Tiger Woods' Wife Wins Damages In Nude Photo Hoax
The wife of golfer Tiger Woods won $183,250 and an apology Friday from an Irish magazine that published an abusive article and a faked nude photo of her.
Trevor White, publisher of The Dubliner, conceded that the article -- published in September 2006 when Ireland was hosting the Ryder Cup -- "was cheap, tasteless, and deliberately offensive. It was also completely untrue."
The article visibly angered Woods during the opening day of competition, which the United States lost to Europe. His wife, Elin Nordegren Woods, welcomed the settlement in a statement Friday.
