With Phil Mickelson's partial purchase of the San Deigo Padres becoming official this week, just one question remains to be asked: Why doesn't Tiger — the only pro at Kiawah with more money than Lefty — buy a team, too?
Well, the answer isn't lack of interest. It's that the man has expensive tastes, even as a fan. According to his Tuesday press conference:
Q. Based on the news with Phil and the Padres, down the road could you ever see yourself maybe wanting a piece of one of your favorite teams? TIGER WOODS: Absolutely. I just need a lot more money. My teams are the Lakers, Dodgers and the Raiders; so I've got to play really well.
In other words, anyone can buy the Padres. But paying $2.15 billion for the Dodgers? Gonna have to add a few more logos to the bag, Tiger.
