Tiger Woods isn’t flashy with the cash y’all, despite being the wealthiest golfer/athlete on the planet.
Tiger Woods might never return to the top of theWorld Golf Rankings, but at least the disgraced former star has earned a No. 1 ranking in something.
Woods, despite a net worth of $500 million, is the worst celebrity tipper in America. Eldrick’s excuse: He never carries cash. Woods is said to have made a woman in Las Vegas tip for him when they went out. While playing $10,000-a-hand blackjack, Tiger re-pocketed a $5 tip after realizing he tipped her early in the night.
The golfer isn’t the only sports star making the Miami New Times Short Order blog list of “Top Ten Cheapest Celebrity Tippers.”
The story was put together by Lee Klein of the New Times, who says he compiled information from more than a half-dozen sites devoted to tipping.
“The same names kept coming up again and again,” Klein says.
LeBron James was one of them. The King was given a gift from the gods in the form of basketball talent, but leaving a gratuity is a different story. James, with a net worth of $120 million, turns into a cheapskate when the bill arrives. The Miami Heat star is ranked fourth on the New Times list, thanks in part to a generous $10 tip on a $800 bill from a Cleveland steak house he made stay open until 4 a.m.
