Champions' Breakfast :: October 25, 2015 Tiger, Bond, Ko & Cake

2015 10 Tw007

The name’s Woods. Tiger Woods.


When you’re Tiger Woods, you can get most things you want. For example, a private screening of the new James Bond film for ‘friends and family’. The 14-time major winner – laid up after having more back surgery last month – tweeted about getting to see Spectre, the 24th film in the 007 franchise, over the weekend. Seems he liked it, too…

Gone but not forgotten


Yesterday, October 25, marked 16 years since three-time major winner Payne Stewart was killed in a plane crash. Feels like as good a time as any to revisit this great moment from the 1999 US Open.

Insert generic 'This cake looks awesome' headline here


Check out the cool birthday cake Hollywood beauty Reese Witherspoon (Legally Blonde, Walk The Line) made for her son's 12th birthday. He's a bit of a golf nut, apparently.

And finally...


Lewis Hamilton won the F1 drivers' world championship for the second successive year. Guess that means we can forget about a golfer winning the BBC 'Sports Personality of the Year' award again this year...

Oi! You! Yes, you!
