't know where all those birdies came from," said Ishikawa. "Seeing my score improve by 12 strokes at the end - it's like a dream.
