Most Tiger Woods jokes these days are one-liners that emerged in the aftermath of the Woods' car accident and cheating scandal beginning in late 2009, but others center on his confident demeanor. Other jokes focus on high-minded critiques of serious golf strategy. Sports journalism doesn't get much better than this, folks! But, let's face it, when we think of Tiger Woods jokes today most of our thoughts turn to quips about the scandals.

For example:

Q: What's worse than Tiger Woods driving your Cadillac Escalade?

A: Dick Cheney riding shotgun.


Q: How do you "Tiger-proof" a golf course?

A: By strategically placing fire hydrants around it.

Late-Night Television

The late-night talk show hosts had a field day with Woods' troubles in late 2009 and into 2010, after he crashed his SUV into a fire hydrant outside his home; after revelations about Woods' many alleged extramarital affairs came to light; after his separation and then divorce from Elin Nordegren. Daniel Kurtzman compiled some of the best late-night funnies about Tiger from that era.

Conan O'Brien

"Sources close to Tiger Woods say that he's spending his days now eating cereal and watching cartoons. In other words, Tiger Woods has gone from living every man's fantasy life, to living every man's real life."

"Another woman has been linked to Tiger Woods and this one is 48 years old. Or as Tiger refers to her, 'my senior tour.'"

"A new study says that 86 percent of kids who regularly watch TV can recognize Tiger Woods. Which makes sense, because he may be their dad."

Stephen Colbert

"Tiger always gives 110 percent. That is why he gave 100 percent to his wife and still had 10 percent left over for his alleged mistress."


Jokes about Woods' domestic troubles began making the rounds almost as soon as the news about his car crash and allegations about extramarital affairs did. Some of the jokes most commonly heard on those topics include these:

  • The police asked Tiger's wife how many times she hit him. "I can't remember," Elin said, "just put me down for a 5."
  • Ping has a new set of irons called Elins. They're clubs you can beat Tiger with.
  • What does Tiger Woods have in common with a baby seal? They've both been clubbed by a Norwegian. (Of course, Elin is actually Swedish. But poetic license is allowed in jokes.)
  • Did you hear Tiger changed his name to Cheetah?
  • Tiger's other women aren't mistresses. They're provisionals.
  • Did you hear Nike's new motto? Just do me.
  • What's the difference between Tiger Woods and Santa Clause? Santa stopped at three ho's.
  • Tiger crashed into a fire hydrant and a tree. He couldn't decide between a wood and an iron.
  • What's the difference between a car and a golf ball? Tiger can drive a golf ball 400 yards.
  • Tiger Woods is so rich that he owns lots of expensive cars. Now he has a hole in one.
  • Tiger has a new movie coming out. It's called Crouching Tiger, Hidden Hydrant.
