Tiger Woods attends Michael Jordan's wedding
Tiger Woods made the 30-minute trip from his home in Jupiter, Fla., to pal Michael Jordan's wedding Saturday -- without girlfriend Lindsey Vonn –- and looked sharp in a grey suit and dark sunglasses, according to a photo posted on TMZ.com.
Jordan married Yvette Prieto, a 35-year-old former model, after five years of dating. A reception at Jack Nicklaus's Bear's Club in Jupiter followed. And what a venue it was. The 40,000 square-foot reception site barely surpassed the size Jordan's nearby home, which totals 35,000 square feet. Jordan is the owner of the NBA's Charlotte Bobcats and an avid golfer. Woods and Jordan, two of the most accomplished athletes of all time, have been friends for several years. "He's been like my big brother, so it's been great to have him part of my life," Woods once said of Jordan. The two are also sometime golf partners who enjoy trash-talking with each other; they did so publically at the 2007 Quail Hollow pro-am [photo].
People Magazine reported that Woods's girlfriend Vonn was invited to wedding, but was not able to attend. Woods was free due to his customary three-week break from tournament play after the Masters. He will also be absent this week at the Wells Fargo Championship and will return to action at the Players Championship May 9-12.
