Truth & Rumors: Kaymer caddies for girlfriend

Kaymer You might have heard that Martin Kaymer, arguably the world's best golfer, pulled out of Tiger's annual tournament at Sherwood CC, but you probably didn't know why. Turns out, Kaymer's comely gal pal, Allison Michelletti, has designs on possibly becoming a professional golfer herself, and she is playing in the Ladies European Tour Pre-Qualifying. Evidently she couldn't find a decent caddie for the event, so the world's third-ranked player decided to haul her sticks and read some putts. According to a report on Devil Ball Golf, Michelletti hasn't fared very well so far, with a painful 89 in the first round, but has improved since Kaymer picked up the bag.   Searching TigerFor years Tiger Woods has been among the most popular celebrities in the world, but after his well publicized car crash, divorce, and loss of millions in endorsements, you'd think his popularity would slip a bit. No question he's not as well liked as he once was, but by one measure he's still incredibly "popular." According to AOL's Year End Hot Searches, Tiger was tops among celebrity searches, finishing ahead of Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga and Kim Kardashian. When you consider that a professional golfer's private life was as interesting to Internet surfers as the BP oil spill, the new iPad, and bedbugs, it becomes clear just how massive a celebrity the world's former No. 1 player really is. In addition, Softpedia reports that Tiger was the third most searched topic on bing.com (Kim K. beat him out this time), as well as the third most searched person overall (ahead of Lady Gaga and President Obama). Not bad for golfer whose college nickname was Urkel.  President Clinton sells autographed clubs on eBayWe all have a couple of old putters or a set of irons sitting in the garage that we'd like to get rid of, but it's kind of surprising when the former Commander in Chief decides to unload some sticks on eBay. In this case however, it's to benefit a good cause, the William J. Clinton Foundation. Established with the purpose of alleviating poverty, improving global health, and protecting the environment (among other worthwhile endeavors), the Clinton Foundation is working with eBay to raise money by auctioning off a number of prizes including a private dinner with the President, and you guessed it, a set of Bubba's game-used, autographed clubs. The auction, which is live now, ends on December 2nd, so get your bids in quick. Mulligans not included.  (Photo: Chris Graythen/Getty Images)
