Tiger Gets Hitched - No Longer Married To Golf

Now that the wedding is done and the $3 Million check has been written for it, maybe Tiger can start concentrating on Golf again. Tiger has fallen to the #3 overall ranking in the world over the past few months, no doubt the wedding planning has been weighing on his mind. There was more security than some third world countries at the event. Lucky Guy...not only did he marry the nanny, she also comes with a twin sister! "......And Twins."

Tiger Woods married Swedish model Elin Nordegren at an exclusive resort in Barbados, according to witnesses. The sunset ceremony reportedly cost $1.5 million.
The Barbados Daily Nation quoted unidentified sources as saying that the event cost $1.5 million. Woods reportedly imported 500 red roses for the ceremony.
The rock group Hootie and the Blowfish performed, witnesses said, before fireworks lit the night along Barbados' west coast.
The couple spent their wedding night on a yacht, which was named "Privacy."

Resort employees erected sheets of plywood and a crane hoisted large plants to try to block views of the event.
Two photographers approaching the reception area were escorted away by Barbadian police, who helped provide security, along with private guards and a Barbados Coast Guard cutter offshore.
Other photographers crouched in a nearby bushy area, from as early as 1 p.m., to take pictures of guests entering the country club. Others were on the roof of a nearby house.
Security guards from Sandy Lane tried in vain to persuade a nearby resident to throw the media off her son's property. The woman explained she was the landlord and that she had granted permission.
Woods' precautions appeared to encompass hiring the only helicopter charter company on the island, which said it was booked solid Tuesday -- a move that prevented journalists and photographers from flying over the event.
He also rented out the entire hotel, which has about 200 rooms ranging in price from $700 to $8,000 a night, according to a hotel source.
